Breaking Down the Warriors 2022-23 Schedule

Established 1946 | 7-time NBA Champions

The Warriors will tip-off the 2022-23 season at Chase Center with an Opening Night matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers on October 18 (7 p.m., TNT). The Dubs are set to play four of their first five matchups of the 2022-23 campaign on Warriors Ground.

As the reigning NBA champions prepare for the upcoming season, here are a few observations and notes on the Warriors’ 2022-23 slate:

  • Golden State is scheduled to make 30 national TV appearances during the 2022-23 regular season, the sixth time in the last seven seasons the team will be featured in 30-or-more national TV games (TNT – 12, ESPN – 12 and ABC – 6). In addition, the Warriors will make 10 appearances on NBA TV. In 2021-22, the Warriors appeared a franchise-record 33 times on national TV.
  • The Warriors will receive their 2022 NBA Championship rings on October 18 vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, opening at home for the first time since 2019, the inaugural season of Chase Center. This marks the second consecutive season in which the two teams begin the season against each other – last season the Warriors earned a 121-114 win over the Lakers on October 19, 2021, at Staples Center.
  • The Warriors have recorded 430 consecutive sellouts, in both the regular season and playoffs.
  • All weekday home games during the 2022-23 regular season will tip off at 7 p.m. All Saturday and Sunday home games will have a start time of 5:30 p.m., except for two nationally-televised games – 5 p.m. on Sunday, Christmas Day vs. the Memphis Grizzlies on ABC and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 26 with the Minnesota Timberwolves on ESPN. Fifty-four percent (22 of the 41 home games) of the Warriors’ home games will be played on the weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
  • The Warriors’ longest homestand is an eight-game stretch from December 25-January 10, which matches the longest homestand in franchise history – last season (October 28-November 12, 2021) and in 2010-11 (January 24-February 9, 2011).
  • The Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies will matchup on December 25, Golden State’s 11th-consecutive appearance on the holiday and 12th Christmas Day game in the last 13 years. The two teams faced off in the 2022 Western Conference Semifinals, with the Warriors winning in six games.
  • The team will have four road trips of five-or-more games during the 2022-23 season - October 29-November 4 (five games), December 13-21 (six games), January 13-20 (five games) and March 15-22 (five games). The last time the Warriors played at least five consecutive road games at least four times in a single season was in 1976-77. The Warriors had two five-game trips last season, just one five-game road trip during the 2020-21 season and were scheduled to have two during the 2019-20 season.
  • The Warriors will play two games against all Eastern Conference teams and four games against all Western Conference foes with the exception of four teams that they’ll meet only three times: Dallas (one at home, two away), Denver (one at home, two away), San Antonio (two at home, one away) and Utah (two at home, one away).
  • Throughout the course of the season, the Warriors will travel an estimated total distance of 47,000 miles.
  • Golden State is scheduled to play 15 back-to-back sets, marking the third-straight season with that many back-to-backs. Of the 15 back-to-back seats, three are home-home matchups on December 2-3, December 27-28 and March 2-3. The Warriors have nine sets of away-away back-to-backs, two sets of away/home and one home/away set in 2022-23.   
  • The Warriors will open season with four of its first five games at home, three against Pacific Division rivals. Golden State concludes the 2022-23 regular season playing three of its last four games on the road. 
  • Golden State will face the Washington Wizards in the nation’s capital on January 16, 2023, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This will mark the 10th time in the last 11 years the Warriors play on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, missing only 2022 in that span.
  • Games by day of the week: Monday – 11, Tuesday – 13, Wednesday – 12, Thursday – 7, Friday – 17, Saturday – 8, Sunday – 14. 
  • Games by month: October – 7, November – 15, December – 15, January – 13, February – 12, March – 16, April – 4.
