The San Antonio Spurs (0-0) will kick off their season opener tonight in San Antonio as they host the Memphis Grizzlies (0-0).
The Spurs will be looking for redemption this new season after losing in the NBA Finals in Game 7 to the Heat. With new additions such as Marco Belinelli, and Jeff Ayres, the Spurs will look to once again capture title No. 5.
The Grizzlies remained relatively in tact only adding former player Mike Miller, Kosta Koufos from Denver and Nick Calathes. Memphis still boasts a formidable duo in the paint - Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph - and guard Mike Conley rounds out the team's core. New head coach Dave Joerger will do what it takes to ensure Memphis remains one of the best in the West.
And as the Spurs take their first steps back to the NBA Finals, here are five things to watch for during tonight's game.
