With the season winding down and less than 30 games remaining for each team, we are beginning to get a clearer picture of how the NBA season is shaping up.
We're getting an idea of who the contenders and pretenders are, and the final portion of the season will give us a chance to see which teams will have home-court advantage and which ones will potentially have to win a Game 7 on the road in the playoffs to advance.
We will find out whether or not Derrick Rose or LeBron James, or someone else for that matter, is going to be this year's Most Valuable Player.
We will see if teams like Orlando and the L.A. Lakers can regain their footing and make another run to the NBA Finals.
The tension is building and the climax is slowly approaching.
Before long, the playoffs will be here.
