On Wednesday, October 31st, or Halloween to most people, there are seven NBA games on tap including two nationally televised games.

Games will be played throughout the night starting at 7 p.m. Eastern Time. Tune in to see some of the league's top talent and teams go head-to-head on the scariest night of the year.

All times are Eastern.

Detroit Pistons at Brooklyn Nets, 7 p.m.

The Pistons are off to one of the hottest starts of the year while the Nets have been good at times through the first four games. Blake Griffin scored 51 points on Tuesday and is averaging 36.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists thus far this season.

Indiana Pacers at New York Knicks, 8 p.m. on TSN 3, TSN 5

The Pacers haven't had the start to the season they wanted but they're in better shape than the Knicks. Victor Oladipo has been fun to watch regardless, averaging 21.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists. Many believe that Indiana has what it takes to be a sleeper in the East with plenty of young talent on display.

Denver Nuggets at Chicago Bulls, 8 p.m.

The Nuggets have been one of the best teams in the league through the first week of the NBA season, mostly in-part to the play of budding star centre Nikola Jokic. He's averaging 23.3 points, 10.5 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game alongside 21.0 points from Gary Harris. As for the Bulls Zach LaVine has been the player to watch, scoring 32.3 points per game.

Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves, 8 p.m.

Donovan Mitchell finally had the breakout game we were waiting for, scoring 38 against the Houston Rockets. The Jazz will look to continue their hot start against the Timberwolves, who have had a puzzling start to the year.

New Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m.

This acts as a rematch of the second round of the Western Conference playoffs from a season ago. The Pelicans have been great thus far behind incredible starts from Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic. As for the Warriors, it's been the same old song and dance as Stephen Curry has been cooking to start the season. He had 51 points in three quarters against the Washington Wizards.

Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Lakers, 10:30 p.m.

The Lakers haven't gotten out to an ideal start this season but finally got in the win column after defeating the Phoenix Suns. Mavericks' young star Luka Doncic has played well through the first few games of his career, averaging 19.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.

San Antonio Spurs at Phoenix Suns, 10:30 p.m. on TSN 3, TSN 5

DeMar DeRozan exploded for 32 points in an overtime win over the Lakers and has been great to start his Spurs era. DeAndre Ayton also notched a double-double against the Lakers with 22 points and 12 rebounds. Between DeRozan, Ayton, Devin Booker and LaMarcus Aldridge, there is plenty of star power in this one.
