Utah Jazz 2022-23 NBA basketball season schedule is discontinued

The season begins October 19 at home against the Nuggets and concludes April 9 at the Lakers.

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Jazz fans cheer as the Jazz take the lead in the third quarter, in the first full capacity crowd since the pandemic, in NBA action between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers, in the first game of the second round of a series NBA Playoffs at Vivint Arena, on Tuesday, June 8, 2021.

It’s bound to be a very different season for the Utah Jazz.

New coach, completely different looking roster and potentially a big change in terms of goals and aspirations. However, there are still 82 games to be played – four against every opponent in the Northwest Division, at least three against every other Western Conference team, and two against every team in the East.

The team schedule was released on Wednesday afternoon. These are some of the headlines.

opener

Who faces Jazz first? The regular season and official start of the Will Hardy era heads out against two-time World Player of the Year Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, October 19 at Vivin Arena.

Rudy’s face

There’s no turning around – it would be weird to see Rudy Gobert wearing a Minnesota Timberwolves jersey. It would be strange to see him play against the Jazz. It will happen for the first time on October 21, in Minneapolis (the Jazz’s second game of the season and first on the road). Joubert will return to Vivint Arena for the first time as an opponent on December 9th.

Face Royce

Sometimes in the midst of what was a tumultuous off-season, it’s almost overlooked that the team is now missing two garnishes from the past several seasons. Royce O’Neale was traded to Brooklyn immediately prior to the draw. His game with the Nets against the Jazz will be on January 20 in Salt Lake City and April 2 in Brooklyn.

He doesn’t like national television very much

Jazz TV games will remain on AT&T SportsNet this season, much to the chagrin of fans who were hoping for different streaming options.

If you want to get an idea of ​​the Jazz’s national outlook this season, consider this: A season prior, the Jazz featured 26 nationally televised games. The team is scheduled to play just four matches on national networks this season. Three of them will be on NBATV (November 19 at Portland, November 21st at the Clippers, and December 22nd against the Wizards). the other? That would be their home game against the New York Knicks…on TNT. Hmmmmm…

The Knicks showdown… is special here for no particular reason

Why nix? It’s not like they might play a significant role in the future of jazz, is it? However, in the event that they become noteworthy down the road based on their prospect of being named a three-time All-Star guard (very oddly specific, right?), their matches will be against the Jazz on November 15th at Vivint Arena (a TNT game) and February 11th at Madison Square Garden.

Conclusion

It’s hard to say at this particular moment what the Jazz will look like once the games begin, so it’s not certain — even if Donovan Mitchell stays — that the six-year playoff run will continue. So, with that being said, it’s entirely possible that the end of the regular season will be the team’s last game of the season. That game will be on April 9th ​​in Los Angeles against the Lakers.

Various schedule details

• Another familiar face is set to return on March 24, when Joe Engels and the Milwaukee Bucks come to visit.

• Holiday games include Halloween (Oct. 31 for starters) at home vs. Memphis, New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31) at home vs. the Miami Heat, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 16), when Joubert and the Coyotes face off again in Minnesota.

• Single match tickets will be available to the public starting Monday 22nd August.

• The longest family trip and road trip of the season is every six games. The six-game home game takes place from November 28 to December 9 (Bulls, Clippers, Pacers, Blazers, Warriors, and Wolves). The six-game trip will be from March 3-13 (Oklahoma City in two, then Dallas, Orlando, Charlotte and Miami).

• There will be three parts of the season that will be very heavy on the roads. There will be two separate periods in the first half of the season where they play six of seven games on the road (November 2-13, with a home game on November 7; then December 17-30 – two and three-road trips with a December 22 home game in the middle). Post-All-Star break, they’ll have 10 of 13 games away from Vivint Arena (a four-game trip to Toronto, New York, Indiana, and Memphis, then a three-game home, followed by a six-game trip).

• The Jazz will play 15 straight sets – 10 before the All-Stars and five after. Six of them will feature both matches on the road, and only two will feature both matches at home. Three of them start with a road game, followed by one at home, and four start in Fife and conclude elsewhere.

• There are five occasions where the Jazz will face the same opponent in consecutive games: October 24/26 against the Rockets, October 29/31 against the Grizzlies, December 13/15 against the Pelicans, February 25/28 against the Spurs, and March 3/5 against the Thunder.

• The All-Star break will run from February 16th to 22nd, and the match will take place on February 19th at Vivint Arena.

• The Lakers are usually the big ticket in the Viv. LA comes to the SLC for the first time on November 7th.

• For those who want to see the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors come to town on December 7th.
