The NBA is combating early work-week dejection, one Tuesday night slate of entertaining games at a time.
Monday blues often carry over into Tuesday, when you're still a day removed from hump day and four days short of the weekend. Never fear—the NBA has you covered.
Nearly 20 different teams are in action tonight. From the Miami Heat bringing their on-again, off-again regular-season act to Canada, to the Brooklyn Nets looking to prove they can win games against non-playoff teams, to the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks engaging in the battle of the mediocre, there's plenty to watch.
Even if your team isn't on the schedule tonight, this lineup is worth a look-see. Points will be scored by the Houston Rockets, hard fouls dealt out by the Indiana Pacers, simplistic offensive sets run by the New York Knicks and world domination achieved by Eric Bledsoe.
Enter weekend mode early and join almost two-thirds of the Association in some epic Tuesday night festivities.
