Despite the front office silliness, the Kings are having success on the court. Key youngsters are demonstrating real and meaningful progress. Sactown should be nothing but 100% fun right now. Can they get back to that and sustain it? The Rockets are playing back to their own level of expectations. But there are still important depth issues. Now that they are out of the running for Jimmy Butler, what’s next? The Pacers have been a little up and down but from a record standpoint they are in good shape. Is Tyreke Evans helping? Is Sabonis playing enough? The Jazz are up and down but holding up OK in the standings. What is the outlook for them?
All of this and more.
