Worthy of Your Attention

by Marcel Mutoni

Pistons @ Celtics: Following his one-game suspension, Kevin Garnett steps back on the floor just in time. The Pistons, playing on back-to-back nights, will look to spoil KG’s return in Beantown.

Detroit is playing extremely well of late, having won four of their last five (including satisfying victories against the Lakers and Cavs). This will also be the Pistons’ chance at revenge after the demoralizing Boston win in Detroit last Sunday.

Lakers @ Suns: Here we go again. The nauseating Shaq-Kobe-Phil storyline will be at the forefront again tonight, and as usual, there’s a little something extra prior to game time.

Shaquille O’Neal was forced to clarify remarks (made in the preseason) about him potentially returning to the Lakers when he becomes a free agent in 2010. Wouldn’t that be something?

Oh, right…the game. All eyes will be on the matchups down low: Shaq and Amare vs. Bynum and Gasol. That should be fun to observe. Though I certainly don’t expect the Lakers to have as easy a time with the Suns as they did last year, tonight would be a good time to send an early-season message.

    kobe, tell me how my … taste

  • Cizzo

    I don’t believe in the Suns at all, it will be more likely to be funny rather than competitive when the Lakers get done smashing them!!

    Those sound like fantastic games. Bust out the popcorn!

    Ill miss all games tonights the anniversary for my lady and myself.

  • ballinpro24

    LAKERS ALL THE WAY!! Even if Shaq comes back to Hollywood there is no place for him. by that time bynum will be an all star and kobe will be at the ending peak of his career. unless he wants to be a bench warmer.

    cant wait

    I scooped Shaq as an FA in my league after Horford got hurt. He should be motivated tonight, I need him to get double digit boards. Rooting for Shaq is a strange experience for me. I’m not sure I like it.

  • john

    ya kobe gonna say shaq how my ass taste wen he dunks on him

  • ciolkstar

    Detroit has 2 of the most impressive wins of any team this season (against LA and CLE)and I see Sheed and AI having big nights tonight, regardless of the outcome. The Celtics really need Rondo to be more aggessive on offense.

  • ciolkstar

    Kobe is wack. So are his fans.

    Very nice Shia. Well played.

    I find it to be quite interesting that it took this long for someone to mention DVR. Thank you albie1kenobi.

  • http://www.ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Allenp

    Rondo will have a good game. Lots of pick and rolls involving Iverson.

  • rob stewart

    @ B.Long If you call anyone who uses the word wack wack doesn’t that make you wack as well? Dang, I guess that makes me wack too.
