Morning, NBA fans!
We have arrived at humpday, meaning for most of us our workweek is just about halfway done. The NBA has also arrived at the hump – the All-Star Break, that is. Between tonight and tomorrow night, teams around the NBA will be playing their final game before All-Star Weekend takes place down in New Orleans, giving all of the teams and most of the players a much-needed break from the action.
Because of that, you can expect a flurry of games tonight, with 13 scheduled. Get your game previews here. [NBA.com]
