The Los Angeles Clippers release their season schedule

Basketball is here!

On Monday, the Clippers released the full schedule for the 2017-2018 season.

Not only is this exciting because it means basketball is happening soon, but the Clippers get to debut the new Clippers faces and fresh new jerseys.

The game that we all have circled on our calendar will be the first game against the Houston Rockets. On December 22nd, the Clippers will visit Houston and Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams, and Montrezl Harrell will return to their old home.

More dramatic, though, will be CP3’s return to Staples on January 15th.

Some early games to watch out for:

  1. The October 19th opener against the Lakers: will the rivalry be renewed with this new Lakers era?
  2. October 30th at home versus the Warriors: Can the Clippers compete with the NBA champions?
  3. November 11th in Oklahoma City: Will the Patrick Beverley/Russell Westbrook feud ramp up with Bev’s new team and Westbrook’s new teammate Paul George?

Though they won’t be playing on Christmas this year, they will have 19 games televised nationally. As always, you can catch all of the Clippers action on FOX Sports West Prime Ticket and FOX Sports Go.
