NBA Player Updates 1/30: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
January 30, 2015
We had a pretty quiet evening in the NBA last night, but there are nine games set in the coming hours, which should excite any basketball fan. While we’re waiting on those, let’s take our daily look around the league at some of the headlines.
Magic-Bucks: It’s been a long time since the Bucks beat the Magic in Orlando, but it happened last night. Jerryd Bayless led the way on 19 points while Jared Dudley and Khris Middleton put up 17 each in the 115-100 victory.
It was the Bucks’ first win in Orlando since December 29, 2004, a span of 17 games.
As for the Magic, they’ve won seven straight and 13 of 15. Victor Oladipo put up 21 points to lead the way.
Knicks-Pacers: Despite a slow start, the Pacers were able to overcome the woeful Knicks in Indianapolis last night, eventually bagging a 103-82 win.
Indy had been down early by double-digits, but fought back with a strong effort from Roy Hibbert, who had 18 points. The Pacers also dominated New York 50-26 in the paint.
Carmelo Anthony had 18 points for the 9-38 Knicks, who made just 14 of 42 shots in the second half.
Grizzlies-Nuggets: Zach Randolph is pretty good. He posted a nice 15-point, 17-rebound double-double against the Nuggets last night, resulting in a 99-69 win.
Jeff Green helped out with 13 points in the Grizzlies’ fifth straight victory, holding Denver to just 11 points in the opening frame in the process. After that, it wasn’t really ever close.
Lakers-Bulls: Last night’s only overtime game was a 2OT affair between the Lakers and Bulls in L.A. The home team took it to Chicago 123-118 after blowing a nine-point lead late.
Jordan Hill posted 26 points overall and was the hero of the first overtime by burying a clutch jump shot that tied things up. Wayne Ellington put up 23 and the young Jordan Clarkson would manage 18.
It was the Lakers’ first win since Kobe Bryant was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff.
