The Indiana Pacers' 2013-14 regular-season schedule features some noteworthy games Pacers fans shouldn't miss.
For a game to elicit more attention than others, some important storylines must be considered.
Or how about Chris Copeland in a Pacers uniform against the archrival New York Knicks?
Granted, there are also other games on tap in 2013-14 that should pique the interest of fans in Indianapolis:
- Victor Oladipo's NBA debut in an Orlando Magic uniform on opening day, October 29
- Cody Zeller's first game in Indianapolis on December 13
- Brad Stevens calling the shots for the Boston Celtics at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on December 22
However, for the purposes of this article, we will stick to NBA storylines from last season and even beyond—not on NBA debuts of Indiana sports icons.
Another important thing to consider: The Pacers will be in 17 nationally televised games.
From one in 2011-12 to seven last season to the current 17.
It's high time the Pacers get the recognition they deserve.
