I've done some math to extrapolate things, and the total matrix looks like this:

Two games against out-of-conference teams - 32 total games
Three games against in-conference, but out of division teams - 21 total games
Five games against 5/6 in-division teams, four games against remaining team - 29 total games
Except you can't have an odd number of teams playing an odd number of games against themselves. Chances are it is 5 games within your division, 3 within your conference and 2 against the East and 1 of the teams from the other in-conference division.
