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.

He's a star. He's a top 10-15 player right now, and that's coming off a star turn in the playoffs.

He is another up coming star that is really coming into his own, much like Curry is as well.

Great game between the Thunder and Wizards tonight. Westbrook and Nene get booted with around 3 minutes left and the Thunder down by 10. Durant hits a cold blooded 3 to send the game to OT. Some big shots by Ibaka, Lamb' Reggie and PJ3 tonight. Feeling much better about our bench.

Bradley Beal is pretty damn good. I think Washington could be a playoff team in the East.

Heard from someone we are talking to the Sixers about Evan Turner. Interesting....

Yeah. Lakers aren't very good.

Wolves tearing them apart in LA. They have a 29 point lead with 6:30 left in the 3rd

There is no talent on that team. There is only 2 players worth a damn Jordan hill as a back up and X Henry again as a back up. After that nothing.

Wolves/Clippers on right now. It's only the 1st quarter, but so far the teams are pretty competitive. 26-21 Wolves with 1:42 left in the first.

Hope it remains a good game!

Clippers lead 59-58 at halftime.

What a game! These are two of the best teams in terms of offensive efficiency in the league squaring up against each other.

Utah is 0-8. Wow. They've only had 2 games in which they lost by less than 10 points.

I had no clue Chris Paul was this much of a flopper. God, he's annoying. I always had more respect for him than what he's doing right now.

Easily one of the worst. This one was a classic last year.

I can't stand him. The shot to the nuts in college, the flopping, the little man complex.....

Hell of a player, would love to have him on my team, but do not like him.
