San Antonio vs. Detroit
This probably isn't a surprise to anyone, but The San Antonio Spurs have the best record in the NBA. Anchored by future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan and Tony Parker the Spurs seem to have things on cruise control going into the All Star break. They are currently on a 11 game winning streak and I don't see the Detroit Pistons interrupting their flow tonight. The Spurs will win big.
Houston vs. Portland
When the Houston Rockets play the Portland Trailblazers tonight 8th place in the Western conference is on the line. Both teams are playing .500 ball over the last 10 games so there's been no separation between the two. James Harden will give you his usual 25 or so, but the Rockets need Jeremy Lin to step up and contribute as well. This game will be close, but I think the Rockets will pull it out down the stretch.
