The Week in Tank: Upcoming games

This week's look at lottery teams facing off for the right not to win.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Previously, Detroit Bad Boys explored the philosophical, moral and logical aspects of tanking as well as a bird's eye view of the tanking landscape for the rest of the season. Now, we'll simply supply a list of games to look out for during the upcoming week.

For simplicity's sake, I've limited this list to games between teams that are both in the tanking battleground. Maybe bad teams get lucky and beat an actual good team but that's not very likely.
