Lakers schedule release: Full slate of games for LA's 2019-20 season

NBA null Basketball

The Lakers missed out on Kawhi Leonard in free agency, but they will still face sky-high expectations coming into the 2019-20 season.

With LeBron James and Anthony Davis running the show, the Lakers are a serious title contender. It won't be an easy road ahead, though, as Western Conference teams like the Clippers, Jazz, Nuggets and Rockets are also hoping to earn a trip to the 2019 NBA Finals.

Opening Night, Christmas Day, star return games for 2019-20 season

The road to the playoffs begins in Los Angeles where the Lakers will be the "road" team against the Clippers at Staples Center on Opening Night (Oct. 22). Lakers fans can check out the full 82-game schedule below.
