The Clippers’ preseason plans are set: According to a release from the NBA, they’ll have four games scheduled in early October, starting with two at Staples Center, including an Oct. 4 contest against the Denver Nuggets and another on Oct. 6 against the Sacramento Kings. Both games tip off at 7:30 p.m.
The Clippers also will travel to Dallas to take on the Mavericks on Oct. 8 at American Airlines Center (for a game starting at 5:30 p.m.).
They’ll close out the preseason with a game against former Clipper Patrick Beverley and the Minnesota Timberwolves at Toyota Arena in Ontario, where the Agua Caliente Clippers – the team’s G League affiliate – play their home games.
Last season, the Clippers lost all three of their preseason games (including two against the Lakers) before going 47-25 in the regular season, claiming the fourth seed and reaching the Western Conference finals for the first time in franchise history.
The Clippers begin regular-season play on Oct. 21 at Golden State. Their home opener is scheduled for Oct. 23 vs. Memphis.
The 2021 NBA preseason schedule will tip off on Sunday, Oct. 3 and conclude on Friday, Oct. 15.
