SCIC’s Game of the Week (week 5)

James Harden, Manu Ginobili

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

Derrick Rose is done for a while, same goes for Marc Gasol, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are fighting for the worst team in New York award apparently, and the San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers continue to win. Let’s see what games are worth watching this week.

GAME OF THE WEEK

Houston Rockets at San Antonio Spurs – Saturday, November 30, 8:30 p.m.

Before the year began, a lot of people picked the Rockets as the favorite in the Western Conference. The Spurs have shown little sign of giving up that title. Both teams look sharp, with the Spurs sharing the best record in the league with the Pacers. The match-ups are very intriguing in this game. Will Tim Duncan guard Dwight Howard? Who will stop Tony Parker? Should be a fun one.

Notable games:

Minnesota Timberwolves at Indiana Pacers – Tonight, 7 p.m.

Kevin Love has always presented a challenge for the Pacers. The Timberwolves have struggled lately, but they are still a team with talent. This should be a good one from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana.

Miami Heat at Cleveland Cavaliers – Wednesday, November 27, 7:30 p.m.

LeBron James back in Cleveland. It’s always worth watching. You never know what could happen. The Cavaliers are struggling. This could be the game that puts them on track.

San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder – Wednesday, November 27, 8 p.m.

These two teams seem destined to be headed toward a battle in the playoffs. Should be a fun, physical game.

Golden State Warriors at Oklahoma City Thunder – Friday, November 29, 8 p.m.

It’s a matchup of two young teams who may be meeting in the playoffs. Who gets the upper hand?

Indiana Pacers at Los Angeles Clippers – Sunday, December 1, 3:30 p.m.

This will be the Pacers toughest road challenge thus far. Can they keep it going?
