My guess is they go to 30 divisional games in the western conference divisions (play each team 5 times) and then play 6 of the teams in the other division 3 times each and play 1 of the teams in the other division 2 times (a total of 20 games).

The math works.

Other Conference: 16 teams x 2 games (home/away) = 32 games

Own Conference: 7 teams x 3 games (home/away/home or vice versa, etc.) = 21 games

Own Division: 5 teams x 5 games = 25 (home/away/home/away/home or vice versa, etc.)
1 team x 4 games = 4 (home/away/home/away) = 4, or 29 games in total.

Combined total is 82 games.
