Another week of basketball has been completed as we inch within a week of the first half of the season being concluded and the All-Star break.
I think we can all guarantee that these guys have been waiting with bated breath for this break to occur. The three games in three nights and the four games in the span of a week have taken a toll on their bodies, and it could have directly caused a number of devastating injuries to occur to the likes of Al Horford, Andrew Bogut and Zach Randolph, who are all dealing with serious ailments.
For those that have remained in action, they look at the All-Star break as a much needed vacation. The majority of these teams will have played 35 games since December 25th, and a short weekend off of playing serious basketball is going to be greatly anticipated.
However, that doesn't mean these players are going to be overlooking next week's games. They might be looking forward to the All-Star break, but don't expect some lackadaisical efforts from players who can't wait for the vacation back home or in Orlando.
We have taken the time to set up power rankings that reflect the games taken place from February 13th to February 18th, which means you will not be seeing games that took place on Sunday, February 19th.
Let's take a look at where all 30 NBA teams stack up this week.
