In Western Conference Group B action, the Houston Rockets host the New Orleans Pelicans and the Dallas Mavericks get a piece of the Los Angeles Clippers at home.

In the Eastern Conference, only three games are set to take place.

In Group A, the Philadelphia 76ers visit the Motor City to battle with the Detroit Pistons.

Then, in Group C, the Brooklyn Nets head to TD Garden for a game with the Boston Celtics.
