We’ve got a heavy slate of NBA action coming tonight, which will be a great way to kick off the long holiday weekend. While we’re waiting, let’s check out some of the notable players and storylines out there so we can see who’s in the news.
Warriors-Heat: We got a good matchup last night between the Heat and Warriors, with Golden State eventually coming out on top 114-97.
They did it on the strength of Stephen Curry’s 40 points (11-of-18 shooting), which breaks him out of a minor slump he’d been in the past couple of games. He was a crazy 8-of-11 from beyond the arc. Klay Thompson added 24 points in a 57 percent shooting night for the Warriors. Harrison Barnes posted 12 points and Andrew Bogut cleaned up the boards with 10 rebounds.

Brandon Knight added 20 points and eight assists in a nice all-around performance to help Milwaukee stop a two-game skid. They’re 8-7 so far.
Detroit is now 3-11 on the season.
Kings-Pelicans: Kings coach Michael Malone got tossed in the first half of this game after arguing with an official, but Sacramento was able to stay focused. They ended up with a 99-89 win over the Pelicans, thanks to DeMarcus Cousins’ 22 points and 12 rebounds. He also had five assists and three steals. Omri Casspi posted 22 points, going 9-of-14 from the field.
