Looking at the schedule, I think the team can go 82-0.




I assume the games with a (T) in parenthesis mean TNT, while the (A) means ABC.  That means only 12 nationally televised games, which seems very low.  But then I notice it doesn't look like anything on ESPN, so that will probably bump it up a little more.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Nothing I would call killer stretches.   Late December might be as close as they come to one;  MIL, CHA, PHI, @HOU, @MEM, @SA in a 10 day span but none are part of back to backs.

Ugh 27 is a lot. I pay for the league pass so I prefer hey not be on national television because I donít get Mike and Tommy/Scal.

Plus my local games blackout LP which is another 8 games (assuming no games vs Knicks or Nets are nationally televised) and whatever random games NBATV pick up along the way, Iíll be lucky to get them for half the games.

EDIT:

Just looked on NBA website, itís a whopping 39 national games including NBATV.

Not much to complain about with this schedule.  We get all four California teams on the same West Coast trip, first in Northern CA then heading to LA, with an off day between the Lakers and the Clippers.

Also, it looks like the schedule is ending a day earlier for everyone, creating an extra day off between the regular season and the playoffs.

Dang, Lakers @ Celtics on a Thursday night in February.
Celtics @ Lakers on a Saturday night in March.

What a strange schedule considering no Celtics/Warriors or Celtics/Lakers hype.

That Lakers @ Celtics game falls on the trade deadline.  Will be interesting to see what Lakers are even on the roster then.

I like how the season starts for us. A home opener against Philly and then playing in Toronto three nights later on the FIRST night of a back to back could allow us to set the tone for the East from the get-go. Be nice to have wins against our two main rivals in the East within the first four days of the season!

It certainly canít be worse (knock on wood) than how the first two games started last year...

Itís amazing how the league sets up its top teams lol This might be the best schedule the Cís have had in a long time. West coast road trips are all broken up into smaller ones now. No stretch that stands out as brutal.

Prediction, feeling overwhelmingly homesick, the Lakers send Lebron back to Cleveland at the deadline.

Celtics went 0-2 losing Hayward in the process before winning 16 straight games. Those were the weirdest days.

I wonder if Celtics will retire KGís number this season or what until next season to let Minnesota do it first (I assume they will this season).

ooh, they think we are a top team. from first glance, we have only 3 early games IIRC, one at 12:30, 3-ish, and 2:30pm. I only went down the list once but I don't remember any more than those... 6pm EST or later is what I love!

That stretch coming out of the All-Star game might be tough (especially when the C's send 5 players to the game  ;)).

6 of 7 against likely playoff teams, and both HOU and GS in a 3 day span.
7 of 9 adding in the Lakers game, so a 4 game stretch over a week against HOU, GS, and LAL.  That game against SAC on 3/6 looks like a trap game if I ever saw one.
