The Indiana Pacers tip off their preseason schedule in Memphis tonight for the first of three games in four days. The Grizzlies boast a talented young team that gave the Pacers fits last year and certainly a great early test for this Pacers team with a lot of familiar faces but a whole new feel.

Mike Wells offers a few things to look for (or listen for as it may be) which tonight doesn't include T.J. Ford and Tyler Hansbrough. We knew Ford was out with the hammy, but Wells reports that Hansbrough will sit out the preseason opener as well.

For a Memphis perspective, check out Straight Outta Vancouver and 3 Shades of Blue.

Don't forget, the Pacers will be heard this year on WIBC 93.1 FM instead of the usual 1070AM, so pull up the nearest radio or audio stream an enjoy Mark Boyle and Slick Leonard call the game and of course, leave your thoughts and observations in the comments.
