Can you feel it? The excitement is building and building. Birdmas is almost upon us. But until then, to help us pass the time, it's TNT doubleheader night, and we actually have two promising games on the slate (plus one not-so-promising game that won't be nationally televised). Did TNT plan this out in advance to help give us some contrast to the now 0-18 Nyets? If so, thank you TNT. If not, thanks anyway. I'll be slipping away from my lanes at the bowling alley every few minutes tonight to watch the Celtics game.Nationally Televised Games:Celtics at Spurs:
Old and creaky joints versus old and creaky joints. Boston's on a four game road trip, but both teams have won five in a row. This actually should be an entertaining game. No need for jokes here, even if a cheap shot at 'Sheed is always tempting...Heat at Nuggets:
D-Wade versus Carmelo. The Nuggets have won 12 of the last 15 games against Miami. During that stretch, they've won all seven games in Denver. Again, could be a good matchup. Where is all the bawful tonight? I'm confused. This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.All The Other Games:Rockets at Warriors:
Ah, there's the bawful. Thank you, Golden State. We can always count on you to keep us entertained with rushed shots and matador defense. The Warriors usually remind me of this
-- somewhat functional, but unnecessary and stupid.
