Since the fascinating NBA Playoffs that lead to the NBA Finals are far away, and the NBA All-Star Game is also scheduled on February 20th next season, what should one do? At the beginning of the 2021-22 season, it is best to look forward to some other exciting games in the preseason and regular season.
The regular season will start on October 19th, and until then, most of the teams are preparing throughout preseason games. Fortunately for the basketball fans, many NBA games are exciting enough to buy tickets for and buy a passage to the beautiful sports arenas to watch live some of the best athletes in the entire world.
But how to pick which games are the best? Is it best to choose the best teams or to choose the best team rivals? Even from the preseason games, you can find some exciting games. Also, an even better way to select the best games is to look for some of the most important dates in the regular season, like Thanksgiving games or Christmas games. The NBA always tends to set the most exciting games for these key dates.
So let’s see the best preseason game and some of the best regular-season games that are set to be played during some exciting holidays.
The most interesting NBA Preseason game this year is definitely between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Dallas Mavericks. It is set to be played on October 15th this year, and this will be a great clash between the Bucks, who were last year’s champions, and the Mavs, who are the rising team in the NBA. A game where the qualities of the champions will be tested by the Mavs, which are the team that will probably rule the world in the following years.
Another huge reason why you should buy NBA tickets and watch this game is that it will be a duel between the MVP of the 2021 NBA Finals, the amazing Giannis Antetokounmpo, and the rising superstar Luka Doncic. It doesn’t get any more exciting than watching these two superstars playing against each other. Also, do not forget that preseason games are good to see some of the young talents that are now coming into the NBA.
This year in the United States, Thanksgiving will be on November 25th, on Thursday, of course. There are no games that particular day, but there is one exciting game the day before and another exciting game the day after.
On November 24th, the legendary Greg Popovich and his San Antonio Spurs will welcome the Atlanta Hawks in their arena. The reason why this game is important is that it is a duel between the Spurs that are a team-style format and a team that has been at the top of the NBA for many years. And the reason why it is exciting to see them against the Hawks is that Atlanta also has had some interesting team-playing vibe since last season, and a vast part is the players they added in 2020, like Bogdan Bogdanovic and Clint Capela. The Spurs are constantly fighting to be on top, and the Hawks are now a reliable rival since they managed to reach the Conference Finals last season.
The day after Thanksgiving, on November 26th, there is yet another fantastic game, the Denver Nuggets, which are the team that is highly possible to be the NBA champion this season, welcome the last year’s champions, Milwaukee Bucks. It is wise to purchase NBA tickets for this game since there is a considerable percentage that this will be the 2022 NBA Finals. You will watch the 2021 regular season NBA MVP Nikola Jokic, going against the 2021 NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Another part of the regular season where it is best to buy NBA tickets is during Christmas. The NBA always has the best team duels set for Christmas on December 25th. There are two exciting games to watch on this date, the Los Angeles Lakers against the Brooklyn Nets and the Phoenix Suns against the Golden State Warriors.
If there is a team that gained the most from the 2021 NBA Free Agency, it is the LA Lakers since they brought the superstar Russell Westbrook. Everyone waits for the moment when he will have a Lakers jersey on and how he will play together with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. This game will be the clash between two superstar titans, the Lakers with these outstanding players, and the Brooklyn Nets with superstars like Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and others. It will most certainly be a spectacle and one of the fastest sold-out games from the regular season. Some people disagree with the idea of having more superstars in one team, and others like this new popular idea. Nevertheless, one can not argue that it is amazing to see so many basketball superstars in one game.
Another Christmas game one should not miss is between last year’s NBA Finalists and runner-ups, the Phoenix Suns and their veteran leader Chris Paul against the 2018 NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors had some injuries and didn’t perform at the highest level the last couple of years, but now they might be back in full force. Golden State acquired Nemanja Bjelica and Avery Bradley, and together with their previous superstars like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, they will be one of the best teams this year. On the other hand, the Suns will probably have another great year, and even though they don’t have many superstar players, they proved that their team effort brought incredible results last year. Also, one of their best players, Devin Booker, is expected to shine even more this season.
This way of choosing games gives you the easiest way to find the most exciting games throughout the entire year. Of course, since every team plays more than 82 games in a year, it is expected that some games are not extremely interesting to watch. But, if you select them well, you will have the chance to watch some of the best ones.
Therefore, don’t waste any more time and select which are your favourite future games, and purchase some NBA tickets as quickly as possible because tickets sell out pretty fast, especially for NBA games.
