The best NBA games on this week’s schedule
When: Mar. 21, 7:30 p.m. EST
Where to Watch: League Pass, Bally Sports Oklahoma, Bally Sports Southern California
A Victory Wembanyama and Chet Holmgren pairing is not going to happen for the Thunder. As of Sunday Night, the Thunder occupy the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. While far from championship contention, they play a beautiful brand of basketball that keeps them within striking distance in every game.
The Clippers, on the other hand, might have sugar plum fairies dancing with NBA Championship trophies in their heads while asleep. Kawhi Leonard is playing like the person who put the Clippers in prime position to knock off the Utah Jazz and their monster regular-season point differential prior to his ACL injury.
A game that in September would not have been considered a featured matchup now has serious postseason implications with the Thunder still alive and the Clippers in play for the No. 4, 5, and 6 seed as well as the play-in.
