NBA News: Player News and Updates for 2/10/15
NBA Player Updates 2/10: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
February 10, 2015
After a long stretch of busy NBA days, the league is easing up a bit tonight, with just five games on the schedule. Still, there’s plenty of good basketball to look forward to, so with that said let’s take our daily look around the headlines.
Spurs-Pacers: Spurs coach Greg Popovich nearly had to wait a while longer for his 1,000th win. San Antonio was down by 14 points in the fourth quarter, but rallied for a 95-93 victory against the Pacers in Indianapolis last night, giving Popovich entry into that exclusive coaching club. Only Phil Jackson and Pat Riley reached the 1,000-win threshold faster than Popovich. He’s 1,000-462 in his 19 NBA seasons, all of which have been spent with the Spurs.

Warriors-Sixers: The Warriors posted an unusually low-scoring game against the Sixers in Philly last night, posting an 89-84 victory.
It’s rare these days to see Golden State under 100 points or so, but the win is what counts here. Stephen Curry put up 20 points and Leandro Barbosa added 16 from a bench role.
Coming into this one, the Sixers had built up a four-game win streak at home. They’re now 12-41. The Warriors, meanwhile, move to 41-9.
Knicks-Heat: At this rate, Carmelo Anthony isn’t going to make it to the All-Star break. The Knicks’ star came out in the fourth due to soreness in his knee, in the meantime losing a 109-95 game to the rival Heat in Miami.
Chris Bosh posted 32 points to lead the way here, and Mario Chalmers posted 18.
The Knicks completed the dubious honor of being the first team to guarantee themselves a losing record with this most recent defeat.
Hawks-Timberwolves: The Hawks got back to their winning ways in Minneapolis last night against the Timberwolves, posting a 117-105 win.
Al Horford put up 28 points (a season-high for him) and eight rebounds, while DeMarre Carroll managed 26 points (a career-high for him). Paul Millsap chipped in with 19 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, helping Atlanta get to 43-10 on the season so far.
