(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The NBA released its revised 66-game schedule on Tuesday.
The Indiana Pacers will open their season at home against the Detroit Pistons on December 26th.
They play five of their first seven games on the road while closing out the season with a four-game home stand. The regular season ends April 25th against the Chicago Bulls.
The Pacers will have two stretches of three games in three nights as part of the shortened schedule, one in February and the other in March.
The reduced number of games means that not all Western Conference teams will visit Conseco Fieldhouse this season.
Two teams that won't be coming to Indianapolis are the defending-champion Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Blue and Gold were snubbed by the NBAs national television partners.
They are not scheduled to appear on ABC, ESPN or TNT this season.
