Its an exciting and important time to see fresh new faces and moves many teams are making. Some old faces in new places are quite intriguing. Players coming back from injury will be a treat for many fans. The final score isn’t the key factor right now, here are a couple must see match ups:
Wednesday, Oct. 16, Detroit Pistons at Chicago Bulls at United Center in Chicago, Ill.
Derrick Rose’ first time he has played a game in the building since he tore his ACL there in 2012.
Wednesday, Oct. 23, Brooklyn Nets at Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston, Mass.
Kevin Garnett and Paul Peirce are due to make their first return to Boston as VISITORS. It will be as loud and emotional a scene as one can expect in a preseason game.
I doubt the new Nets will play a ton of minutes, but seeing them on the Garden floor in visiting black jerseys will be mind blowing.
