NBA Basketball

↵

Chicago Bulls at Memphis Grizzlies, 1, ESPN: It's the second holiday after Christmas that the NBA has claimed as its own, and with football winding down it's sort of the first day all year when the common Southeastern sports fan gets to be reminded that basketball is actually happening. I've written nothing about the game that you'd think I'd be writing about right now, so please click on one of those team names for more.

↵

Sacramento Kings at Atlanta Hawks, 4, SportSouth: Can't have a King Day hoops marathon without letting King's city participate. Appreciate the schedule-makers throwing the Hawks a home game against quite possibly the NBA's worst team, too. Is Atlanta ready to endure a Hawks postseason run, or did that Falcons loss take it out of us for the winter?

Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics, 8, TNT: Eastern Conference positioning at stake in a game between two teams you cannot stand.

↵

Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles Lakers, 10:30, TNT: Same thing, but Western Conference, and you really don't mind either of these teams, no matter how much you'd like to hate the Lakers.
