Houston @ New Jersey: Devin Harris is one of the funnest players to watch in the Association today, and according to his former teammate, Jason Terry, he doesn’t have any choice but to be spectacular on a nightly basis:
“He (Devin Harris) has to play like that for them to win,” Mavs guard Jason Terry sniffed. “When he played with us, we needed him to do it differently. But for them to win, he has to do that — every night. If he doesn’t get 30 or 40 points, that team doesn’t win, period. They can’t beat nobody.”
What’s with everyone in Dallas dissing New Jersey?
Portland @ Denver: The Nuggets are struggling – they’ve lost three in a row for the first time all year long – and George Karl still refuses to bring J.R. Smith off the bench. Because that would make far too much sense, you see.
Lakers @ Grizzlies: Kobe vs Mayo. That should be fun to watch, as OJ goes up against his idol. Oh, and the Lakers have that ugly little two-game losing streak to worry about.
