The matchup between Lakers and Warriors, which would have the attraction of another showdown between LeBron James and Stephen Curry, had already been reported by Shams Charania a few days ago, however, the other NBA Finals team would also be home on tip-off day.

Speaking of the 76ers-Celtics duel, there is a high probability that Kevin Durant will be present in that game, although he is currently still a member of the Brooklyn Nets, however, the latest reports indicate that Philadelphia and Boston are the last two teams that have joined the race to get the two-time NBA champion.

Philadelphia and Boston's frustrating eliminations last season

The Celtics lost in six games to the Warriors in the NBA Finals, however, they returned to the NBA Finals after more than a decade and would have the opening game of the season as a great showcase to honor the recently deceased Bill Russell.

For their part, the 76ers remain in the Eastern Conference Semifinals where they were also eliminated in six games by the Miami Heat.

According to Shams Charania's report, both games will be broadcast nationally in the United States on TNT.
