What was once a triple-header has evolved into a quintuple-header to open the NBA season on Christmas. Right now, the known games are the Celtics at the Knicks, the Heat at the Mavericks and the Bulls at the Lakers. Add Blake Griffin and the Clippers heading to Oracle Arena against the Warriors to that list as well, according to InsideBayArea.com.

The set of games is to include a 10:30 p.m. ET West Coast game and that would presumably be it. The slots are (all Eastern), noon, 2:30, 5:00, 8:00 and 10:30. Celtics-Knicks will be the noon game and I'd imagine the Heat and Mavs would be the 2:30 slot. With the Warriors anchoring at the 10:30, that leaves the Lakers and Bulls to play at either 5:00 or 8:00.

Not surprising the league woudl lean on the Warriors and Clippers for this game. You've got Griffin, the great Warrior crowd, the debut of Mark Jackson coaching Golden State and lots of offense from Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis. Easy choice.

Question is what the other game would be. Most are speculating that it will be Thunder versus Grizzlies, but that's not set in stone yet.

Look for the full, revised NBA schedule to come out sometime next week.

Easy choice if you assume that everyone is watching the other games and you want to put on something skipable.
