TV:

After a pretty busy Friday/Saturday in the NBA, things will be slowing down a bit today, with just four matchups on the schedule. That said, we’ve still got a few potentially good games mixed in there, so it should be a good day for basketball. Let’s check out today’s headlines before we get settled in.

Wizards-Magic: The bench scoring in Washington was particularly impressive last night against the Magic, as that unit provided 48 points in the team’s 98-83 victory. Kris Humphries posted 16 himself, while John Wall put up 15 points and 10 assists in a double-double.
The Wizards now stand at 7-2, which is their best start to a season since the 1974-75 campaign, in which they went 7-1.
As for Orlando, all five of their starters were in double-figures, led by the 19 points of Tobias Harris.

Cavaliers-Hawks: In the early going of last night’s game, it seemed like Cleveland couldn’t miss from beyond the arc. The team made its first 11 three-point attempts--nine of which came in the first quarter alone--en route to a 127-94 victory over the Hawks.
Cleveland is now the first team in NBA history to go 9-for-9 on threes in the first quarter. Three of those belonged to LeBron James, who ended up with 32 points on the evening, one day after scoring a season-high 41 against the Celtics.

Pacers-Bulls: Indiana was pretty beat-up heading into Chicago last night, but they still got a big win against the Bulls. The Pacers got 21-point efforts from A.J. Price, Luis Scola and Solomon Hill on the way to a 99-90 victory.
Coming into this game, the Pacers had lost seven of their last nine games and were coming off an ugly loss to the Nuggets. This win sends them to 4-7 on the season so far.
On the other side, Jimmy Butler posted a career-high 32 points for Chicago.

Mavericks-Timberwolves: Minnesota needs to get off the road. They posted their fifth straight loss on this six-game road trip, falling 131-117 to the Mavericks last night. Monta Ellis led the charge, scoring a season-high 30 points. Eight players scored in double figures, and four players had at least five assists.
