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

The stretch run begins this week. Which teams will fade, and which teams will rise? Can the Indiana Pacers hold off the Miami Heat for the top spot in the East? Will the Oklahoma City Thunder roll in the West?

GAME OF THE WEEK

Miami Heat at Oklahoma City Thunder – Thursday, February 20, 8 p.m.

Kevin Durant and LeBron James didn’t get to go one on one on many occasions during the All-Star game, but this will be different and a lot better. Durant and the Thunder got the best of James and the Heat in their last matchup. Will Wade be healthy for this one? Should be a good one.

Notable games:

San Antonio Spurs at Portland Trail Blazers – Wednesday, February 19, 10 p.m.

Can the Spurs hold on to one of the top spots after so many injuries? This will be an important game and a huge test for the team moving forward.

Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors – Thursday, February 20, 10:30 p.m.

The Warriors have struggled lately and need this game. Every game will be important for them as they try to lock into a playoff spot.

Los Angeles Clippers at Memphis Grizzlies – Friday, February 21, 8 p.m.

The Grizzlies are battling for a playoff spot. This one will get physical. It always does when these two teams meet.

San Antonio Spurs at Phoenix Suns – Friday, February 21, 9 p.m.

The Suns are a fun team to watch. How will the Spurs slow down Goran Dragic?

Los Angeles Clippers at Oklahoma City Thunder – Sunday, February 23, 1 p.m.

These two teams hate each other. It could be a possible playoff preview.
