NBA schedules for the 2015-16 season were released Wednesday and, for at least the first two weeks, the scheduling gods were good to the Clippers.
The Clippers will play their first seven games in California. They open Oct. 28 on the road at Sacramento, then host Dallas, Sacramento and Phoenix. The Clippers then play a road game Nov. 4 at defending-champion Golden State before returning home for games against Houston and Memphis.
The Clippers will play their first out-of-state game Nov. 11 at Dallas, where extra security might be needed to keep DeAndre Jordan safe from those angry Mavericks fans who are bound to let Jordan know how much he disgusts them after he backed out of a verbal agreement to sign with Dallas, only to re-sign with the Clippers. That game will be televised by ESPN.
The Clippers don’t play the Lakers until Christmas night, and that will be a Lakers home game.
