The Clippers are set to appear in 32 nationally televised games, the highest number in franchise history.
Kobe, Nash and LAL catch a break in having only 16 back to backs this season, down from 19 last year. Most teams will have more.
The closest we'll get to a Clippers-Lakers playoff series this season is April 5-7, a home and home over three days at Staples Center.

Say what you want about the Lakers but they're still featured on Opening Night and Christmas Night.
Trio of strong games to open the season at Staples Center. Rockets @ Lakers 10/28 Thunder @ Clippers 10/30 Clippers @ Lakers 10/31
Get ready Lakers fans. Season begins with double dose of hate -- Rockets followed by Clippers
Clippers are home for the holidays - -most of them anyway. Lakers (Halloween), OKC (Christmas), Knicks (New Year's Eve).
Lakers open the season against the Rockets and the Clippers. Which team is hated more by Lakers fans?
Lakers will open the season against the Rockets but will host the Clippers on Halloween.
We’ll be on @TakeTwo (@kpcc) talking Ballmer, Shelly Sterling, Selig’s successor and Drake getting the Raps in trouble. 9:40am PT.
I predicted last night the Lakers would open the season against the Rockets. My next prediction? Kobe scores 25 and LA wins.
Hearing the Clippers will open regular season at home vs. OKC on Oct. 30. Lakers home opener will be Oct. 31 against the Clippers.
Or the Clippers.
Schedules come out tomorrow at 3 PM PST, but probably before. I'm predicting Lakers open the new season at home against the Rockets.
Thunder and lightning!!!
MT@BoweryBoys: Bacall, Bogart risked their careers in 1947 by opposing Joe McCarthy's Red Scare Senate hearings: http://t.co/rM62voTJar
Tired isn't even the word...
Lakers picked by ESPN to finish 12th in West again. And that should make Kobe mad again. Hey, it's 2 spots higher than they finished in '14
Robert Sacre had 13 points and 11 rebounds in Canada's win yesterday, so I'm optimistic the Lakers will win more than 30 games this year.
Greenville for some grub!
Clippers rally would have been better this weekend but the Sparks play Friday and SummerSlam takes over Staples Center this weekend.
For the 2014-15 Lakers, how many games will they win? RT for OVER 30 wins. FAV for UNDER 30 wins. http://t.co/sJYRxJmzTW
However, attorneys for Donald and Shelly have been talking all day about a settlement between them
Donald Sterling did end up a writ of mandate after the judge filed his written order to complete the Clippers sale today
The sale of the Clippers officially closed at 9am.
Steve Ballmer's lawyer, Adam Streisand: "One small step for us, one giant leap for Clippers fans."
When being compared to Donald Sterling does anyone really care that Steve Ballmer was wrong about the iPhone and Google?
Someone just replied to a tweet I had 12 months ago. I'm lucky if I remember what I tweeted 12 minutes ago.
When the Clippers stop selling out and start playing in an outdated arena and training facility we can talk about relocation. Until then...
The Buffalo Braves became the Clippers when they moved to San Diego in 1978, 3 years later Donald Sterling bought them and moved them to LA.
Yoga is difficult every time haha
And if the Clippers do win a title and Donald Sterling is still alive, I'm guessing one of the three rings Shelly gets is going to him.
Shelly Sterling and a friend will sit courtside while 10 more sit in Section 101 or 111. All 12 get passes to media room and clubs/lounges.
Really wish the end of the Donald Sterling era meant the end of Sterling's cronies in the media room but it looks like that's not the case.
Shelly Sterling had joked in the court that the perks she will get from Steve Ballmer were better than what Donald gave her as the owner.
In addition the title of "Owner Emeritus," Shelly Sterling also gets the title of "Clipper's Number 1 Fan" for the rest of her life. Really.
Shelly Sterling will still have a large and visible presence with the Clippers after this deal. http://t.co/UKqFVTSPF1
Shelly Sterling: "I am confident that Steve will bring the city a championship in the very near future. I cannot wait for the new season"
Shelly: "I am thrilled that the Clippers now have such a wonderful new owner. I am happy for the team, the fans, the sponsors and the city."
