Better due a lot damage in the first part of the schedule.
We sure do get to see how we size up against some of the really good teams in the first couple of months. It will be interesting, if we don't make any moves, how Dame will react if we're under .500 at the end of the year.
i counted 5 TNT games, 4 ESPN, and 6 NBA TV games.
Teams we only play 3 times...
Golden State (2A/1H)
New Orleans (2A/1H)
Wow--the schedule after the all-star break is just brutal. Basically a 10-game road trip (4 road, 1 home, 5 road), then home for 5-in-8, then another 5-game trip.
Definitely don't want to trade this year's FRP...
That stretch from 1/13 to 2/2 looks pretty rough as well. 6-game trip, home B2B, then 4-game trip.
In contrast, from 11/30 to 1/9, they get 15 home games, and just 4 on the road.
Interesting that they put us playing both our away matchups against Minnesota and San Antonio without games between with Houston doing the same here. Will see if there is as much demand for those games. Ideally, they would do more of this to limit travel.
Lakers going into their Christmas Day game stinging from a Moda Center bitch slap. And the national media won't mention it.
We play them NOV 6th not Dec 23rd...good thought though
You're right--it's the Nets whom we'll beat down in advance of Christmas, which will motivate them to pummel the Lakers. Even better!
Lots of road games to close out, but march on out isn't a murders gallery, so if the blazers haven't fallen apart before then good chance to finish strong.
Moving the schedule forward is creating a bunch of conflicts with Beaver football games - even 1PM kickoffs won't work. Going to miss PHX and Philly.
Also, 3 of our first 11 are against the Clippers. We play SA 3 times in 9 days at the end of the year.
We are over do
The Blazers SHOULD win that game right. I was told they are the better team.
You could record the games and watch later?
Damn we are home for 1 day from March 2nd to the 23rd. That end of schedule, while not teeming with too many tough games... if playoff seeding is involved that's gonna be rough as hell just from a mental/physical standpoint with all the traveling. And the 5 in 8 at home right before the last road trip. Jesus. Get fucked, they said.
Did I read correctly that we play the Clippers 3 times in the first 20 days of the season? That's nuts..tie breaker could be established before either team breaks a sweat in the regular season
3 times in the first 11 game is certainly unusual. And the 4th game is in the first week in December. All 4 games wrapped up in the first 25 games of the season. I'd imagine that's extremely rare, but maybe not
