Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens asked if Isaiah Thomas deserves to be an All-Star starter. "Sure." And why is that? "Because he's had a hell of a year."

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said power forward Ryan Anderson will miss his second consecutive game with a stomach virus. Corey Brewer will start in his place. Also, D'Antoni said center Clint Capela, who returned to the starting lineup after missing the last 15 games with a fractured left fibula, will come off the bench against the Bucks. Montrezl Harrell will start in place of Capela. In Tuesday's loss at Miami, Capela played nine minutes, all in the first half.

Good note from Jacob Nitzberg of ESPN Stats and Information: "Tuesday night's game marked Jimmy Butler's 16th game this season with 10+ free throws made, which ties him with Chet Walker for the 10th-most such games in a season in franchise history. Only Michael Jordan has more games in a season with 10+ FT made in franchise history."

Steph Curry on the Warriors' elaborate groundbreaking ceremony for their new arena Tuesday: "It set the bar for groundbreakings going forward. If you don't have trampoline divers, synchronized cranes and even a choir serenading the location, I don't think you're doing anything. It won't be impressive enough."
