In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the League has a ton of games going throughout the day. Let’s take a look at the most intriguing matchups.
Pistons @ Magic: Orlando has a dream. A dream to beat the Pistons. Unlike Mr. King’s dream, this one will probably not come to fruition anytime soon.
Bulls @ Grizzlies: Someone keep Sam Smith away from this game, please. He might just kidnap Pau Gasol.
(Also: TNT’s schedule-makers must be repeatedly punching themselves in the face for having put this game – featuring two woefully underachieving squads – on the docket.)
Nuggets @ Lakers: LA almost has to win this one, don’t they? With injuries threatening to completely derail the season, a win against an elite team like Denver would do wonders for the Lakers’ morale (to say nothing of their fans.)
