NBA releases schedule for upcoming season, Raptors back on U.S. TV

TORONTO - The Toronto Raptors will be back on national television in the United States when the 2014-15 NBA season tips off this fall.

The league schedule, which was released Wednesday, features four Raptors games to be televised on TNT or ESPN, and five others televised on NBA TV.

Toronto will start its 20th season in the NBA with a home game at Air Canada Centre on Oct. 29 versus the Atlanta Hawks. It's the fifth time in the past six seasons and the 14th time in team history that the club has started the regular season at home.

Nine of the club's first 12 games will be at home followed by 14 of the next 22 on the road. After the All-Star break in mid-February, the Raptors will play 18 of their final 29 games on the road to finish the regular season.

Noteworthy home games on the schedule include two visits from LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Dec. 5 and Mar. 4, while Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder make an early appearance as the season's second opponent at Air Canada Centre on Nov. 4. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin's Los Angeles Clippers will be in Toronto on Feb. 6 and Tim Duncan and the NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs play at ACC Feb. 8.

The Raptors will play 11 of their home games on Wednesdays and 10 more on Fridays. All 82 games will be aired nationally in Canada, though local television schedules will be released at a later date.

Toronto will play its 11th season in the Atlantic Division, joining Boston, Brooklyn, New York and Philadelphia. The Raptors were a member of the Central Division from 1995-2004.
