It was an interesting night across the league on Tuesday. We saw a few blowouts, courtesy of the Rockets and Heat, a strange match-up between the Knicks and Pistons, and two close contests featuring the Timberwolves vs. the Wizards and the Suns vs. the Kings. Tonight we have all the games, including what should be a really fun one between the Clippers and Timberwolves. There’s also an all-Texas meeting between the Rockets and the Mavericks, and Grizzlies vs. Warriors caps off the night.
