2017-18 NBA Season Tips Off Tonight
(Undated) — After one of the most wild offseasons in NBA history — the action starts on the court tonight. It’s not taking long for Kyrie Irving to make his return to Cleveland as the Celtics do battle with the Cavaliers in an Eastern Conference Finals rematch at Quicken Loans Arena. The Cavs traded Irving to Boston during the offseason to start the reshape of their roster that added Jae Crowder, Isaiah Thomas, Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade. LeBron James’ status for the game is an unknown due to a sprained ankle. The Celtics also signed Gordon Hayward, who joins up with Irving and Al Horford. The nightcap of the opening night doubleheader features the defending-champion Warriors versus the new-look Rockets in Oakland. Houston traded for Chris Paul, pairing him with James Harden to form one of the league’s top backcourts. Golden State is shooting for its third title in four years.
