We Tell You What To Watch: Week of March 10-15

Gotta apologize for the lack of output the last week, but the flu is a bitch. Seriously, I feel and look like this. As I was drifting in and out of consciousness on the couch yesterday it occurred to me that I still couldn't be happier because football and baseball are out of season, leaving nothing but basketball to dominate the airwaves. Also, Elisha Cuthbert helps too.

Without further ado, here's the top three games of the week!

3) Robert Johnsons at Rockets (Friday, March 14th)

I don't think Houston has realized that it is not supposed to win anymore and that Tracy McGrady should be whining about taking time off to deal with his feelings again. They'll likely be riding a surreal 20-game win streak coming into Friday. Currently, the Robert Johnsons (aka BOBcats) are on a 5-game win streak of their own after giving more playing time to younger players who give a damn. Something has got to give.

2) Warriors at Suns (Thursday, March 13th, TNT)

After yesterday's win, everyone's quickly saying that the acquisition of Shaq isn't looking so bad after all. All that talk will go to hell after this game. Either Shaq's going to relegated to the bench or his fat ass will be lumbering minutes behind every play. Phoenix runs its offense quickly, but the backcourt of Baron Davis and Monte Ellis is even quicker. The Warriors are certainly gearing up for another post-season run after winning 6 of their last 7. Depending on your perspective and rooting interests, this will be a car crash or a delight.

1) Spurs at Hornets (Wednesday, March 12th)

As evidenced by losses against Washington and Houston, the Hornets have been sputtering since David West went down with a sprained ankle. West is scheduled to return on Wednesday and the team is hoping to regain its rhythm before they end up with a crappy seeding. Too bad their up against Manu, the best player ever to wear braces.
