With March Madness looming at the end of this week, you may be looking to watch some NBA basketball as you fill out your bracket. Here are the top three NBA games you should watch this week, including Clippers vs Mavericks to start the week.
Must-See NBA Games This Week
Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks
Monday, March 15 at 9 ET, NBA League Pass and Fox Sports
Luka Dončić and the Dallas Mavericks are in the middle of a race for a playoff berth. The Los Angeles Clippers will be without Patrick Beverly, so the Dallas Mavericks will have a chance to gain ground in the Western Conference standings. LA is also playing on the second leg of a back-to-back, so both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard could be rest candidates. The most intriguing part of this matchup is that the two teams will face off again Wednesday on ESPN.
Utah Jazz vs Boston Celtics
Tuesday, March 16 at 7:30 ET, TNT
After a stellar start to the season, the Utah Jazz have gone 5-5 over their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are winners of five of their last six games. Both teams each have two All-Stars on their rosters (Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell for the Jazz and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown for the Celtics) and are in need of a statement win to begin the post-All-Star Break stretch.
Charlotte Hornets vs Denver Nuggets
Wednesday, March 17, 9 ET, NBA League Pass
LaMelo Ball has the Charlotte Hornets in the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2015-16. Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets are 7-3 over their last 10 games, and Nikola Jokić is continuing to flirt with averaging a triple-double in his NBA MVP campaign. Both teams need a win to keep pace in the their respective conferences.
