On the Schedule: Brandon Jennings and Derrick Rose go head-to-head
What to watch for on tonight's NBA schedule.
LA Lakers vs. Portland: The Blazers are fading, and perhaps even changing their season expectations a bit. Not a good time to play the Lakers, coming off an embarrassing loss to the Clippers.
Chicago vs. Milwaukee: Last year's next great point guard Derrick Rose vs. this year's next great point guard Brandon Jennings. The game has playoff implications too, as both teams are around that eighth spot.
Dallas vs. San Antonio: The Mavs are fading a bit, and the Spurs window may be closing. But both, somehow, are among the best in the West still. Things don't change in Texas hoops.
Boston vs. Atlanta: Dating back to the epic playoff series, these games are always fun. Haven't been as testy since, but the potential is always there.
Indiana vs. Minnesota: What, we can't get excited for Roy Hibbert and Troy Murphy vs. Kevin Love and Al Jefferson? Murphy is questionable after missing the last four games, but could return. We love our big men around here.
