Miami Heat at Indiana Pacers
There's not much going on in the Eastern Conference outside of the Heat and Pacers, which makes Tuesday night's matchup in Indiana a must-watch. The Pacers came close to knocking off the Heat in last season's playoffs, and the way they're playing this season, it's not clear that Miami would have the home-court advantage this time around. Paul George might even be able to challenge LeBron James' MVP hegemony -- although, as in all things NBA pre-New Year's Day, it's still quite early.

Griffin simply hasn't been his usual self this year, with many blaming lingering injuries for his struggles. Cousins is a proven backup and could be a respectable steward of the team while Griffin heals, but Griffin is at a point in his career where he needs as much on-field experience as possible.

Who wins NFC North? NFC East?
Now things are interesting. Actually, they already were interesting. And they remain that way, after the Chicago Bears routed the Dallas Cowboys in what seemed like an evenly matched game between two playoff-hungry teams. Not so much. This puts Chicago in a tie for NFC North supremacy with the Detroit Lions, with the Green Bay Packers just half a game behind. The Cowboys, meanwhile, must scramble to catch the Philadelphia Eagles -- now one game up -- although the two teams do meet on the final day of the season, and Dallas beat Philly in their first matchup ...
