CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers will open next season at home against the Brooklyn Nets and make nine national TV appearances.
With coach Mike Brown returning this season and No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett on Cleveland's roster, the Cavs will have a higher profile than in recent years. They're being rewarded with more exposure and three games on ESPN, one on TNT and five on NBA TV.
LeBron James and the defending champion Miami Heat visit Quicken Loans Arena on Nov. 27 and return on March 18.
Brown will face the Los Angeles Lakers, who fired him after just five games last season, on Jan. 14 at Staples Center and Feb. 5 in Cleveland.
