The Cavaliers are coming off an opening night loss to the Chicago Bulls in which their bench was nearly nonexistent. The Grizzlies will probably still struggle to contain LeBron James, but we should see a fresh Mike Conley have his way with Mo Williams.

The big story, personnel-wise in Memphis, will of course be Dave Joerger's use of Jeff Green and the wing players. We still don't really know what that rotation will look like. If I were going to guess I'd go with Green getting the start, getting pulled early if he's ineffective, and possibly coming off the bench in the 2nd half. We saw that exact sequence during the preseason, and since Dave Joerger says he's ready to take the lineup in a game-to-game approach, there's no reason to think he won't try to keep things fluid during over the course of a single game too.

I don't even care what it looks like at this point ... basketball is back!!
