The NBA has released the schedule for the 2017-18 season, which means Toronto Raptors fans can mark their calendars with these five must-not-watch games.

It’s August, the dead of the NBA offseason for the Toronto Raptors and the rest of the league. At this point we’re effectively waiting for scraps and morsels to fall off Adam Silver’s table to hold us over until the season begins.

On Tuesday, another one of those crumbs fell off the table squarely into our mouths. The NBA released the schedule for the 2017-18 season and there are some doozies, but there are also duds.

There are a ton of games that as a Toronto Raptors fan you should tune into: any Raptors-Rockets, Raptors-Cavs, Raptors-Boston game is a spectacular affair.

Because of the marquee match up or a touching reunion among current and recently departed Raptors, most games have a specific meaning all throughout the season. Most.

Some of them, are skippable even for the most diehard fan. Competitive games and star players are the crux of the NBA and when you strip those away there isn’t a reason to watch really.

So, if you have a rammed schedule and need an extra night to help clear it, you can afford to miss these upcoming games.
