A few home-and-home games are being played this week. Brooklyn starts the week with a home-and-home on Tuesday against Milwaukee and Indiana plays the first home game in a set against the Pistons. Tough scheduling for those four teams, who may have empty gas tanks by the end of the week.
The Grizzlies first three games this week are against Detroit, Toronto, and Orlando respectively. Three young bigs (Jonas Valanciunas, Greg Monroe, and Nikola Vucevic) have a tough assignment against Marc Gasol.
Cleveland has only three games, and Kyrie Irving participated in all three days of All-Star weekend. I wouldn’t look too far into that, as the three-point shootout is basically what he would do on an off-day anyways.
Remember, the Utah Jazz and L.A Clippers play only two games this week.
