After a very busy evening last night, the NBA will be keeping it going all weekend with a pretty heavy slate of games. We’ve got eight to look forward to today, so before we get settled in and wait on those tip-offs, let’s take a closer look at some of the news-making players out there this morning. Here’s the latest.

Tobias Harris, SF, Orlando Magic: Harris had a breakout game yesterday, helping his team to a victory over the Lakers. He posted a season-high 28 points and a career-high 20 rebounds in the 114-105 win, shooting 9-of-15 from the floor and adding four assists. It was his sixth double-double of the season.
The Magic’s win stops a two-game skid and brings them to 12-32 so far. Starting tomorrow in New Orleans, they’ll hit the road for a three-game swing.

Tim Duncan, PF, San Antonio Spurs: Not to be outdone, Duncan came up with a double-double of his own last night against the Hawks. He put up 17 points and 16 rebounds in the Spurs 105-79 blowout win, doing all that work in just 27 minutes of action. That’s Duncan’s third consecutive double-double, and he’s accomplished the feat 17 times this year.
That’s two wins in three games for the Spurs, who are 33-10 so far. Their three-game road trip continues this afternoon in Miami.

Carmelo Anthony, SF, New York Knicks: Even during the first half, the Madison Square Garden crowd could tell they were witnessing something special. Anthony had 37 first-half points on his way to an MSG record (and career-high) 62 against the Bobcats last night, and the Knicks would win easily 125-96. He came out of the game early in the fourth with New York up big.
The Knicks certainly needed that lift after dropping five straight games. Their home-stand continues tomorrow against the Lakers in an effort to improve on their dismal 16-27 record.

Blake Griffin, PF, Los Angeles Clippers: Griffin was definitely on his game yesterday against the Bulls, and the Clippers continued to surge. He put up 26 points, seven assists and 13 rebounds in the 112-95 win, his first double-double since January 10. Griffin logged 37 minutes of action.
The Clippers have won three of five on this road trip, and they stand at 30-15 so far. They have two more left before coming home, starting today in Toronto.

NBA Daily Schedule: 16 teams will be in action today, so there should be plenty of interesting on-court happenings in the coming hours. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks carrying each game.
