SAN FRANCISCO—The NBA Champions Golden State Warriors will tip-off their preseason schedule by hosting the Toronto Raptors at the SAP Center in San Jose on Monday, October 5, according to an announcement made by the team on Wednesday, September 2.

After a short offseason, the championship squad minus David Lee will suit up and hit the court just 111 days after winning the Larry O’Brien trophy.

The first 10,000 fans in attendance will receive a one-of-a-kind San Jose Sharks Edition Stephen Curry Bobblehead that features the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player wearing a Sharks sweater in support of the Bay Area’s National Hockey League team.

Tickets for the game in San Jose will be available starting Tuesday, September 1 with a series of exclusive presale events, including opportunities for Warriors and Sharks season ticket holders, as well as Warriors Insiders.

Tickets went on sale to the general public on September 2, beginning at 4:00 p.m., on and by calling 888-GSW-HOOP.

Following the preseason opener, the Warriors travel to Portland to face the Trail Blazers on Thursday, October 8, before returning to Oracle Arena for the first time since winning the 2015 NBA Championship for a pair of home games. On Tuesday, October 13, the Warriors host the Denver Nuggets and two nights later, on Thursday, October 15, Golden State welcomes the Houston Rockets for a match-up between James Harden and Co.

The Warriors end their seven-game preseason schedule with a trip to Southern California for games against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego on Saturday, October 17; the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center on Tuesday, October 20; and the Lakers again at the Honda Center in Anaheim on Thursday, October 22.

Golden State is looking for a repeat after recently winning their first NBA championship since 1970. Re-signing versatile forward Draymond Green to a multi-year contract, trading for a role player like Jason Thompson and drafting a young prospect like Kevon Looney could put them right in line to go back-to-back.
