Knicks 2012-13 schedule announced
The 2012-13 NBA schedule was released Thursday night, and the Knicks will open Nov. 1 against the Brooklyn Nets in the first regular-season game at the Barclays Center. The TNT game is the first of 25 nationally televised games the Knicks are scheduled to play on TNT, ABC or ESPN.
The Knicks' home opener is the next night against the NBA champion Miami Heat. It's the first of four games they will play against LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, including March 3 at the Garden. Kevin Durant and Western Conference champion Oklahoma City visit March 7.
Lin's return is just one of December's big games. Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash lead the Lakers into the Garden for their only visit Dec. 13 and Deron Williams and the Nets make the short ride over Dec. 19. It's part of the Knicks' season-high six-game homestand.
