The 2013-2014 schedule was released on NBATV at 6:00 PM on Tuesday evening. The Cavaliers have been active in free agency this summer and have been rewarded 9 nationally televised games by the NBA. The Cavaliers will open the season on October 30th when the new-look Brooklyn Nets visit Cleveland. The Cavs will have 3 games on ESPN, 1 on TNT and 5 on NBATV.
On a personal note, I have maintained for years that Cleveland would start to get over the events of the summer of 2010 when the Cavs start having games televised nationally that are not against the Heat. Between NBATV, TNT and ESPN, Cleveland will play the Brookly Nets, Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards. Of all of those games, the Wizards is the most intriging to me. Both teams have elite point guards that were taken first overall, they both drafted a shooting guard high in the lottery in 2012, they both have Brazillian big men who have been criminally underrated and both teams finally have some veteran help to round out the roster.
The Cavs play 20 sets of back-to-back games. Their longest road trip is 5 games long and is against the Jazz, Kings, Lakers, Trailblazers and Nuggets. The team only has two sets of four games in five nights. The latter comes in the final month of the season, which could be beneficial due to teams resting players and jockying for lottery position. The Cavs do not have any very long home stands or road trips, which is a welcome change of the crazy schedule they had last year. With the Cavs trying to make the postseason this year, this schedule is a welcome change.
The schedule is as follows:
