A few short days ago we were in the middle of the All-Star Break wondering who would be named MVP and what trades would happen before the deadline comes on Thursday afternoon. As fate would have it Cleveland Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving would be named MVP of the All-Star Game while there were no blockbuster trades this year but the Indiana Pacers were able to make a trade for SG Evan Turner who will provide some offense for them off the bench. Teams are just now starting to make their runs at getting one of those final playoff spots which brings us to look at the Top 5 games NBA tickets of week.
