NBA News: Player News and Updates for 1/14/15
NBA Player Updates 1/14: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
January 14, 2015
There wasn’t a whole lot going on in the NBA last night, but the good news is that we’ve got 10 more games headed our way this evening. While we’re waiting on those matchups to get started, let’s take our daily look around the league and see what’s up out there with some of our favorite players and teams.
Wolves-Pacers: Mo Williams had a career game last night, unfortunately for the Pacers. He dropped 52 points in Indianapolis, which is a league-high this season so far, to help Minnesota break a 15-game losing streak on a 110-101 win. It’s also a new franchise mark for the Wolves.
The previous high in the league so far this year had been Carmelo Anthony and Pau Gasol, who both put up 46-point games.
The Timberwolves are now 6-31 and won for the first time since December 10.

Hawks-Sixers: The Hawks didn’t have too much trouble with the 76ers last night, even though they were resting Teague, Millsap and Carroll. Al Horford made sure of that.
He posted his first career triple-double in Philly, with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a 105-87 victory.
Horford made 8 of his 10 shots from the field, and put up his mark in just 29 minutes. He sat as soon as that 10th rebound was calculated.
That’s nine straight road game wins for the Hawks, who are sizzling right now.
Wizards-Spurs: It may sound hard to believe (or not), but before last night, the Wizards hadn’t beaten the Spurs since 2005.
That all changed with a 101-93 victory in Washington, however, thanks to some big performances by key players.
Kevn Seraphin posted 17 points and eight rebounds while John Wall put up 25 points and eight assists. Together, they had previously been 0-7 against San Antonio.
Cavaliers-Suns: LeBron James was back last night after being out for two weeks due to injury. It wasn’t enough for the Cavs, however, as they fell to the Suns 107-100.
James scored 33, but was outdone by Markieff Morris, who put up a career-high 35 on 15-of-21 shooting.
Phoenix outscored Cleveland 11-3 over the final 3:31 of the game. Cleveland has lost nine of 10 overall and are now 19-20.
