December 7, 2014
We’re in the middle of a pretty busy run in the NBA right now, and there are seven more games headed our way today. The action gets started this afternoon, but before those tip-offs hit the air, let’s take a look around the league in our daily check-up.
Bulls-Warriors: If you like high-flying, high-scoring NBA action, this was the game for you (as long as you’re not a Bulls fan). The Warriors won their franchise-record 12th straight last night against the Bulls, giving the team a 10-1 record on the road this year.
Draymond Green poured in a career-high 31 in the 112-102 win, with Klay Thompson adding 24 points of his own.
Prior to this game, Golden State had been awful in Chicago, they’d lost five straight and 11 of 12 there.

Rockets-Suns: The Rockets got big efforts by both Trevor Ariza and Pat Beverley last night against the Suns, as each guy scored 19 points in a 100-95 win. It was Houston’s fourth straight victory.
The team seems to be playing just as well with big man Dwight Howard out of the lineup (knee). They’re 7-2 with him out and 16-4 overall this year.
This game was pretty much a blowout--Houston led from wire to wire and were up by 22 at one point.
Spurs-Timberwolves: Marco Belinelli led the Spurs to a big victory against Minnesota last night, pouring in 20 points and six assists in a team effort during the 123-101 win.
The San Antonio players were in a giving mood last night, posting a season-high 30 assists as a team as they improved to 15-5. Seven players put up double-digit points, among them Kawhi Leonard and Cory Joseph, who had 18 each.
Clippers-Pelicans: In the first quarter, the Clippers blew open an 18-point lead on the Pelicans, but allowed them to come back by halftime. L.A. got back on track in the third and finished with a 120-100 victory at home.
Blake Griffin went over 7,000 points for his career, adding 30 points in this one. J.J. Redick would add 21 and Jamal Crawford 20. Chris Paul would double up with 18 points and 16 assists.
