A wild offseason is behind us. The rosters are set. It’s time to hit the floor for the start of the 2022-23 NBA regular season.

The league will kick off a new campaign on Tuesday with what should be an entertaining doubleheader. The 76ers will travel to Boston to face the Celtics at the TD Garden, and the Lakers will battle the defending champion Warriors at the Chase Center.

Wednesday’s slate will feature 12 games, including a couple of national TV contests. The Knicks and Grizzlies will play in the early ESPN game, and the Mavericks and Suns will meet later in a Western Conference Semifinals rematch.

Here’s everything you need to know about watching the start of the 2022-23 regular season.
