After a pretty busy day of games yesterday, the weekend NBA action is going to be heating up once again early this evening, with five more matchups on the schedule. While we’re waiting on game time, let’s check out some of the notable players out there who are making headlines.
Heat-Magic: Chris Bosh was on his game last night against the Magic. He scored 32 points--14 of those coming in the fourth quarter--en route to a 99-92 victory over intrastate rival Orlando. It was the 10th straight victory for the Heat over the Magic.
Bosh went 5-of-6 in that final quarter and guided the team on a 14-4 run late that put the game away. Miami now goes to 7-6 on the year.

Cavaliers-Raptors: The Cavs have hit a blunt spot in their early season recently, capped by another loss last night. This one was at the hands of the Raptors, who handed Cleveland their fourth straight defeat 110-93 to put them at 5-7 on the year.
Lou Williams notched a career-high for the Raptors, posting 36 points. Toronto has now won four games in a row and is cruising through its best start in franchise history at 11-2. They’ve got the best record in the conference.
Knicks-Sixers: If there was one game the Sixers were going to get for their first win of the year, this was one many people thought they might get. New York used big first and third quarters to come out on top 91-83, however, even though things got interesting at the end when Philly caught up late.
Carmelo Anthony posted 25 points while Amare Stoudemire put up 16 points and 11 rebounds of his own. The Sixers are now 0-13, while the Knicks get just their fourth victory of the year.
Rockets-Mavericks: Let’s go back to another intrastate rivalry and check out the Rockets-Mavericks game. James Harden scored 32 points in a rousing 95-92 victory over the surging Mavericks, and even better the team did it without Dwight Howard (he was sitting with a knee injury.
The Rockets ended their two-game losing slide and halted Dallas’ six-game win streak.
