Pacers stumble out of the block

It seems the Celtics didn't need C Kelly Olynyk to tough out a swollen eye, as his understudy Tyler Zeller is scorching to start the game, going 4-for-5 for 11 points. Boston leads by 6 after one.

Swollen-eyed Olynyk hits 3-pointer on first shot of night. Team debating having Shavlik Randolph bop him before each game.

Bulls seek fourth straight win

If the season ended today the Bulls and Bucks would meet in the first round of the playoffs. Chicago would probably be OK with that, having won six straight in the series and nine in a row in Milwaukee. Follow live

Wiggins a shoo-in for Rookie of Year?

Andrew Wiggins currently leads all rookies in combined points, rebounds and assists. Each of the last 11 rookies to do that went on to win Rookie of the Year honors. The last to do it and NOT win Rookie of the Year was Yao Ming, who was beaten out by Amar'e Stoudemire. Raptors at Wolves, 8 P.M. ET

Wizards find the cure for what ails them

Desperation time for Pacers-Celtics

Brad Stevens isn't focused on seedings: "I've got a general idea of the standings... But I don't know the exact timelines. We need to stay in the moment." But if the Celtics lose to the Pacers tonight, both Boston and Detroit will sit 1.5 games behind the Nets for the 8 seed. Follow live
