2 More NBA Stars Return to Wild West

Wednesday night saw not just the return of Gilbert Arenas and Dirk Nowitzki, but also the returns of two more NBA All-Stars. Both were stars from Los Angeles as well. Pau Gasol suited up for the Lakers, while Elton Brand suited for the Clippers. The returns of both players are welcome, however the Lakers are in the hunt for the top spot in the Western Conference, while the Clippers are far from the playoff hopes right now. Brand scored an impressive 19 in his return helping his Clips beat the Sonics 102-84. Brand's been one of the all-star players out the longest. Paul Gasol returned to add just 10 points in 31 minutes to help the Lakers beat the Blazers.

There's currently six West teams that should finish with 50 wins this season, and they are jockeying for the top of the West.

New Orleans, San Antonio, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Utah

There's several other teams capable of getting 50 wins, with Denver, Golden State and Dallas.

Each remaining game will feature West Coast teams battling it out, and will most likely take on a playoff atmosphere as the regular season finishes. The other funny thing to take note of, there's been several East teams to clinch playoff spots already, but nothing's confirmed yet out in the Wild West.
