This year’s NBA schedule has finally been released, and as usual we’ll be analyzing and dissecting it from all angles over the next few days. For now, here’s the full Clippers schedule.
Go here if you’re looking for other teams’ schedules.
— Like in 2015, the Clippers will be among the very last teams to play their first game. This time, they’ll be opening in Portland on October 27th, the site of their first round loss last April. They play their home opener three days later against the Utah Jazz, and their first SEGABABA of the year Halloween night against the Phoenix Suns.
— Clippers play the Lakers on Christmas... again. For the second straight year, the Lakers get to be the home team. #Rigged
— The Clippers have 18 sets of back-to-backs, a little less than last year. One 4-in-5, same as last season. Unfortunately, they have a tough 7-in-10 stretch through Christmas into New Year’s Eve.
— 25 national TV games on ABC, ESPN, and TNT, once again at the very top of the league behind Golden State and Cleveland.
— The longest home stand is five games, with three extended road trips at six, five, and five games apiece.
