(Scrolls up one picture) Hey, didn't we just see this same exact pose?
Nationally Televised Games:
Crabs at Heat: King Crab and Dwyane "My First Name HAS To Be A Typo" Wade match up very evenly in most of their head-to-head games. However, this IS the "Bipolar Girlfriend At That Time of the Month on Crystal Meth" Heat we're talking about. The scores in their most recent games? 113-83 win, 104-65 loss, 112-88 win, and 115-84 win.
All The Other Games:
Pacers at 76ers: You mean this game isn't being nationally televised?? I'm shocked! Shocked, I say! Both of these teams are still somewhat in playoff contention in the East! (You know, despite being nowhere close to .500)
Clippers at Celtics: So, KG's back. (I even got to watch him beat the Frail Blazers this weekend thanks to the NBA.com League Pass free trial. Anybody want to pony up the money to get me a subcription to that thing? Thanks in advance.) But does it really matter? Quick algebra quiz for you: Find the value of X if the Clippers + on the road + are who we thought they were = X.
Magic at Grizzlies: Ten straight home victories by the Grizzlies? Holy crap. If anybody here saw that coming before the start of the season, please raise your hand. And then put it right back down because you're friggin' lying and you know it.
Hawks at Rockets: Houston has won 16 of their last 17 against the Hawks. Dang. This should be a good one, however, as the Hawks are playing well right now thanks to Jamal Crawford's bench play.
Bulls at Spurs: This Spurs team makes me want to start drinking like Vin Baker whenever I see them go from looking solid for a couple games to absolutely shitting the bed for a five game stretch. Play just a little defense, please??
Bobcats at Nuggets: Charlotte is right at .500 heading into this game, but is 3-16 on the road. Really? Really?? Even worse, they haven't beaten a Western team on the road yet this season, and their next six games are all part of a Western road trip. Ouch.
Suns at Jazz: Speaking of being awful on the road, the "Defense? Running to get into position? Hand in the face? Pfft!!!!" Suns haven't taken a road game since late November. And considering the Jazz are pretty damn solid at home and are playing great on offense right now... Yeah...
Hornets at Frail Blazers: I was going to preview this game, but I strained a hamstring, dislocated a kneecap, and broke a foot just typing Portland's team name.
