The evening of Wednesday, Feb. 13, was the last full slate of games before the All-Star break. And, boy, it did not disappoint.
A pair of All-Stars, LeBron James of the Miami Heat and James Harden of the Houston Rockets, willed their teams to victory at the buzzer. Another All-Star, Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks, came up just short, as his Knicks stumbled yet again.
The Dallas Mavericks bounced back from a humiliating loss to take out the powerhouse Indiana Pacers, while the Portland Trail Blazers continued their midseason swoon.
