We haven't done one of these in a couple days (sorry, we're a bunch of slackers), but here's today's B.A.D.
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
"Can you believe Detroit traded me to Denver for you? I thought Joe Dumars was supposed to know what he was doing."
Richard Jefferson takes a break from playing defense to wave to some fans in the audience.
The Blazers appear to have forgotten that Greg Oden is no longer there to block shots like this one.
"I can't believe how easy it was to get this layup! The Warriors defense is definitely as bad as advertised!"
Nationally Televised Game:
Crabs at Grizzlies - The Griz have had a little resurgence of late, so this might be a good game. If not it should give the NBA TV studio crew ample chances to fall all over themselves as they try to outdo each other in who can praise LeBron the most.
All the Other Games:
Timberwolves at Craptors - Toronto puts its record-setting bawful defense to the test tonight as it takes on Clothesline Rambis and his hapless Timberpups. Toronto should be careful though, the Wolves come in riding their biggest winning streak of the season (one game).
Nuggets at Bobcats - Both teams enter this game fresh off wins against the 76ers. The question you have to ask yourself is if Denver's win over Philly was more or less impressive because Iverson played in that game. I'm going with less.
Bucks at Celtics - Two early season surprises that appear to be going in different directions. After starting 8-3 the Bucks have lost 7 of 8, while the Celtics appear to be rolling after faltering a bit a few weeks back. There's a reason Boston is favored in this one by twelve and a half points.
Kings at Hornets - Tyreke Evans vs. CP3 should be a lot of fun in this one. Donte Greene vs Devin Brown, not so much (even though both players are named after colors!).
Nyets at Bulls - Sorry Mr. Bawful, this is Basketbawful's Game of the Night.
Suns at Mavs - It's a good thing the voters for tonight's Fan Night game picked LeBron vs. Memphis rather than this game, cause Phoenix vs. Dallas is usually so boring. /sarcasm
Magic at Clippers - The Clips have been crawling back toward respectability lately (only two games under .500!). Look for the Magic to send a healthy reminder that The Other LA Team is still who we thought they were.
