NBA Player Updates 3/29: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
March 29, 2015
We’ve got a busy NBA day ahead of us, with nine games on the schedule (including some nationally-televised action). While we’re waiting on tip-offs, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the news.
Hawks-Hornets: The Hornets needed to bounce back after a tough 2OT loss against the Wizards in their last outing, and with Atlanta coming to town they were able to do just that.
The Hornets took the win 115-100, with Kemba Walker scoring 21 points to lead the charge. Gerald Henderson also had 20 points on 9-of-10 shooting.
This win comes with an asterisk, though. The Hawks were giving all five starters the night off to rest.
