NBA is finally back, after 5 days of pause and the All star weekend. Kevin Love is a new 3pt champion, Jeremy Evans is the new slam dunk champ, KD is the best player right now, and Charles Barkley won another battle against Shaq.
Tonight we have some very interesting games, starting off Cavs vs. Celtics. Kyrie Irving had a monster game on Rising Stars Challenge shooting 8/8 from 3pt range. Rondo is finally back after missing last two games and it's going to be a great matchup. Cavs are playing without Anderson Varejao, who had 20-20 game against Celtics last month and that is a huge handicap for the Cavs. Bass is back for the C's and he could be key in this game.
I expect Celtics to win because Cavs are breathing in their neck with just 1.5 games behind for that 8th spot in the East.
Another great game tonight could be Clippers vs. Wolves. Griffin-Love matchup is always great to watch, Paul-Rubio will be also interesting, but I'm looking forward to Jordan-Pekovic matchup as well. Pekovic is going 20-10 every game and he is one of the strongest centers in the league. It's going to be interesting to see how can Jordan stop him.
