In total, the Clippers will play 14 sets of back-to-back games. Just as that six-game February stint is the longest road trip, the longest home stretch for the team is six games from March 8-19. Overall, the Clippers will travel 52,258 miles this season.
The Clips face every team in the Western Conference a total of four times (two home and two away), with the exception of the Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans and the Utah Jazz— all playoff teams last season–who they play three times each.
Some notable home matchups include the Golden State Warriors on Monday, November 12 and Friday, January 18, an early season bout with the San Antonio Spurs on November 15 and a first look at the LeBron James led Lakers on January 31. They also play the Lakers December 28, March 4 and April 5.
