Franchise’s Sixth Season Will Tip-Off Against The Agua Caliente Clippers On November 3 in Ontario
SANTA CRUZ, CA – The NBA G League announced today that the Santa Cruz Warriors will begin the 2017-18 season, presented by Kaiser Permanente, on Friday, November 3 in Ontario, California against the Agua Caliente Clippers. New Head Coach Aaron Miles will guide the Warriors in their home opener at Kaiser Permanente Arena the following night, Saturday, November 4, against the South Bay Lakers.
In the first season of the NBA and Gatorade’s new league partnership, the Santa Cruz Warriors season tip-off will begin 10 days earlier than their 2016-17 regular season start date. Santa Cruz will play 24 home games at Kaiser Permanente Arena and will end the regular season on a three-game homestand against the Northern Arizona Suns (March 18), the Iowa Wolves (March 23) and the Reno Bighorns (March 24). Most Santa Cruz home games will tip-off at 7:00 p.m., with Sunday games starting at 6:00 p.m. All Santa Cruz Warriors games will once again air on Facebook Live via the Santa Cruz Warriors Facebook page.
The team’s longest homestand of the season is a six-game stretch over 14 days from January 17-31, immediately following the 2018 G League Showcase. The Warriors will travel on two four-game road trips throughout the regular season (December 30-January 6; March 7-15) and will participate in seven back-to-back games, including four at home at Kaiser Permanente Arena and two home-and-away sets.
Santa Cruz is slated to play all teams in the Pacific Division four times each (two home, two away), and all teams in the Midwest and Southwest Divisions three times each, totaling 40 contests against Western Conference opponents. The Warriors will play the remaining 10 games against eight Eastern Conference opponents and two matchups in the 2018 NBA G League Showcase in Toronto, which will be announced at a later date.
The team’s schedule includes inaugural matchups against the G League’s six new franchises: the Agua Caliente Clippers (Los Angeles Clippers affiliate), the Erie BayHawks (Atlanta Hawks affiliate), the Lakeland Magic (Orlando Magic affiliate), the Memphis Hustle (Memphis Grizzlies affiliate), the South Bay Lakers (Los Angeles Lakers affiliate), and the Wisconsin Herd (Milwaukee Bucks affiliate).
