Celtics Release 2013-14 Schedule: The Breakdown

 

Last night, the Celtics released their 2013-14 regular season slate. As the roster has been overturned, the team’s national spotlight has been diminished as well, with just a handful of national TV games and no TNT games on the docket. So what’s out there to keep your eyes on. Here are a few of the dates to keep in mind.

KG, PIERCE COME HOME: These are the dates everyone will be fighting for in the season ticket pool this year. Sunday January 26th, in a rare 6:30 p.m. start will be the first non-preseason return by the team’s beloved veterans. Over/under on the length of their tribute videos is three minutes. Other matchups include Dec 10 in Brooklyn, March 7th and March 21st.

DOC COMES HOME: The reception for Doc may not be as welcoming as it will be for Pierce and KG, but his return is certainly one to circle on the calendar. December 11th at the Garden. In a funny twist, the C’s will be coming off a game with Brooklyn the night before, so it will be an emotional couple days for Rajon Rondo and company.

A ROUGH NOVEMBER: If Rajon Rondo isn’t ready for the season opener, it could be a tough start to the C’s campaign at the start of the regular season. 18 games, including ten on the road await the C’s right off the bat, including six back-to-backs. The legs are younger now, but it will create a tough learning curve for Brad Stevens and company right out of the gate.

BACK-TO-BACKS: 20. Middle of the pack for the NBA.

ROAD TRIPS: Only two trips to the west coast this season, one coming in the second week of January (five games in seven nights) and the other will be the team’s usual roadie immediately following the All-Star Break, which will feature four games in six days.

Any other takeaways from the slate?

    A few factors sink in as you look at the Cs' slate…

    1. Ten national TV games… and mainly against mid-tier teams like the Lakers, Detroit, Milwaukee…

    2. Not only do we not play on opening night, but we open against Toronto.

    3. Most damning of all… I don't really feel excited about any single game on this schedule. No must-see match-up, no "oh man, that'll be a barnburner!" – I'll still be watching, but there's just so much less enthusiasm now that the team is no longer good (nor should it be).

    When KG and PP come back, that will be an absolute, must watch game. Really looking forward to it.

    Good to see a front loaded schedule with a road heavy start. Gotta get your loosing on straight out of the gate. Better karma if you actually try to get better as the year goes on.
