Orlando Summer League got going early on Saturday, with a 9 a.m. ET tip-off in the practice gym at the Amway Center.
The Orlando version, which runs from July 5-11 before Las Vegas takes over from July 11-21, is a much more private affair, limited to in-person viewing by media and team personnel.
Every game is available for live streaming, however, and for a small fee you get access to all of them for viewing on your computer, smart phone, or tablet.
Here’s the opening day schedule (all times Eastern):
|9 a.m||Brooklyn at Indiana|
|11 a.m.||Miami at Boston|
|1 p.m.||Orlando at Philadelphia|
|3 p.m.||Detroit at Houston|
|5 p.m.||Memphis at Oklahoma City|
Miami against Boston should feature newly-drafted rookies Shabazz Napier and Marcus Smart going at it, while Nerlens Noel will see his first live game action for the Sixers.
If you’re growing weary of all the free agency rumors and want to get back to watching some actual basketball, Summer League is a great opportunity to do just that.
