A quick look at tonight’s games as we head into the regular season’s final week …
Indiana @ Washington: This is a do-or-die game for the Pacers, as a loss would signal an end to their already meager Playoff hopes.
(The ratings for this otherwise unwatchable game are expected to be a little higher than usual, as the handful of Hawks diehards on this entire planet are all expected to tune in tonight.)
Boston @ New York: The Knicks had one of their toughest practice of the season … because Donnie Walsh was in the building for the first time. They’re also giving away free food tonight to a packed house as MSG sees its final game this year.
(Gotta be honest, I’m gonna miss this circus once the season ends.)
Golden State @ Phoenix: In another must-win situation, the Warriors go for their 49th victory of the season tonight, and then must rush back to their hotel rooms and check the ticker in the hope that Denver stumbles over the next few days.
