NBA News: Player News and Updates for 4/14/15
NBA Player Updates 4/14: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
April 14, 2015
There are just two more evenings’ worth of games on the NBA regular-season schedule, so you’d better get your fill if your team’s not headed toward the playoffs. We’ve got just three games to look forward to tonight, however, so with that said let’s take our daily look around the league in today’s wrap-up.
Rockets-Hornets: There are a lot of scenarios left in the Western Conference playoff picture, and many of them involve the Rockets. They took another step forward in the seeding yesterday, posting a 110-90 win over the Hornets.
James Harden posted 29 points here, whole Josh Smith added 16 points and 11 rebounds for his part. Houston will finish up tomorrow against the Jazz.

Sixers-Bucks: Michael Carter-Williams posted a nice outing yesterday against the Sixers, logging 30 points (which matches his season-high) in a 107-97 win.
O.J. Mayo and Ersan Ilyasova would add 13 points each, while Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 12 more.
The Bucks are headed to the playoffs this season after logging the NBA’s worst record in 2013-14. It’s been quite a turnaround for them.
Cavaliers-Pistons: LeBron James was back out on the court last night after sitting out a game to rest, and he was able to record a triple-double against Detroit. James had 21 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes of action as the Cavs put up a 109-97 victory in Cleveland. J.R. Smith made eight 3-pointers on his way to 28 points, while Timofey Mozgov scooped up 13 rebounds.
The Cavaliers are now 33-9 since mid-January.
Knicks-Hawks: The Hawks perhaps came into last night’s game against the Knicks overconfident, and they were blown out in the first half. Atlanta couldn’t complete a comeback and fell 112-108 to the league’s second-worst team.
Knicks rookie Langston Galloway put up a career-high 26 points, nailing 6-of-6 from 3-point range. Tim Hardaway, Jr. would add 23.
The Hawks tied things up early in the fourth, but New York was able to pull away shortly thereafter.
