March 2, 2014

See the Latest Odds


We won’t be seeing quite as many games today in the NBA as we did yesterday, but we’ve still got a pretty busy schedule to look forward to in the coming hours. While we’re waiting for the tip-offs, here’s a closer look at the noteworthy players out there making headlines.

LeBron James, SF, Miami Heat: Another win for the Heat, another protective mask for LeBron. He debuted his clear version yesterday against the Magic, and the results were the same: a 112-98 victory for Miami and a 20-point, nine-rebound, seven-assist effort from James. That said, it was still his lowest points total since Feb. 8 against the Jazz.
James and the gang have now won seven in a row en route to a 42-14 record. Tomorrow against Charlotte is the last game of their current home-stand.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Terrence Jones, PF, Houston Rockets: Here’s a name that doesn’t make the highlight films too often, but definitely deserved it with his performance last night against the Pistons. Jones posted a double-double with team-highs in points (22) and rebounds (10) in the Rockets’ 118-110 win. That’s his third double-digit scoring performance in the last four games.
Up next for Jones and company is a big one at home against the Heat on Tuesday. The Rockets have won three of their last four and stand at 40-19.

Paul George, SF, Indiana Pacers: Now we’ll move on to a frequent subject of this space in George. He was on point again last night against Boston, providing 25 points, eight rebounds, three assists and three steals in the 102-97 win. That’s the fifth time in the last six games that George has hit the 25-point mark.
The Pacers have won their last four games to get to 45-13. We’ll see if they can keep it going with a pair of home games up next, starting today against Utah.

Zach Randolph, PF, Memphis Grizzlies: Now let’s move on to Memphis and check in on Randolph. He helped guide the Grizz to a victory over the Cavaliers yesterday, with 23 points and 14 rebounds in the 110-96 affair. That’s Randolph’s second double-double in a row and his fourth in the last five games.
The Grizzlies have won two of their last three games to get to 33-25 in this heated playoff race. They have a three-game road trip coming up, starting tomorrow in DC.

NBA Daily Schedule: We’ve got 14 teams in action in the NBA today, which should lead to some pretty good matchups out there. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks where you can catch the games.
