    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    LaMarcus Aldridge was good in the first half Thursday night, scoring 14 points but needing 14 shots to get there.

    The Denver Nuggets are making 69.9 percent of their free throws. Which is not good, even if there are two teams that are worse (Charlotte and Detroit, thank you Andre Drummond).
