After a pair of pretty heavy days in the NBA, things will be slowing down quite a bit this evening. We’ve got just three games on the upcoming schedule, but with that said, there’s still plenty to talk about. Let’s take a look at a few names out there making headlines across the league and try to get a feel for what we should be expecting in the immediate future. Here’s the latest.

Zach Randolph, PF, Memphis Grizzlies: Randolph and the Grizzlies beat up on the hapless Knicks in the Garden yesterday, pushing New York to 0-3 in noon starts so far this year. Memphis dominated most of the 95-87 victory, with Randolph contributing 25 points and 15 assists in his 15th double-double of the season. On the boards and in the paint, it wasn’t really even close.
The win snaps a five-game losing streak for the Grizzlies, bringing them to 11-15. They’ll host Utah tomorrow.

Dwight Howard, C, Houston Rockets: Howard and company avenged a relatively listless performance against the Pacers in their last game by beating up on the Pistons yesterday. Houston emerged victorious 114-97, with Howard coming up with 35 points and 19 rebounds. The big man now has double-doubles in four of his last five games.
The Rockets now have wins in two of their last three, and stand at 18-10 on the year. Next up is a home game against Dallas tomorrow.

Joakim Noah, C, Chicago Bulls: The Bulls used a big first half to bury the Cavaliers, and ultimately came away with a 100-84 victory. Noah was huge for Chicago, coming down with 18 rebounds and 11 points. That’s two double-doubles in a row for Noah, and he’s matched the feat in five of his last seven outings.
That’s just Chicago’s first win in their last five games, which makes them 10-16 so far. They’re in Brooklyn for a big matchup against the Nets on Christmas Day.

Andrew Bogut, C, Golden State Warriors: Let’s head out west and look at Bogut, who had a huge outing against the Lakers last night. He posted 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting, but more importantly pulled down a season-high 20 rebounds in the Warriors’ 102-83 victory over L.A. That’s Bogut’s first double-double in the last four games.
That makes wins in two of the last three games for Golden State, which brings them to 15-13. They’re in Denver tomorrow.

NBA Daily Schedule: We’ll have just a half-dozen teams in action today, so there won’t be a whole lot of options out there for us NBA fans. In any case, here’s a look at the full schedule along with the TV networks carrying the games.
