NBA Open Thread: Three Games Tonight Headlined by Clippers at Heat

USA TODAY Sports

A minimal Thursday night slate in the NBA, but a high profile early season matchup headlines.

Three games on the NBA slate tonight, headlined by the offensive juggernaut that is the Los Angeles Clippers visiting the Miami Heat. Later, Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets face the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time this year. A matchup of arguably the two best players in the NBA. That's worth watching, especially because they only face off twice a year.
