First team to 40 wins by beating the Nets as the Spurs are now 2-1 on a nine-game rodeo road trip. The Spurs notched a win after Tony Parker’s 31 points couldn't stop the Pistons from ending the Spurs' winning streak that had reached 12 games. (Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images)

Denver Nuggets (33-19)
Denver Nuggets (33-19)
The Nuggets are fun to watch and have gone 9-2 in their last eleven games, but lack of a go-to scorer who can draw double teams and fouls will hurt in the playoffs. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)
Los Angeles Clippers (36-17)
Los Angeles Clippers (36-17)
Finally, the entire team is suited up, but only for a short period of time as Caron Butler left Sunday’s Knicks game injured. Nonetheless, the Clippers pulled out a win in the Garden and may be back on track with Chris Paul’s return. (Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images)
New York Knicks (32-17)
New York Knicks (32-17)
Carmelo Anthony couldn’t do it alone against the Clippers despite his 42 points. The Knicks are in need of a clear second scoring option. (Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images)
Memphis Grizzlies (32-18)
Memphis Grizzlies (32-18)
Despite the trade of Rudy Gay, rumors persist about a Zach Randolph trade. Marc Gasol has officially surpassed his older brother Pau as the more desirable Gasol player. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
Indiana Pacers (31-20)
Indiana Pacers (31-20)
The Pacers beat the Bulls 111-101 and are looking for Danny Granger to make his season debut this week. A surprise loss to the Raptors ended their fifteen-game home-winning streak. (Photo by Ron Hoskins/NBAE via Getty Images)
Chicago Bulls (30-20)
Chicago Bulls (30-20)
Joakim Noah returned from a foot injury, but could still miss the All-Star game due to that injury - if the league does not force him to go. His return helped to defeat the Jazz on the road. (Photo by Melissa Majchrzak/NBAE via Getty Images)
Golden State Warriors (31-21)
Golden State Warriors (31-21)
Andrew Bogut, although he just returned after missing the start of the season, is out again with an injured ankle and the Warriors are on a four-game losing streak. (Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Getty Images)
Boston Celtics (27-23)

Who needs Rajon Rondo? C’s are on a seven-game winning streak without their all-star point guard. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)
Brooklyn Nets (29-22)
Brooklyn Nets (29-22)
The Nets were handled by the Wizards (89-74) and manhandled by the Spurs (111-86). Kris Humphries is on the trading block for more perimeter shooting in possibly Ben Gordon or a versatile Josh Smith, as his role has been taken over by Reggie Evans as the rugged rebounding four.

Houston Rockets (28-25)
Houston Rockets (28-25)
The Rockets bombed the Warriors with a season NBA-high 140 points and tied the record for threes made with 23. But, the Rockets can’t get on a sustained run with bad losses - such as blowing a big lead to the Kings. (Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Getty Images)
Utah Jazz (28-24)
Utah Jazz (28-24)
Al Jefferson, despite, or maybe because of trade rumors to the Spurs, is playing quite well as who wouldn’t want to go from 7th to 1st place with a legitimate shot to play for a ring. (Photo by Melissa Majchrzak/NBAE via Getty Images)
Atlanta Hawks (27-22)
Atlanta Hawks (27-22)
Guaranteed: Josh Smith will be traded before the trade deadline in two weeks. (Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via Getty Images)

Los Angeles Lakers (24-28)
Los Angeles Lakers (24-28)
Pau Gasol is out for 4-6 weeks with strained plantar fasciitis and that puts even more doubt about the Lakers' playoff hopes. Earl Clark’s play is almost the only good thing about the season. (Photo by Kent Smith/NBAE via Getty Images)
Portland Trail Blazers (25-26)
Portland Trail Blazers (25-26)
The Blazers have gone 1-3 on a six-game road trip, including a bad loss to the Magic. Poor defense has been the issue - giving up 110 to the Magic. (Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images)
Dallas Mavericks (22-28)

Detroit Pistons (20-32)
Detroit Pistons (20-32)

Cleveland Cavaliers (16-35)
Cleveland Cavaliers (16-35)
Cavs are eying to sign much maligned and injured center Greg Oden. He's got a long way to go, but the native Ohioan gets a chance to add to a team on the rise.(Photo by David Liam Kyle/NBAE via Getty Images)

Sacramento Kings (19-33)
Sacramento Kings (19-33)
The Kings finished strong after losing to the Jazz on Monday by not playing again until Saturday and beating the Jazz at home, 120-109. The Kings followed that with a comeback win over the Rockets with help from Chuck Hayes, a former Rocket. (Photo by Rocky Widner/NBAE via Getty Images)
Minnesota Timberwolves (18-30)
Minnesota Timberwolves (18-30)

Phoenix Suns (17-35)
Phoenix Suns (17-35)
The Suns are looking to rebuild through trades and view Knicks’ Iman Shumpert as a nice place to start. However, Knicks have no interest in Jared Dudley and other pieces that would be in the offer. (Photo by Barry Gossage/NBAE via Getty Images)
Orlando Magic (14-37)
Orlando Magic (14-37)

Charlotte Bobcats (11-39)
Charlotte Bobcats (11-39)
Déjà vu all over again in letting a big lead go in losing to the Lakers this past week (just as it did earlier in the season in LA). Bobcats have lost seven-straight with the latest to the 76ers where the Bobcats point total matched their opponent’s name, 76. (Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty Images)
