NBA Week 7: Unmissable Games

This will be fun. The NBA crowns its In-Season Tournament champion this week, and it’s going to be quick, too, because there will be no seven-game series involved. It is a “win and you’re in the next round” scheme that is surely going to grab our attention.

Dec. 4: Boston Celtics at Indiana Pacers

The Boston Celtics will face an Indiana squad that won all four of their “Group Play” games. Even if the Celtics have the better record in the regular standings, they still have to watch out for the Pacers who will be playing at home. All it takes is one good game in a single-elimination setting.

Dec. 4: New Orleans Pelicans at Sacramento Kings

All the buzz in this game will be about how the Kings qualified to reach the Knockout Rounds. In one of the best games of the season so far, the Kings had to overcome a 24-point deficit against the mighty Golden State Warriors to get here. Now, they will face the Pelicans who just got CJ McCollum back from injury.

Dec. 5: New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks

Robin Lopez, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, and Bobby Portis will be hosting their former team when the Knicks visit Wisconsin. It will also be a homecoming for New York’s Donte DiVincenzo who previously played for the Bucks. The excitement level, of course, gets turned up a notch because of what’s at stake. A win in this game gets you a spot in the NBA Cup’s “Final Four” stage.

Dec. 5: Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers

This becomes an extra Suns-Lakers game for us. Originally scheduled to meet four times during the regular season, the In-Season Tournament just gifted us with one more game between the two teams. This season, the Lakers won the first meeting by five and the second meeting by three. Any guesses how this one will go? We will have to tune in and find out.

Dec. 7 and 9: Last Two Days of In-Season Tournament

The four remaining teams will head to Las Vegas where the NBA Cup champion will be determined. This gives off a vibe similar to the NCAA’s Final Four where teams will be playing at a neutral site. Whether we liked or hated the idea of this In-Season Tournament, we have to admit that these games added an “early excitement” feel to the season. Now, we are eager to see who wins it all.

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
