Despite a dearth of key matchups with crucial playoff implications, the smorgasbord of games the NBA offered on Tuesday was replete with noteworthy (if not downright eye-popping) results.
There was the Miami Heat's push for their 19th straight win. There was Dwight Howard's hack-heavy return to Orlando. There were shocking results between the Boston Celtics and the Charlotte Bobcats, and between the San Antonio Spurs and the Minnesota Timberwolves, that weren't quite so shocking upon further review. There was the biannual Lopez family reunion, as well as another edition of John Wall vs. Kyrie Irving that was absent one of the two young stars.
Not to mention the Dallas Mavericks' late-season push for a playoff revival and Zach Randolph's latest return to Rip City.
What, then, did we learn about the Association on this, the second Tuesday of March?
