Here’s a look at the best battles in the NBA this week.

LAC at Sixers

Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. ET

The Sixers are still searching for consistency, which has been maddeningly elusive this season. Meanwhile the Clippers have kept plugging along, just three games back in the West while the Sixers have fallen to 13 games back in the East. The Clippers have the advantage, but can they compete with Philly’s 24-2 home record, the best in the NBA?

Portland at New Orleans

Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 8 p.m. ET

Damian Lillard is a one-man show for the Trail Blazers, which is a bright spot for a team that has failed to meet expectations. On the other hand, the Pelicans have a chance to surpass expectations. They’re just five games out of a playoff spot in the West, and Zion Williamson is just getting warmed up. Don’t sleep on the Pels.

Milwaukee at Indiana

Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. ET

The Pacers are mired in losing streak, and getting out of it isn’t going to be any easier with the Bucks coming to town — especially with Victor Oladipo struggling after returning for a yearlong injury absence. They just lost to a Zion-less Pelicans team, but don’t expect Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks to be anything but relentless. They didn’t get that 45-7 record by coasting.

LAL at Denver

Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. ET

The Lakers and Nuggets could be fighting for dominance in the West for the rest of the season. The Nuggets are just three games behind the Lakers, so expect both teams to bring their best. The Lakers don’t look quite as unstoppable as the Bucks, and with Nikola Jokic playing out of his mind for the Nuggets lately, Denver has a slight edge. They could even be within one game of the Lakers by the All-Star break.

The All-Star Game

Sunday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. ET

Team LeBron. Team Giannis. The biggest stars in the NBA. This game shouldn’t be missed. What more do you need to know?
