Friday March 26 Western Conference Games:

Utah Jazz @ Indiana Pacers-Any road game is a tough game, right? Indiana (26-46) has won a season-high six straight at home and four in a row overall

Denver Nuggets @ Toronto Raptors-The Nuggets again go to work without their fearless leader, George Karl. So far, the results haven't been so hot.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Oklahoma City-LA has owned the Thunder this year, going 3-0 thus far.

Cleveland Cavaliers @ San Antonio Spurs-The Cavs are 22-6 vs. the WC. A loss drops the poor Spurs into the 8th spot

New York Knicks @ Phoenix Suns-The Knicks are dangerous, very dangerous. Check back in a few for the game preview.
