Pretty blah night in the West..

More info on what happened last night and what to look for tonight, after das jump.

The Good:

Nothing

.

The Bad:

Also nothing.

.

The Meh:

  • The Spurs beat the Lakers without Kobe Bryant, and retook 1st place in the conference by half a game
  • The Grizz beat the T-Wolves. Memphis is too far ahead for us to worry about, and Minnesota too far below.

.

.

Tonight's Big Games:

  • New Orleans @ Memphis: both teams want Memphis to win. The Grizz are still fighting for home court
  • Houston @ Dallas: Houston has gone into a tailspin from a few weeks ago, Dallas needs to get the job done to help the Jazz
  • Los Angeles Clippers @ Denver: rooting for Blake Griffin makes me feel dirty here
  • Oklahoma City @ Phoenix: same thing for rooting for Russell Westbrook
  • Utah @ Portland: beating Dallas and then losing to Portland would be just so predictable, gotta win this
  • San Antonio @ Sacramento: meh
  • Los Angeles Lakers @ Golden State: Go Golden State! I guess Kobe will play in this one though.
