NBA Player Updates 11/14: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 14, 2014
Last night was a pretty light one in the NBA, with just four games on the schedule. We’ve got 10 more coming our way this evening, however, so there will be plenty to keep tabs on in the next several hours. That said, let’s take our daily look around the league and check out some of the news-makers out there.
Kings-Grizzlies: If you like improbable comebacks, this was the game for you. The Grizzlies overcame a 26-point deficit to beat the Kings 111-110 on Courtney Lee’s reverse layup as the final buzzer sounded.
Memphis rode a solid performance from Mike Conley, who had 22 points and 11 assists. The Kings led a one-sided matchup most of the game, and still were up by 17 with around seven minutes remaining. A furious 16-1 run got Memphis back in it, and they took the game on the final play.

Bulls-Raptors: This is getting to be a recurring scenario for Bulls fans. Derrick Rose went down with yet another leg injury--this one his hamstring--in the team’s 100-93 victory against the Raptors last night. Rose scored 20 points before hurting himself in the foruth, but called the injury “minor.” There’s no telling whether or not he’ll be good to go for tomorrow’s game.
Elsewhere on the Bulls, Pau Gasol posted 27 points (a season-high) and 11 rebounds in the victory.
Mavericks-76ers: The Sixers continued to serve as the league’s punching bags, as they remained the league’s only team without a win thus far. The Mavericks pummeled Philly to the tune of the biggest win in franchise history, a 53-point margin. All 13 Dallas players put points on the board, and everybody except one posted a rebound in the 123-70 win.
As for the Sixers, they’re now 0-8, their largest season-opening losing streak since 1972-73, when they dropped 15 in a row.
Warriors-Nets: The Warriors came into this one on a two-game losing streak, but were able to overcome the Nets before making things worse. Klay Thompson posted 25 points and Draymond Green added 17 points with eight rebounds and seven assists in the 107-99 victory. Stephen Curry put up 17 points and five assists.
As a team, the Warriors turned the ball over just 11 times, which was much less than their league-leading 21.9 turnovers per game they entered this matchup with.
