Saturday's NBAction open thread

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

As we wait for the Clippers to tip off against the Wizards at 7:30, here are the other NBA games going on tonight.

The Clippers are in the last game tonight, but there are seven others on the slate tonight. There's nothing on true national TV, but if your cable system gets WGN Chicago as many do, then you can watch the Wall Street showdown, the (Grizzly) Bears versus the Bulls.

Sacramento at Charlotte, 4:00 PM

San Antonio at Atlanta, 4:00 PM

Memphis at Chicago, 5:00 PM, WGN

Golden State at New Orleans, 5:00 PM

Houston at Minnesota, 5:00 PM

Cleveland at Utah, 6:00 PM

Milwaukee at Portland, 7:00 PM

Washington at LA Clippers, 7:30 PM, Prime Ticket (of course)

In addition to the Grizzlies, who have a tough game in Chicago, the Spurs are on the road in Atlanta. Then again, the Hawks are 2-7 in their last nine and just lost Lou Williams for the season, so the Clippers probably shouldn't be expecting a lot of help from the Hawks.

The Pacific Division race is getting less and less race-like lately, with the Clippers now seven games ahead of Golden State. The Warriors have lost five of six since they blew out the Clippers a couple of weeks ago, and it could get worse. Golden State is in New Orleans tonight, and the Hornicans have been as surprisingly hot as the Dubs have been cold -- after that, GSW has the Clippers and the Thunder. The Clippers could conceivably have a 10 game division lead by Thursday.
