Following months of anticipation, the 2017-18 regular season calendar is set for Oklahoma City Thunder basketball.

Oklahoma City begins its 82-game slate with an Oct 19 home debut vs. the New York Knicks. Last season, OKC swept their Eastern Conference rival 2-0.

This contest is followed by back-to-back division battles opposite defending Northwest Champion Utah and revitalized Minnesota.

Then, the first marquee matchup of OKC’s season comes when Indiana visits “The Peake” Oct 25. This will be the first of two meetings which pit Paul George against his former team.

George’s Indy return will be televised Dec 13 on ESPN.

Erik Horne of NewsOK announced via Twitter that OKC and Golden State’s rivalry reignites Nov 22nd from Chesapeake Energy Arena. The national spotlight is primed for each of the teams’ four regular-season contests:

In addition to these highlighted dates, Oklahoma City will make 37 nationally-televised appearances on ESPN, ABC, TNT, and NBATV.

Finally, the opener of three 17-18 showdowns between reigning-MVP Russell Westbrook and former teammate James Harden will occur from Chesapeake Arena Dec 25 on ABC. Overall, this season the Thunder host their 2017 playoff antagonist twice.
