SCIC's Game of the Week: Durant vs. James

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

There will be tons of fun matchups this week – it won’t disappoint.


Oklahoma City Thunder at Miami Heat – Wednesday, January 29, 7 p.m.

This is definitely an NBA Finals preview. The way Kevin Durant has been playing without Russell Westbrook has been amazing. Miami loves these types of challenges, and I’m sure LeBron James will love to show Durant that he’s still the MVP of the league. Look for the Heat to rise up to the occasion for this one.

Notable games:

Memphis Grizzlies at Portland Trail Blazers – Tuesday, January 28, 10 p.m.

The Grizzlies have been playing much better as of late, and they need to make a push to get into playoff contention. The Blazers have been consistent all year. Expect the best out of both teams.

San Antonio Spurs at Houston Rockets – Tuesday, January 28, 8 p.m.

The Dwight Howard and Tim Duncan matchup is always intriguing. The Spurs are struggling with injuries right now, but they seem to always be competitive.

Phoenix Suns at Indiana Pacers – Thursday, January 30, 7 p.m.

This will be a rematch of last week’s game where the Suns clobbered the Pacers by 24 points. The Pacers have struggled defensively on a West Coast road trip. We’ll see if they can get back on track at home. 

Los Angeles Clippers at Golden State Warriors – Thursday, January 30, 10:30 p.m.

These teams hate each other. That is all. Enjoy this one.
