Worthy of Your Attention

by Marcel Mutoni

Suggested games for you to watch while you await Episode 4 of The Wire on Sunday night …

Suns @ Cavs: Phoenx is playing well of late, but can they handle an even more determined LeBron on the road?

(As a general rule of thumb, when two of the five best players in the whole damn League square off, it’s probably a good idea to tune in.)

Hornets @ Spurs: This is the kind of game that lets us know if New Orleans is for real, for real. Also: the Paul/Parker matchup alone is reason enough to at least check this one out.

Celtics @ Magic; Cavs @ Lakers: With the NFL taking a wholly unnecessary week off before the Superbowl, the NBA has blessed us with two intriguing matchups.

National TV, superstars all over the place, Celtics looking one of their rare losses this season, and of course, LeBron vs. Kobe. Good times.
