Sure Not Now

TV: SN1

Location: TD Garden, Boston, MA

After a slow start, the Celtics have started to gain some momentum. They just recorded their largest victory in franchise history, beating the Chicago Bulls by 56 points and have won five games in a row. They'll take on Anthony Davis, who's playing at another level this season averaging 27.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 2.9 blocks and 1.5 steals per game.

Utah Jazz at Oklahoma City Thunder [8:00 p.m.]

TV: TSN2

Location: Chesepeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK

This is a rematch of the first round Western Conference playoffs a season ago, where Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz stunned Russell Westbrook and the Thunder. This is their first matchup since Utah eliminated OKC in six games, so Westbrook, George and co. will be out for revenge.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Golden State Warriors [10:30 p.m.]

TV: TSN2

Location: Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA

With Stephen Curry back in the lineup, the Warriors have won three consecutive games after losing to the Pistons in Curry's first game back. The last time these two teams met, Jimmy Butler was still a member of the Timberwolves. The Warriors defeated Minnesota behind a combined 83 points from Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, while Andrew Wiggins led the way in that game for the Timberwolves with 22 points.

Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers [10:30 p.m.]

TV: SN1

Location: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA

This game will have an extreme emotional aspect to it, being the last time that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will share the court in their careers. Wade and LeBron are exactly 15-15 against eachother all-time, so this game will act as a rubber match in who will take their career series. This willbe one you will not want to miss in the final game between two of the greatest players of this generation.

Tuesday, Dec. 11 - two games

Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets [8:00 p.m.]

TV: TSN1

Location: Toyota Center, Houston, TX

The Rockets struggles have continued, losing three games in a row with the second-to-worst record in the Western Conferece. As for the Trail Blazers, they have strung together a pair of wins but are only in seventh in the grueling West. The last time these teams met this season, Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic scored 22 points apiece to give the Blazers the edge over the James Harden-less Rockets.

Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers [10:30 p.m.]

TV: SN1 / SNE / SNO / SNP

Radio: SN 590

Location: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA

This is the first game of a tough four game road trip for the Raptors. They'll take on the Clippers, who boast one of the top records in the NBA this season. This is also a head-to-head matchup between MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard and the Western Conference's November Player of the Month, Tobias Harris, who has been extremely impressive the season averaging a team-high 21.0 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.

Wednesday, Dec. 12 - three games

Boston Celtics at Washington Wizards [7:00 p.m.]

TV: SN1

Location: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.

There is no love lost between these two Eastern Conference rivals, dating back to the Isaiah Thomas days in Boston. This will be fun to watch as these two teams battle it out for the first time this season and you'll get to see twin brothers Marcus and Markieff Morris go at it all game long.

Oklahoma City Thunder at New Orleans Pelicans [8:00 p.m.]

TV: TSN1 / 5 & RDS2

Location: SmoothieKing Center, New Orleans, LA

The Thunder got the best of the Pelicans in their first meeting this season behind a big games from Dennis Schroder and Paul George, scoring 22 and 23 points, respectively. They held Anthony Davis to 20 points and eight rebounds to ultimately decide the outcome of the game, but Jrue Holiday had a monster game with 22 points and 14 assists.

Toronto Raptors at Golden State Warriors [10:30 p.m.]

TV: TSN1 / 4 / 5 & RDS2

Radio: TSN 1050

Location: Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA

This acts as a rematch of arguably the best game of the NBA season so far. Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard battled it out in an overtime win for the Raptors, but this time around, Stephen Curry will be active. This could be the final matchup between these two teams this season, unless this is a preview of the 2019 NBA Finals.

Thursday, Dec. 13 - three games

Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets [8:00 p.m.]

TV: TSN5

Location: Toyota Center, Houston, TX

The Lakers are starting to click behind superstar LeBron James and they're looking like a team that could contend in the West. James Harden dropped 36 points on them in their first meeting to go with 28 points from Chris Paul, giving the Rockets the victory. Houston could use a big win over a team like the Lakers to get things trending in the right direction.

Los Angeles Clippers at San Antonio Spurs [8:30 p.m.]

TV: NBA TV Canada

Location: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX

In their first meeting this season, DeMar DeRozan played stellar dropping 34 points, 6 rebounds and five assists but the Clippers used a team effort to get the win. They had five different players in double-figures headlined by Lou Williams' 23 points off the bench.

Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns [10:30 p.m.]

TV: TSN5

Location: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ

The Suns took the first meeting against the Mavericks on opening night, spoiling Luka Doncic's NBA debut. Doncic and DeAndre Ayton are certainly the focal point of this matchup, being the top two performers of this draft class so far. You can surely bet that Doncic will bring it in this one to prove to the Suns that they may have made a mistake passing on him in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Friday, Dec. 14 - four games

Atlanta Hawks at Boston Celtics [7:00 p.m.]

TV: NBA TV Canada

Location: TD Garden, Boston, MA

The young Hawks have struggled through the first 25-or-so games this season but get a huge boost of help with the return of 2018 All-Rookie Second Team member John Collins. Collins scored a career-high 30 points last weekend to defeat the Denver Nuggets and it will be fun to see him and Trae Young matched up against Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum.

Indiana Pacers at Philadelphia 76ers [7:30 p.m.]

TV: TSN1 / 4

Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA

Things have gone smoothly in Philadelphia since the Jimmy Butler trade, boasting a 9-3 record since acquiring the all-star guard (as of Dec. 9). In the first meeting between the Sixers and Pacers this season, Philly picked up the win on a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double from Joel Embiid and a near triple-double for Ben Simmons. Victor Oladipo gave them everything he had, scoring 36 points, though he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets [10:00 p.m.]

TV: TSN1 / 4

Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, CO

The Nuggets defeated the Thunder a few weeks ago when Jamal Murray scored 22 points to go with eight rebounds and eight assists. Both Canadians stepped up in that win, with Trey Lyles adding 16 points off the bench for Denver. Russell Westbrook posted a triple-double, but could not overcome his poor shooting night to lead the Thunder to victory.

Toronto Raptors at Portland Trail Blazers [10:00 p.m.]

TV: SN1 / SNE / SNO / SNP

Radio: SN 590

Location: Moda Center, Portland, OR

Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum will have to be at their best if they're going to knock off the top team in the NBA. Kyle Lowry and Danny Green will have to lock in on the defensive end in this one, but the Blazers will have to find an answer for Kawhi Leonard. It's likely they'll go with Al-Farouq Aminu and Moe Harkless to try and slow down the Raptors star forward.

Saturday, Dec. 15 - two games

Utah Jazz at Orlando Magic [5:00 p.m.]

TV: NBA TV Canada

Location: Amway Center, Orlando, FL

The Jazz have yet to play the Orlando Magic this season. The matchup that sticks out in this one is Rudy Gobert, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, going toe-to-toe with the No. 6 overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, Mo Bamba. Bamba, who is already a solid shot blocker, will have a thing or two to learn from Gobert.

Los Angeles Clippers at Oklahoma City Thunder [9:00 p.m.]

TV: NBA TV Canada

Location: Chesepeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK

This is already the third matchup between the Thunder and the Clippers this season. The Clippers took the first game in LA when the Thunder were without Russell Westbrook. Westbrook and OKC got their revenge in the second contest behind 32 points apiece from Russ and Paul George.

Sunday, Dec. 16 - two games

New York Knicks at Indiana Pacers [3:30 p.m.]

TV: NBA TV Canada

Location: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN

The last time these two teams met it was a nationally televised game where the Pacers pulled off the win on a massive night from Domantas Sabonis, scoring 30 points off the bench. Tim Hardaway Jr. also put on a show with a 37-point night to keep the Knicks in the game and if Oladipo were to miss this contest, you could see Hardaway Jr. post a similar performance in this one.

Toronto Raptors at Denver Nuggets

TV: TSN2

Radio: TSN 1050

Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, CO

Just last week the Nuggets fought off a comeback from the Raptors in a 106-103 win in Toronto. Nikola Jokic was incredible in that game with a triple-double of 23 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds and Jamal Murray added 21 points in his home country. Kawhi Leonard's 27 points wasn't enough to earn the win in that contest but the Raptors will be eager to avenge a close loss to one of the league's top teams.
