The NBA officially unveiled the anticipated schedule for the 2021-22 season, and there are a vast number of key dates for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Among the games to watch for include the Lakers taking on the Golden State Warriors on opening day; the Lakers hosting the Phoenix Suns in another primetime game on opening week; and L.A. hosting the Brooklyn Nets for a Christmas showdown between heavyweights from each conference.

Since the NBA is in its 75th season, the league scheduled certain games between specific teams at specific times to honor what happened on those days in the past.

The Lakers will feature in an NBA 75 classic matchup against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, Jan. 7 at 10:00 p.m. EST on ESPN.

On that day in 1972, Los Angeles drubbed the Hawks, 134-90. It marked L.A.’s 33rd win in a row, which is the longest winning streak to this day in the league’s history.

Now, it’ll be LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook taking on a fiery young core in Atlanta comprising Trae Young, John Collins, Kevin Huerter, De’Andre Hunter and plenty of other notable talents.
