Thunder announces preseaon schedule

by Darnell Mayberry Published: August 15, 2013

Game for game, the Oklahoma City Thunder’s preseason schedule is more grueling than its regular season schedule.

OKC will play seven exhibition games in six cities and three countries this October, starting with a pair of games in Europe as part of the NBA Global Games 2013.

Though the Thunder technically is scheduled to play four home games, only two will actually be played inside Chesapeake Energy Arena. One will be played in Wichita, Kan., and another will be the annual preseason trip to Tulsa.

Here is the entire seven-game slate.

Oct. 5     Fenerbahce Ulker     Istanbul, Turkey                 8 a.m.

Oct. 8     Philadelphia                Manchester, England        2 p.m.

Oct. 15   Denver                          Oklahoma City                      7 p.m.
