Here it is
5 of first 6, 12 of first 18 on road. March is 9 road games. February is almost entirely at home.
I like this schedule, though the end (3/23-4/5) is brutal.
5 games in 8 days stretch after the opener
If the Magic trade Dwight Howard in the offseason, the Pistons-Magic game on November 16th might be the worst national TV game ever.
Apparently we have 11 nationally televised games. Wow!

Nice. 7 games on TNT or ESPN. Plus 4 NBATV. I'll take it. We haven't been on TNT in 5 years during the regular season!
We also have an MLK Day game, and New Year's Eve game...both against the Grizzlies.
Really good match ups on national TV too. A lot bigger names than the Sixers
It feels like its been forever since the Pacers had a few appearances on National TV (Playoffs dont count)
Also is it just me or do we start off with a lot of road games?
is it too early to say...82-0!!!!!
Already planning our trips to Charlotte.
the website guys need to make a widescreen version of the schedule wallpaper
I'm going to Chicago on March 23! Spring break

Wow the Pacers getting some mad respect from the networks. I would not have suspected any TNT games. I could see a couple of ESPN match ups, but 7?
Pacers basketball is back!
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
I predicted 8 national TV games and we got 7. 7 is about right for this team
ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo
FROM ELIAS: Based on opponent W-L from last year, toughest schedule this year: Hornets and Kings. Easiest this year: Pacers and Bulls.
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.
