Mavs open at home as NBA releases schedule

NEW YORK, July 19, 2011 (AFP) - The National Basketball Association released its 2011-12 schedule with the champion Dallas Mavericks opening at home against the Chicago Bulls.

The NBA released the schedule despite being in the midst of a labour dispute which has led to a lockout.

However there is still plenty of time to get a deal done as the season doesn’t begin until November 2 for most teams.

The Mavericks will open against most valuable player Derrick Rose and the Bulls. The Mavericks host Miami in a finals rematch Christmas Day.

Miami’s Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh start their second season together in Miami against the New York Knicks on November 2.

Owners and players have been in a lockout since June 30. There are some who fear that season could be lost to a labour dispute for the just second time in league history.
