TV:

The NBA will be resuming its busy day today, with eight games coming our way. There’s still plenty to talk about as we await the tip-offs, as there were seven matchups happening around the league yesterday. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players out there who are making headlines today.

John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards: After managing just eight points against the Pacers, Wall had a bounce-back game yesterday against Atlanta. He posted 26 points and 12 rebounds in the 108-101 win, which was his first double-double in the past six games. In that span, Wall has scored at least 26 in four of those outings.
Let’s take a look at the Wizards’ upcoming schedule. They’re sitting at 8-9 and have won four of their last five games. Washington will try to improve on that tomorrow at home against the Magic, then again on December 6 against Milwaukee.

Tristan Thompson, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers: Thompson has been hitting double-doubles pretty consistently over the last several games, and he got another one last night. He posted 14 points and 14 rebounds in a 97-93 win over the Bulls, which gives him four double-doubles in his last 10 outings.
Next up for the 5-12 Cavs is a home game against the Nuggets on Wednesday. After that, they’ll head to Atlanta on December 6.

Kevin Love, PF, Minnesota Timberwolves: Speaking of double-doubles, Love knows a thing or two about them. He now has nine straight, thanks to a 21-point, 11-rebound effort in the 112-106 win over the Mavericks last night. Love also added two assists and a block in the victory.
That stops a three-game skid for Minnesota, who now sit at 9-9. They’ll head to Oklahoma City today, then host the Spurs on December 4.

James Harden, SG, Houston Rockets: After playing limited minutes against the Nets in his first game back from a foot injury, Harden was back at it yesterday against the Spurs. He notched 31 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the 112-106 win, which was the first time he surpassed 30 points since November 14.
The Rockets have now won five straight and sit at 13-5 on the year. They’ll be in action again tomorrow in Utah. After that it’s back home for a three-game swing that starts on Wednesday.

NBA Daily Schedule: 16 teams will be in action today, so it should be a very full cap to the holiday weekend. Let’s take a look at the complete schedule, as well as the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
