Later that night, ex-Raptors guard/forward Danny Green, who signed with the Los Angeles Lakers last month, faces Leonard and the Clippers.

March 5 will mark the first meeting of the season between the Raptors and hometown Golden State Warriors, who lost to Toronto in last season's Finals.

There is a reasonable chance shooting guard Klay Thompson will be in the Golden State lineup following his recovery from a torn ACL against the Raptors in the Finals.

Boston will have 25 games broadcast on national channels, starting with their season opener in Philadelphia to face former Celtic Al Horford and the 76ers on October 23.

The team will embark on two five-game road trips (Nov. 8-16 and March 1-9) and the longest homestand is four games from February 21-28, which includes one of two appearances by reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. Each season, the league uses those dates as showcases for some of the most exciting players and teams, and the 2019-20 campaign will be no different.

However, it is not too early to examine some hard stretches of games in the upcoming season that could very well dictate the fate of the Warriors.

"If he plays well and the team is contending and in the playoffs and advancing late in the playoffs that should be enough", Abdul-Jabbar said.

The regular season ends with 13 games on April 15.

Kemba Walker will return to Charlotte as a Celtic on November 7, and we'll have our first look at Terry Rozier as a Hornet. Immediately after taking on Toronto in Boston, the Celtics will travel to NY for their first game against the Knicks. The most hard matchup of the month figures to be the Clippers' road game against the Philadelphia 76ers on February 11.
