The Schedule is Out and So Am I

Posted By on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 2:46 PM

The NBA released its schedule today. You can check out the Grizzlies schedule here.

Nothing too surprising: Back-to-back sets have gone from 22 last season to 20 this season. Friday/Saturday homes games (which help attendance) have remained even at 20. There are more long road trips this season, including two five-game road swings in the first month, and fewer long home stands.

The Grizzlies open the season Wednesday, October 28th with a home game against the Detroit Pistons. The Martin Luther King Day match-up — again the lone nationally televised game — is Monday, January 18th against the Phoenix Suns.

On a generally unrelated note, I'm heading out in the morning for vacation, a lengthy and much-anticipated family road trip in which internet access will be both intermittent and unwanted. If there's major news on the Griz front and I have the time and opportunity, I might chime in. But, for the most part, this space will be dormant for the next week and a half.
