Do you like seeing basketball teams score lots of baskets? Then this will be a fun game for you to watch.
Kevin Durant visits Toronto. How much will Drake get fined this time?
I'm already so confused.
The first meeting since last season's ridiculously ridiculous seven-game first-round series. Two things we can be pretty confident in: (1) The game will go to overtime and (2) Steven Adams will make Zach Randolph very mad.
I suppose this is still a reasonably big deal, but the Knicks-Nets rivalry hasn't really taken off the way it was expected to. Part of the problem has been the lack of importance of the games. Both teams could be kind of decent this season -- maybe -- so there's hope that this game establishes a good tone for the other three.
Take 2 for the NBA in Mexico City. Last season the Spurs and Wolves tried to play a game in Mexico's capital, only to have it postponed because of an electrical fire in the building. But that's fixed now -- probably!
Patrick Beverley and Russell Westbrook playing hateful basketball against each other is always high entertainment. Oh, and that whole James Harden-versus-his-old-team-thing is still pretty interesting, too.
Lance Stephenson is back in Indianapolis and we can only hope he runs into the stands and blows in Larry Bird's ear after dropping a triple-double.
Jason Kidd returns to Brooklyn. If Mikhail Prokhorov doesn't fly in for this one, I'm going to be pretty disappointed.
Once upon a time in the days of Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes, this was one of the best rivalries in the league. It's lost some of the buzz, but with both teams now contenders in the Eastern Conference, the general dislike could be resurrected.
You just know Klay Thompson is going to score 54 points on 18-of-21 shooting from 3, and Flip Saunders will cry softly with a clipboard held over his face while Steve Kerr holds out his arms with a "You see now?" gesture.
Pretty simple: LeBron vs. Durant.
(Interesting sidenote: Durant is 0-5 against LeBron the Cavalier, losing by an average of 15.2 points.)
