The Best Games of the Week – 1/5 – 1/11

The basketball and hockey regular seasons are well underway. With plenty of exciting matchups coming in the first week of January, 2014 is shaping up to be a great year in the world of sports.

Boston Celtics @ Los Angeles Clippers, Jan. 8

The Celtics will make the trip to Los Angeles to play the Clippers in the Staples Center Jan. 8. Doc Rivers was recently the head coach of the Celtics until he transferred over to L.A. at the end of the last season. Clippers star Blake Griffin will be a threat to the Celtics, but might have difficulty with a Boston team that ranked 5th in the league for points allowed around Christmas time. Hopefully Santa was able to find Los Angeles Clippers tickets for you in time for this matchup.

Miami Heat @ New York Knicks, Jan. 9

The Miami Heat will travel to New York to take on the Knicks Jan. 9. New York will have to find a way to shut down the James-Bosh-Wade trifecta that has been responsible for Miami winning two straight national championships. However, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler might know how to shut down a successful Miami offense given their experience with James in the 2012 Summer Olympics. Fans of Anthony will want to find tickets to the New York Knicks this season because he’ll become a free agent by the season’s end.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Los Angeles Clippers, Jan. 10

NBA fans will have the chance to see a good old fashioned hometown rumble when the Lakers and Clippers, L.A.’s only two teams, go head-to-head Jan. 10. Doc Rivers, who was once head coach of the Lakers’ other archrivals, the Boston Celtics, said he “can’t wait” to bring back the Orange County rivalry. Southern California residents will surely want to get their Los Angeles Clippers tickets as soon as possible.

San Jose Sharks @ Chicago Blackhawks, Jan. 5
