It seems like yesterday that the NBA 2020-21 schedule was out, which culminated in the Milwaukee Bucks taking home their first NBA title in a couple decades.

Now league insider Marc Stein is reporting that the new league schedule is expected to be released at some point in the next 7-10 days.

Last season, the league slate was shorter than that of a normal regular season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with just 72 games played.

This upcoming season, the NBA is scheduled to return to the normal 82-game slate with the COVID pandemic slowing down.

The season will tip-off on October 19th and run through April 13th.

A second play-in tournament will take place immediately after, with a full postseason set to begin on April 16th. The NBA Finals will start June 2nd.

There’s just one game from the 2021-22 season that we all know for sure will be played, and that’s the mid-season NBA All-Star Game to be played in Cleveland on February 20th.
