November 12, 2014
We’re coming off a six-game set in the NBA last night, and we’ve got even more action on the way this evening with nine more on the schedule. While we’re waiting on those tip-offs, let’s check out some of the notable players out there and see who’s making headlines.
Raptors-Magic: Toronto didn’t look all that impressive through the first three quarters of last night’s game against Orlando, but they finished strong. Down 11 in the final period, the Raptors rode a strong performance by Kyle Lowry to get a 104-100 victory last night.
Lowry had 19 points to lead the team, while Terrence Ross notched 17 more. DeMar DeRozan added 16 of his own, and Lou Williams put up 14--with eight coming in the decisive fourth quarter.
Evan Fournier posted 24 to lead the Magic in the loss.

Grizzlies-Lakers: Last night was a historic one for Kobe Bryant, for better or worse. He surpassed the Celtics’ John Havlicek to claim the NBA record for most missed field goals in a career. That dubious record gave the game something of a backseat feel, but for what it’s worth the Grizzlies won 107-102.
Mike Conley posted 23 points in the win, but the Lakers almost made a crazy comeback after being down 17 points late. They cut it to 105-102 but wouldn’t score again.
Bucks-Thunder: The tough-luck Thunder dropped another game last night, this one on the road in Milwaukee. The Bucks started out flat, but found their groove later in an 85-78 victory. O.J. Mayo led the way with 19 points, while Giannis Antetokounmpo had 14 and Brandon Knight added 16.
On the other side, Reggie Jackson set a new career-high with 29 points, and Serge Ibaka posted 14. The Thunder are now 0-5 in road games this year.
Spurs-Warriors: The Spurs played their veterans last night, and the move paid off as the defending champs edged the Warriors 113-110. Tony Parker put up 28 points and seven assists to lead the way, while Kawhi Leonard managed 19 to round out the back-to-back pair of games with a win.
As for the Warriors, Klay Thompson put up 29 points in his return, while Harrison Barnes posted 22 points and eight rebounds. They’ve now lost two in a row.
