NBA Player Updates 12/6: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
December 6, 2015
The NBA is easing up a bit today after yesterday’s busy schedule, but we’ve still got five games to look forward to. While we’re waiting on those, let’s check out some of the notable stats and players in the headlines.
Warriors-Raptors: The Warriors kept their perfect streak going with a victory over the Raptors in Toronto last night, but it wasn’t as easy as some of their other games have been.
Stephen Curry came up with nine 3-pointers among his 44 points in the 112-109 victory. He went 9-of-15 from behind the arc all together. He’s averaging 30 points in his six career games in Toronto.
The Warriors are now 21-0, officially the best start ever for a professional sports team.

Cavs-Heat: Without LeBron James to contend with, the Heat didn’t have a whole lot of trouble with the Cavaliers in Miami last night. Dwyane Wade put up 19 points in three quarters of work in the 99-84 victory, while Tyler Johnson also had 19 of his own.
Goran Dragic had 17 points here, and Chris Bosh managed 14. The Heat are now ahead of Cleveland by percentage points in the East standings.
Bucks-Knicks: The Bucks backcourt is pretty injured right now, but they got a nice effort from Michael Carter-Williams and O.J. Mayo last night against the Knicks. Carter-Williams had 20 points off the bench in the 106-91 win, while Mayo had 17 in the start.
The Knicks were in this one until an ugly 21-4 run in the third quarter. Carmelo Anthony had yet another bad shooting night, with just 6-of-17 shots going in.
Clippers-Magic: The Magic looked primed for a win over the Clippers in L.A. last night, but the home team used a 29-22 fourth quarter to eke out a 103-101 victory.
Jamal Crawford scored 32 points, with 16 of them coming in the fourth. Wesley Johnson had 21 off the bench. Blake Griffin had 28 points with 13 rebounds; DeAndre Jordan managed 15 points and 14 boards.
The Magic blew a 12-point lead early in the fourth quarter and halt their five-game winning streak.
