TV:

The NBA’s busy weekend schedule continues today, with nine games on the slate in the coming hours. We’re coming off a 10-game evening last night, so there’s plenty for basketball fans to talk about. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the players and storylines making waves this morning. Here’s the latest.

Carmelo Anthony, SF, New York Knicks: It looks like the Knicks have themselves a winning streak going. They tallied their second straight victory last night against the Magic, holding Orlando to just 29 second-half points on the way to a 121-83 win. Anthony led the way for New York, putting up his third straight double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds.
The Knicks will get a chance to gain some major ground on the Celtics when they come to visit tomorrow. After that it’s a trip to Cleveland on December 10.

Dwight Howard, C, Houston Rockets: Howard dominated the boards last night during the Rockets’ 105-83 victory over the warriors. He posted 18 rebounds to go along with 22 points and three steals for his third double-double in the last four games. Howard has 36 rebounds in his last two outings.
Let’s take a look at Houston’s upcoming schedule. They’ll host the Magic tomorrow before hitting the road for a three-game trip that begins in Portland on December 12.

Kevin Durant, SF, Oklahoma City Thunder: The Thunder were able to bounce back from a loss on Wednesday to get a victory over the Pelicans last night. Durant did his part, posting 29 points and eight rebounds in the 109-95 win. He’s scored at least 24 in nine of his last 10 outings.
Up next for the 14-4 Thunder is a home game against the Pacers tomorrow night. After that, they have a two-game trip that begins in Atlanta on December 10.

Pau Gasol, PF, Los Angeles Lakers: Gasol bounced back from a statistically minimal game against the Trail Blazers to post some nice numbers yesterday. He put up 19 points and seven rebounds in the Lakers’ 106-100 win over Sacramento, buoyed by a 25-13 fourth quarter. Gasol has now posted double-digits in scoring over nine of his last 10 outings.
The Lakers currently sit at 10-9 and will be heading home for their next two games. One is Sunday against the Raptors, the other is Tuesday against the Suns.
