Each week, there are more than 50 NBA games to watch. So how do you figure out which ones to turn on and which ones to tune out?
Easy, you take our advice.
From now until the NBA Playoffs (when picking games gets easier), we’ll be choosing our favorite NBA game to watch. Monday to Friday. Rain or shine.
MONDAY – NOV. 5, 2012
New York Knicks @ Philadelphia 76ers
(7:0o PM EST | MSG/CSN)
Game 2 of a very important home-and-home match-up between two Atlantic Division rivals.
The biggest story here is that by the time this series is over, the Knicks will have already played half of their games against a very difficult Sixers team who don’t have Andrew Bynum or Jason Richardson.
TUESDAY – NOV. 6, 2012
Toronto Raptors @ Oklahoma City Thunder
(8:00 PM EST | NBA TV)
There’s not a lot to hype up in this game except for the fact that it gives the nation an early peep into how the new-look Thunder will work.
Also, it’s been awhile since you’ve Landry Fields on TV.
WEDNESDAY – NOV. 7, 2012
Sacramento Kings @ LA Clippers
(10:30 PM EST | ESPN)
Lob City looks to bring their high-flying game to Sacramento. Are Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins good enough to stop CP3 and Blake Griffin?
Probably not, but that’s why they play the game.
THURSDAY – NOV. 8, 2012
LA Clippers @ Portland Trailblazers
(10:30 PM EST | TNT)
There aren’t a lot of games that are being played this Thursday, but you could do a lot worse than watching two Clippers games in a row. They’re my (very unpopular) favorite for winning the Pacific Division. Yes, I’m serious. Their bench isn’t that deep but I don’t care. Mike Brown’s Lakers aren’t going to beat proven chemistry.
FRIDAY – NOV. 9, 2012
Philadelphia 76ers @ Boston Celtics
(7:30 PM EST | CSN/CSNN)
How good are the Celtics, really? How good are the Sixers, really? Only one way to find out.
As a New York Knicks fan, this is going to be a great game to watch.
