It won't take long for Celtics fans to start missing Al Horford - he'll be lining up across from our guys literally from the jump of the NBA's 2019-20 season.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be one of two opening night games on October 22 but after that, their schedule for the remainder of the first week of the season appears to be considerably easier than last year's.

This will be the 10th time in the last 11 seasons that the season begins at home, but the atmosphere will be like nothing we've seen in these parts before because of what happened back in June. Kawhi Leonard's return to Toronto will reportedly come on December 11, when the Raptors host the Los Angeles Clippers.

Six of the team's final ten games of the season will be both at home and against playoff teams from last season, including the Portland Trail Blazers on March 27, Orlando Magic on April 3, Milwaukee Bucks on April 5, and Indiana Pacers on April 8. Furthermore, back-to-backs are at an all-time low for a fifth-straight campaign.

Toronto is scheduled to make 11 USA national television appearances - six on ESPN and five on TNT.

Leonard, meanwhile, will be making his debut for the Clippers, alongside newly-acquired talent Paul George.

Toronto will get its rings on October 22, when it plays host to New Orleans and No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson.

It is now official: LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers will open their 82-game National Basketball Association campaign against Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in a Clippers home game at Staples Center on October 22. It will be the Lakers' 21st consecutive season playing on Christmas Day.

Boston's home opener will be October 25 versus Toronto. January 20 - Martin Luther King Day game in Atlanta.

"Hopefully, we can add on to their portfolios by adding to the team, and get back to what Boston is known as, a team that is championship caliber, players every single year, and just fighting for that next banner that will make us even further away from the competition."
