January 14, 2016
The NBA is going to continue along tonight with six games. There’s plenty to go over in the meantime, however, so let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the league.
Hornets-Hawks: The Hornets came into last night’s game against the Hawks with a seven-game losing streak in tow, but they were able to buck that trend in style.
Charlotte posted a 107-84 blowout win over Atlanta, with Kemba Walker leading the way on 23 points. Cody Zeller managed 19 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double, and Jeremy Lin also scored 19.
The Hornets were up by as many as 22 in the third, then began the fourth with a 21-8 run that sealed it.

Knicks-Nets: The Nets had dropped 10 games at home coming into last night’s game against the Knicks, but were able to snag a rare victory.
Brooklyn took a 110-104 win against their intrastate rivals--who were without Carmelo Anthony (ankle). Brook Lopez led the way with 20 points, and Thaddeus Young doubled up on 19 points and 11 rebounds.
This was the first victory for interim coach Tony Brown, who took over on Sunday.
Mavericks-Thunder: Russell Westbrook got ejected early on in last night’s game against the Mavericks, but his team didn’t have a whole lot of trouble winning.
The Thunder posted a 108-89 win at home without Westbrook, who was 0-for-3 from the field and 0-for-4 on free throws. He did put up eight assists and seven rebounds before getting tossed for fighting with J.J. Barea.
Overall, there were six technical fouls and two ejections in this one.
Warriors-Nuggets: Whenever the Warriors lose, it’s always newsworthy. That happened last night in Denver, as the Nuggets eked out a 112-110 victory.
Stephen Curry scored 38 points, with 20 coming in the fourth quarter, but coughed up a turnover in the final seconds that sealed the game’s fate. Harrison Barnes had 18 points and Klay Thompson had 17.
The Warriors are now 36-3 and came into this one as winners of seven straight.
