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

West team plays 16 East teams home/away for 32. West plays other out of division but in conference 3x per team (21). 29 GP within division.

East teams would home-away vs 14 West teams (28), 3x each vs out of division but in conference opponents (24) and 30 games within division.
