- 14 scheduled national TV appearances (7 on NBA TV, 4 on ESPN, 3 on TNT) one more than last season.
- 23 back-to-back games. None of those back-to-backs include two games at home. Five back-to-backs include two games on the road.
- Larry Drew's head coaching career will start with games @Memphis and @Philadelphia, but he'll have two months of experience under his belt before his first West Coast trip.
- With only seven road games over the last six weeks of the season, a strong finish appears likely.
