Season 2020/21 preview
The 2020/21 season will be different in some ways to what the players and fans are used to. Instead of the normal 82-game season the upcoming regular season will consist of 72 games. The league games will begin on the 22nd of December and run until May if everything goes as planned. There will be a break for the All-Star event, and this will take place when the half season is played. The NBA schedule for the 2020/21 season will be released in two parts, first half of the games is already out while the rest of the fixtures will be released once we’ve reached half season. This is nothing you’ll have to worry about if you’re using the NBA TV-schedule at Liversportsontv.com since the match list will be updated as soon as any information on the game schedule is official.
The Play-in stage will be running from May 18-21. The 7th-10th placed team in the Eastern and Western Conference will play a round of games to decide who’re going to the postseason. The postseason is schedule to begin on the 22nd of May and will be much like we’re used to with four rounds of best-of-seven-games series. TV-guide and information on the Playoffs and the NBA Final will be out on Livesportsontv.com as we get closer to the match days.
It’s great to have the NBA back and be able to watch your team live on TV and stream again. The season is hard to predict as always but there’re a few teams that stands out. Of course, the current champions, LA Lakers, will be up there with the best as they try to defend their position as the best. They will have a hard time this season though with both the Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks and the LA Clippers shining as possible candidates for the NBA title.
