Here Are All The Nationally Televised Games For The NBA’s Orlando Restart

Friday was a huge day for the NBA’s proposed restart in Orlando. The league and its Players Association agreed on the terms for the bubble league at Disney World, and later in the day, the schedule for the remainder of the “regular season” was released. It’s a packed slate of games, with the potential for seven games to take place in a single day with how the schedule is laid out.

The whole situation is extremely unique, but fortunately for those who are itching to watch some basketball, a whole host of games will take place on television. Twenty games will take place on ESPN or ABC, 18 will be broadcast on TNT, and 14 tilts will air on NBA TV. Every day from July 30 until August 14 is slated to have at least two televised games, with as many as four games on TV a day for much of that stretch.

Here is how the television schedule will play out once things tip off at the end of next month. (Note: All times EST)

There are still six more games that need to be all sorted out: TNT will air three games on August 13 at 4, 6:30, and 9 p.m., with ESPN following the same schedule a day later. It is unclear which teams will fill those slots. It is also unclear whether the untelevised games will appear on NBA League Pass.
