Sick of hearing Bob Fitzgerald on the TV side? You're in luck! Not only are the Warriors good but the inherent benefits of building a young team with sustainable star ability also means that there will be more ESPN, TNT, ABC and NBATV showtimes throughout the season. And that is exactly what the Warriors get.
Here is the full Golden State Warriors' schedule.
To get some quick notable games in so you guys can post your thoughts in the comments below:
- Back-to-back Pacific Division games to start the season. After hosting the Los Angeles Lakers at home on October 30th, the Warriors will travel to L.A. and face off with what should be a heated rivalry between the two favored ballclubs in the West.
- The first 14 out of 22 games will be on the road. Probably before Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry face injury woes.
- 17 games on either ESPN or TNT in the season. That seems like a franchise record. If not, then I've been sorely misled.
- Christmas Day affair with the Los Angeles Clippers at home. There anything better than this?
- 13 of the last 20 games will be at home.
- I can count.
- Also, a couple tidbits to keep in mind, according to Rusty Simmons of the SF Chronicle:
The Warriors have 15 back-to-backs on the schedule, which matches the fewest in a season since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962 (also 15 in 2008-09). The 15 back-to-backs include three road-home, four home-road, and eight road-road.
Additional highlights of the Warriors’ home schedule include two games against Houston (Dec. 13 and Feb. 20) and another against the Lakers on Dec. 21. Every Eastern Conference team will visit Oracle Arena once during the season, including Chicago on Feb. 6, Miami on Feb. 12, Brooklyn on Feb. 22 and New York Knicks March 30.
What games will you be most looking forward to?
