Teams Playing 5 Games:
Denver Nuggets (8-4)
- The Nuggets continue to prove why you ALWAYS trade your superstar who is telling you he will not re-sign! Danilo Gallinari is having his best season scoring 17 points a game. We mentioned him as a breakout star this season and we hope you paid attention! A home game against the Jazz is followed by a 4 game East Coast road trip against the Bucks, 76ers, Wizards and Knicks.
- Detroit has looked awful this season, with Greg Monroe being the only thing to look forward to watching each night. We mentioned him prior to the start of the season as a breakout player. We hope you listened! A tough week lays ahead with the Warriors, Grizzlies and Trail Blazers all visiting the Palace at Auburn Hills. They travel to Houston and Minnesota in the middle of the week.
San Antonio Spurs (8-4)
- It is amazing how one team can be so good year after year, with minimal roster changes. Richard Jefferson is making (3) 3 pointers a night and Gary Neal, who is replacing the teams leading scorer Manu Ginobili, is proving that his rookie campaign was no fluke. The Spurs play 5 games this week in two different states. A home game against the Suns leads to a back to back in Florida against the Heat and Magic. They then return home to Texas to face the Kings and travel to Houston the next night to play the Rockets.
Everybody else plays 4 games except for the Celtics, Bobcats, Pacers, Heat, Bucks, Nets, Thunder, Raptors, and Wizards.
- The Indiana Pacers only play 2 games this week and both on the road!
- The Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, and Washington Wizards host 3 home games
- The Oklahoma City Thunder have 3 road games
- The Phoenix Suns, Portland Trailblazers, and Dallas Mavericks have 4 road games
- The New York Knicks have 4 home games
