Schedule release: Celtics open season October 23 in Philly

The leaked game that generated the biggest buzz, of course, was Toronto's first Christmas Day outing since 2001, the first home Christmas outing in Toronto, against the Boston Celtics. March 16 - This time the Warriors return to Toronto.

The longest homestand of the season is four games from February 21-28. It will also be the first time in franchise history that the Celtics will play outside of the US on Christmas Day.

National Basketball Association fans were incredibly happy today as the full schedule for the 2019-2020 season was officially unveiled.

The league announced its 2019-20 schedule on Monday, featuring another dip in back-to-back games for teams and a major change in the number of nationally televised games starting at 10:30 p.m. on the East coast.

The playoffs start April 18.

Among the most notable games on the schedule are Anthony Davis' return to New Orleans on November 27 and the return of the Lakers former young core with the Pelicans visiting L.A. on January 3.
