The National Basketball Association announced the league schedule the other night, so here is a quick glance at the Washington Wizards’ schedule.

  • The team opens the season in Orlando against the Magic Thursday, October 28 at 8 PM.  This will be John Wall’s debut.
  • The home opener is Tuesday, November 2 at 7 PM against the 76ers.  John Wall will face off against the second overall pick Evan Turner.
  • November 6 Cleveland visits, marking the first time Antawn Jamison comes back.
  • They first play Miami Monday, November 29 in Miami at 7:30 PM.
  • February 26 the Mavs come to town (Caron, Haywood, and Stevenson’s first time back).
  • The team plays 21 back-to-backs, and 11 of their last 17 games of the year are on the road.
  • The Wizards have 8 nationally televised games, 5 of them being on NBA TV, with the rest on TNT (Oct. 28 @ Orlando, Nov. 25 @ ATL) and one on ESPN (Jan. 21 vs Phoenix).
  • The holiday games include: Thanksgiving @ ATL, New Years Eve @ Indiana, New Years Day vs New Orleans, and MLK Day vs Utah.
  • The longest road trip is 5 games from March 22-28, as they play Portland, the Clippers, Denver, Golden State, and Utah.
  • Washington has two 4-game homestands.

Other interesting points on the schedule are Nov. 19 when Greivis Vasquez comes to town, and January 25 when Denver travels to DC (there has been rumored interest in Carmelo Anthony for this upcoming offseason).  The Lakers, Celtics, and Thunder only play in DC once each.
