As we have calculated, that makes 82 games, sure, but it's impossible for the in division matrix to work out that way.
Actually, it's pretty easy to do it, although not in the way described entirely. One team in each division in the West will play two of their opponents in the division four times. For both of those opponents, that team is the one they play 4 against. The team that gets two intradivision opponents 4 times also gets one extra game against the team in the other division in the same circumstance.

For example.
