Three takeaways from the release of the Lakers’ 2022-23 schedule

On Wednesday, the NBA released the schedule for the upcoming season, which gave Los Angeles Lakers fans a glimpse at how things could go in the coming months.

How a team’s schedule is arranged may not matter as much in the NBA as it does in the NFL, but there are still quirks and patterns that can affect a team’s record and seeding.

Nov. 9 will bring another game versus the Clippers, while the Brooklyn Nets will be in town on Nov. 13.

Unlike last season, when the early weeks of the season were loaded with easier, winnable games, the Lakers will be challenged early and often.

The one saving grace: most of the aforementioned games will be at Crypto.com Arena.

The Lakers will have four road trips of at least five games each

Yes, you read that right: the Lakers will have four road trips that will each consist of at least five games.

The first comes in early December and will pit them against the Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards, Cavs, Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons.
