Warriors Announce Schedule For 2013-14 Season, Presented By Kaiser Permanente
Team To Host Lakers On Opening Night & Clippers On Christmas; Docket Includes 17 National TV Games

The National Basketball Association announced today that the Golden State Warriors 2013-14 season, presented by Kaiser Permanente, begins on Wednesday, October 30, when the team plays host to the Los Angeles Lakers at Oracle Arena on Opening Night. Additionally, the Warriors will play host to the Los Angeles Clippers at Oracle Arena on Wednesday, December 25, in the night-cap of the NBA’s annual slate of Christmas games.

The Warriors, coming off a season in which the team posted a 47-35 regular-season record and made an appearance in the Western Conference Semifinals, are slated to make a franchise-record 17 national television appearances this season, with nine (9) games scheduled on ESPN and eight (8) on TNT. Golden State’s ESPN appearances include the Christmas Night game against the Clippers; the team’s trip to Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks on Friday, February 28 (one day after the one-year anniversary of Stephen Curry’s historic 54-point performance at MSG last season); and the regular-season finale at the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, April 16, in a rematch of the teams’ 2013 NBA Playoff series. Appearances on TNT’s exclusive Thursday night coverage include the lone Bay Area visit by the Oklahoma City Thunder on November 14; a home game against the San Antonio Spurs on December 19 in a rematch of last season’s Conference Semifinals; and a return visit by the Clippers on January 30 in a game that will also mark Golden State’s first-ever regular-season appearance on ESPN Radio. In addition to their 17 combined appearances on ESPN and TNT, the Warriors also have nine (9) games currently scheduled to air on NBA TV, the league’s 24-hour cable network.

Additional highlights of Golden State’s home schedule include two games against the Houston Rockets on Friday, December 13 (ESPN), and Thursday, February 20 (TNT), as well as return visits by the Spurs on Friday, March 22, and the Lakers on Saturday, December 21. Every Eastern Conference team will visit Oracle Arena once during the season, including the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, February 6 (TNT); the two-time defending NBA Champion Miami Heat on Wednesday, February 12; the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday, February 22; and the Knicks on Sunday, March 30.

Golden State will be on the road for 14 of its first 22 contests to start the season, and will end the campaign by playing 13 of its final 20 games at home. The team embarks on a season-long seven-game road trip from December 29 – January 8, and enjoys a pair of season-long, five-game home stands from January 20-30 and March 18-30. The Warriors have 15 back-to-backs on the schedule, 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). The 15 back-to-backs include three road/home, four home/road, and eight road/road.

Tip-off time for the majority of Golden State’s home games during the 2013-14 season will be 7:30 p.m., with the exception of three Sunday games – January 26 vs. Portland; March 9 vs. Phoenix; and April 6 vs. Utah – which will start at 6:00 p.m.

The 2013-14 NBA schedule will once again use a 30-team format (two conferences of 15 teams each, with three five-team divisions within each conference) in which teams will play each opponent within their division four times, while playing six of the remaining 10 teams in their conference four times, and the four remaining teams in their conference only three times. Teams will also play all 15 opponents outside of their conference two times each. For 2013-14, the Warriors will play only three games against the following Western Conference opponents: Houston Rockets (two at home, one away), Minnesota Timberwolves (two at home, one away), Oklahoma City Thunder (one at home, two away), and New Orleans Pelicans (one at home, two away).
