NBA News: Player News and Updates for 4/3/15
NBA Player Updates 4/3: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
April 3, 2015
After a brief lull of only three games last night, the NBA is back with a vengeance this evening. We’ve got 10 matchups to look forward to, so with that said let’s check out some of the key stats and situations out there in the news this morning.
Heat-Cavaliers: The Heat got some bad news on top of a big loss to the Cavaliers last night in Cleveland. Dwyane Wade went down due to a knee injury during the 114-88 loss, which was the Cavs’ 17th straight victory at home.
Wade’s knee is reportedly just bruised, so things could have been much worse. He should be okay for the Heat’s final playoff push.
Meanwhile, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving both scored 23 points in the victory.

Rockets-Mavericks: James Harden didn’t have to carry the entire team last night in Dallas, but he still did his fair share. He put up 24 points in the 108-101 victory, getting key contributions from Dwight Howard and Jason Terry in the process.
The Rockets are now 52-24 and a half-game in front of the Grizzlies for the No. 2 seed in the West.
The Mavs, meanwhile, are 3 ½ games ahead of the Thunder with six games to go in order to lock up the No. 7 slot.
Warriors-Suns: Harrison Barnes made a couple of defensive gaffes late in the game last night against the Suns, but redeemed himself with a big shot as time was winding down, helping the Warriors to a 107-106 win in Oakland.
Golden State has a commanding 62-13 record this season, and is currently on an 11-game winning streak. The Suns, on the other hand, have wilted and now stand at 38-38.
