The Golden State Warriors will play three preseason games at Chase Center, the Warriors’ new 18,064-seat privately financed sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, as part of a five-game schedule, the team announced today. The slate includes the first-ever game at Chase Center on Saturday, October 5 vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, which marks the first NBA game in the city of San Francisco since January 29, 1971, when the Warriors defeated the Buffalo Braves, 106-100, at the San Francisco Civic Auditorium.
Following their preseason opener on October 5, the Warriors will host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday, October 10 before traveling to Los Angeles for a pair of matchups with the Lakers at Staples Center on Monday, October 14 and Wednesday, October 16. The Warriors return home for their fifth and final preseason tilt, again facing the Lakers on Friday, October 18. The Warriors’ 2019 preseason schedule will be played entirely within the state of California for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2011 preseason.
