Sunday NBA schedule: Clippers vs. Celtics headline light Super Bowl Sunday slate

Jared Wickerham

There are three afternoon games across the Association on Sunday. Let's check them out.

The sports schedule on Super Bowl Sunday is always light. This weekend, there will be just three NBA games on Sunday to keep you occupied.

At 1 p.m. ET on NBATV, the depleted Boston Celtics will take on Blake Griffin and the Clippers. With no Rajon Rondo or Jared Sullinger, it's tough to imagine Boston pulling the upset, even with the home crowd on their side. Los Angeles has really hit the skids in recent weeks, going 2-5 since Jan. 25. Look for Chris Paul to try and set the tone early on Sunday.

Also at 1 p.m. is a battle between the Lakers and Pistons. L.A. has been searching for consistency in recent weeks, and they're starting to play a bit better, even with Dwight Howard sidelined. The Pistons have been pretty mediocre all year, though they are 13-12 at home. This game will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit.

The last game of the day features the Heat heading into Toronto to take on Rudy Gay and the Raptors. Gay scored 20 points in his debut on Saturday in a big win over the Clippers. Look for LeBron James and co. to have a big day offensively against Toronto, who rank 22nd in the league in scoring defense. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m. ET.
