Atlanta Hawks at Chicago Bulls
Quite obviously the biggest game of the Bulls’ season thus far. No duh, but it should probably be mentioned so that when the Bulls win by 20, they can get some fist pounds. (That is me using the power of positive thinking.)
Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Lakers
For whatever reason, the Lakers being in a 0-1 seems less daunting than the Bulls sitting in the same position. Maybe that’s because Chicago has won two less NBA titles in the past two years. Or maybe it’s because even though it’s entirely possible, it just doesn’t feel like the Mavericks can beat the Lakers four times.
Survivor (CBS — 8pm ET)
There is a bit of debate around TBJ about whether or not Boston Rob can actually win this season. To me, he’s played the game so well that people won’t give him jury votes because that’s what always happens because people get all bitter about being voted off. JD disagrees. No matter what though, tonight is the first time his alliance will have to vote off one of their own. Meet me at the tree mail, it’s going down.
Memphis Grizzlies Hype-Up Video
This is the video that was played in the locker room prior to Memphis’ first round series against the Spurs. It’s awesome because you can tell this is the first time the franchise has ever had to make a video like this. I mean, they included an assistant coach’s college team winning the NIT as proof that the Grizzlies are winners. Highly recommended.
Pacers Reading Books
If you were ever wondering what it would be like to have Roy Hibbert read you “I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly,” then wonder no more.
