The release of the NBA schedule always represents a time for fans to circle a few upcoming dates on their calendars, and we’re here to provide a few annotations to those circled dates as we look forward to the Warriors’ upcoming 2013-14 season.

  • As per usual, the Warriors will play each Eastern Conference foe twice and all Western opponents four times, except for four teams. This year the three-game series’ go to: Houston, Minnesota, Oklahoma City and New Orleans.

  • The Warriors will play in 15 total back-to-back sets (eight road/road, four home/road, three away/home), which ties the fewest back-to-backs the Warriors have played in a season in the team’s West Coast Era (also had 15 sets in 2008-09).

  • Games by month: October – 2, November – 15, December – 16, January – 15, February – 11, March – 14, April – 9

  • Games by day: Monday – 8, Tuesday – 12, Wednesday – 15, Thursday – 9, Friday – 17, Saturday – 10, Sunday - 11

  • Golden State will make a franchise-record 17 appearances on national television, including nine games on ESPN and eight on TNT, and will have an additional nine games broadcast on NBA TV… The Warriors are also slated for a game on ESPN Radio (Jan. 30 vs. the Clippers) for the first time ever in the regular season.

  • The Warriors will open the season at home (vs. the Lakers on Oct. 30) for the 11th time in the last 12 years (last season’s opener was in Phoenix)… The Warriors, though, have won just three of those last 10 home season openers, losing five of their last six when opening the season at home… All-time, the Dubs are 1-5 in season openers vs. the Lakers, which last happened in 2006, coming away with their lone win in 1982.

  • After opening with the Lakers, the Warriors will then travel to L.A. to face the Clippers before coming back home to host Sacramento, completing the full California circuit in the first three games of the season.

  • For the fourth-straight season, a tilt with the Clippers comes within the first four games of the season, with this year’s game—the road opener and second game on the docket—falling on Halloween Night… Golden State defeated Phoenix on Oct. 31 last year and boasts an 11-8 mark all-time on All Hallows’ Eve.

  • Despite opening in Oakland, 14 of the first 22 games will be away from the friendly confines of Oracle Arena, including five of the first seven… In fact, the first half of the Warriors’ schedule features 24 road games (17 home) while the second half features just 17 (24 home)… The Dubs will finish with 13 of their last 20 games at home.

  • The Warriors have a pair of season-long five-game homestands from Jan. 20-30 and March 18-30. Golden State was 4-3 on a season-long seven-game homestand in 2012-13.

  • Thirteen of Golden State’s 15 road games against the Eastern Conference will come in bunches, as part of East Coast road trips of six games (Feb. 24-Mar. 5) and a season-long seven games (Dec. 29-Jan. 8), excluding only the team’s annual stops in Philadelphia (Nov. 4) and Charlotte (Dec. 9)… The Warriors will try to replicate their success from last year’s season-long seven-game Eastern Conference roadie in which they posted a 6-1 record (.857), their best seven-plus game road trip in franchise history, becoming the ninth team in NBA history to come away from a trip of seven-or-more games with only one loss.

  • The Warriors will be home for the holidays, hosting the Clippers on Christmas Day in their 23rd Christmas Day game in franchise history (they hold a 9-13 record on the holiday)… In 2011, the last time the Dubs played on Dec. 25, it was the Clippers who defeated them 105-86 at Oracle in what was also the season opener of the abbreviated 66-game slate.

  • In another holiday game, the Warriors host the Pacers on Jan. 20 as part of the NBA’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration… Golden State has won each of its last four MLK Jr. Day games, including a 106-99 victory over the Clippers last season, and holds an all-time mark of 13-8 on the occasion, including a 13-6 ledger at home (since MLK Jr. Day became a national holiday in 1986).

  • The Warriors will return to Madison Square Garden on Feb. 28, a day after the one-year anniversary of Stephen Curry’s career-high and 2012-13 NBA season-high 54-point outing at the Garden vs. the Knicks (Feb. 27, 2012).

  • The playoff push is on in full force in April, when all nine of Golden State’s games to end the regular season come against Western Conference foes.

  • Golden State travels to the Staples Center on April 11 for the club’s 400th regular season game against the Lakers.

  • The Warriors, who last year ended the Nuggets’ season with a 4-2 series win in the first round of the playoffs, will close the regular season against Denver for the first time ever.
