Last night’s eight-game set in the NBA provided some must-see moments, and we’re sure to get plenty more with this evening’s dose of eight matchups. While we’re waiting on the tip-offs, there are a few notable players out there who deserve a look. Let’s see who’s making headlines this morning.

Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons: In the surprise finish of the night, the Pistons were able to overtake the defending champion Heat to hand them their first loss since November 9. Drummond led the way in a solid buzzer-to-buzzer effort from Detroit, notching 10 points and 18 rebounds in the 107-97 win. That’s his fourth double-double in a row.
The 8-10 Pistons are 4-2 in their last six games. Their road trip continues tonight in Milwaukee, then concludes in Chicago on December 7.

Kevin Durant, SF, Oklahoma City Thunder: Durant has been a statistical beast this month, and it continued last night against the Kings. He and the Thunder held off Sacramento after a late charge, emerging victorious 97-95. Durant notched 27 points and 11 rebounds in a nice follow-up to his triple-double on December 1. He now has at least a double-double in four straight.
The 13-3 Thunder have won eight straight, and will continue to Portland for tonight’s game, which is the second in a three-game trip. They’ll finish up in New Orleans on Friday.

Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors: At one point, the Warriors were down a whopping 26 points in the second half against the Raptors. Thanks to some timely 3-point shooting and a fourth-quarter surge, they were able to emerge victorious. For his part, Curry posted 27 points (with 14 in the fourth) and Golden State outscored Toronto 42-15 in the final frame to take it 112-103. He also added 10 assists.
The 11-8 Warriors will now hit the road for a three-game trip. They’ll head to Houston for their next game on Friday.

Timofey Mozgov, C, Denver Nuggets: Mozgov has been quiet for most of the year, but has come on in a big way recently. He notched his second consecutive double-double in a big 111-87 win over the Nets last night, posting 17 points and 20 rebounds. That performance comes after a 16-point, 15-rebound outing against the Raptors.
Next up for the 11-6 Nuggets is the third game of their five-game road trip. They’ll be in in Cleveland tonight.
