You'll have a chance to see your favorite NBA team this month, even though the season is over, when 22 teams play a combined 61 games during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

The Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion, both on the UNLV campus, will host the Summer League games and tournament July 12-22.

Both Los Angeles NBA teams will play on opening day. The Clippers take on Atlanta at 3 p.m. and the Lakers will face Cleveland at 5 p.m. Both games will be played at the Cox Pavilion.

Each of the 22 teams is guaranteed to play at least five games during 11 days of competition. Many of the top picks in last week’s draft are expected to participate.

On July 22, for the first time since the NBA Summer League was formed in 2004, a champion will be crowned. Based on their play through July 16, the teams will be seeded for a single-elimination tournament.

A schedule of games is available online.

Tickets cost $20 for the championship game and $25 for all others. Courtside seats are available for $150. They are available online or by calling (702) 739-3267.
