Monday's NBA Guide: LeBron vs. Wade

FanHouse's NBA Guide gives you a daily look at all the games that matter ... and some that don't.

Cleveland at Miami,
7:30PM ET

When the NBA's top two scorers go head-to-head, it's must-see TV. So make sure you tune in to ... um ... let me find it ... okay, looks like the schedule makers missed this one.

LeBron James will indeed be facing Dwyane Wade this evening, but to watch it you'll need to have the NBA's League Pass package. I guess no one believed that Wade 2.0 would truly be this awesome, and he's arguably coming off one of the best weeks of his career heading into tonight's showdown with LeBron.

Wade put up a career high 50 points in a (20-point) loss to the Magic, then followed that up by dishing out a career best 16 assists in a win over the Pistons. Sharing the ball, FTW.

Meanwhile, LeBron and the Cavs are still doing their thing, hanging out at the top of the Eastern Conference standings. With Ben Wallace out of the lineup for the Cavs, they take a big hit on their interior defense, and Miami doesn't have the personnel to stop James either. Both players should be able to do what they wish offensively, which should make this one a pretty special matchup.

Atlanta at Washington, 7PM ET

The Hawks are coming off of a tough one-point home loss at the hands of LeBron James and the East-leading Cavaliers, and now have to muster the motivation less than 24 hours later to travel to D.C. to take on the Wizards, who have won only 14 games all season? Something tells me this one will be close, at least for a while.

San Antonio at L.A. Clippers, 10:30 PM ET

The Clippers did beat the Celtics last week. I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

New Orleans at Philadelphia, 7PM ET
Dallas at Oklahoma City, 8PM ET
