The Phoenix Suns announced today that the Wednesday Oct. 22 preseason game against the Clippers, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, will be televised live on ESPN at 7:30pm AZ time.
Only a few nationally televised preseason games have been announced thus far, with more sure to follow. The others I have been able to verify are the Cavaliers vs the Miami Heat on Oct. 11th from Rio De Jinero, Brazil (ESPN News), and the Heat vs. the Houston Rockets at 6pm (AZ) on Oct. 21st (TNT).
Unless another preseason game is announced nationally, all other Suns games will be covered locally on 98.7 FM -- with Al McCoy's sonorous, baritone voice painting pictures of high-flying dunks and "sha-zams" raining down from beyond the arc.
