Sacramento starts the season with a two-game homestand, against Portland and then the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, Oct. 22. They then head to the Bay Area for their first road game. Four of the team’s first five games are at home. Three of the Kings’ first 12 opponents are the Golden State Warriors.

From the end of January through early February, the Kings will be on their longest road trip, playing seven games in five cities. Before they hit the road though, the Kings pop up on ESPN for their only nationally televised game on Jan. 23, against the Houston Rockets.

The Kings end the season with a home game against the Warriors on April 7 and play their final regular season game in Denver on April 9.
