Definitive Guide to Thunder vs. Blazers and Wednesday's NBA Action

Go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back.

On second thought, wait until you know you're completely alone to make that move. You might have grandiose visions of one day trending on Twitter, but this is not the day nor the reason.

Why the recommendation for some self love? Because you made it.

It's not the end of the workweek, but Hump Day is close enough. After a turkey-infused, football-laced long weekend, the first few days back in the office can be a real drag.

But the Association, and less importantly, your employer, appreciates the effort. Consider the NBA's eight-game slate on Wednesday as a token of that appreciation.

Statements will be made tonight.

The Los Angeles Clippers will try to make the A-Town a Doc Rivers-approved Lob City. The Minnesota Timberwolves will have the chance to convince Kevin Love of their winning ways when the San Antonio Spurs come to town. The Portland Trail Blazers-Oklahoma City Thunder clash might not have started the season on your radar, but it's there now—flashing lights, incessant beeps and all.

So clear off the couch, hold off on that holiday shopping and enjoy everything the basketball gods have to offer.

Then, in the privacy of your own home, feel free to start back-tapping away.
