Heat, Lakers and Knicks Lead With 25 National TV Games Each

A closer look at the 2013-14 regular season schedule reveals, not too surprisingly, that three of the most popular (and polarizing) teams in the NBA will be featured on national television the most. Per NBA.com: “The Lakers, Heat and Knicks lead with 25 scheduled appearances on TNT, ESPN and ABC national telecasts, followed by the Thunder and Bulls with 24, the Clippers with 21 and the Rockets with 20. In addition, NBA TV will show all of those teams and many others as part of a 96-game schedule that includes 19 Fan Night games. Fans will vote on NBA.com each week to determine which games will appear on NBA TV for the Tuesday night Fan Night games.”
