Best games of 2014-15 NBA schedule

March 5: Oklahoma City Thunder at Chicago Bulls

We've been deprived of Derrick Rose versus Russell Westbrook for far too long. Two of the most athletic players ever to play point guard relentlessly attacking each other on both ends of the floor? Please and thank you.

March 11: Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers

The Rockets return to Portland for the first time since Damian Lillard iced them at the buzzer and left them all standing confused and shaken. I'm just assuming, but I bet Patrick Beverley spent his entire offseason working out with a picture of Lillard in front of him.

March 12: Cleveland Cavaliers at San Antonio Spurs

LeBron heads back to San Antonio. It's March, so if the Spurs are going to get him to sweat, they'll have to crank the heater up a bit.

March 25 and April 7: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs

The West's two presumptive favorites take each other on twice in a two-week span in games that potentially could decide either a tiebreaker between them, the top two seeds of the Western Conference, or both. Obviously there's some history building between the teams, and with a couple of games late in the season, this could be a delicious appetizer to get us all prepared for the main course of the postseason.

April 5: Chicago Bulls at Cleveland Cavaliers

There's a strong possibility the final Cavs-Bulls matchup could greatly influence the top seeding in the East. And it might be a small glimpse into an oncoming postseason battle in the conference finals as well.
