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

The top teams stayed on top and the bottom teams continued to show how obvious it is that they are trying to win the lottery. Watch for the Indiana Pacers this week. They have some tough games coming up, all on the road.

GAME OF THE WEEK

Indiana Pacers at San Antonio Spurs – Saturday, December 7, 8:30 p.m.

NBA Finals preview? I know it’s early, but these have been the two best teams in the league to start the year. The Spurs aren’t slowing down, despite their age. The Pacers are out there trying to prove a point. Both teams are packed with talent. The Pacers will have a hard time containing Tony Parker, while the Spurs will have their hands full with Paul George.

Notable games:

Indiana Pacers at Portland Trail Blazers – Today, December 2, 10 p.m.

Portland has been on a tear and not many predicted them to be near the top of the Western Conference. The Pacers continue their Western Conference road trip. Can they keep it up after a big win against the Clippers in Los Angeles.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers – Wednesday, December 4, 10 p.m.

Two of the top Western Conference teams collide in this match. Could be a playoff preview.

New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets – Thursday, December 5, 7 p.m.

Will the worst team in New York please stand up? That will be decided on Thursday. Should be ugly, but everyone, especially ESPN, seems to love these New York teams.

Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets – Friday, December 6, 8 p.m.

Dwight Howard could have gone to the Warriors this offseason, but chose the Rockets instead. Will the Warriors try and show him that he made the wrong decision? These are two of the youngest teams in the league going at it.

Indiana Pacers at Oklahoma City Thunder – Sunday, December 8, 7 p.m.

Another possible Finals preview. Kevin Durant goes up against Paul George. That’s all that needs to be said.
