The Warriors open the season on the road for just the fourth time in 20 years (2012-13 & 2014-15, 2020-21), doing so in consecutive seasons for the first time since a seven-year stretch of road openers from 1989-1995. It marks the seventh time the Warriors will open a campaign against the Lakers and the first since a 125-94 home win to open the 2013-14 season (Oct. 30). The Warriors have not started a season in Los Angeles since the 1982-83 opener (Oct. 29), earning a 132-117 win over the previous year’s champion. The Warriors own a record of 33-42 (.440) all-time in season-opening games, including 14-19 on the road (.424).


Golden State will begin its third season at Chase Center, hosting the Clippers in the home opener for the second time in three years. The Warriors have lost their home opener in each of the last two seasons.


The Warriors will make their 11th Christmas Day appearance in the last 12 years and are 13-17 (.433) all-time on the holiday following last year’s road loss at Milwaukee. It marks the first time the Warriors will play a Christmas Day road game in consecutive seasons since making four-straight Christmas appearances at Portland from 1977-80.
