NBA schedule release: The games we can't wait to see in 2019-20

Mark your calendars -- the full NBA schedule is here.

The regular season tips off on Oct. 22, a week later than last year, and ends on April 15, with the playoffs beginning just three days later. There are 1,230 games on the schedule (trust us, we counted), but we've circled these as our must-see regular-season matchups for 2019-20. The calendar is complete with plenty of reunions, debuts, rookie showdowns and, of course, the biggest showdowns featuring the new-look Lakers and Clippers.

Editor's note: This list does not include the league's five Christmas Day games, which were revealed on Aug.
