NBA News: Player News and Updates for 3/22/15
NBA Player Updates 3/22: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
March 22, 2015
We’ve got a heavy round of NBA games set for today, with 11 matchups on the schedule. Before we get settled in to watch all the action, let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s in the news.
Nets-Pacers: The Nets and Pacers seem to be heading in opposite directions these days. Brooklyn got a victory last night in Indianapolis, taking it 123-111 on the strength of Brook Lopez’s 26 points and four blocks. Bojan Bogdanovic put up 21 points and five rebounds while Deron Williams managed 17 points of his own.
The Nets have now won four of the last five games in a last-ditch effort to secure a playoff slot.

Pistons-Bulls: The outcome of this one was pretty hard to believe. The Pistons overcame a 19-point lead in the third quarter, storming back to beat the Bulls in Auburn Hills. The final score was 107-91.
Detroit outscored the Bulls 54-19 in the last 19 minutes of the game, thanks to Reggie Jackson and Spencer Dinwiddie. The two guards combined for 27 points and 13 assists in the second half.
Blazers-Grizzlies: It was a bad night all around for the Blazers. First, they were beaten in Memphis by the Grizzlies 97-86, thanks to 23 points by Jeff Green and 21 with nine assists by Mike Conley. Portland has now lost four straight, which is a season-worst.
Perhaps worst of all, star forward LaMarcus Aldridge injured his hand in the first half and left with it taped up. We’ll have to wait for some more information on his status, but an injury to him would obviously be a crippling blow to the Blazers.
Warriors-Jazz: Stephen Curry was coming off his worst shooting effort of the season, but you wouldn’t know it by how he played last night against the Jazz. He put up 24 points to help the Warriors to a 106-91 victory. Leandro Barbosa added 19 off the bench, a season high.
Curry’s 8-of-18 shooting comes one day after a dismal 4-of-17 line against the Pelicans.
