A dozen games tonight, which means that the odds of two-thirds of the night’s games being blowout — like they were last night — are very, very low. And, if they turn out bad, “Survivor” and “Top Chef: All Stars” are on.
Memphis Grizzlies at Boston Celtics
Mostly because this is Tony Allen’s return to Boston, which promises to be hilarious. Also, pretty big game for both teams. The Grizzers need all the wins they can manage and Boston has a chance to regain first place in the Eastern Conference. Let’s do it.
San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets
It’s going to be interesting to see what a Duncan-less Spurs team does against another playoff team. And it’ll be interesting to see if the Nuggets can topple the top team in the conference. So, basically, lots of interesting happening.
Orlando Magic at New York Knicks
Hey, the Knicks — win an important game for once. At least try.
Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets
If the Grizzlies lose and the Rockets win, Houston will be a game out of the eighth playoff spot. Really want to see both teams in the postseason, but want to see a tight race even more.
Utah Jazz at Oklahoma City Thunder
This baby is totally down with the Thunder, so you might as well watch them.
