Every week, we will be discussing the game of the week – a game not worth missing.

The second week of the season, where teams begin to differentiate themselves from the good and the bad. Sometimes the ugly. In any case, there are plenty of games to watch for but here are a handful that stand out amongst the multitude…

GAME OF THE WEEK

Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Clippers – Tonight, 10:30 p.m.

Both teams have started out the season strong. The Rockets have been impressive as their 3-0 record shows. The Clippers have been led by Chris Paul, who is averaging close to 28 points and 12 assists a game. It’s still early, but this game could be a Western Conference Finals matchup. The great news is that if you happen to miss this game, the teams play again this Saturday, November 9, at 8 p.m.

Notable games:

Chicago Bulls at Indiana Pacers – November 6, 7 p.m.

The Bulls have looked a bit rusty, especially Derrick Rose, but if you’re looking for a game filled with physical play, then this is the one. Rose said this isn’t a rivalry, yet, and I’m sure the Pacers took that as a jab. Look for some altercations in this game.

Los Angeles Clippers at Miami Heat – November 7, 7 p.m.

Finals preview? You never know. The Heat struggle with teams with elite point guards. Guess who the Clippers have? This should be a fun one to watch.

Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs – November 8, 8:30 p.m.

This may have been one of the more entertaining matchups in the Western Conference playoffs last year. It should live up to last year’s intense games.

Indiana Pacers at Brooklyn Nets – November 9, 7:30 p.m.

The Nets showed that they are for real by beating the Heat. Now, can they take out another Eastern Conference favorite?
