The PBT Podcast has returned and on this Tuesday myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio  talk about the biggest story in the NBA — the Spurs and their 18-game winning streak. They are playing the beautiful game right now. The Spurs have set the bar for the season, the level everyone else is trying to reach, the question is can the younger, more athletic teams like the Thunder and Clippers able to clear that bar come the playoffs?

Then we talk about the mess that is the Pacers right now. Would they be smart to get a more traditional point guard this summer to help organize their offense?

Finally, we talk the playoff chase in the East and the West.
