The Phoenix Suns announced their 2012-13 regular season television schedule Wednesday, and it will allow fans to follow all 82 regular season games on FOX Sports Arizona or one of the NBA’s national broadcasts.
Starting with the home opener on October 31 against the Golden State Warriors, FOX Sports Arizona and FOX Sports Arizona Plus will televise a combined 80 regular season games. Some of the matchups include games against the defending champion Miami Heat and Steve Nash’s first game back at the U.S. Airways Center as a visitor after playing eight seasons in the Valley. The Suns will appear on national television a total of five games this season, appearing on TNT twice, NBA TV twice and ESPN once.
Each broadcast will feature a pregame and halftime report as well as the “Suns Live, presented by CenturyLink” following each telecast.
Suns fans will also be able to hear recently hired play-by-play announcer Steve Albert, who will be joining color analyst Eddie Johnson during broadcasts on FOX Sports Arizona.
For the 45th straight season, Suns fans following the games on the radio will tune into the teams flagship station Arizona Sports 620 and hear the “voice of the Suns,” Al McCoy calling play-by-play and Tim Kempton adding analysis.
