There were only two games last night and there's only two games tomorrow night, but on tonight's slate we've got a real bevy of bawfulness to the tune of 13 games. That's like a giant basketball sandwich
! But before we look ahead to all the wonderful things The Association has in store for us tonight, let's first reflect back on what happened last night.
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Here LeBron accepts the NBA Douche of the Month Award for backing out of the slam dunk contest.
No wonder John Hollinger said Jose Calderon is
"probably the worst defensive PG in the league right now."
Wow, that's um, quite some attendance they're
getting down there in Miami these days.
Can someone tell me why it looks like the Heat have
as many banners hanging in their rafters as the Celtics do?
Nationally Televised Game:
Jazz at Spurs -
You know, I'm tempted to dub this tonight's Basketbawful Game of the Night simply because Dick Vitale is calling it
, but I think I'll leave that honor to something a little further down the page.
All the Other Games:
Kings at Hawks - Something to keep in mind if you're betting on tonight's winner: Sacramento is 3-16 on the road and Atlanta is 16-5 at home. You do the math.
Pacers at Magic - Tonight the Magicians look to see if their strategy of freezing out Dwight Howard and his newfound bank shot will keep their losing streak alive, but Indiana just got drilled in Miami last night so that might not happen.
Frail Blazers at 76ers - One team is totally inept and the other looks like they just took a car ride with Chris Brown. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Basketbawful Game of the Night.
Wizards Generals Bullets - The last time these teams played was opening night, when Washington beat Dallas badly on their home court and it looked like the Wiz were gonna maybe be championship contenders this year. Boy what a difference three months makes.
Heat at Bobcats - Has anyone noticed the Cats have got the best record of any team in the league in 2010? Miami's on the second night of a back to back in Charlotte and might be in trouble in this one.
Celtics at Pistons - Rasheed makes his first return to Detroit after bolting last summer for greener pastures in Boston. Maybe he'll get a double tech and an ejection just for old time's sake.
Grizzlies at Hornets - Two rather surprisingly good teams of late, but something to keep an eye on: CP3 has fouled out of two of his last three games after only doing so once in the previous 300 or so games.
Craptors at Bucks - Brandon Jennings' Rookie of the Year bid might get a big bump tonight, seeing as how he's squaring off against possibly the worst defensive PG in the league.
Thunder at Timberwolves - Minnesota appears to be a speed bump on Oklahoma's road to the playoffs, but might actually put up a fight if Kevin Love gets over his strep throat and suits up for this one.
Nyets at Suns - With the way Phoenix has been spiraling downward lately, you can guess how desperately happy they are to see New Jersey and their three wins on the schedule for tonight.
Nuggets at Warriors - Nellie's hapless defenders are actually better at home than Denver is on the road, so Gol_en State might actually have a chance in this one.
Bulls at Clippers - The Bulls go for their fifth road win of the season against the Other LA Team tonight in the Clip Joint. Which center looks weirder: Chris Kaman or Joakim Noah? Leave your votes in the comments.
