Ready for basketball season to start again? Well it's getting pretty close. On Tuesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers released their preseason schedule of games for the 2013-14 NBA season. The schedule consists of eight games in total with the first game being played on October 8th, 2013. Three of the games will be played at Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland.
The Cavaliers will also play a preseason game in Canton, where the Canton Charge have their home games. Another game will be played in Cincinnati and yet another in Columbus. People complained about not being able to watch preseason games last year and Dan Gilbert responded on Twitter saying that they would make sure that they are all televised this year. Hopefully he keeps that promise and you'll be able to watch all eight preseason games on Fox Sports Ohio.
