1 FRESNO STATE BULL­DOGS VS. UNLV REBELS HOME­COM­ING GAME > OCT. 10

De­spite los­ing start­ing quar­ter­back Derrick Carr to the NFL, the Bull­dogs started the sea­son hope­ful but got off on the wrong foot after be­ing dis­mem­bered by South­ern Cal. The Rebels had a sim­i­lar start be­ing crushed by Ari­zona. Our Rebels look to make a good im­pres­sion against a qual­ity Fresno team. Sam Boyd Sta­dium, 7 pm, (702) 739-3267

2 LOS AN­GE­LES CLIP­PERS VS. DEN­VER NUGGETS > OCT. 18

When you think of peo­ple fly­ing through the air, you might think of Cirque de Soleil. Chris Paul and the Clip­pers look to change that. The high-wire act known as the Lob City takes flight against the Nuggets in a game sure to be filled with big dunks and plenty of scor­ing. After one of the most tu­mul­tuous off sea­sons in NBA his­tory, L. A.'s new No. 1 team in wants to build on last year’s play­off run, start­ing its fine-tun­ing in Ve­gas. Man­dalay Bay Events Cen­ter, 7:30 pm, (702) 632-7580

4 LOS AN­GE­LES LAK­ERS VS. SACRA­MENTO KINGS > OCT. 24

Las Ve­gas is a city filled with NBA bas­ket­ball, from the Sum­mer League to the US Na­tional Team. It’s not of­ten we get the op­por­tu­nity to see a liv­ing bas­ket­ball legend. Don’t miss your chance to see Kobe Bryant, who is sure to take the floor. After be­ing in­jured for all but six games last year, look for Sir Kobe to shake off the rust be­fore the sea­son starts. The youth of the Kings want to show they can play with the big boys, as they have a bevy of young tal­ent from Nik Stauskas to Ben McLe­more. 7 pm, MGM Grand Gar­den Arena, (702) 891-1111
