Not much National TV exposure this year (as expected). Of course, that stuff changes all the time anyway.

No Thanksgiving day game?!

Yeah, whassup with that?

Unless, TNT isn't going to have Thanksgiving games anymore due to the NFL night game they're starting this year.

[edit] Yep, that's what it is. No Thanksgiving games, undoubtedly due to NFL Network.

AAH! NO GAME ON THANKSGIVING!? Not even a game on my birthday. :tongue: It's usually one or the other. Play football, eat, head downtown to watch the game if it's at home, then go home and eat again.

Yikes! Look at that six game road trip!

3 of our last four games are on national television...close finish to make the playoffs anyone?

Against the Hornets for home opener...

Well you ALWAYS play your division teams 4 times. And you play the other conference 2 times. Then you split the rest of your conference teams between 3 or 4 game series simply to keep the schedule at 82 games (if you had 4 vs every East team you'd have 86 games).

They rotate the 4 teams out I believe automatically and I'm pretty certaint its always 2 from each of the other 2 divisions that you only get 3 times.



Anyway, easier start this year, much rougher finish. March and April look to be tough, including some nasty road trips near the end (TX, West Coast w/ PHX, LAC, Sacto). This team better jump out to a good start because its going to be really tough to finish out strong.

I very seriously doubt we start off with a good record. We play 4 quality teams and the teams that suck we play have had our number as of late.

I can easily see us going 2-5 to start off.

We should start off strong. That's a pretty easy first month of teams to play. We only have five actual playoff teams and most of them lost in the first round. The problem is the road schedule, but good teams find a way to win on the road.

First month should tell us a lot about what to expect.

And how exactly do people think we are going to go 6-0 have we EVER in the history of the team done that? We didn't do that the year we won 61 games, we didn't do it the year of the brawl and we didn't do it last year, and you think we can do it this year.

I don't think anybody said we will. They just said we 'could' - as in 'it's a possibility'. It's not like 6-0 is the equivalent of going undefeated in a season. Not an impossible feat by any means. Are you even a Pacers fan? I hardly ever see you say anything positive about the team. That's why I ask.

Yipeee. Fred's homecoming is 1-27-07.

Ralph Snart
08-01-2006, 03:54 PM
We've lost our allure. Of all the big games mentioned, th only one that mentions the Pacers is our opening night game against the Hornet. Wow.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/columns/story?columnist=stein_marc&id=2536337



Next season's 82-game schedules for all 30 teams are out.
The next natural step is combing through all those schedules to identify the most important and attractive games, those dates which require prompt punching into your space-age calendar of choice.

Luckily for you, we've already done it here. The following is our annual summertime list of standout dates from the new NBA schedule: Oct. 31, Opening Night
Looks like someone in scheduling is pretty excited about a major (but long dormant) TV market's expected return to prominence. The Chicago Bulls (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=chi) haven't won a playoff series since Michael Jordan (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=175) left them nearly a decade ago, but Ben Wallace (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3149)'s debut in Bulls colors has been deemed sufficiently worthy to score the lead-off slot on a two-game Halloween Night ... against the defending champs, no less. Dwyane Wade (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3708), Shaquille O'Neal (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=847) and the rest of the Miami Heat (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=mia) will be collecting their rings before tipoff, although it remains to be seen whether Pat Riley will be slipping his on as coach or merely as team president.
A bit of bonus advice: If we learned anything during the 2006 playoffs, it's that you don't sleep on the West Coast nightcap. We concede that it'll be a late start in the East, but Phoenix at Los Angeles Lakers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=lal) is a rematch of last season's thrilling seven-game series, serving up an immediate installment of Kobe Bryant (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3118) vs. Raja Bell (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3467) and Amare Stoudemire (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3607)'s likely return to the Suns' starting lineup.

Nov. 1, Opening Night for almost everyone else
Atlanta at Philadelphia is a fitting opener for Allen Iverson (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3094) fans. The Answer will be playing his first game -- since the Sixers yanked him off the trading block and vowed not to move him -- against Iverson's new hometown team. Iverson, don't forget, recently moved his offseason residence to Atlanta. If that sort of back story doesn't get you revved up, perhaps we can tempt you with ESPN's maiden doubleheader of the season: Washington at Cleveland to quickly reopen Gilbert Arenas (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3540)' free-throw wounds from the playoffs, followed by the Los Angeles Clippers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=lac) at Phoenix in what figures to be a Tim Thomas (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3170) boo-fest.
There's plenty more to monitor, too, as we get started on this six-month marathon: Isiah Thomas taking the New York Knicks (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=nyk) to Memphis in his first game as Larry Brown's successor; No. 1 overall draft pick Andrea Bargnani (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=4129) making his NBA bow on the road when Toronto visits New Jersey; and the SuperSonics starting what some locals fear to be their final season in Seattle with a home date against their Pacific Northwest rivals from Portland.

Nov. 2, San Antonio at Dallas
The Mavs, still smarting from their NBA Finals heartbreak, are granted the latest possible start time to the new season. The problem? Waiting until Day 3 doesn't seem like such a bonus when the opener pits them straight away against the San Antonio Spurs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=sas). At least the game is in Dallas, followed by yet another playoff rematch in the second half of a TNT double shot: Denver at the Clippers in what looms as the first official game back together for Kenyon Martin (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3400) and Nuggets coach George Karl.

Nov. 3, First Friday Fireworks
Milwaukee at Toronto presents an early opportunity to assess the Charlie Villanueva (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3933)-for-T.J. Ford (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3711) deal. New Orleans/Oklahoma City at Indiana likewise presents a fast-arriving opportunity for Pacers fans to hiss at Hornets' newcomer Peja Stojakovic (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3119) ... although Pacer People really should be cheering the Hornets for their role in creating the trade exception that is likely to land Al Harrington (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3268) in Indy as Peja's replacement. The night's double offering from ESPN: LeBron James (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3704) brings the Cavaliers to San Antonio, after which Kobe Bryant's Lakers play host to old pal Ray Allen (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3080)'s Sonics.

Nov. 5, Houston at New Orleans/Oklahoma City
The Hornets' home opener is their first of six scheduled appearances at New Orleans Arena. The presence of NBA TV's cameras also make this (fingers crossed) the first national TV glimpse in months of Tracy McGrady (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3179) and Yao Ming (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3599) in uniform for the same game.


Nov. 8, Detroit at Sacramento
What does Big Ben's departure mean in Detroit? It means that the Pistons, for starters, have to wait a week before getting their first major national TV run. ESPN's doubleheader opens with Phoenix at San Antonio -- also known as Amare vs. Tim Duncan (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3173) -- before the Pistons visit Sacramento and new Kings coach Eric Musselman. Nov. 10, Denver at Philadelphia
If the Sixers undo their new anti-trade stance and wind up dealing Iverson, Philly fans probably won't have to wait long to see him. The Nuggets have chased The Answer harder than anyone and still have to rank as the most likely Iverson destination at this stage.

Nov. 17, Toronto at Los Angeles Lakers
Surely you remember what happened the last time we saw the Raptors and the Lakers sharing a floor in L.A. Unofficial over/under on Kobe Bryant's point total: 50. (It has to be well south of 81 points after new Toronto president Bryan Colangelo re-did most of the roster around Chris Bosh (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3707).)

Nov. 23, Happy Thanksgiving
Unexpected development: The league has scrapped its usual double-helping on Turkey Day. No games ... and no protest here. One major holiday without hoops is no crime.

Nov. 24, Dallas at San Antonio
We're guessing Duncan and his Spurs will relish that Thanksgiving off more than most, since it falls between a Wednesday ESPN date with Shaq's Heat and this ESPN encounter with Dirk Nowitzki (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3252)'s Mavs.

Dec. 14, Orlando at Charlotte
You figure this game made it onto TNT's schedule strictly on the premise that J.J. Redick (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=4139)'s back will be sturdy enough to square off with the Bobcats' Adam Morrison (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=4131). After the Fran Vazquez draft fiasco, Orlando can only hope.

Dec. 25, Merry Christmas
No one will accuse the NBA of holiday excess this season. After a lights-out Thanksgiving, there's only one Christmas Day offering instead of the usual two or three ... and you only get one guess to identify it. That's right: It's Lakers at Heat -- the first Kobe vs. Shaq meeting since O'Neal won his first championship ring without Bryant -- on ABC's first broadcast of the season. Yet again.

Jan. 1, Boston at Portland
There are only two games on the first day of 2007 and the best of those two is Sebastian Telfair (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3830)'s first game in Portland as a Celtic.

Jan. 6, Detroit at Chicago
Wow. Didn't see this coming. The first of four Pistons-Bulls games isn't until January, isn't in Detroit and isn't on ESPN or TNT. NBA TV will have Big Ben's first encounter with the team that made him famous.

Jan. 15, Miami at L.A. Lakers
It was last Martin Luther King Day when Shaq and Kobe publicly buried their feud. On this Martin Luther King Day, TNT apparently wants to make sure it's a lasting truce.

Jan. 21, Dallas at Miami
The every-Sunday portion of ABC's schedule tips off with a Finals rematch: Mavs at Heat. Unofficial over/under on D-Wade's free-throw attempts: 23.

Feb. 1: Cleveland at Miami
You have to wait three months for your first LeBron vs. D-Wade duel this season, but then you get three in the month of February.

Feb. 16-18, All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas
The most anticipated three days of All-Star gluttony in our time? Who would dare dispute that?

Feb. 22, Miami at Dallas
Another Finals rematch, this one on TNT. Of greater importance, of course, is the fact that the league's annual trading deadline arrives at 3 p.m.

Feb. 25, Chicago at Detroit
OK. This is more like it. Big Ben's emotional return to Motown is a Sunday lunchtime date on ABC, followed by LeBron vs. D-Wade in Cavs at Heat. Not a bad afternoon. Definitely not when there's a bonus session in the evening on ESPN: Sacramento at Indiana for Ron Artest (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3339)'s lone Conseco Fieldhouse appearance of the season.

March 1, Charlotte at Portland
Morrison visits Portland for the first time as a pro, after the Blazers ignored the pleas of their fans who wanted them to bypass LaMarcus Aldridge (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=4130) and draft the former Gonzaga star at No. 2 overall. Maybe the Bobcats' new president will make the trip, too, since MJ -- like Morrison -- slipped to No. 3 in 1984 when the Blazers decided they had to have Sam Bowie.

March 17, Utah at Cleveland
We've been writing about this one for three years, but St. Patrick's Day should finally bring us Carlos Boozer (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3632)'s first game in Cleveland since his unforgettably messy exit in the summer of 2004. After injuries intervened each of the last two seasons, we'll go out on a limb and guarantee Boozer's presence for the long-promised boo shower awaiting him. Just don't ask us to explain why this season's only Cavs-Jazz game in Utah is on Valentine's Day instead of this one.

April 1, April Fools' Day
The serious portion of the afternoon comes via ABC. In a re-run of last spring's two conference finals matchups, it's Miami at Detroit followed by Dallas at Phoenix.

April 4, Chicago at Detroit
Big Ben's second visit to Motown will be carried by ESPN and comes just a few days after the Bulls play host to the Pistons on TNT on March 29.

April 15, San Antonio at Dallas
Can't say for sure that the Texas rivals till will be battling for the No. 1 seed in the West this late in the season. Yet it does seem safe to suggest that this is a fine way to bid farewell to the regular-season portion of ABC's coverage and shift into playoff mode.

I don't think anybody said we will. They just said we 'could' - as in 'it's a possibility'. It's not like 6-0 is the equivalent of going undefeated in a season. Not an impossible feat by any means. Are you even a Pacers fan? I hardly ever see you say anything positive about the team. That's why I ask.

I could be a blind fanboy and be positive about things. But I am a realist. And what exactly is there to be positive about.

Our PG and C position are an Injury away from being totally ****ed. We lack outside shooting. Until we sign Harrington we lack a post presence that actually plays in the post occasionally and can stay in the game.

The positive thing I can say is that, when JO leads this team to another disappointing season we have alot of promising youth to build around.

I was flamed last year when I said JO would get injured and our winning % would be better without him. What does it matter that I will get flamed again, I'll be right again.

Tins will go down. JO will be as jump shooting as ever.

Finally get to see the Pacers in Phoenix this year. Haven't been to see them in a couple of years. I'm glad it's in March and not in the winter like it has been lately.

Wow, the Pacers only play the Wizards once here in DC this year.

On a Wednesday of all days.

Now that we have the schedule set I need to start paying attention to whenever you guys set the forum gathering or whatever you call it. I am going to try to make the next one, save it from totally conflicting with my personal schedule

We've lost our allure. Of all the big games mentioned, th only one that mentions the Pacers is our opening night game against the Hornet. Wow.



Feb. 25,
There's a bonus session in the evening on ESPN: Sacramento at Indiana for Ron Artest's lone Conseco Fieldhouse appearance of the season.

Maybe you should rephrase to something like "We don't get a mention unless it's a game against a former player."

I desperately need to shift gears, so I'm going to work on the 07 schedule to look like the one I made last year. I should have it done tonight or tomorrow.

The schedule is now up to date. What's left? Fixing the broadcast schedule (specifically the national TV games), and updating the 23059820598 pages with the "Fundamentals" link (which will now be incorrectly pointing to Pacers.com and I have to switch it back).

. . . the teams that suck have had our number as of late.

I can easily see us going 2-5 to start off.

I don't see how anyone can have an idea how this team will do until we see the season opening roster, and have a few pre-season games under our belts.

As for your statement above, teams that suck had the number of previous Pacer teams. This coming season we are going to have over a 50% change in personal, plus we are supposingly going to be playing a different style. Thus I don't think what past Pacers teams have accomplished will apply to this Pacer team at all.

The fact is we won't know what we have for some time. I can see us winning 60 some games again to struggling to make the playoffs.

It could also be 3-10.

If we are still talking about the first 6 games I'll bet you anything you want to bet that we don't lose that many!

Thanks Hicks, it looks great. Although the CW kinda threw me for a second, I'm just so used to WB4. Peck is going to hate all the 7:00 starts, even Saturday night games start at 7:00

[edit] Initial thoughts:

- Boy, a lot of Wednesday games. Good thing Lost, Bones, and Veronica Mars aren't head-to-head anymore.

- Not very many Tuesday games. I'd be happy, but it'll probably be a bunch of IU games preempting VM instead.

- For all the games, November doesn't look that bad competition wise, at least until you remember how bad we were against sub-.500 teams last year. :(

- Once again, a ****load of home games in February. If I were still going, I'd say it's too many. But I don't have to worry about that anymore.

- March is hell.

- April ain't much better. But when you figure that the NBA always does a good job of setting up playoff positioning in the stretch run, it could of been worse.

We better have our **** together by March, or we're dead. I'm surprised nobody has complained about the number of back-to-backs. I don't feel like the schedule is really released until somebody says we've got more than ever before. :sarcasm:

Kegboy, the NBA average for back to backs is 20 and the Pacers have 21, so there isn't much to complain about there.

It does always seem the Pacers play games in bunches. It isn't the back to backs that kill a team it is the 4 in 5 nights or 5 in 7 nights and then the ones that really kill a team is to play 5 games in 7 nights on a west trip and fly across country and play a home game with only one off day and that is the game where the fan who goes to one game a year has decided to take his whole family and sees the Pacers play a horrible game because they are dead tired. It hurts the quality of play. It turns fans off.

I always figure there are probably 5 wins and 5 losses that are soley schedule related. Actually it may be more like 15 to 20 games total that are wins or losses soley based on the schedule not onm the quality of the two teams involved.


For example the Pacers home game on December 6th, if you are someone who goes to two or three games a season, don't go to that game, the Pacers won't play well after coming off the west coast trip
