We’ve got six games on the schedule in the NBA for Tuesday and that’s thanks to one game getting pushed. The Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors were supposed to play but the game was moved to Wednesday with the Raptors dealing with a Covid-19 outbreak of sorts. The All-Star break is approaching and there are plenty of games that need to be made up.

Let’s take a look at lineups for Tuesday night.
