TV:

The busy NBA schedule will be continuing today, with five more matchups coming on the schedule. While we’re getting settled in and waiting for tip-offs, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players out there and see who’s making headlines. Here’s the latest.

Paul George, SF, Indiana Pacers: George kept his strong run going last night against the Clippers. He posted 36 points, six rebounds, two assists and three steals in the Pacers’ 106-92 victory. That gives him at least 25 points in each of the last three games. George also had just one turnover.
That’s four wins in a row for the Pacers, who sit at 32-7 so far. Up next is a five-game road trip. That one kicks off tomorrow at Golden State.

Joakim Noah, C, Chicago Bulls: Noah has been putting up solid rebound numbers lately, but has only been scoring in double-digits every other game. That trend continued last night against Philadelphia with a 21-point, 16-rebound effort in the 103-78 victory. Noah also had four blocks, his highest total since he posted five against Atlanta on Jan. 4.
The Bulls have won two of their last three and are 19-20 on the season. They host the Lakers tomorrow night.

Dwight Howard, C, Houston Rockets: Howard managed another solid effort last night in a win against Milwaukee. He notched 20 points, 14 rebounds and a pair of assists in the Rockets’ 114-104 win, which makes three double-doubles in his last four games. Howard also took good care of the ball, with no turnovers.
Houston has won four of their last five to put them at 27-15 so far. They’ll host Portland tomorrow for the middle matchup in their five-game home-stand.

LaMarcus Aldridge, PF, Portland Trail Blazers: Speaking of Portland, they’ve got some guy named LaMarcus Aldridge on their team, and we hear he’s pretty good. He managed 30 points and 12 rebounds in the team’s 127-111 victory over Dallas last night, which makes four straight double-doubles for him.
That’s five straight wins for Portland. They’re 31-9 right now. They’re halfway through a four-game road trip, with stops in Houston tomorrow and OKC on Tuesday.
