Memphis at Detroit 7:00 PM ET
It is sinking in to five-time All-Star Blake Griffin that he now is a member of the Detroit Pistons. Griffin is expected to make his Detroit debut against the visiting Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday after being acquired earlier in the week from the Los Angeles Clippers in a stunning blockbuster trade.
Toronto at Washington 7:00 PM ET
The Washington Wizards played inspired basketball in their first game since learning that All-Star point guard John Wall would miss up to two months following knee surgery. They will try to knock off another top-notch opponent when they host the Toronto Raptors in the finale of a two-game homestand on Thursday.
Milwaukee at Minnesota 8:00 PM ET
The road has proven difficult for the Minnesota Timberwolves of late, but home is still mighty friendly. The Timberwolves will try to push their home winning streak to 11 straight when they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.
Houston at San Antonio 8:00 PM ET
James Harden is coming for his first NBA MVP Award, and he's not being subtle about it. Harden became the first player in NBA history to record a 60-point triple-double in a win over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday and will try to follow that up against a tougher opponent when the Rockets visit the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.
Oklahoma City at Denver 10:30 PM ET
The Oklahoma City Thunder had an eight-game losing streak come to an end with a 102-96 loss at the Washington Wizards on Tuesday, falling to 1-1 since losing defensive ace Andre Roberson for the remainder of the season. The Thunder will try to get back in the win column when the road trip skips west with a visit to the Denver Nuggets.
