We’re continuing this busy stretch in the NBA with today’s matchups; We’ve got seven games to look forward to today. While we’re getting settled and waiting on those tip-offs, let’s take our daily look around the league at some of the hot-topic players out there. Here’s the latest.

Al Jefferson, C, Charlotte Bobcats: Though he didn’t quite hit the double-double heights he’d been so familiar with recently, Jefferson still put up a nice game against Portland yesterday. He had 28 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two blocks in the 124-94 blowout, breaking a string of five double-doubles in six games.
The Bobcats will be back in action tomorrow against the Rockets, continuing their three-game home-stand. Charlotte is 34-36 on the season.

James Harden, SG, Houston Rockets: Harden was absolutely phenomenal last night against the Cavaliers. He put up 37 points, 11 assists, four steals and three rebounds in the 118-111 victory. He’s posted at least 28 points in three of his last four games, and it’s his first double-double since March 9.
After losing three, the Rockets have now won three, and they stand at 47-22 on the season. They’ll head to Charlotte tomorrow, then go back home to host Philly on the 27th.

Joakim Noah, C, Chicago Bulls: After a rough game their last time out, the Bulls got back to their winning ways last night against Philadelphia. Noah put up 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists, a steal and three blocks in the 91-81 victory, which breaks a two-game double-double streak.
The Bulls went 2-2 last week, and they’ll be looking to improve on that tomorrow in a rematch against the Pacers. Their only other game this week is a home tilt Friday against the Blazers.

Anthony Davis, PF, New Orleans Pelicans: We’ve been talking about Davis quite a bit lately, and he deserves all the recognition he can get. He was stellar once again last night against the Heat, posting 30 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and a block in the 105-95 victory. That’s four games in a row that he’s hit the 30-point mark.
The Pelicans are finishing strong. They went 3-1 last week and currently sit at 29-40. They’ll host Brooklyn tomorrow and the Clippers Wednesday.
