NBA: Preseason-Washington Wizards at Cleveland Cavaliers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The ring ceremony tonight in Cleveland is scheduled for 4:30 PM PST, before the two preeminent Eastern Conference superteams [sitcom pause for audience laughter to subside] clash in “The Land”. A motley crew of has-been superstars surround Kristaps Porzingis as his New York Knicks take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Two intriguing young Western Conference teams meet in Portland at 7 PM PST. The Utah Jazz visit the Moda Center and the Portland Trail Blazers in a game that features two likely playoff teams.
