Oklahoma City Thunder Regular Season Schedule Released

It’s that time we’ve all been waiting for, the 2017-18 NBA schedule has been released. There are some really cool things in the schedule, like we’re going to Mexico! Then, the bad ones: Durant comes to Oklahoma City on Nov. 22.

Overall, the Thunder will play on national television 37 times. This includes NBATV. All non-exclusive national TV games will be on FS Oklahoma for the umpteenth year.

Here’s how it breaks down by appearances, most to lowest.

  • TNT: 12
  • NBATV: 10
  • ESPN: 9
  • ABC: 6

Not counting NBATV games, the Thunder’s 27 times on national TV, is the fourth most in the league behind Warriors (31), Rockets (28) and the Cavaliers (27).

For the first time in league history, the schedule does not have any team playing four games in five nights. This is part of the NBA’s effort to cut down on injuries and reduce the number of games in which teams rest healthy players.

Back-to-back slates also have been reduced to an average of 14.4 per team, down from 16.3 per team last season. No team has more than 16 back-to-backs this season. The Thunder have 11 back-to-backs this season.

Here is the schedule:
