NBA Player Updates 2/25: Warriors, Clippers, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
February 25, 2014
The NBA schedule is pretty heavy over the next couple of days, starting with tonight’s round of seven games. While we’re waiting on those tip-offs, let’s take our daily look around the league and see what’s happening out there. Here’s the latest.
O.J. Mayo, SG, Milwaukee Bucks: There was no defense to be found during last night’s Bucks-76ers game, as evidenced by the 130-110 final score. Mayo led the way in his team’s victory, logging a whopping seven three-pointers in his 25-point total. He also tallied three assists, a rebound and a steal to round things out.
The Bucks are 2-2 in their last four to bring them to 11-45 on the season so far. They’ve got a tough one in Indiana on Tuesday before heading back home.

Klay Thompson, SG, Golden State Warriors: Thompson kept pace for the Warriors last night, helping the team get a win over the Pistons. He poured in a team-high 19 points in Golden State’s 104-96 victory, adding three rebounds and two assists to round things out. The ever-reliable Stephen Curry also posted 19 of his own.
That’s four straight wins for the Warriors, who are 35-22 on the season so far. Game two of their six-game trip is in Chicago tomorrow night.
DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers: Jordan was on point during last night’s game against the Pelicans. He hauled in 16 rebounds, adding 14 points for a double-double in the 123-110 victory. Rounding out his stats, Jordan added four blocks, two assists and a steal. That’s two straight double-doubles for him.
The Clippers won two straight to finish off their road trip at 2-1. They’re 39-20 overall. Back home tomorrow, they’ll welcome the Rockets to town.
Alec Burks, PG, Utah Jazz: Coming off a bad shooting outing this weekend, Burks improved things last night against the Celtics. He finished with 21 points in the 110-98 win, adding one rebound, four assists and a steal. Burks has scored at least 21 in four of his last six outings.
The win breaks a three-game skid for the Jazz, who are 20-36 on the year. They’ll play the Suns at home tomorrow night before hitting the road for a six-game trip.
NBA Daily Schedule: It’ll be a pretty busy night in the NBA this evening, with seven matchups on the schedule. Here’s a look at the full slate, along with the start times and TV networks carrying each game.
