The Grizzlies travel to Oklahoma City on Nov. 7, 2014 to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in a rematch of their spectacular first round playoff matchup.

The Grizzlies host the defending champion San Antonio Spurs on Dec. 5, 2014 in a great Friday night matchup. The Spurs were 4-0 against the Grizzlies in 2013-14, and are essentially the same team as last season. This has always been an interesting matchup and a good litmus test for the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies travel to Cleveland to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Dec. 21, 2014 in a Sunday afternoon matchup. Many pundits consider the Eastern Conference to be well below the Western Conference, so it will be interesting to see how a top-eight seed team like the Grizzlies fare against one of, if not the Eastern Conference’s best.

This game could be crucial in terms of seeding when the Grizzlies travel to play the Dallas Mavericks on Mar. 20, 2015. The Dirk Nowitzki led Mavericks were 3-1 against the Grizzlies last season, but this one should be a thriller.

The Grizzlies end their season with a big West Coast road trip, and no game is bigger or could mean more to the Grizzlies' season than their Saturday matchup with Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers on Apr. 11, 2015. This should be a big time battle that’s must-see TV.
