NBA Player Updates 11/7: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 7, 2015
We’ve got a pretty busy NBA schedule this evening, with nine matchups on the slate. Before we get settled in for the evening’s tip-offs, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the league.
Celtics-Wizards: The Celtics finally showed some life last night, running away with a 118-98 victory over the Wizards in Boston. Jared Sullinger logged 21 points here, while Isaiah Thomas racked up 16 points and eight assists. Jae Crowder doubled up on 12 points and 10 rebounds. He also had five steals. Boston forced 24 turnovers here, which was key to the big win.
The victory stops a three-game slide for the Celtics.

Lakers-Nets: Somebody had to win last night between the Lakers and the Nets--who were both winless coming in--and that was Los Angeles.
Kobe Bryant seemed back in the groove here, logging 18 points as the Lakers took it 104-98 at Barclays Center. D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson each chipped in 16 points.
The Lakers are now 1-4 while the Nets continue to flounder at 0-6.
Cavaliers-Sixers: The Cavaliers looked a little off their game in the first half against the Sixers last night in Cleveland, but made up for it in the final two quarters on the way to a 108-102 victory.
LeBron James put up 31 points (a season-high), with 18 coming in the third quarter alone. He made his 9,000th career field goal in the second quarter.
Cavs fans will want to keep an eye on LeBron this weekend; he suffered a quad injury in the fourth quarter and was eventually pulled from the game. He may have to sit tomorrow’s game.
Knicks-Bucks: The Knicks still haven’t figured out how to close a game, and it cost them once again last night at the Garden against the Bucks. Milwaukee was up 14 in the second quarter, then New York stormed back and took the lead later in the game. The Knicks would wilt down the stretch as Milwaukee pushed to a 99-92 win.
John Henson put up 22 points, while Carmelo Anthony led New York on 17 of his own. Kristaps Porzingis logged another double-double on 14 points and 13 boards.
