(AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies are set to open the new season on the road for two games before returning home for their opener Nov. 5 against Charlotte.

The NBA released schedules for the 2011-12 season Tuesday, even though owners have locked out players after the labor agreement expired.

Memphis and the Grizzlies are eager to capitalize on the team's stunning run to the Western Conference semifinals before losing to Oklahoma City in seven games.

The Grizzlies are scheduled to start the season Nov. 2 at the Los Angeles Clippers with a visit to Utah before finally returning to Memphis for their home opener.

The champion Mavericks visit Memphis on Nov. 16, while the Lakers visit Nov. 22 and March 13. Memphis hosts Miami on Dec. 30.
