2012-13 NBA Schedule: A Complete List Of Home Openers

We already knew that the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks would be each other's first home opponent on the 2012-13 NBA schedule. But with the full schedule released Thursday night, we now have the full list of every NBA teams' home openers — and the borough battles are only some of the highlights.

The biggest game of the opening day of the season -- which, just so we're all clear, is Oct. 30, 2012 -- features the Miami Heat welcoming the Boston Celtics back to South Florida for a rematch of the 2012 Eastern Conference finals. The Los Angeles Lakers also open at home on that Tuesday, welcoming the Dallas Mavericks to town for Steve Nash's first game in purple and gold.

The last team to get its home opener? The Denver Nuggets, who will have to wait until the second Tuesday of the 2012-13 NBA season to host a game.
