With the NBA’s release of the entire 2019-20 regular season schedule, let’s take a look at the San Antonio Spurs’ allotment of nationally televised games this year.
Thanks to their 22 straight postseason appearances, the San Antonio Spurs are always a staple of the NBA’s national television schedule.
Even though they have never really been the flashiest team in the league, their ability to remain consistent winners have kept them on the radar.
This year’s national television schedule features 13 Spurs games with three of them airing on ESPN, two on TNT, and eight games on NBA TV.
Here’s a look at the San Antonio Spurs’ national TV schedule for the upcoming season (all times are Central Standard Time):

The marquee matchup of this bunch is on February 3rd when the Spurs travel to take on Kawhi Leonard and the championship-favorite Clippers. However, it is surprising that none of this year’s Spurs-Clippers games will be featured on ESPN or TNT.
The Southwest Division rivalries against Dallas and Houston looked particularly juicy to the schedule makers as four of them are set to be nationally televised with three of them coming on ESPN or TNT.
Two of the Spurs’ eight games on their annual Rodeo Road Trip in February will be played in front of a national television audience. San Antonio hopes to vastly improve on that road trip after going 1-7 last season.

The Spurs aren’t on national TV as much as they have been in the past, but this team seems to relish the opportunity of being under-the-radar despite being the NBA’s most successful franchise in the last 20 years.
Nonetheless, there will be plenty of interesting nationally-televised matchups for the rest of America to see what this Spurs squad can do next season.
