See the Latest Odds


With just five games on the schedule, last night was a fairly quiet evening in the NBA. Things will pick up again tonight, with eight matchups on the slate. While we’re waiting for the tip-offs, let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s making news this morning. Here’s the latest.

John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards: Wall posted another productive game against Orlando, and his team was able to pick up another win yesterday. He notched his second straight double-double, notching 16 points and 13 assists in the 98-80 victory. Wall also added four rebounds and a steal to give him a total of 10 boards and six swipes in his last two outings.
Up next for the 9-9 Wizards is another home game against the Bucks on December 6. After that, they’ll host the Nuggets on the 9th.

Tim Duncan, PF, San Antonio Spurs: Duncan was a straight up beast yesterday against the Hawks. He tallied a huge double-double with 23 points and a season-high 21 rebounds in the Spurs’ 102-100 victory. Through the first 14 games of the year, Duncan surpassed 20 points just once, but he’s done it in his last two outings.
The Spurs are just 2-2 over their last four games, but they’ll get a chance to clean that up tomorrow in Minnesota.

LaMarcus Aldridge, PF, Portland Trail Blazers: In what was probably yesterday’s most anticipated matchup, the Trail Blazers legitimized themselves by handing a loss to the surging Pacers. Aldridge was the hero of the night, notching 28 points and 10 rebounds in the big 106-102 victory. He’s scored at least 24 points in his last three games straight.
That was the first game in Portland’s four-game home-stand. They’ll host the Thunder tomorrow, the Jazz on December 6 and the Mavericks on the 7th. The Blazers currently sit at 15-3.

Jrue Holiday, PG, New Orleans Pelicans: If you like barn-burners, this was the one for you. The Pelicans and Bulls went into triple overtime at the United Center last night, with Holiday deciding the game on a layup with 2.6 seconds left in the extra period. New Orleans would hang on to take it by a final score of 131-128. Also of note were Ryan Anderson (36 points), Eric Gordon (23 points) and the Bulls’ Luol Deng (37 points).
The 9-8 Pelicans have now won three straight games, and will head back home for a four-game set starting tomorrow against the Mavericks.

NBA Daily Schedule: 16 teams will be out there on the court this evening, so there’s a good chance you can find a squad you like (or hate) within tonight’s set. Here’s a look at the full schedule, as well as the start times and TV networks where you can catch the games.
