  NBA schedule 2018-19: Marquee matchups and weekly series Once again, the NBA emphasized having teams play fewer back-to-back games.According to the the NBA, teams will average 13.3 back-to-back games this season, down almost one-third from the 19.3 back-to-backs teams averaged in 2014-15. Also, for the second straight year, no team will play four games in five days.

Under - the - radar reunions. Sure , there are some obvious reunion games to circle on this year's NBA calendar, but here are a few more that deserve some love on the 10. It's always entertaining when the top two picks in a draft face-off for the first time. This game should be no different.

We get it: LeBron James is great. The Warriors lineup is historically scary. The Rockets still (maybe?) have a shot. The Celtics and Raptors will likely battle for the Eastern Conference.

But what about the rest of the NBA and its never-ending supply of intrigue?

After looking at the 2018-19 NBA schedule release Friday, here are six games worthy of your attention that may not get the same preseason hype:

Hawks at Warriors — Nov. 13, 10:30 p.m. ET

On this night in Atlanta, rookie point guard Trae Young will get the chance to show the NBA world if he has it in him to be the next Stephen Curry. These two teams are on opposite ends of the NBA power spectrum, but let’s hope Young and Curry go toe-to-toe and challenge the other’s range for 48 minutes.

Mavericks at Clippers — Dec. 20, 10:30 p.m. ET

The Mavericks tried twice to pry DeAndre Jordan away from the Clippers and succeeded this offseason, adding the big man on a one-year deal. There’s no question Jordan will try to put a former teammate or two on a poster.

Jazz at 76ers — Nov. 16, 7 p.m. ET

The 2017-18 Rookie of the Year spat between Utah’s Donovan Mitchell and Philly’s Ben Simmons is behind us, but they’re still wildly entertaining players that will remain linked throughout their careers on young, talented teams. Mitchell, who lost out the rookie honor to Simmons, will likely take the slight edge into next season and try to one-up the 76ers star in Philly.

Kings at Suns — Dec. 4, 9 p.m. ET

This game features zero playoff teams, but it does have both the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 2018 draft with Phoenix’s Deandre Ayton and Sacramento’s Marvin Bagley III. Ayton was an undisputed top pick, but Bagley’s selection wasn’t met with rave reviews by Kings fans. If the Duke product can outplay Ayton in their first meeting he might silence a few doubters for the time being.

Lakers at Pacers — Feb. 5, 7 p.m. ET

LeBron James and Victor Oladipo had an epic battle during the playoffs, but this showdown is must-watch television because Lance Stephenson is back in Indianapolis. Stephenson blessed the Pacers with his antics for six-plus seasons and now gets to take the court against them after Indy declined his option for this season. If the Lakers put it to the Pacers, expect Stephenson to play it up to his former home crowd.

Hornets at Spurs — Jan. 14, 8:30 p.m. ET

The Hornets are a fringe playoff team and the Spurs rarely ooze excitement, but this game should be a nice watch, especially for San Antonio fans. Tony Parker will play against the Spurs for the first time in his career on a team led by Gregg Popovich disciple James Borrego. Maybe Popovich will show some extra emotion during his in-game interviews as he competes against two men he’s shared a bench with.
