The basketball landscape will be dominated by the Final Four today, but the NBA is in action as well, including a crucial game for the Nuggets in the aftermath of the Danilo Gallinari injury.

While you're probably watching the NCAA Final Four, if you're more inclined to watch the NBA, you can chat about it here. Heck, you can chat about the NCAA here as well, if you like. Only four Western Conference teams are in action, but there is one game of major importance for the Clippers.

Indiana at Washington, 4:00 PM

Charlotte at Brooklyn, 4:30 PM

Philadelphia at Miami, 4:30 PM

Detroit at Minnesota, 5:00 PM

Toronto at Milwaukee, 5:30 PM

Atlanta at San Antonio, 5:30 PM

Houston at Denver, 6:00 PM

The Nuggets lost second leading scorer Danilo Gallinari to a torn ACL on Thursday. That's in addition to leading scorer Ty Lawson, who is currently out with a plantar fascia problem. The Nuggets are deep and very good at home -- can they beat a good Rockets team despite their injuries? The Clippers are now one back of the Grizzlies in the loss column, two back of the Nuggets, with renewed hope for the stretch run.
