The NBA has released the full schedule for the 2015/16 season. The Spurs are opening the season against the Oklahoma City Thunder on October 28. The game will be broadcast by ESPN. They will close it against the Mavericks on April 13 in Dallas.

The Spurs will have 17 back-to-backs, fewer than the 21 they had last season. There were discussions in the league's office about fixing the schedule to prevent teams from playing too many games in a short period of time. There has been some progress this year on that area, especially to avoid four games in five games, which the Spurs won't have to play next season.

The Rodeo Road Trip will take place between February 9 and February 27 and will be interrupted by the All-Star break. The impact the RRT has on the Spurs' season is often overrated but this year it could genuinely be important. There will be an adjustment period for the newcomers as well as the returning players and being on the road together could help them develop the chemistry they will need to go far into the playoffs.

LaMarcus Aldridge will face his old team for the first time on November 11. The Trail Blazers have always given the Spurs fits at home. Maybe now that will change. David West will go back to Indiana on March 7 but that night won't be nearly as emotionally charged as Aldridge's return to Portland.

The first matchup with the reigning champs the Warriors will be on January 25 in Oakland. The Spurs will face LeBron James and the Eastern champions the Cavaliers on January 14 in San Antonio.

The Spurs will have 21 nationally televised games. ESPN and TNT will broadcast nine each and ABC the remaining three. NBATV will broadcast another nine games. You can check the TV schedule here.
