After 622 days without a game in the Comerica Center, the Texas Legends will host their 2021-22 home opener this weekend with a double-header against the Birmingham Squadron, the new G League affiliate of the New Orleans Pelicans.  The weekend will see back-to-back charity jersey nights and a number of new activations as the team welcomes the Legends Family back to the court!
