This game was announced before the schedule announcement on Monday, and it’s the Bucks’ ESPN home opener against the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Cleveland Cavaliers. This will be a good game for lots of obvious reasons.

Home openers are always lit, no matter what. Tickets will be in high demand, for more than just that reason. The Bucks are taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers, who even potentially without Kyrie Irving will have a pair of stars worth watching.

Kevin Love is a really good player, and obviously LeBron James is worth watching whenever possible. Since this game is so early in the season, it’s likely King James will be suited up and playing pretty damn hard still, and going head-to-head with Giannis Antetokounmpo in Milwaukee.

Additionally, it’s a Friday night. The game starts somewhat early anyway at 6 p.m. Central, but there’s no worry about staying out too late here, since many people will get the option to sleep in on Saturday morning.

This is an obvious pick, but it had to be included here. If you’re not catching the home opener, you’re doing Bucks watching wrong.
