Clippers, Lakers to square off on NBA's opening night.
By JOAN NIESENFS West
The NBA announced its 2013-14 schedule on Monday evening, a slate that features games in two countries outside of the U.S and Canada – in Mexico City and London – for the first time.
As always, the slate will be a busy one in Los Angeles, and the city’s two teams will face off on opening night, Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m. at Staples Center.
The Clippers, who had a productive offseason after losing in the first round of last spring's playoffs, have high hopes for their upcoming season in a still-strong Western Conference. Highlights of their schedule include:
-- Nov. 4 vs. Houston and Dwight Howard, which will be the big man's first return to Staples Center since leaving the Lakers
