The Stars longest single road trip of the year is a five-game, ten-day trip through the Midwest from November 26th through December 5th.

The Stars entire 76-game schedule will be against fellow Western Conference opponents. Texas will face their South Division colleagues a total of 44 times, while the remaining 32 games come against the Midwest (18 games) and the North (14 games) Divisions. Their most frequent adversaries this season will be intra-division rivals San Antonio, Houston and Oklahoma City, all of which they will face twelve times each, while they will play Charlotte a total of eight games.
