NBA Player Updates 2/11: Warriors, Pacers, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
February 11, 2014
There’s no time to stop and catch your breath: We’ve got another pretty heavy set of NBA games on tap for this evening, with seven matchups headed our way. Before we get settled in and wait on those tip-offs, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players out there and see what everyone’s up to. Here’s the latest.
Roy Hibbert, C, Indiana Pacers: After a relatively quiet four-game stretch, Hibbert broke out again last night against Denver. He put up 14 points and 12 rebounds in his team’s 119-80 blowout win, his first double-double since January 28. In his previous four outings, Hibbert hadn’t hit double-digits in points or rebounds.
The Pacers have officially reached that magical 40-game threshold, at 40-11 so far this year. Up next is a home game against Dallas tomorrow night.

Kyle Lowry, PG, Toronto Raptors: Up until yesterday, Lowry hadn’t had a double-double yet this month, but that all changed against the Pelicans. He put up 19 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in his team’s 108-101 victory, which was his first double-double since January 29. Lowry also registered two steals and a pair of turnovers in the win.
Up next for the Raptors is a home game against the Hawks. Toronto has split their last four games 2-2, and stands at 27-24 on the year.
Dwight Howard, C, Houston Rockets: Howard managed yet another nice game last night against the Timberwolves, posting 18 points and 15 rebounds in Houston’s 107-89 victory. That makes his 34th double-double of the season so far and his third in a row. Howard also added two assists, a steal and three blocks to his line last night.
That’s six wins in a row for the streaking Rockets, who are currently 35-17 on the year. Up next is a home game against Washington tomorrow night.
Marreese Speights, PF, Golden State Warriors: Well, this came out of nowhere. Speights was on fire last night against the 76ers (the team that drafted him). He posted a career-high 32 points, eight rebounds, an assist and three blocks in the 123-80 victory, which is more than he’s scored in his previous seven games combined.
That’s two wins in three games for the Warriors, who stand at 31-21 so far this season. Up next is the second game in their two-game home-stand tomorrow against Miami.
