NBA Daily Updates 11/10: George and the Pacers Win Again, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 10, 2013
The second full weekend of the NBA season has been a pretty busy one so far, with nine more games happening around the league yesterday. We’ve got another four to look forward to today, but before we settle in for tip-off, let’s take a closer look at some of the news-making players out there everyone is talking about this morning. Here’s the latest.
Paul George, SF, Indiana Pacers: The Pacers just keep on winning, and George just keeps on filling up the stat lines. He posted 24 points and six rebounds in Indiana’s big 96-91 win in Brooklyn last night, which was his seventh consecutive game with at least 21 points and six rebounds to open up the season. The Pacers are now 7-0 and a major force in the East.
Here’s a look at the upcoming schedule for Indy: they’ll get Memphis at home tomorrow, then Milwaukee comes in on Friday. After that, they’ll have another huge game on Saturday in Chicago.

LeBron James, SF, Miami Heat: James was dealing with a bit of a back injury last night against the Celtics, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at his line. He managed 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field in the Heat’s 111-110 loss, which brings them to 4-3 on the year. James also added eight rebounds and 10 assists for his second double-double of the year.
The Heat will try to rebound on Tuesday, when Milwaukee comes to town. Dallas will visit on Friday.
DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers: The Clippers snapped a two-game losing streak last night, thanks largely to Jordan’s efforts. He managed 12 points and 18 rebounds in the 107-94 win against Houston, good enough for his third double-double of the season.
The Clippers have had something of a rollercoaster season thus far, so they’ll be looking to get back on track in their home-stand this week. Minnesota comes in tomorrow, then OKC Wednesday and Brooklyn on Saturday.
Zach Randolph, PF, Memphis Grizzlies: Speaking of rollercoaster campaigns, Randolph has experienced some early successes and failures this season. He definitely had it working last night, though, during a 108-90 win over Golden State. Randolph posted 23 points and 11 rebounds during 35 minutes of action, his third double-double of the year.
The Grizzlies will have a big matchup tomorrow in Indianapolis against the Pacers. When that’s finished, it’s back home to host Toronto on Wednesday.
NBA Daily Schedule: Today’s four-game set is sandwiched between a pair of nine-game slates, so we’ll be back to another busy day tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a look at the full schedule today, along with the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
