The NBA has moved up its nationally televised telecast start times for much of the 19-20 season.

Twelve of TNT's 31 doubleheaders and 22 of ESPN's 36 doubleheaders will start at 7:30 PM ET / 10:00 PM ET or 7:00 PM / 9:30 PM ET instead of 8:00 PM / 10:30 PM ET. The NBA has reduced its quantity of 8:00 PM / 10:30 PM ET doubleheaders by 42 percent over last season.

The NBA has been concerned the start times impacted ratings, particularly with LeBron James now in the Western Conference.
