This was a night for the patient, marathon NBA junkie. There were only five games on the Tuesday slate in the NBA, and the best two were the first (Minnesota Timberwolves-Washington Wizards) and the last (Phoenix Suns-Sacramento Kings).
In between those two exciting slabs of basketball action was a hodgepodge of blowouts, mismatches and whatever it is the New York Knicks are doing these days.
Still, there were a few interesting takeaways. Two contenders are building steam, while one wannabe contender is showing a disturbing flaw.
Let's get to Tuesday night's action!
