LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The NBA unveiled the 2019-20 schedule Monday, including the national ABC slate of games.

For the third consecutive year, ABC will begin the season with an NBA Christmas Day triple-header on Dec. 25.

ABC will air 19 NBA games during the regular season, including nine “NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC” games at 5 and 8 p.m. PT. These 19 games are specific only to the 2019-20 NBA regular season and constitutes one additional game compared to the 2018-19 NBA regular season.

The NBA Christmas Day triple-header on ABC will include the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers, the Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Los Angeles Lakers.

Time periods for all NBA on ABC regular season telecasts include a 30-minute “NBA Countdown” telecast preceding game coverage (with the exception of game 2 of the NBA Christmas Day triple-header).

All 2019-20 NBA on ABC regular season telecasts will be available on the ESPN App and the ABC App where available (each via authenticated live streaming).
