The NBA All-Star Break is here. The unofficial midway point of the NBA Season. Meaning we are just 2 months away from the end of the 2019-2020 Regular Season and the beginning of the 2020 NBA Playoffs and as usual the playoff picture is taking shape and people can start to get an idea of what teams are gonna be heading to the NBA Playoffs to battle for the right to become this years NBA Champion and which teams are headed to the NBA Draft Lottery. The Boston Celtics have been one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference this season and as they go into the All-Star Break they are in a battle with the Toronto Raptors for the 2nd seed in the East. Many experts seem to feel that in the East there are 2 things guaranteed about the playoffs. 1 that the Milwaukee Bucks will be the #1 seed and will be in the Eastern Conference Finals and that the team that gets the 2 seed will get the equivalent of an NFL 1st round bye alongside the Bucks based on the teams likely to finish in the 7th and 8th seed while the teams to finish 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th will all be in for a major battle for the right to move to the 2nd round. The Celtics and Raptors as of earlier this week both were on multiple game win streaks that were snapped just before the break as the Raptors had a 15 game win streak snapped in Brooklyn in their final game before the break. While the Celtics had a 7 game win streak snapped in their 2nd to last game which saw them lose to the Houston Rockets. So now most of the NBA's players and coaches are on a weeks vacation to rest up and try to heal up for the stretch run to the end of the season. Daniel and Igor will discuss the current standings in the East and West. How round 1 in the playoffs are shaping up with 2 months to go. Plus the latest on the injury front and how important the fist few games after the break will be. They will be joined by Rich Jensen (@RichAJensen on twitter) and Chris Langseth (@Hans02421 on twitter to discuss those topics)
