NBA Player Updates 3/1: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
March 1, 2015
After a seven-game NBA set yesterday, we’ve got eight to look forward to today. The action starts early this afternoon, so make sure you’ve got your spot on the couch reserved. Let’s take a look at the headlines and key stats while we wait.
Wizards-Pistons: The Wizards haven’t been doing all that well lately, but they were able to rally for a 99-95 victory over the visiting Pistons last night. John Wall posted 22 points and Nene backed him up with 21 of his own. The win stopped a six-game losing skid for Washington, and they had also lost 11 of 13.
The Wizards also got a nice lift from Marcin Gortat here, who logged 16 points and 17 rebounds.

Hawks-Heat: Even the short-handed Hawks are apparently too much for the Heat these days. Atlanta rested four players and still came up with a 93-91 victory over Miami. Paul Millsap led the way on 22 points, while Dennis Schroder logged 16 points and 10 assists of his own.
Resting for the Hawks were Al Horford, Pero Antic, DeMarre Carroll and Jeff Teague.
On the other side, Dwyane Wade put up 22 points while the heat fell to 10-17 at home.
Knicks-Raptors: We always say it’s front-page news when the Knicks win a game these days, so we’re not quite sure what to make of them winning two in a row.
That’s just what happened last night at the Garden, as New York took a win over the flailing Raptors 103-98.
Tim Hardaway scored 22 on a sad day for the Knicks franchise, saddened by the death of former player Anthony Mason at just 48.
Grizzlies-Timberwolves: The Grizzlies eventually got a victory 101-97 over the Timberwolves last night, but the result was in question for much of the game. Marc Gasol put up 27 points and 11 rebounds, scoring nine straight points in the last four minutes.
Mike Conley also hit a huge 3-pointer late, finishing with 17 of his own.
Kevin Garnett was ejected from the game here with two technicals. His second came when he slammed the ball on the court.
