The NBA schedule for the 2012-13 season will be released on Thursday night.
The complete 2012-13 NBA schedule is set to be released on Thursday night during a one-hour special at 5 p.m. MT on NBATV, and you can be certain that SB Nation Denver will have you covered on all the details regarding the Denver Nuggets' slate of games. SBNation.com will have full coverage for the rest of the NBA, so be head there for full schedule details. Everyone already knows that the Brooklyn Nets will open their new arena against the New York Knicks in a major matchup on TNT during opening week, but there is still plenty of mystery surrounding what other head-to-heads will be set for opening night and on Christmas.
Speaking of the Christmas games, be sure to check out Tom Ziller's proposed 15-game schedule for Christmas Eve and Christmas, where he wants to see a matchup between the Nuggets and the Utah Jazz. Why? Ziller jokes that "[y]ou can never go wrong with two potential eight seeds or JaVale McGee."
