The Raptors open up at the 32 slot in the east and they get the Hawks near the "Peach Drop" as they are #1 in the east. Toronto will win the Atlantic but they need to hold off the likes of the Bulls, Wizards, and Cavs at the #2 slot. Hawks playing for keeps and we will see here in the 2nd if they are really ready to be the hunted! Biggest Game on the Menu tonight...
#Believeland (33-22, 5th East) @ #WizKidsDC (33-21, 4th East)
NBA on ESPN at 8pm ET
This might be a match up in the 2nd round in the Eastern Conference Playoffs 2015 as no one wants to be in that 4th or 5th slot. The Cavs were playing their best heading into the break and the Wizards played well enough in their motel swing before break to stay in the Top 4 in the east. Will the Cavs add Kendrick Perkins? Will the Wizards Bradley Beal be healthy coming down the back stretch?
#RedNation (36-17, 4th West) @ #TeamMFFL (36-20, 6th West)
The Rockets are well-rested heading into Big D tonight as the Mavs took it on the chin in Thunder Alley. Will Mavs newly-acquired "Big" S.T.A.T. Amare Stoudamire get some run as he tries to speed up that learning curve in Dallas? The Rockets are right in the middle of the West Happenings and they can get to that #3 seed if they can stay ahead of the Mavs n Clips. Interesting game as the Rockets struck out trying to get Suns PG Goran Dragic...now they see Rajon Rondo tonight!
#SpursFamily (34-20, 7th West) @ #DubsAllDay (42-9, 1st West)
NBA on ESPN at 1030pm ET
Spurs start the 2nd half on the toughest Planet in the Logo to date in Planet Oracle home of the "Dubs All Day" Golden State Warriors. This game means more than meets the eyes for the simple fact the Spurs with all their parts back and healthy get to test the #1 Team in the west. In turn the Warriors playing Kerr Ball gets a stern test right out the gate at home where they are 23-2 the Logo's best in 2014-15 after a home-cooked meal! This one is going NBA on ESPN for all to see...yikes!
