NBA releases Cleveland Cavaliers full season schedule
CLEVELAND– The NBA released the Cleveland Cavaliers’ full 2016-2017 season schedule on Thursday.
The Cavs open the season in Cleveland on Oct. 25 against the New York Knicks. That’s when the 2016 NBA Championship banner will be revealed in Quicken Loans Arena. There will also be a rematch of the NBA Finals as Cleveland plays the Golden State Warriors at home on Christmas Day.
The preseason schedule was released earlier this week.
On Thursday, LeBron James announced in a video he is re-signing with Cleveland. The deal is reportedly worth $100 million over three years.
Last season, the Cavaliers went 57-25, and swept the Pistons and the Hawks in the first two rounds of the postseason. The team will look a little different this year as Matthew Dellavedova was traded to Milwaukee and Timofey Mozgov went to the Lakers, and Cleveland acquired Mike Dunleavy and Chris “Birdman” Anderson.
