We’ve got a stacked 12-game set coming tonight in the NBA, so there will be plenty of options for basketball fans to ponder in the next several hours. While we’re waiting on tip-offs, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in our daily wrap-up.
Hornets-Wizards: Gerald Henderson led the way for the Hornets against the Wizards last night in Charlotte. He posted 27 points in the Hornets’ second victory this week against Washington, 94-87.
The Hornets bounced back after halftime after allowing 54 points in the first and second quarters. They would allow only 33 in the third and fourth.
Charlotte moves to 22-27 with the win.

Cavaliers-Clippers: The Cavaliers are officially the hottest team in the NBA right now, and they just keep rolling along. Last night was their 12th straight win, a 105-94 affair over the Clippers in Cleveland.
LeBron James put up 23 points and Kevin Love had 24 in this one, with both resting the fourth quarter after the team had built up a 32-point lead in a surprisingly docile victory over the normally tough Clippers.
Mavericks-Kings: Monta Ellis had a good night against the Kings in Sacramento yesterday. He put up 21 points and six assists to lead the way to a 101-78 victory, all the more important with Dirk Nowitzki and Rajon Rondo sitting.
The Mavericks were all over this one, forcing 17 turnovers and nailing 12 3-pointers. They gave the ball away just nine times.
Tyson Chandler also doubled up here, with 16 points and 16 rebounds.
Blazers-Suns: In the late game last night, the Trail Blazers put up a 108-87 win at home last night over the Suns. LaMarcus Aldridge was the big contributor, posting 19 points and 13 rebounds. It was his 220th double-double, which is a franchise record.
Nicolas Batum had 20 points here, and Robin Lopez--who is just recently back from injury--added 11 points and 12 rebounds.
