Good afternoon, pepitas! I hope you're all having rip-roaring weekends (note: I have no idea what "rip-roaring" means.) A pleasantly Knicks-free slate of basketball games is about to start, so here's a thread in which you're invited to comment if you're watching along. The games and respective SB Nation blogs are as follows:

2:00: ESPN- Indiana Pacers (Indy Cornrows) vs. Orlando Magic (Orlando Pinstriped Post)

4:30: ESPN- Memphis Grizzlies (Straight Outta Vancouver) vs. Los Angeles Clippers (Clips Nation)

7:30: TNT: Oklahoma City Thunder (Welcome To Loud City) vs. Dallas Mavericks (Mavs Moneyball)

10:00: TNT: San Antonio Spurs (Pounding The Rock) vs. Utah Jazz (SLC Dunk)

Indiana-Orlando is about to tip off as I write this.

Comment along here, check out all those blogs, and please don't post photos, .gifs, illegal streams, or Wikipedia entries for Finnish politicians in the thread. Actually, you know what? These are lightly trafficked. Photos and .gifs are fine. No streams, though, and DEFINITELY no Finnish politicians.

Go team!
