We’re coming off a 10-game schedule in the NBA last night, and we’ve got 10 more games coming our way this evening. Let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players and stats out there this morning while we’re waiting on game-time.
Nuggets-Pacers: The Nuggets have had some difficulties so far this season, but they were able to get a nice win last night against Indiana. Ty Lawson registered 11 points and 10 assists in the 108-87 victory, which halted Denver’s six-game losing skid and was the team’s first road win this year.
Of the seven Nuggets players finishing in double-digits were Arron Afflalo (17 points) and Wilson Chandler (13 points). Denver was up by as many as 32 during the blowout.

Heat-Hawks: The Hawks got a pretty good effort on both sides of the ball last night, and it paid off with a 114-103 victory over the Heat. Paul Millsap and Al Horford each contributed 19 points to the cause, and all five starters made it into double-figure scoring.
As for Miami, they were missing Dwyane Wade with a hamstring strain and were led by Mario Chalmers’ 23 points and 11 assists.
Cavs-Celtics: In one of last night’s most compelling games, LeBron James and company brought the Cavaliers to a comeback 122-121 victory over the Celtics in Boston, a nice sign of their chemistry coming together. James posted 41 points, while Kyrie Irving managed 27--15 of those coming in the fourth quarter.
Cleveland allowed Boston to score a whopping 42 points in the third quarter, but held them to 20 in the final period.
Knicks-Jazz: Just for a moment, it looked like the Knicks might be able to crawl back from behind and post their third victory of the year over the Jazz. New York kept pace with Utah after an early deficit and eventually tied the game at 100 with just over two seconds left. On the ensuing possession, Trey Burke nailed a corner jumper to give the Jazz a 102-100 victory at the Garden and keep the Knicks careening on their seventh straight loss.
Carmelo scored 46 points in a wasted effort, while Gordon Hayward managed a season-high 33 on the other side.
