The Wizards will play the New York Knicks two times during the 2017-18 preseason, once at home at the Capital One Arena and again on the road at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks confirmed the news on Tuesday in a tweet of their full schedule, though the matchups with New York were previously reported by CSN. Now that we have the dates for their games against the Knicks, here's how the Wizards' preseason schedule looks:
Oct. 6 vs. New York Knicks, 7 p.m.
Oct. 8 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers, 7 p.m.
Oct. 11 at Miami Heat, 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 13 at New York Knicks, 7:30 p.m.
The Wizards then start their regular season at home against the Philadelphia 76ers on Oct. 18. That will be the first NBA game for No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz.
It's always hard to predict who will actually play in the preseason, but the Wizards' preseason set is pretty decent. The Cavs are the defending conference champions and have several stars in LeBron James, Kyrie Irving (for now) and Kevin Love. The Knicks have Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony, making them worth watching despite their record. And the Heat just barely missed the playoffs last season and could be the Wizards' biggest threat to defending as division champs.
