Below is the complete 2014-15 Celtics schedule, via NBA.com. I've circled in red all of the times Boston will be playing on ESPN, ABC or TNT:
The C's host the Hawks on ESPN, Wednesday, January 14. Boston does play three other nationally televised contests on NBATV (for people who are aware that channel even exists) on Monday 1/12 against the Pelicans, Sunday 2/22 vs the Lakers in LA, and Monday 3/23 in Brooklyn.
I realize these aren't the 2008 Celtics, and that they did go 25-57 last year. But four national TV games? Come on. The Knicks (37-45) have 23. The Lakers (27-55) have a whopping 28. Even the Sacramento Kings (28-54) will be televised nationwide 7 times. And did I mention that they play in Sacramento?
Only Utah (3), Detriot (3), Philly (2), Orlando (2) and Milwaukee (2) have fewer appearances on a national stage than Boston. What's the deal NBA?
