Continuing Clipperholics’ analysis of the LA Clippers’ 2017-18 season schedule, we look at the team’s December slate of games.
In December, the Clippers will play 15 games. 8 of these games are on the road including a 3-game swing out east. The remaining 7 games are at Staples Center.
Of course, it is impossible to accurately predict roster fluctuation this far ahead, so we are assuming a full bill of health (ha!).
There are three back-to-backs throughout the month, all of which are away from home. The first pair see the Clippers play in Dallas on the 2nd and in Minneapolis the following night. On the 15th and 16th the Clippers play in the nation’s capital and South Beach respectively. Finally, the Clippers lead in to Christmas with games in Houston and Memphis. The good news is that these are not particularly long flights, there are no more 4-in-5’s, and there isn’t a super-lengthy road trip in the month.
