Golden State Warriors 2020 NBA regular season schedule details

Reports indicate the Dubs will play against each Western Conference team three times.

The return of Golden State Warriors basketball is almost here! The NBA released its tentative calendar for the 2020-21 season and how each team’s schedule breaks down.

As expected, each team will play 72 games, with 42 of those against teams from the same conference and 30 non-conference matchups. The league will reportedly release the full schedule details in two installments, with the NBA hoping to make the first portion public around the beginning of training camp. The second portion will come out towards the end of the first half of games just in case the league has to reschedule games because of COVID-19 protocols.

The NBA will partially continue its format from the bubble and hold a play-in tournament to determine the bottom two playoff seeds in each conference. Similar to the format for the 2020 season, teams will be ranked on winning percentage. The teams with the seventh-highest and eighth-highest winning percentage will have to win one game to get into the postseason, while the teams with the ninth-highest and 10th-highest winning percentage will have to win twice to get in.

The two victorious teams will then play one another to determine who gets the seventh and eighth seeds.

Here is the tentative calendar for the season:

Dec. 11-19 (Pre-season games)
Dec. 4 - March 4 (first half of regular season)
March 5-10 (All-Star break)
March 11 - May 16 (second half of the regular season)
March 18-21 (play-in tournament)
March 22 - July 22 (NBA Playoffs)

The Dubs will play a home-and-away against the Eastern Conference squads, here is the breakdown of their schedule against teams from the West.

Pacific Division: Two home games, one road game against the L.A. Clippers and Sacramento Kings
One home game, two road games against the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns.

Golden State will play two home games and one road games against the teams from the Northwest Division.(Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz)

The Warriors will play one home game and two road games against the Southwest Division squads. (Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, San Antonio Spurs)

This schedule format is advantageous for the Western Conference squads since they will play a higher percentage of games against the East than they would under normal circumstances. The Eastern Conference doesn’t have the depth of the West in terms of quality teams.

It’s going to be a blood bath between the Warriors, Lakers, Clippers and Suns just to clinch the Pacific Division, never mind winning the conference.

With the Dubs holding the No. 2 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, plus Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green expected to be ready to go for the season-opener, these are exciting times for Warriors fans.

What do you think about the NBA’s tentative plans for the schedule?
