With the season tipoff of the 2012-13 NBA season just around the corner, it’s time for casual and hardcore fans alike to get caught up on their favorite teams.

Fortunately, the preseason is here and it’s the perfect opportunity to familiarize yourself with all the new faces around the league and where some of the familiar ones have wound up after such a hectic offseason that followed the lockout.

Let’s take a look at the complete schedule for the upcoming season, find out where you can watch and highlight a few of the better games on the slate.

 

Must-Watch Games

Sunday, Oct. 7, at 2:30 p.m.: Orlando Magic at New Orleans Hornets; Mexico City Arena, Mexico City (NBATV)

This early preseason contest will showcase Anthony Davis, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft.

He’s expected to become an almost instantaneous superstar, especially after earning valuable experience at the Olympics with Team USA this summer.

Let’s see if he can get it done against the new-look Orlando Magic, who will be without Dwight Howard for the first time since 2004.

 

Thursday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 a.m.: Miami Heat at Los Angeles Clippers; MasterCard Center, Beijing (NBATV)

Here is a great chance to catch a glimpse of the world champion Miami Heat against another elite team in the NBA.

While LeBron JamesDwyane WadeChris Bosh, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul may not play many minutes combined, the sheer fact that they will be there and likely on the court—at some point—makes this must-see basketball.

 

Thursday, Oct. 18, at 8 p.m.: Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets; Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y. (TNT)

This game will showcase the new-look Nets against their tough Atlantic Division rival Celtics.

It’s more than likely that one of these teams is going to come out on top of the division this season, and this will be a sneak preview of what should be an epic four-game series between the two in 2012-13.
