TUESDAY: at Brooklyn, 6:30 p.m. (NBA TV, FSOK) — The Nets have a new home in Brooklyn, a new scorer in Joe Johnson and new hope to win the Atlantic Division.

FRIDAY: vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN, FSOK) — The season's first meeting between the two preseason favorites to win the Western Conference title.

DEC. 9 vs. Indiana, 6 p.m. (FSOK) — The Pacers have struggled without forward Danny Granger, who is expected to miss the first three months with an injured left knee.

DEC. 12: vs. New Orleans, 7 p.m. (FSOK) — The Thunder's third meeting against the Hornets in the last five weeks, but this is the first time they'll meet in OKC.

DEC. 14: vs. Sacramento, 7 p.m. (FSOK) — This is the fourth game in a five-game homestand and only the fifth game in 15 days, so Thunder should be well-rested.
