2013-2014 Official NBA Thread

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/blog/ey...4-nba-schedule

With the Schedule released today, I figured it would be a good time to start the thread.

The NBA released its 2013-2014 schedule on Tuesday in a televised special on NBATV alongside a release on NBA.com and its team websites.

The season kicks off Tuesday, October 29th as Miami hosts the Chicago Bulls in Derrick Rose's expected return to the court. Then it's the Battle of LA as the Lakers host the Clippers. It could be the return of Kobe Bryant from his Achilles injury he suffered last spring, and will be the regular season debut of Doc Rivers as the Clippers' newest head coach.

It's a massive gamble by the NBA, considering Rose's struggles returning from his ACL injury suffered in the 2012 playoffs and Bryant's more recent Achilles surgery. If those players were to miss the opening night, it's going to make for a very underwhelming opening night of basketball, regardless of the markets involved for ratings.

Opening week continues on Thursday with the Bulls hosting the Knicks in what is likely to be Rose's return to the United Center in the regular season. The Knicks will be on a back to back, opening the season on Wednesday vs. the Bucks. Thursday night the revamped Warriors visit the Clippers, who are clearly the hot team, with two national appearances in the first three days.

Opening week concludes Friday with the Nets' home opener vs. the Heat, followed by another Lakers home game, this time vs. the defending Western Conference Champion San Antonio Spurs.

On the NBA's biggest regular season day, Christmas Day, starts with the Nets hosting Chicago, followed by the scoring-champ rematch of Carmelo Anthony vs. Kevin Durant as the Thunder visit Madison Square Garden to face the Knicks. Then in the main event, the Heat play the Lakers at Staples Center. Dwight Howard joins the Christmas fun as the Rockets travel to San Antonio to face the Spurs. And in the night cap, the Clippers visit Oracle Arena to take on Steph Curry and the Warriors.

Monday, January 20th continues the NBA's tradition of making Martin Luther King Jr. Day a huge basketball event, with four games on the schedule. Brooklyn travels across the bridge to take on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, followed by the Grizzlies hosting the Pelicans, the Lakers taking on the Bulls at the United Center, and the Pacers facing the Warriors in the bay to cap off the night.

The Lakers first meet Dwight Howard on November 13th in Houston, and again on January 14th. They first host Howard at Staples Center on February 19th, and again on April 8th.

The NBA Finals rematches occur on January 26th in Miami and March 6th in San Antonio. Will Gregg Popovich rest his starters? It's not a back to back, as the Spurs face Atlanta on the 24th, but it is in the middle of a three-game road trip.

Despite the departure of Dwight Howard, the Lakers keep the max number of nationally televised (non-NBA TV) games in the league at 25, tied with the Knicks and Heat. The Clippers have 21 nationally televised games, while the defending Western Champs, the Spurs, only have 15. The Bulls jump to 24 national games, with the league banking on Rose's return to carry audiences. The Thunder also feature on national TV 24 times.

Houston, with newly-signed Dwight Howard and James Harden, feature 20 games on national television, a pretty low number given the star power. The Mavericks won the NBA title in 2011, and now have just eight national TV appearances. The Warriors meanwhile jump to 17 games, while Eastern Conference finalist Indiana only appears 10 time next season. To put that in perspective, the Denver Nuggets appear 13 times.

The rest of the schedule is at the link.

That's his schtick I guess. He's done it his whole career. I hated him before he joined the Clippers and he's still kind of annoying to me now.

It was a good game by the Clippers. I'm surprised the Mavs stayed in it as long as they did. I thought they'd be worn down after that amazing OT win vs OKC.

I want them to finish 0-9 and miss the playoffs. Would be the best thing for the team and the franchise. We could flush out Mark Jackson and Harrison Barnes

I only wish he had hit him with the ball... I know the NBA will ALWAYS grab Kobe's ass to ram his cock all the farther down their throats, but it's cool watching somebody disrespect Kobe!

KB's a **** and Shack should have kicked his ass until his brains leaked out his ear!

Grizz finish the season against the Suns and Mavs, which will likely be play in/out games for all three teams. None of those teams are going to be easy outs, but I can't imagine the Spurs or Thunder would be thrilled to see the Grizz in the first round. They'd most likely get through the Grizz, but they'd be worn down by the effort.


The Spurs are 3-0 vs. the Grizz so far this year. That team isn't nearly as good as it has been in the past.

I'm glad that the Blazers look to hold down the 5 seed. They seem soft. Beverley injury might hurt the Rockets a bit. Lin has not really progressed and they traded Aaron Brooks recently. Still should beat Portland, but that's as far as they'll get. Weak bench beyond Asik. The expectation is greater the next couple of years. Morey and McHale need to make it happen.

the fact that Knicks are only 1 GB and the Cavs are 2.5 GB is sad, because both those teams are horrible.

They haven't really been full strength until about a month ago. The Spurs are the class of the West, but my point is that I'm quite certain the Spurs would rather deal with the Suns than the Grizz. Don't worry Native, I'm not suggesting your Spurs aren't the best team of all time.
