They’re baaaack!

After an almost five-month break, the NBA season will officially restart tonight.

The first game is the Pelicans vs. the Jazz (at 6:30pm EST) followed by the Lakers and Clippers.

Each of the 22 teams in Orlando will begin by playing eight “seeding” games to close out the regular season

If all goes well, the NBA Finals will take us through the beginning of October.

Some of the big storylines to watch: LeBron James is chasing his 4th championship title, the Milwaukee Bucks are the favorite to come out of the East, and Kawhi Leonard delivered the Toronto Raptors their first championship in franchise history last season and wants to do the same for the Clippers this season.

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat restart things on Saturday when they play the Denver Nuggets at 1 pm.

Will you be watching one or both of the games tonight?
