Are there any NBA games today, Thursday 24 February?
The All-Star break is over and the NBA is back. Every game matters from here until the rest of the season as teams fight for playoff positioning.
NBA action is finally back after a week break. Players have had time to recover from the first three quarters of the season with some much needed rest, but us NBA fans are rabid for the final stretch of the season.
There are some juicy storylines coming out of the All-Star break. Harden is set to make his debut in Philadelphia soon, while Ben Simmons is inching closer to making his first start of the season in Brooklyn. Will Chris Paul and the Suns continue to scorch the competition in the West and wrap up the top seed in the conference weeks before the playoffs start? And what will happen with the Lakers? They built a super team in the offseason, but will that super team even make it to the post season?
We won’t know any of those answers until mid-April, but the NBA’s return to action will give fans the fix they need after a seemingly endless break from basketball after the All-Star weekend in Cleveland.
The NBA returns with the Pistons hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers in Detroit at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday night.
