The 2015-16 NBA season opens Tuesday night with three games on tap:
The Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers tip things off against the Chicago Bulls at 8 p.m. ET at the United Center. President Barack Obama is expected to be in attendance.
Elsewhere, the Atlanta Hawks host the Detroit Pistons at 8 a.m. And the Golden State Warriors begin defense of their NBA title with a game at home against the New Orleans Pelicans at 8 p.m.
