Happy Hump Day everyone! We've got a good group of games up for tonight, but let's first reflect on the bawfulry from last night...
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
"Yo calm down Jose, you're starting to freak me out."
"Come give your Uncle Kevin a kiss."
"Wait, we're losing by how much to the Knicks?!"
"Greg, another foul? Are you effing kidding me?!"
"Mommy Mommy help, Jermaine O'Neal is coming to get me!!!"
"Say Lamar, you ever notice that there's like a clock or something up on top of the backboard?"
Nationally Televised Games:
76ers at Thunder - Allen Iverson won't be playing in this one tonight (he was too busy doing today's Worst of the Night), but you can watch and see if Philly can lose their 8th straight game for the first time since Iverson was playing for them.
Rockets at Clippers - Tune in to watch Mike Dunleavy edge ever closer to his 700th loss against those always-scrappy Rockets. No Luis Scola (or T-Mac or Yao) so the Rockets will be thin on bodies on the court tonight. However, it's a home game for the Other LA Team so the Clips will probably be thin on bodies in the stands tonight.
All the Other Games:
Raptors at Hawks - The Raptors are 2-8 on the road this year and are on the second night of a back to back after losing to the Wiz last night. The Hawks are 7-1 at home this year and are looking to make up for that humiliating loss to Detroit on Sunday. You do the math.
Suns at Crabs - This game comes down to whether the Suns want to exact some revenge on Shaq for torpedoing their last two seasons by simply being on the team, or whether Shaq wants to exact some revenge on the Suns simply because he hates every team he's ever played for.
Knicks at Magic - Expect all the goodwill the Knicks created last night with their thumping of the Suns to get wiped away tonight in Orlando
when if the Magic kick the crap out of D'Antoni's runners and gunners.
Bucks at Wizards - Are you all psyched for Brandon Jennings vs. Gilbert Arenas? Whatever. I'm looking forward to Antawn Jamison vs. Ersan Ilyasova!
Mavericks at Nyets - This is it folks, tonight the Nyets look to make basketball history by going for their 18th consecutive loss to start the season - a feat that has never been accomplished before. Then again Devin Harris kinda single-handedly demolished the Mavs the last time Cuban's boys were in Jersey, so you never know.
Pistons at Bulls - Home sweet home for Mr. Bawful's Bullies, as the Bulls' "Circus Trip" is finally over! As a bonus, tonight's game might also feature the return of Air Gordon to play against his former team, unless he decides to keep hiding behind that whole "sprained ankle" nonsense.
Grizzlies at Timberwolves - The ballots are in, the votes have been tallied. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Basketbawful's Game of the Night.
Pacers at Kings - Chris and Mr. Bawful will probably be paying attention to this game, but I'll go out on a limb and say that if the rest of you decided to skip it you wouldn't be missing much.
