(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The NBA released the 2009-2010 regular season schedule on Tuesday.
The Indiana Pacers will open the new season on the road as they face the Hawks in Atlanta on Wednesday, October 28th.
Two days later, the blue-and-gold will have their home opener against the Miami Heat.
The schedule contains three four-game road trips, including a stretch from mid-February to mid-March in which they will play ten of 13 games away from Conseco Fieldhouse.
Another difficult stretch comes in late January when they will play back-to-back home games against last year's NBA finalists, taking on the league-champion Los Angeles Lakers on the 27th and the eastern conference-champion Cleveland Cavaliers on the 29th.
