Warriors draw respect with 17 national TV games


Full Warriors 2013-14 schedule


The Warriors announced their 2013-2014 schedule Tuesday and my, how things have changed.

Coming off a 47-35 regular-season record and an appearance in the Western Conference Semifinals, the Warriors’ 2013-14 schedule includes a franchise-record 17 national TV appearances on ESPN and TNT. The Warriors had eight scheduled national TV games in 2012-13.

Golden State will open the regular season at home against the Lakers on Oct. 30 and are slated to host the nightcap game on Christmas against the Clippers.

The Warriors will be on the road for 14 of their first 22 games, and will end the season by playing 13 of its final 20 games at home.

The team will head out on a season-long seven-game road trip from Dec. 29 to Jan. 8, and will enjoy a pair of season-long, five-game home stands from Jan. 20 to 30 and March 18 to 30.

The Warriors are scheduled to play 15 back-to-backs, which matches the fewest that Golden State has played in a season since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962 (also 15 in 2008-09).

Golden State will also be taking place in the 2013 NBA Global Games in China during preseason playing the Los Angeles Lakers twice on Oct. 15 in Beijing and Oct. 18 in Shanghai.

This will be the Warriors’ second trip to China — the team played in Beijing and Guangzhou in 2008.

Tip-off for most of Golden State’s home games will be 7:30 p.m., with the exception of three Sunday games – Jan. 26 vs. Portland; March 9 vs. Phoenix; and April 6 vs. Utah – which will start at 6:00 p.m.
