TV:

Last night featured a half-dozen games happening around the NBA, and we’ve got five more headed our way this evening. Before we settle in and wait for tip-off, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players and storylines out there across the league. Here’s the latest from the hardwood.

Luol Deng, SF, Chicago Bulls: The Bulls followed up their big win over the Pacers this weekend with another victory last night. This one was an 86-81 win over the Bobcats, who looked to be in control after outscoring Chicago 23-14 in the second quarter. The Bulls responded with a 22-15 third, however, and went the distance to seal the victory. Deng posted a game-high 21 points in the win, his second consecutive with over 20.
The 6-3 Bulls have won five straight, and they’ll try to make it six in their first outing of a six-game road set Thursday in Denver.

Kevin Durant, SF, Oklahoma City Thunder: After allowing a whopping 39 points to Denver in the opening quarter, the Thunder calmed down defensively to eventually take a 115-113 win at home last night. Durant had a huge statistical outing, with 38 points. He did much of his damage from the free-throw line (13-of-16) as opposed to his tepid shooting line from the field (11-of-27). He also posted eight rebounds and six assists.
Durant and company will be back in action Thursday at home against the Clippers. OKC currently sits at 7-3.

Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors: Here’s the good news: Curry posted 22 points, six rebonds and eight assists in a 98-87 win over the Jazz last night. The bad news? He also sustained a head injury during a collision with Utah’s Marvin Williams. The team’s initial diagnosis was a headache, but we’d imagine he’ll go through all the standard concussion tests before being allowed back on the court.
The 8-3 Warriors have won four straight. They’ll be in action tomorrow at home against Memphis.

Zach Randolph, PF, Memphis Grizzlies: Speaking of Memphis, they must be really proud of Randolph. He’s been in a statistical beast mode lately, dropping double-doubles in his last four outings. His most recent came during the Grizzlies’ 106-102 win over the Clippers, when he dropped 26 points and 15 rebounds. Randolph now has seven double-doubles in 10 games.
Memphis’ four-game California swing will come to an end tomorrow against the Warriors. After that they’ll return home Friday to host the Spurs.

NBA Daily Schedule: 10 teams will be in action this evening, which will provide a nice appetizer for tomorrow’s heavy set of games. Here’s a look at the complete schedule for tonight, as well as the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
