LeBron James and the Lakers open their season on October 18 on the road against the Blazers, per league sources.


Wow I don’t ever recall the Lakers opening there season on the road, playing @ Portland will be a challenge especially considering our struggles against them in recent years.


It happened 5 in a row from 1988/89-1992/93 and then only 4x in all that time since.

our last road opener was @ Denver in 06, so this is pretty rare

Anyone ever gone to a Lakers-Kings game in Sac? If so, what are the prices like? Can't find sale prices anywhere..

(I live in the Bay Area and obviously can't afford to pay $1k to go to a Warriors-LAkers game)

Happy that we only play at Denver ONCE, and the Nuggets 3 times overall. I think they match up well against the Lakers.

Also happy that the Thunder also play us 3 times, I'm going to get pretty tired of the PG-non-reunion talk pretty quickly.

Mavs & Grizzlies 3 times, which is a bummer cuz I consider them winnable games, would've wanted one more against them. Would've preferred the Rockets 3 times. Ah well.

I have: at the old arco arena as well as the new Golden 1 center..
I do go for the dubs/lakers games.. been doing that forever

Man the new sacramento arena is amazing! Tickets are also decent (get em early: or get them from kings fans).. Laker games have a non trivial laker presence : mostly from bay area.. you can see all the laker fans heading there to sacramento on the capitol corridor the day of..

That is surprising. At the same time I really don't have much interest in watching a Warriors game when they aren't facing a contender. They are so overpowered that I assume they will blow out everyone that isn't a contender.

Rondo pretty much owns Portland after last postseason. And they have nobody who can slow down LBJ.
If the young guys just play moderately well, I expect a W.

First 3 weeks:

@POR
HOU
SAS
@PHX
DEN
@SAS
@MIN
DAL
@POR
TOR
MIN

Get ready for the national media to write us off quickly, because that looks like a tough stretch to me for a team that just had >50% turnover. It does ease up later in November and December, though.

On the flip side, I saw a lot of beatable teams after the All-Star break so maybe it will work out for us better this way?

Every game was winnable last year with a puppy squad. We now have Lebron James, more experienced young core and more vets. Every game is more winnable than ever.

For the second straight season, the Lakers play 13 back to backs. A few teams play only 12, while some play 16. Average is 13.9, down from 14.4 last season. Of those 13 B2B’s, 2 include no travel at all (one home/home, the other home/Clippers).

Not surprised at the number of national TV games we have, without LeBron we had a bunch last season and now with Bron we're must see TV.

I agree, we will finally end the losing drought against the Blazers.
