Monday, February 4th: Bulls @ Pacers, 7:00 ET, NBALP: It’s an eight-game Monday tonight, which is different, but there still aren’t any choices that really stand out as far as probable entertainment value… which is pretty much what I look for in my selections.  That said, Chicago at Indiana should be exciting in the sense that it figures to be a hard-fought battle between a couple of Eastern Conference powers.  Though the Bulls are expected to be missing their defensive anchor in Joakim Noah, that didn’t prevent them from crushing the Hawks on Saturday evening.  Plus, they’ve still got the Player of the Week in Nate Robinson.  That’s correct, Nate Robinson won Player of the Week. Tuesday, February 5th: Bucks @ Nuggets, 9:00 ET, NBALP: I find that the Bucks can be rather hit or miss, and Denver is a tough place to win.  I’m pretty sure Milwaukee will be wearing their throwbacks, though, so even if it’s a bad game it’s not like you’re going to regret wasting an hour or two pretending Ekpe Udoh is Big Dog Glenn Robinson.  Plus, Brandon Jennings and Larry Sanders.  Always worth the price of admission, those two. Wednesday, February 6th: Warriors @ Thunder, 8:00 ET, NBALP: Kent Bazemore and the Golden State Warriors travel to Bricktown to take on Hasheem Thabeet and the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Also, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Martin, Stephen Curry, David Lee, Jarrett Jack, and Carl Landry.  Should be decent.  It’s a revenge game for OKC, so I’m saying they take it at home.  Just watch where you’re cutting, Thabo. Thursday, February 7th: Lakers @ Celtics, 8:00 ET, TNT: It ain’t what it used to be, but still a decent matchup, I guess. It’s also Thursday, which means I don’t really have any choices. Friday, February 8th: Clippers @ Heat, 8:00 ET, NBALP: I was tempted to choose the Lakers’ scheduled loss at Charlotte, but the Lakers losing is something that can and probably will happen in any city nowadays.  So, although it’s on ESPN, which totally blows, you should probably watch LeBron take on Mini LeBron in a battle for the world heavyweight title in athleticism.  Winner gets Rasheed Wallace’s championship belt. Saturday, February 9th: Nuggets @ Cavaliers, 7:30 ET, NBATV: Sunday, February 10th: Grizzlies @ Wolves, 6:00 ET, NBALP: Because it ain’t a week at NBA247365.COM without Nikola Pekovic (and to a lesser extent, Tony Wroten)!  Seriously though, the Wolves are generally a blast to watch even now that they’re all banged up and not very good.  Ricky Rubio is the patron saint of passing, Andrei Kirilenko is a basketball genius, Chris Johnson is Anthony Davis on a 10-day contract, and Dante Cunningham is Minnesota’s leading source of renewable energy.
