The NBA All-Star was a huge hit over the weekend as Dallas Stadium was filled with about 108,000+ basketball fans. The event sets up a new record attendance in hosting a basketball game inside the converted Dallas Stadium.
On Tuesday, the second half of the regular season starts with the Boston Celtics facing the Sacramento Kings for a primetime basketball game. The Celtics leads the Atlantic Division with a 32-18 record, the rotating injuries incurred by Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen have somewhat affected the team's performance during the first half of the season.
With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Celtics may want to consider adding another legit player to help their playoffs chances. But, the Celtics might give up Ray Allen in exchange for a young and athletic shooting guard. GM Danny Ainge will be busy man for this week with the looming trade deadline.
The Sacramento Kings are somewhat loss in the woods this season. They have a losing record and currently in 4th place in the Pacific Division. The Kings have a very young group of players that are still trying to find their groove in the NBA. Adding a couple of veteran players may help the Kings to improve a bit in the latter part of the season.
The seasoned handicappers installed the Boston Celtics as the 6-point favorite to beat the underachieving Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.
