Game to pay attention to: Magic vs. Heat

Orlando at Miami

This should be a brilliant night of NBA basketball, and unless you've got three costumes to get you through three nights of Halloween parties (I chickened out and won't go as a McPoyle brother tonight, so the wife is on her own ...), then you're best to stay home and try to keep up with the 12 games.

Remember, League Pass still runs for free on most cable or dish outlets, along with two crackin' ESPN games, so you should be pretty set with the set.

Orlando/Miami is, let's face it, the most intriguing and "important" as these late October games can get. All eyes will be on the Heat as they play their home opener, and the Magic are obviously rolling after winning all six of their preseason games by 28 a contest, and last night's humiliation of the Washington Wizards by 29. If you don't count the team's play in the Eastern Conference finals last year and include preseason -- two things you probably shouldn't do -- Orlando has won its last 11 contests by 28.5 points per game.

Comment away, and stay tuned to BDL for anything goofy that pops up. Stay safe this weekend, darlings.
