Opening Night: An Action News 5 special presentation

It's hard to believe it, but the Memphis Grizzlies are ready to tip off their second season at the Pyramid.  And for their first game, they've got a tough opponent: the Western Conference powerhouse Dallas Mavericks.

Action News 5 will get you ready for the season ahead with a special program called "Opening Night".  It airs tonight at 6:30 p.m. on WMC-TV 5.  Shane Battier, Pau Gasol, Lorenzen Wright, Michael Dickerson, and Drew Gooden want to make this season the best in franchise history, and thanks to team president Jerry West and coach Sidney Lowe, that just might happen.

After that preview program, we'll bring you the live broadcast of the game on WMC-TV 5, followed by a special post-game show.  That will mean some of your favorite NBC programs will be preempted, so be sure to have that VCR remote handy to get your West Wing fix.
