NBA Restart: What to watch

The NBA season restart is almost upon us with league play set to begin in the early hours of the 31 July on the African continent. The pending restart has been made that much better with the announcement that NBA will be broadcast across the continent.

The NBA has declared the games during this restart “seeding games,” because they will determine were the teams in playoff contention will end the regular season, and thus determine their seeding (team placement in their conference standings) heading into the playoffs.

 

The league has set up a coronavirus-free safe ‘bubble’ for the 22 teams participating in the season restart at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

The first games on Friday 31 July and will be the Utah Jazz facing the New Orleans Pelicans at 00:30 Central African Time (CAT) and then the massive face-off between the LA Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers at 03:00 CAT.
