We’re coming off a fairly quiet five-game set in the NBA and heading into a active evening with 11 more matchups on the schedule. While we’re waiting on game time, let’s check out some of the notable players and stats in the news today.

Pistons-Grizzlies: Reggie Jackson was all over the place--in a good way--during the Pistons’ victory last night over the Grizzlies. He posted 23 points and a career-high 20 assists in the 105-95 come-from-behind win, which ends a 10-game slide for Detroit.
On the other side, Memphis’ Jeff Green led his team with 21 points, while Marc Gasol doubled up on 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Knicks-Spurs: In the surprise of the week (and maybe the month), the defending champion Spurs fell to the lowly Knicks 104-100 in an OT affair at the Garden last night.
Alexy Schved was the leader for New York, scoring 21 points and making a big defensive play late.
Stats-wise, this Knicks team is the first in NBA history to come into a game this late in the season with a winning percentage under .200 and beat the defending champions.

Rockets-Magic: James Harden was just okay for the Rockets last night, but they still got the victory over the Magic thanks to Donatas Motiejunas. He scored 23 in the 107-94 win, helping the team surge ahead with a big run in the fourth quarter.
Harden was just 4-for-14 from the field, but finished with 17 points thanks to eight free throws.
Victor Oladipo led the Magic with 29 points. They’ve lost four in a row.

Pelicans-Bucks: Big man Anthony Davis made just 6-of-18 last night, but he was still able to come up with 20 points and 12 rebounds. His efforts helped the Pelicans get past the Bucks 85-84.
The Pelicans are now in the No. 8 slot in the West, while the Bucks--who have lost nine straight on the road--are still fighting for a spot in their own conference.
