By the end of Wednesday, August 17, the Cleveland Cavaliers will know every single game that is laid before them in the upcoming 2022-23 NBA schedule.
That is because the league is going to officially release the schedule mid-day on Wednesday after weeks of speculation, rumor, and leaks.
Not only are fans very eager and excited to see the lineup of games, but the team is also beyond ecstatic too.

The Cavs hopped on Twitter to announce their anticipation for the new season schedule.
There is a lot on the line for the team in the months ahead because, in many ways, it could be a huge season for them…or a huge disappointment.
Seeking The Schedule
The release of the NBA schedule is always a big deal but it feels even more important for the Cavs this year.
Last season had a lot of great moments – and letdowns – for the team.
They had a superb regular season, much better than people expected.
However, the team ultimately missed the playoffs because of injuries and stiff competition – which was seen as a huge bummer for the squad.
Obviously, the Cavaliers want to capitalize on the success they found last year and only build on it.
In other words, they need to make the postseason this time but a tough schedule could get in their way.
If they face many difficult teams back-to-back, their chances of surging into the playoffs will be slimmer.
The Cavaliers will have to fight through an increasingly hard Eastern Conference if they wish to have an impact in the playoffs.
The schedule isn’t the only determining factor for the Cavs’ success but it is certainly something that will set the tone for the season ahead.
