The 2022-23 NBA schedule will once again use a 30-team format (two conferences of 15 teams each, with three five-team divisions within each conference) in which teams will play each opponent within their division four times, while playing six of the remaining 10 teams in their conference four times, and the four remaining teams in their conference only three times. Teams will also play all 15 opponents outside of their conference two times each. In 2022-23, the Warriors will play only three games against the following Western Conference opponents: Dallas (one at home, two away), Denver (one at home, two away), San Antonio (two at home, one away) and Utah (two at home, one away).
