The 2017-18 NBA schedule is here, and the Wizards now know the who, what, where and when for the NBA regular season.
With well over two months until the first regular-season game, there is ample time to pour over the entire schedule, analyzing every matchup and previewing every game.
The Wizards will play 18 games on national TV and will travel 41,451 miles in total. That's fine and dandy, but we want to know what the best games on the schedule are.
CSN Wizards reporter Chris Miller did just that on Monday afternoon.
Here's his Top 5 list of the best games on the Wizards' 2017-18 regular-season schedule.
5. Nov. 19 at Toronto Raptors
"It's their first first game of 15 back-to-backs and it is a good test against DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, a team that figures to be pretty good in 2017-18."
4. Nov. 20 at Milwaukee Bucks
"The very next night the Wizards go from north of the border to Milwaukee. Giannis Antetokounmpo is already talked about as an MVP candidate. I like the way Milwaukee plays. If they can get a bit more shooting, they can definitely be one of the top four teams in the East."
3. Feb. 23 vs. Golden State Warriors
"The best shooting team in the league, and maybe the best shooting team of all time. It will be a very good test to see where the Wizards stack up in the important month of February."
2. Nov. 3 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
"It's the first of four meetings against the Cavaliers and both teams figure to be at the top of the Eastern Conference. Now, the Wizards had some success in Cleveland and lost a heartbreaker last year at the Verizon Center when LeBron James hit that ridiculous shot at the buzzer. "
1. Dec. 25 at Boston Celtics
"It is the showdown. it is the rematch of the seven game series between, let's just say two teams that just don't like each other. It's the first of four meetings and the new twist to this rivalry is that the Morris twins will go against one another, Markieff with the Wizards and now Marcus with the Celtics."
