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

Hopefully this week’s games won’t disappoint as much as the Super Bowl did. Look to see a lot of Kevin Durant this week. The Oklahoma City Thunder have been on a roll and no team looks to be stopping them anytime soon.

Portland Trail Blazers at Indiana Pacers – Friday, February 7, 7 p.m.

The last time these two teams met, they put on a show. The Pacers will be looking for some revenge after the Blazers pulled off the early season win. Should be a competitive one.

Notable games:

Memphis Grizzlies at Oklahoma City Thunder – Monday, February 3, 8 p.m.

Will anyone stop Durant? The Grizzlies will have to do that if they want to stop the hottest team in the league right now.

Miami Heat at Los Angeles Clippers – Wednesday, February 5, 10:30 p.m.

Blake Griffin has been great in Chris Paul’s absence. LeBron James always steps up in these types of games. What will happen when these two physical teams meet up in Los Angeles?

Golden State Warriors at Phoenix Suns – Saturday, February 8, 9 p.m.

The Suns are the surprise team out West. Despite some injuries, they are playing at a high level, beating the Pacers twice in a little more than a week.

New York Knicks at Oklahoma City Thunder – Sunday, February 9, 1 p.m.

Carmelo Anthony versus Durant. Nothing else to see here.
