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

The season is almost a month old. There has been lots of drama already, and it continues this week. A team to watch this week will be the Los Angeles Clippers. They’ve got a few tough matchups. Will they survive this week?

GAME OF THE WEEK

Los Angles Clippers at Oklahoma City Thunder – Thursday, November 21, 8 p.m.

The Clippers are looking like a team poised to go deep into the playoffs this year. Last week, tempers flared when these two teams met up with Serge Ibaka and Matt Barnes both being thrown out of the game. This game will get intense for sure. It’s no secret – these teams don’t like one another. Makes for great entertainment.

Notable games:

Indiana Pacers at New York Knicks – Wednesday, November 20, 7 p.m.

The Pacers kicked the Knicks out of the playoffs last year. J.R. Smith struggled. Roy Hibbert dominated. What will happen when they see each other again? The Knicks have started out to a slow start, losing their last five games at Madison Square Garden, some of those games in blowout fashion. Can they get on track by beating an Eastern Conference power in the Pacers?

Los Angeles Clippers at Minnesota Timberwolves – Wednesday, November 20, 8 p.m.

It’s another Clippers game worth watching. The Timberwolves are no joke. Kevin Love is fun to watch. Tune in!

San Antonio Spurs at Memphis Grizzlies – Friday, November 22, 8 p.m.

The Grizzlies were embarrassed last year by the Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. Will they get some respect back after this game?
