    Me too. Heat, Knicks, Nets, Lakers and Thunder will all likely get games, put the Pacers in with that and you have your three games.

    No way we get a Christmas game IMO we dont draw ratings like other teams. Better shot of NOLA getting a Christmas game than us IMO. Hope I am wrong but I dont see a way on earth we get a game on Christmas.

    Clippers will probably be in the Christmas day mix. Knicks/Nets, Lakers/Clippers, and Heat/OKC matchups would be interesting.

    Just give us a somewhat easy first 10-15 games or so. End the 1st 3/4 weeks of the season with like a 67% win percentage, keep the early interest there.

    I can see the league also playing up a few "superstars against their old teams" angles for Christmas Day. Lakers/Suns or Heat/Celtics for example. I'm just looking forward to a decompressed schedule this year!!

    Here are a few leaks

    http://www.sportsmediawatch.com/2012...ased-thursday/

    Two teams that have combined for a single playoff victory over the past five seasons will meet during the opening week of the NBA season.

    The Brooklyn (nťe New Jersey) Nets will host the New York Knicks on TNT Thursday, November 1, according to Newsday. The game would mark the Nets’ first appearance on national television since April 2011, and the team’s first home game on national TV since the 2007 playoffs.
    Knicks/Nets is one of several possible games that have been leaked to the media in recent days. The South-Florida Sun Sentinel reported earlier this week that the Heat would host the Celtics on Opening Night and play the Thunder on Christmas Day.
    The full 2012-13 NBA regular season schedule will be released Thursday night. As has become routine, NBA TV will televise a schedule release show at 7 PM ET.
    (Wednesday’s news from Newsday via SBNation.com; additional news from Turner Sports)

    All teams with wins in the playoffs will have national television appearances except for one as-yet unnamed team.

    I have a feeling that would be the Orlando Magic. When they made the schedule they probably figured Dwight would be gone.

    Well, no, that wasn't a quote, that was my addition. It is my subtle way of foreshadowing that there will be no Pacers national games except maybe an NBATV appearance.

    There will be at least 5 on a combination of ESPN/ABC and TNT. Doubtful we'll get any ABC games. I will predict two TNT games and 6 ESPN games. So 8 total.

    We had a thread about this topic a month or two ago and I think it was suggested the Grizzlies were a good guide. In the 2011 playoffs they made it to the second round of the playoffs, they are a small market and have no star players - or at least not marketable players on a national scale. I forget how many national games the Grizzlies had last season

    The Pacers will definitely get some national TV games this season. No ABC games, but ESPN and TNT for sure. The marquee teams, like the Heat, Lakers, Knicks, Thunder, Celtics, and maybe even the Clippers, Nets, and Bulls will get the majority of the TV games. But they can't play each other every game, so TV needs some good teams to put against them. That's where the Pacers come in.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Pacers hosted the Heat in a TNT game, considering how intense that series was last season.

    You might lose that bet. I know you don't watch college basketball, but the Hornets will be on TV some because of Anthony Davis. If they have 5 games, I wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics played the Hornets at New Orleans at 8:00. Doc coaching against his son, plus Anthony Davis testing himself against Kevin Garnett.

    The general public (which includes the guys at the networks who set up the broadcast schedule) firmly believes the Heat just didn't care in the first couple of games and, once they decided to actually play ball, proceeded to totally destroy the Pacers. TNT won't want that kind of boring blowout on the schedule.

    Now, if we get to at least the second round THIS season, maybe an ESPN2 game or two next season.

    None at the Fieldhouse until they can at least sell out the lower bowl, though. No one wants to see a half-empty arena on national TV.

    Not really sure where you are hearing that from. A lot of my non-Indiana based friend didn't even know about the existence of the Pacers and now see them as not only respectable but a legitimate conference title threat. We also had a nationally televised game at home last season (vs. the 76ers, another low draw team), so I feel like you are incorrect.

    All I hope is that Indiana gets Charlotte on a weekend. I would love to see them play a time or two down here.

    Pacers vs Mavs will be interesting. DC is really going to want to stick it to his old team.

    The Pacers will sell out for a Heat game. Heck, even the Pistons sold out when the Heat came to town. No worries there.

    You misread I said the Hornets have a better chance than the Pacers of getting a Christmas day game. I dont think they get one unless it's like the 10:30 pm game when you normally dont see a good matchup.

    If I had to put a numer 5% Hornets get one


    .000009% Pacers get one.
