What NBA Games Are Playing Tonight?
The NBA season is in full swing and there are plenty of games to choose from tonight. Here is a rundown of what you can expect to see on the hardwood.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking to keep their winning streak alive as they take on the Charlotte Hornets. The Cavs are coming off of a big win against the Boston Celtics, and they will look to continue their momentum against a Hornets team that has been struggling as of late. This should be a great game to watch, and it will tip off at 7:00 pm EST.
Also at 7:00 pm EST, the Indiana Pacers will take on the Detroit Pistons. Both teams are currently sitting near the bottom of their respective conference standings, but that doesn’t mean that this game will be any less competitive. The Pacers have been playing better as of late, and they will look to take advantage of a Pistons team that has been struggling to find its groove.
Later in the night, the San Antonio Spurs will take on the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs are currently one of the best teams in the Western Conference, and they will be looking to add another win to their total against a Clippers team that has been up-and-down all season long. This game will tip off at 9:30 pm EST.

Houston Rockets (13-4) vs. Sacramento Kings (7-10)
The Rockets are one of the best teams in the NBA and are looking to extend their winning streak to five games. The Kings have improved since last season but are still struggling to find consistency. This should be a good game with the Rockets coming out on top.
Portland Trail Blazers (11-6) vs. San Antonio Spurs (9-7)
The Trail Blazers have been playing well recently, winning four of their last five games. The Spurs have also been playing better as of late, but they will be without Kawhi Leonard tonight. This will be a close game, but the Trail Blazers should come out with the victory.
