Los Angeles Lakers start season at Clippers: Full 2019-20 schedule

Richard Jefferson Le Bron James

The team's first home game at TD Garden will take place two days later, when they take on the defending champion Toronto Raptors.

The Clippers have 13 back-to-backs this season, which is one fewer than last season (14).

In March, the difficulty ramps back up - the Clippers open the month with games against Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Houston, Los Angeles, Golden State, Brooklyn and New Orleans.

Six of the team's final ten games of the season will be both at home and against playoff teams from last season, including the Portland Trail Blazers on March 27, Orlando Magic on April 3, Milwaukee Bucks on April 5, and Indiana Pacers on April 8. It will be the Lakers' 21st consecutive season playing on Christmas Day.

The champs will be busiest on Wednesdays (18 games) and Sundays (14) and though the number of back-to-back contests have been reduced by the National Basketball Association for the fifth consecutive year as a whole (from an average of 13.3 to an average of 12.4), Toronto will actually play 13, up one from 2018-19. Seven of those back-to-backs will be entirely on the road. The league will also go all out on MLK Day in January, as 28 of the 30 teams will be in action, including four nationally-televised games over the course of the day.

Mets rally again, top Nationals for eighth straight win
Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (mild strain in upper back) threw a 36-pitch bullpen at almost full effort and came out feeling well. The under is also 4-0 in DeSclafani's last four starts versus the Nationals and is 4-1 in his last fie road starts overall.

The NBA is clearly banking on those storylines to draw viewers.

With a healthy Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and supporting cast, the LA Clippers should figure to be a lock for a top-four seed in the Western Conference this year. How will the Warriors, without Kevin Durant and with D'Angelo Russell, mesh? November 27 - Mississauga's R.J. Barrett plays first game at home with New York Knicks. December 11 - Kawhi returns to Canada to collect his ring. Immediately after taking on Toronto in Boston, the Celtics will travel to NY for their first game against the Knicks.

A couple of weeks after the All-Star break, the Warriors will play a grueling eight-game stretch that includes two matchups against their 2019 Finals foe.

Yet despite the stiff competition, unless there is an unforeseen setback, the Warriors will be at their best around this time as many expect Klay Thompson to be returning from his ACL injury around this stretch.
