The Grizzlies and Clippers begin the season with a rematch of their intense playoff series from last year, headlining a busy night in the NBA.
The NBA regular season officially opened on Tuesday night, but the majority of the league's season starts on Wednesday night during a busy nine game slate. The biggest matchup is arguably the Memphis Grizzlies going to LA to take on the Los Angeles Clippers in a playoff rematch between two teams that do not care for each other.
Here is the full schedule for Oct. 31st, courtesy of SI.com.
The Pacers will try to prove last season wasn't a fluke, but start the year against a Raptors squad whose defense can make things difficult.
The Bulls begin the season of trying to keep their head above water until Derrick Rose can return, and the Kings will begin another season of trying to figure out who they are as a team.
The Mavs will try to build on their impressive opening night win over the Lakers, but have another tough test against a good Jazz team.
The Suns will begin life without Steve Nash, and host what should be a good Warriors team this season.
