Lotta games on tap for tonight. So much bawful, so little time...
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Today's pictures are brought to you by the many faces of Andres Nocioni ("Noc" as his friends call him).
Nationally Televised Game:
Bulls at Hawks - Considering the collapse the Bulls are going through right now you might think this is an odd choice for a nationally televised game, but odds are good that if the Bulls lose this one (which they're almost certain to do) then this could be Vinny Del Negro's last game coaching the team, so you might want to watch for that reason alone. Nice of ESPN to broadcast VDN's last game like that, don't you think?
All the Other Games:
Pistons at 76ers - Iverson's comeback tour/return from retirement/games against teams glad to be rid of him bonanza rolls on with tonight's game against the same Pistons team AI quit on last year when faced with the unfathomable horror of having to come off the bench.
Craptors at Bucks - A big matchup between two Eastern teams battling it out for one of those lower playoff seeds and the accompanying honor of getting drilled in the first round by someone like Boston or Orlando. Listen guys, you'd probably be better off to just tank the season now and go for the draft pick. I'm just sayin'.
Hornets at Timberwolves - CP3 back to back against upstart rookie PGs who are coming for his crown, first Tyreke Evans and now Johnny Flynn! Watch as Minnesota goes for its 3rd home win while New Orleans goes for its 2nd road win! NBA Action, it's Faaaaantastic!
Crabs at Rockets - Who wants to bet that Shaq gets outplayed by 6'6" Chuck Hayes tonight? The Diesel on the second night of a back to back these days tends to move like a big rig driving up a steep hill.
Kings at Spurs - Just what the doctor ordered for San Antonio. Fresh off three straight losses the Spurs must be licking their chops at seeing Sacramento in the
Alamodome AT&T Center.
Jazz at Lakers - Probably the game of the night in the Association tonight (which is why I'm glad I'll be in attendance). Utah's been playing well lately, but they've still got a ton of injuries and the Lakers are still the Lakers, so I may be the proud owner of a coupon for two free tacos by the end of the night.
