Dallas vs. San Antonio.

The rivalry continues on the big stage when the 2014-15 NBA season begins Tuesday, Oct. 28.

The reigning NBA champion Spurs will open the league’s 69th season by hosting the new-look Mavericks, the only team to take the Spurs to seven games during San Antonio’s title run last season.

The Spurs will also receive their rings in the nationally televised ceremony as part of TNT’s pregame coverage. The second half of the season-opening doubleheader has the Los Angeles Lakers hosting the Houston Rockets.

The Mavericks have several new players surrounding megastar Dirk Nowitzki next season, including the return of center Tyson Chandler and the acquisition of forward Chandler Parsons.

The lengthened NBA All-Star break will be Feb. 13-19, with the game on Feb. 15 in New York City in the schedule released Wednesday.

Some notable home games for the Mavericks include Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on Nov. 21, the reigning champion Spurs making the first of two visits on Dec. 20 and LeBron James and Cleveland making a solo visit on March 10.

LeBron in Miami for Christmas

LeBron James will play his first game since rejoining the Cleveland Cavaliers at home Oct. 30 against New York, then return to Miami for the first time on Christmas.

That includes the game at Miami in the third spot on the five-game Christmas schedule, traditionally a highlight of the NBA season. James led the Heat to two championships and four NBA Finals appearances in four years before deciding to return to his native Ohio.

The other Christmas day games are: Washington at New York; Oklahoma City at San Antonio in a rematch of the Western Conference Finals; the Los Angeles Lakers at Chicago; and Golden State at the Los Angeles Clippers.

The last game before the All-Star break in New York is Feb. 12, when the Cavaliers visit the Bulls. The regular season doesn’t resume until the following Thursday, two days later than usual, with a doubleheader on TNT.

The regular season ends April 15.
