ESPN Stats and Information  

Over the last 4 seasons, 23 of the 24 teams in 1st place at the All-Star Break finished the season in 1st place. Only team that didn't was the Hawks, last season. (Via Elias Sports Bureau)

File this under "only at All-Star Weekend": Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Rev. Jesse Jackson were on the same commercial flight leaving New Orleans to return to Boston today. No word on whether they discussed the Celtics missing out on trading for DeMarcus Cousins.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Anthony Davis is happy about the Cousins trade. Since Christmas, he's mostly played the Center position, but he's more effective at the 4-spot.
