Boston Celtics rumors: National Basketball Association 2019 Christmas schedule includes Toronto Raptors vs. Celtics

Nevertheless, the National Basketball Association is so wide open right now that you could've had a seven-game slate without any gripes.

There's been a lot of talk recently about potentially shortening the National Basketball Association schedule given the injuries we saw during the Finals and the continued implementation of "load management" as a regular-season rest strategy.

More information will continue to be released, but as of now here's what we know about the 2019-20 National Basketball Association schedule, according to several reports.

This is certainly a strong National Basketball Association slate, one of the strongest in recent memory. O'Connor reported that this summer's FIBA World Cup was a factor in moving back the start date, presumably to give players more time to recover before the season.

The other two Christmas Day games include the Golden State Warriors clashing with the new-look Houston Rockets and is culminated by a power battle out East between the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers.

But according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the league is expected to go in a slightly different direction this year.

With Opening Night less than three months away, there is plenty of excitement in Los Angeles.

Even self-help author Marianne Williamson chimed in to say she does "have concern about what the Republicans would say". Warren, Buttigieg, and others pointed to the specific plans they have released to try to ameliorate racial inequality.

The four teams are clear winners of the early reported schedule releases, as the Raptors, Pelicans, Lakers and Clippers have all been selected to play on two of the marquee nights of the National Basketball Association regular season.

The Brooklyn Nets haven't seen Christmas Day action since the 2013/14 season, and despite being fresh off the heels of a playoff berth and possessing a strong roster-even without Kevin Durant-their streak of misfortune on the merriest day of the year will continue.

Christmas is the NBA's marquee regular-season showcase, and this season is no exception.

Fresh off a championship, the Raptors will play in their first Christmas Day game since 2001.

The Pelicans should have their main attraction, Zion Williamson, for the opener.

Toronto will be entering this season without superstar forward Kawhi Leonard after losing him in free agency.
