Thursday's Game of the Night: Cleveland at Chicago, for none of the marbles (Ball Don’t Lie)

Jimmy Butler can’t believe how he does it. The 2016-17 NBA regular season, thankfully, is nearing an end. Since we all need the reminders as to who is set to start the playoffs where, who needs a bump during awards season or with a statistical accomplishment, and who is doing their best work in losing in order to grab improved lottery ball odds, Ball Don’t Lie is set to look at what should be your game of that particular day between now and the end of the term on April 12.

James Harden thinks playing every game should matter in NBA voting (Ball Don’t Lie)

The practice of NBA teams choosing to periodically rest healthy star players in hopes of reducing the likelihood that those marquee talents will suffer fatigue-related injuries, or just flat-out play worse late in the season/in the playoffs because they’re tired from the 82-game grind, has become a hotly debated topic of late. The superstar guard has missed just one game in the last three seasons — and even missed only one practice this season, according to ESPN’s Calvin Watkins — suiting up to lead the Houston Rockets’ high-octane attack come hell or high water, night in and night out. “Yeah, because you’re not leaving your teammates out there to dry, ” Harden said Tuesday morning, before the Rockets’ game against the Warriors.

Sixteen NBA teams will advance to the 2017 playoffs, each striving to survive and advance in the springtime tournament with hopes (some more realistic than others) of hoisting the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy come mid-June. Karl-Anthony Towns and Ricky Rubio have helped lead the Timberwolves’ second-half surge. The Minnesota Timberwolves were everybody’s preseason pick for a “surprise” playoff run — to the point that it wouldn’t have shocked anyone — before it quickly became apparent we’d jumped on the bandwagon too soon.
