The Warriors will open their season Oct. 25, at home against the San Antonio Spurs, the NBA announced Thursday.

Other highlights of the 2016-17 schedule:

The Warriors play Christmas Day at Cleveland, then host the Cavs on MLK Day.

Kevin Durant won’t have to return to Oklahoma City until Feb. 11, the 54th game of the season. He goes again March 20.

Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut will make their first appearance at Oracle Arena as members of the Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 9.

Luke Walton brings his Los Angeles Lakers to town Nov. 23, though his first game against Steve Kerr will come three weeks earlier in L.A.

The L.A. Clippers — with Marreese Speights having joined Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan — don’t come to Oracle until Jan 28.

The Warriors’ longest trip is five games (twice). It’s the first time since 2007-08 that the Warriors have not had a trip longer than five games.

There are two homestands of five games.
