No time for small talk; straight to the games you need in your life this weekend…

Pistons @ Lakers: Kwame returneth to the City of Angels, as a starter no less. Cake for everyone!

(I’m sure the fans will give Brown a nice hand as they recall all of the beautiful moments he provided for them as a Laker.)

Warriors @ Clippers: It would be perfectly understandable if they canceled the game, and just gave everyone some time to weep softly.

New Orleans @ Houston
: After getting off to a blazing start, the Hornets have crashed back to Earth. They’ll be looking to right the ship in Houston, which isn’t a bad place to start. The Rockets will be playing the second of a tough back-to-back.

Heat at Raptors: I only point this one out because, if you happen to live in Ontario (where, for the uninitiated, the Raptors practice their trade), the game might not be visible to you unless you’ve purchase a ticket.

For you see, the endlessly maddening cat fight between Canadian TV networks for the rights to show NBA games trudges forward. Fun.

Enjoy the games everyone.
