TV:

The NBA is coming off a busy set of games last night, and we’re in for a lot more action today. There are 11 matchups on the schedule in the coming hours, so it’ll be a great day for basketball fans to stay indoors and camp out on the couch. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players and storylines out there this morning. Here’s the latest.

Roy Hibbert, C, Indiana Pacers: After a relatively quiet evening against the Grizzlies, Hibbert came back in a big way against the Bucks last night. He posted 24 points and 10 rebounds, nearly missing a triple-double with eight blocks. The Pacers kept rolling with a 104-77 victory.
Can Indiana be stopped? At 9-0, they’re certainly the scariest team in the NBA right now, and they seem to be cruising. They’ve got a big road swing coming up, however, starting in Chicago tonight, then New York and Boston next week.

Luol Deng, SF, Chicago Bulls: Speaking of Chicago, let’s cruise over there and check in on Deng. He’s had an up-and-down season thus far when it comes to shooting, but posted a solid line in last night’s 96-80 win over Toronto. He managed 19 points and nine rebounds, very nearly his second double-double of the season.
The 4-3 Bulls have now won three games in a row. After a pair of home games (tonight against the Pacers and Monday against the Bobcats), they’ll head out for a tough six-game road stretch that includes stops in Denver, Portland and L.A.

LeBron James, SF, Miami Heat: Talk about efficiency. James posted a season-high 39 points in his team’s 110-104 win over the Mavericks, and there’s not a lot he did wrong offensively. He went 14-for-18 from the field and 10-for-11 from the free throw line, adding six rebounds and four assists in the victory. James has now surpassed the 30-point mark in three of his last five outings.
The Heat currently sit at 6-3 after winning their last two games. They’ll be on the road in Charlotte tonight, then it’s back home for the Hawks on the 19th.

Zach Randolph, PF, Memphis Grizzlies: Chalk up another double-double for Randolph. He managed 28 points and 11 rebounds in Memphis’ 89-86 win over the Lakers, a comforting win considering the Grizzlies could only muster 16 points in the second quarter. That’s five double-doubles for Randolph so far this year.
Memphis sits at 4-5 and will be looking to get back on the right track as they swing through California. They’re in Sacramento tomorrow for the second installment of their four-game road trip.

NBA Daily Schedule: 22 teams will be out on the court today, which will continue a pretty active weekend around the NBA. Here’s a look at the full schedule, as well as the TV networks and start times for each game.
