It's amazing how much action the NBA packs into the shortest month on the calendar. All-Star weekend and the trade deadline contributed plenty of intrigue to February 2013 in the Association.
But, of course, the real excitement has stemmed from the meaningful action that's taken place on courts across North America. Four teams—the Miami Heat, the San Antonio Spurs, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers—will finish the month with at least 40 wins and, most likely, a guarantee on a winning season, at the very least.
There's been plenty of rustling in the standings beneath the elite in the meantime. The Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks are locked in a battle for the second seed in the Eastern Conference, the Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls aren't all that far behind and, out West, the Los Angeles Lakers are carefully positioning themselves to snag a postseason spot from one of the three among the Utah Jazz, the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors.
