Article Summary:

Here are a few observations from this season’s schedule:

Intriguing matchups

Embiid vs. Jokic

Nov. 18, at Denver; March 14, vs. Nuggets

We were deprived of the matchup of the two best big men in the NBA last season.

The defending champs

Nov. 9 vs. Bucks; Feb. 17 at Milwaukee; March 29 vs. Bucks

The Bucks were the team that many counted out, but credit to two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee for bringing home the Larry O’Brien trophy. Which side could potentially get desperate first?

Revenge games?

Butler, Lowry homecoming

Dec. 15 vs. Heat; Jan. 15 at Miami; March 5 at Miami; March 21 vs. Heat

You could throw this in the intriguing matchup category as well, but it’s more fun to think of it in a revenge game capacity.

Big Al and J-Rich return

Dec. 1 at Boston; Dec. 20 at Boston; Jan. 14 vs. Celtics; Feb. 15 vs. Celtics

Al Horford and Josh Richardson’s tenures in Philadelphia did not go well.
