Best games of 2014-15 NBA schedule

Do you like seeing basketball teams score lots of baskets? Then this will be a fun game for you to watch.

Nov. 4: Oklahoma City Thunder at Toronto Raptors

Kevin Durant visits Toronto. How much will Drake get fined this time?

Nov. 4: Charlotte Hornets at New Orleans Pelicans

I'm already so confused.

Nov. 7: Memphis Grizzlies at Oklahoma City Thunder

The first meeting since last season's ridiculously ridiculous seven-game first-round series. Two things we can be pretty confident in: (1) The game will go to overtime and (2) Steven Adams will make Zach Randolph very mad.

Nov. 7: New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets

I suppose this is still a reasonably big deal, but the Knicks-Nets rivalry hasn't really taken off the way it was expected to. Part of the problem has been the lack of importance of the games. Both teams could be kind of decent this season -- maybe -- so there's hope that this game establishes a good tone for the other three.

Nov. 12: Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (in Mexico City)

Take 2 for the NBA in Mexico City. Last season the Spurs and Wolves tried to play a game in Mexico's capital, only to have it postponed because of an electrical fire in the building. But that's fixed now -- probably!

Nov. 16: Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder

Patrick Beverley and Russell Westbrook playing hateful basketball against each other is always high entertainment. Oh, and that whole James Harden-versus-his-old-team-thing is still pretty interesting, too.

Nov. 19: Charlotte Hornets at Indiana Pacers

Lance Stephenson is back in Indianapolis and we can only hope he runs into the stands and blows in Larry Bird's ear after dropping a triple-double.

Nov. 19: Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets

Jason Kidd returns to Brooklyn. If Mikhail Prokhorov doesn't fly in for this one, I'm going to be pretty disappointed.

Nov. 21: Cleveland Cavaliers at Washington Wizards

Once upon a time in the days of Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes, this was one of the best rivalries in the league. It's lost some of the buzz, but with both teams now contenders in the Eastern Conference, the general dislike could be resurrected.

Nov. 26: Milwaukee Bucks at Minnesota Timberwolves

The No. 1 pick against the No. 2 pick. On draft night, we thought the Andrew Wiggins- Jabari Parker matchup would've been in December against the Cavs, but here it is with a slight change in costume.

Dec. 8: Golden State Warriors at Minnesota Timberwolves

You just know Klay Thompson is going to score 54 points on 18-of-21 shooting from 3, and Flip Saunders will cry softly with a clipboard held over his face while Steve Kerr holds out his arms with a "You see now?" gesture.

Dec. 11: Cleveland Cavaliers at Oklahoma City Thunder

Pretty simple: LeBron vs. Durant.

(Interesting sidenote: Durant is 0-5 against LeBron the Cavalier, losing by an average of 15.2 points.)
