Phoenix Suns' 2013-14 Schedule Begins at Home Against the Portland Trailblazers

The NBA has unveiled its full 2013-14 schedule of 1230 regular season games. The Phoenix Suns will play in 82 of those, debuting at home on Wednesday, October 30 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

That first matchup will feature Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe, Alex Len, Archie Goodwin, and Micheal Beasley other Suns squaring off against the likes of Damian Lillard, Lamarcus Aldridge, CJ McCollum, Robin Lopez, and Terrel Harris other Trail Blazers.

The Suns will have five nationally televised games: four on NBA TV, one on ESPN, and ZERO on TNT. Check out the full 2013-14 NBA TV National Schedule here. Phoenix will have 18 back-to-back stretches through the season.

Some quick observations: Steve Nash and the Lakers will come to town for the first time this season on Monday, December 23. Eric Bledsoe will play against the Clippers in LA on December 30. Jared Dudley doesn't return to Phoenix until March 4, 2014. The Suns will end the season with 9 out of the last 13 games on the road, which will no doubt hurt the team's late-season playoff surge!

Check out the full 2013-14 Suns schedule below. I bolded the games that I think might be "of note." Be sure to check out when the Sixers visit Phoenix on December 28th in a premier Tankapalooza matchup.

2014 NBA Draft

Perhaps the most important game event for Suns fans this season will be the 2014 NBA Draft. Next year's draft will be held on Thursday, June 26, 2014. There are exactly 324 days between now and then, not that anyone's counting or anything...
