The NBA is easing up a bit tonight (five games) after last night’s packed schedule. Still, there’s plenty to talk about this morning as we get set for tip-offs. Let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there right now.
Pistons-Magic: Reggie Jackson was the star of the show last night in Orlando. He posted a triple-double, logging 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists during the Pistons’ big 111-97 win over the Magic.
That marks Jackson’s second triple-double as a Piston, and Detroit’s fourth straight win.
On the other side, Orlando has lost nine of 10.
