Brian Martin, for NBA.com

The Ball brothers meet for the first time this season on Monday.

Monday, November 29
Charlotte at Chicago, 8:00 p.m. ET
We broke down this matchup between the Ball brothers in our NBA League Pass Black Friday watch guide. This is their first meeting since Lonzo joined the Bulls this past offseason and just their third head-to-head meeting since LaMelo entered the league last season. The brothers split the first two meetings. Who will lead the sibling rivalry after Monday?

Tuesday, November 30
Los Angeles at Sacramento, 10:00 p.m. ET
Black Friday gave us a triple-overtime classic between the California rivals that featured 19 ties and 23 lead changes before Sacramento took control in the third extra session to secure the come-from-behind win. It was the second-highest scoring game of the NBA season so far with 278 combined points (SAC 141, LAL 137). Thankfully we don’t have to wait long for the rematch as it takes place just four days later.

Wednesday, December 1
Charlotte at Milwaukee, 8:00 p.m. ET
The Bucks enter this game (their first action of Week 7) riding a seven-game win streak that has lifted them to fourth in the East and just 1.5 games back of Brooklyn at the top of the conference. This is the first meeting of the season with Charlotte — one of only six teams to win the season series with the Bucks (2-1) last season on the Bucks’ road to the championship.

Thursday, December 2
Detroit at Phoenix, 9:00 p.m. ET
The Suns (17-3) open Week 7 with an epic showdown against the Warriors (18-2) on Tuesday as Phoenix looks for its 17th straight win, which would tie their franchise record. This game against Detroit on Thursday will either be the Suns going for win No. 18 in a row (a new team record and the longest win streak since Milwaukee won 18 straight in 2019) or attempting to start a brand new streak.

The Suns and Warriors meet for the second time in three days on Friday.

Friday, December 3
Phoenix at Golden State, 10:00 p.m. ET
The top two teams in the league meet for second time in just three days. The first meeting comes Tuesday on TNT while the rematch on Friday is available only on League Pass. Both teams enter Week 7 on impressive win streaks: 16 in a row for Phoenix and seven in a row for Golden State.

Saturday, December 4
Denver at New York, 1:00 p.m. ET
With no national TV games this weekend, so get a full day of NBA League Pass started with a matinee at Madison Square Garden with the Knicks hosting the Denver Nuggets. Denver has won seven straight games against the Knicks, with New York’s last win coming at home on Oct. 30, 2017.
Chicago at Brooklyn, 7:30 p.m. ET
This is a matchup of the No. 1 (Brooklyn) and No. 5 (Chicago) teams in the Eastern Conference entering Week 7. While many predicted that the Nets would be here, not as many predicted Chicago’s 13-8 start to the season. The Bulls won the first meeting with the Nets this season (118-95 on Nov. 8), matching Brooklyn’s biggest loss of the season (23 points) despite 38 points from Kevin Durant.

Sunday, December 5
Charlotte at Atlanta, 6:00 p.m. ET
The all League Pass weekend continues with a matchup between two of the most exciting young guards in the game – LaMelo Ball and Trae Young – as the Hawks host the Hornets. Both teams enter Week 7 playing well – Charlotte is 8-2 in its last 10 games, while Atlanta is 7-3.
New Orleans at Houston, 7:00 p.m. ET
All eyes will be on Zion Williamson this week as he has been cleared for full team activities with the Pelicans. While there is still no timeline set for his return, we’ll keep this game circled with optimistic thoughts.
