NBA restart begins TODAY

The restart of the NBA season begins tonight (July 29th) with games between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Utah Jazz, and the L.A. Lakers vs. the L.A. Clippers in the league’s “bubble” at Walt Disney World. Starting Friday and going through August 14th there will be at least four and as many as SEVEN games per day on the three courts at the complex.

A 16-team playoff bracket will be finalized next month, and 12 of the 22 teams at Disney have already clinched spots based on their records before the season was suspended in March. Eight teams didn’t make it to the restart based on their pre-pandemic records: Golden State; Minnesota, Cleveland, Detroit, Atlanta, New York, Charlotte and Chicago.
