NBA Player Updates 11/9: News From Around the League, Tonight's Schedule and More
November 9, 2014
It’s been a good weekend for NBA basketball. After yesterday’s round of eight games, we’ve got eight more coming our way in the next several hours. Before those matchups get tipped off, let’s take our daily look around the league and check out some of the notable players out there this morning.
Knicks-Hawks: For a while there, it looked like the Knicks might get their third win of the season and halt their ugly losing streak, then the second half happened.
Atlanta woke up after the break and recovered from their back-to-back road losses with a 103-96 win over New York at home last night. Kyle Korver led the way with 27 points while Jeff Teague added 19.
When Carmelo Anthony snapped out of his funk with 14 points in the first quarter, it looked like the Hawks were in for a long night, but he scored just six points after that.

Wizards-Pacers: Both Washington and Indiana came into this one tired after a long stretch of games, and the Wizards proved to be able to outlast the Pacers 97-90 for a satisfying road win. The Pacers’ offense stalled out late in the game after a push to get back in it. That was necessary after a 32-14 first quarter from Washington.
Marcin Gortat scored 12 points while Paul Pierce had 12 of his own. The Wizards are now 5-2.
Celtics-Bulls: Seven Celtics players scored in double-figures last night against the Bulls, including Evan Turner, who had 19 in an emergency-start capacity. Rajon Rondo was out for this one, but Boston was still able to get a 106-101 victory over Chicago. Kelly Olynyk had 18 points and 11 rebounds for a double-double, while Jeff Green added 14.
On the other side, Aaron Brooks had 26 points (19 in the fourth quarter) while Pau Gasol had 19 points an nine boards.
Warriors-Rockets: The Warriors are still undefeated, off to their first 5-0 start in the past two decades. The team was able to overcome a halftime deficit of eight points to outscore Houston 50-31 in the final two quarters for a 98-87 victory.
Stephen Curry posted 34 points and 10 rebounds, including 23 points in the second half. He was also 6-of-9 from three-point range with five assists and four steals.
