After 16 games in the NBA happening over the past two days, it’s time to slow things down a bit. There are just three matchups on the schedule this evening as the teams get set for a big weekend slate. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy names across the league and see what everyone’s up to theis morning. Here’s the latest.

Tristan Thompson, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers: The Cavs have quite a bit of talent on their roster, and on nights like last night they put it all together. Cleveland posted a solid game against the Nuggets, taking the victory 98-88. Thompson had a notable evening, as he was able to notch a career-high 21 rebounds to go along with his 17 points. It was his second consecutive double-double.
The 6-12 Cavaliers have won their last two games and will look to make it three tomorrow night in Atlanta.

Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons: Along with Greg Monroe, Drummond was a beast in the paint in the Pistons’ victory over Milwaukee last night. He managed 24 points and 19 boards in the 105-98 win, both team-highs. That gives Drummond five consecutive double-doubles, and eight in his last 10 appearances.
That’s three wins in a row for the 9-10 Pistons; they’ll try to get back to .500 with a road game in the United Center against the Bulls on Saturday night.

Dirk Nowitzki, PF, Dallas Mavericks: Nowitzki is still a potent scorer, and he’s displayed that over the past few games. Just last night, he posted 21 points, seven rebounds and four blocks in the Mavs’ 100-97 victory over the Pelicans. That makes three games in a row that Nowitzki has scored at least 21.
That’s two wins in a row for the 12-8 Mavericks. Their next test will be Saturday night in Portland, the second installment in a four-game road trip.

Paul George, SF, Indiana Pacers: The Pacers took a rare loss last time out against the Blazers, but last night they got the cure for their ailments in the form of a matchup against the Jazz. George posted 19 points, six rebounds and four assists in the 95-86 victory. He has at least 19 points in eight of his last nine outings.
Let’s see what’s next for the 17-2 Pacers. Saturday night, they’ll be in San Antonio for the third game of their four-game road trip. They’ll finish it off in OKC on Sunday.

NBA Daily Schedule: The three matchups set for tonight’s NBA slate all should be pretty good games. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, as well as the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
