According to Brad Turner of the L.A. Times, the Clippers and Lakers will open their seasons against each other on October 19th in a Lakers home game at STAPLES Center. The two will play on opening night in the nation’s first look at the post-CP3 Clippers and the beginning of the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball era.

The Clippers’ home schedule has already been leaked on Ticketmaster, but this is the first road game that we’ve heard about. The Clippers’ first home game is October 23rd, so it seems likely that they will play a road game against a nearby team on the 21st before returning to Los Angeles for their home opener against the Phoenix Suns.
