NBA Player Updates 11/24: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 24, 2014
It was a pretty good weekend of NBA action, and there’s more where that came from when the schedule starts back up on tonight’s seven-game set. In the meantime, let’s take our daily look around the league at some of the notable headlines out there right now.
Grizzlies-Clippers: This game was all about Marc Gasol. He had a stellar outing, posting 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead Memphis to a 107-91 victory over L.A. last night. It was his second consecutive game with at least 30 points to his credit.
In the wake of this victory, Memphis now owns a 12-2 record--which is the best in the NBA right now.
Helping Gasol out were Courtney Lee (13 points), Tony Allen (12 points), Beno Udrih (11 points), Quincy Pondexter (11 points) and Zach Randolph (10 points).

Blazers-Celtics: Portland has been on a nice little run as of late, and their good fortune continued last night against the Celtics. The team posted a 94-88 win, helped out by LaMarcus Aldridge’s 20 points and 14 rebounds. The victory extended the team’s streak to seven games.
Damian Lillard posted 12 points, nine boards and five helpers here, while Nicolas Batum managed 12 points of his own.
Boston, meanwhile, faded down the stretch, missing 12 of 14 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Heat-Hornets: If you like last-second intrigue in your basketball, this was the game for you. The Heat pulled off a stunning 94-93 win over Charlotte, decided in a wild series of events over the last handful of seconds.
When the dust settled, Luol Deng had 26 points, with Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers each putting up 20 of their own. The victory ended Miami’s three-game home losing streak, which is something the team hasn’t been accustomed to in recent years.
Nuggets-Lakers: As last night’s only overtime affair, there was plenty of intrigue in the Nuggets-Lakers game as well. Wilson Chandler led the way for Denver on 19 points here, while Ty Lawson put up 18 points and 16 assists.
The Lakers, in spite of 27 from Kobe Bryant, fell flat during the final minutes and let the game slip away 101-94.
Denver has won five of their last six games, turning around after a lousy 1-6 start to the season.
