NBA Daily Updates 11/26: Pacers Win Again, Knicks' Skid Continues, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 26, 2013
Things will slow down a bit in the NBA tonight, but don’t worry; we’ll have some heavy schedules coming up this week. While we’re waiting on this evening’s four-game set, let’s take a look around the league at some of the noteworthy players out there on the court. Here’s the latest.
Paul George, SF, Indiana Pacers: Another win for the Pacers; another big game for George. He posted 26 points, eight rebounds and four assists in the 98-84 victory over the Timberwolves last night, a game that was pretty close until the fourth quarter. That’s the third time in the last four games that George has surpassed 25 points.
The 13-1 Pacers will hit the road tomorrow, putting their stellar record to the test against the Bobcats.

LeBron James, SF, Miami Heat: This one was pretty close until the third quarter, when the Heat began to pull away for good. James and company took the victory 107-92 over the Suns last night, and for his part LeBron managed 35 points, five rebounds and four assists. It was his highest scoring output since his 39-point tear against the Mavericks on November 15.
Looking to the rest of the week, the defending champs will hit the road tomorrow for a game in Cleveland, then they’ll be in Toronto on the 29th.
Chandler Parsons, SF, Houston Rockets: It was a tale of two halves last night for the Rockets. They were outscored by 12 points in the first two quarters, but then came roaring back to close the game, outscoring Memphis 38-23 in the fourth. They’d end up taking it 93-86. Parsons was the team-high scorer, with 17 to his credit. He’s had an up-and-down string of games since surpassing 20 points in three consecutive outings in the middle of the month.
The 12-5 Rockets have a couple games at home this week. They’ll see the Hawks tomorrow and the Nets on Friday.
Carmelo Anthony, SF, New York Knicks: The Knicks’ big early-season road trip isn’t starting out so well. After a loss to the Wizards over the weekend, they headed out to Portland and were promptly manhandled in a 102-91 loss. New York set the tone with a flat first quarter, during which they were outscored 18-34. Anthony posted a nice stat line, with game-highs in points (34) and rebounds (15) but it was all for naught.
The Knicks’ brutal road trip continues tomorrow night in L.A. against the Clippers. After that they’ll head to Denver on the 29th.
NBA Daily Schedule: Just eight teams will be out there tonight, but the heavy action is on its way (13 games tomorrow). Here’s a look at the full schedule, as well as the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
