ESPN Star Sports to telecast NBA live from 31 October

ESPN Star Sports will beam the NBA season live from 31 October. ESPN Star Sports will start the coverage with a double header on Wednesday, beginning with Michael Jordan's Washington Wizards taking on the New York Knicks, followed by a big clash between LA Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers.

There will be a total of 77 regular season games on ESPN (49) and Star Sports (28). During the regular season, all games will be on ESPN every Wednesday and Friday, and every Saturday on Star Sports.

A total of 26 teams will appear on the networks, including the defending champion LA Lakers (16 games) and title contenders such as Eastern Conference champions Philadelphia 76ers (12 games), Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors (both 11). Fans can also check out Michael Jordan on six Wizards games to be carried by ESS.

Michael Jordan, the former Chicago Bulls superstar who re-wrote the record books in his first two stints in the NBA is back again. The league will have a different look in other ways as the NBA has introduced some changes in the rules from this year.

Teams will be allowed to play zone defence as opposed to the exclusive man-to-man defence of the past. The time allowed to advance the ball to the front court has been reduced from 10 to eight seconds. Defenders will be prohibited from staying in the lane for more than three seconds. And touch fouls have been eliminated.
