Early this evening, the NBA released the schedule for the 2017-2018 season. Last week, it was announced that the Milwaukee Bucks would be opening at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, October 20th.
Notable in the posted schedule is that, as of right now, the Milwaukee Bucks have sixteen games that are planned to be broadcast nationally. Sixteen! Isn’t it nice to root for the team with one of the league’s premier young superstars?
