The 2023-24 NBA season for the Clippers commences on October 25 with a home game against Portland, and they will mainly remain in Los Angeles during the subsequent week. Among their initial five games, four will take place at the Crypto.com Arena. This includes a game against the Lakers on November 1, which is technically a Clippers' road game. This home-heavy start sets the stage for a regular-season schedule that appears to be more lenient compared to recent years. The schedule outlines matchups for 80 out of the 82 total games. The remaining two games will depend on the Clippers' performance in the NBA's inaugural in-season tournament. Their progress in this tournament will determine whether those dates will be part of the knockout round or filled by facing two other teams that also did not advance beyond the group stage.
