Here's a simple, objective breakdown of the Grizzlies schedule for next season.

The beginning before the beginning. We still don't 100% know what kind of roster the Grizzlies will be fielding next season, but now we know precisely where and when that roster will be playing.

  • Season Opener: October 30th at San Antonio
  • Home Opener: November 1st vs Detroit
  • Longest Homestand: (6) games - November 30th to December 11th
  • Longest Road Trip: (5) games - March 26th to April 2nd
  • National TV Appearances: 13 - 1 TNT, 5 ESPN, 7 NBATV

Month Home Games Road Games Total
October 0 1 1
November 8 7 15
December 10 4 14
January 7 8 15
February 6 6 12
March 6 11 17
April 4 4 8

Noteworthy:

  • Rudy Gay return game - Nov 13th in Memphis
  • OJ Mayo return game - Feb 1st
  • Short schedule Western Conference teams (3 instead of 4 games) - Clippers, Blazers, Jazz, Kings
  • 18 back-to-backs
  • Fewer nationally televised games than last year after making WCF
  • First time Derrick Rose will potentially play in Memphis since forever ago - Dec 30th

There's a lot of info to take in right now. I will update the notes as tidbits become relevant and available.

One thing is for certain: we are still having to earn the league's respect after getting fewer national games following a conference finals appearance. (Grrrr...)
