Careful, Troy Murphy! Kevin Garnett looks hungry!
It's time for another weekend full of basketball. You know what that means. A weekend full of bawful!
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
So glad I can't see what is happening below the camera frame...
Thompson! Quit trying to mirror what KD does! That's counterproductive when playing defense!!
Nationally Televised Friday Games:
Lakers at Knicks, ESPN, 8:00pm: Best joke I've seen all day: "
Jeremy Lin breaks barrier by being the first Knicks player to exceed expectations."
Thunder at Jazz, ESPN, 10:30pm:
The Thunder just lost on national television to Excremento. Excremento!! They are going to be pissed tonight. There may be bloodshed. There may be death and dismemberment.
All The Other Friday Games:
Hawks at Magic, 7:00pm:
That's it. I'm officially out. I do not care if Dwight Howard stays or goes. I'm just tired of reading about him every single time I see a game preview involving the Magic.
Clippers at 76ers, 7:00pm:
As noted by STATS LLC: "This matchup marks the finale of what coach Doug Collins termed as 'Death Row,' a seven-game span in which Philadelphia played four of the Eastern Conference's top six teams, two of the West's division leaders and the Los Angeles Lakers." Yikes. It's impressive they've gone 4-2 in that stretch, but they get to play Cleveland and Charlotte next. Those are like the ultimate trap games, right?
Wizards Generals, 7:00pm:
If you're going to be on a six game road trip, I guess this is as good a place to go as any, right?
Celtics at Craptors, 7:00pm:
Remember that horrible Lakers/Celtics game last night? Prepare yourself to watch more of the same!
Bulls at Bobcraps, 7:00pm:
Derrick Rose is still fighting back spasms and may be limited in this game. But really, does that matter? If you're a Bobcraps fan, you probably are just numb by this point aren't you? It's like a Billy Joel song.
Some days I have to give right in to the blues
Despite how I try to keep fightin'
It's a sure shot I'm going to lose
Bucks at Cavaliers, 7:30pm:
No Kyrie Irving tonight. SO much for there being any reason to watch this game.
Nyets at Pistons, 7:30pm:
The last time the Nyets won a game was against the Pistons a week ago. They have lost four straight since. I don't need to say anything else about how crappy this game will be, do I?
Trail Blazers at Hornets, 8:00pm:
Ready for your mind to be blown? Check this out
: "Portland has the best point differential in the West, and are 9th in the conference. I don't even..."
Mavericks at Timberwolves, 8:00pm:
The Mavs have lost two straight to the Timberwolves AND Kevin Love is back from a suspension tonight. That's got to be enough for Rick Carlisle to break out in a cold sweat
Pacers at Grizzlies, 8:00pm:
Quincy Pondexter scored a career-high 17 points the other night. The bad news? This is really hurting his chances of making the Null-Star team for a second straight season.
Nationally Televised Saturday Games:
Suns at Kings, NBA TV, 10:00pm:
Excremento is looking to win their fourth consecutive home game. Their home record is 7-4. I am extremely confused. (Note: I am perpetually confused. This is just worse than normal.)
All The Other Saturday Games:
Nuggets at Pacers, 7:00pm:
The Nuggets have dropped five straight games. But they're still second in their conference! No need to panic yet. You know, except for the whole "they've lost five straight" thing.
Clippers at Bobcraps, 7:00pm:
Some fun stats for your consideration regarding how unbelievably bawful Charlotte is this season. PTS/G: 87.2 (28th of 30). Opp PTS/G: 100.8 (29th of 30). SRS: -13.67 (30th of 30). Off Rtg: 94.5 (30th of 30). Def Rtg: 109.2 (29th of 30).
76ers at Cavaliers, 7:30pm:
Fair warning. Kyrie Irving has already been ruled out of this game as well.
Knicks at Timberwolves, 8:00pm:
No, I'm not done posing about Linsanity. Because the Taiwanese animation guys are at it again! Enjoy:
Spurs at Nyets, 8:00pm: MANU!
Trail Blazers at Nyets, 8:30pm:
Well, the Keith Bogans experiment sure didn't last long, did it? He's already done for the season
Magic at Bucks, 9:00pm:
So what team will he end up on? No, I'm not talking about Dwight Howard again. I'm talking about Brandon Jennings
Nationally Televised Sunday Games:
Bulls at Celtics, ABC, 3:30pm:
I'm just going to say it: I hate it when two teams I like play each other. I really do.
Heat at Hawks, ESPN, 7:00pm:
You just know they're going to play the most boring QUADRUPLE overtime game in history just to screw with us.
Jazz at Grizzlies, ESPN, 9:30pm:
Prepare yourself for Valentine's Day folks. You need to get you some Memphis Grizzlies Valentine's Day cards
. I cannot stress enough how amazing these are, and I'm pretty certain that giving your sweetheart one of these cards WILL get you laid. It has even better odds than Sex Panther.
All The Other Sunday Games:
Lakers at Craptors, 1:00pm:
Well, at least we're getting the bad game out of the way early...
Wizards Generals at Pistons, 6:00pm:
Rockets at Warriors, 9:00pm:
I always enjoy it when teams have an identity. For example, the Warriors. They're 5th in points per game... and 30th in points allowed per game. So even with a coaching change, they're still the good ol' Warriors we've come to know and love!
