PBT Extra: Does Evan Turner solidify Pacers atop East? Rockets tops out West?


After a few weeks mid-season hiatus — which is what Chris Paul and LeBron James really want for the All-Star break — PBT Extra is back with the incomparable Kay Adams at the helm.

Today she and I start off talking about what Evan Turner can mean to the Pacers — as long as he keeps playing in the system as he did in his Pacers debut (6-of-12 for 13 points off the bench) he is an upgrade over Danny Granger and makes the Pacers better.

Then we talk Houston: They have won 10-of-11 and are now the three seed out West, but are they really a threat to keep climbing. Also out West, who is going to miss out on the playoffs. Minnesota, for one.
