Our nightly look ahead to the schedule with a couple of notes and story lines so you can plan out your NBA viewing.  All Times Eastern.

Fire up the League Pass

8:00  Denver Nuggets @ Chicago Bulls (NBA TV)

Still no Derrick Rose for the Bulls, who clearly don't need him* as they've won four in a row and 12-4 without him. Chicago is locked up a playoff spot already, but Denver is in a dogfight for a spot out West.  They're in a three-way tie for the seventh spot and 1.5 games out of the fourth spot. Denver is not playing well and they're dealing with a few injuries of their own, but a little run here could vault Denver back into the middle of the playoff race.

*sarcasm

Couple of notes:

  • Denver is 16-8 when scoring 20 or more fast break points
  • Chicago has not lost consecutive games in the regular season since Feb. 5-7, 2011, a span of 82 games.  That's the longest stretch in team history and 4th best in NBA history
Other story lines for tonight

7:00  Orlando-Toronto:  Orlando tries to put together a three-game win streak.

7:00  Detroit-Washington:  The Wizards complete their back-to-back-to-back stretch.

7:00  Boston-Charlotte:  A Boston win pulls them into a tie for the Atlantic Division lead with Philadelphia. 

7:00  Miami-Indiana:  The Heat try to beat the Pacers for the sixth straight time.

7:30  Milwaukee-New York:  Jeremy Lin and Amar'e Stoudemire are gametime decisions.

8:00  Sacramento-Houston:  The Rockets try to finish their homestand 3-1 despite missing Kevin Martin & Kyle Lowry.

10:30  New Orleans-LA Clippers:  The Clippers look for revenge after the Hornets loss completed an 0-3 road trip for them.
