The Hornets season got that much closer when the 2018-19 NBA Schedule was released on Friday.
Charlotte opens up its campaign on Wednesday, October 17 at 7 p.m. at Spectrum Center against the Milwaukee Bucks.
It's the first time the Hornets will start a season at home in the past four years.
In terms of national television appearances, Charlotte makes the list just one time: the season finale on April 10 against Orlando (ESPN).
