February 11, 2015
Make sure to get your NBA kicks in tonight, as it’s the last evening of heavy action before the All-Star break. There are 12 games on the set tonight, so there will be no shortage of things to talk about in the meantime. Let’s take our daily look at the headlines.
Pistons-Hornets: The Pistons aren’t that strong this year, but they’re still playing like they’re in the playoff race--which realistically is true.
Detroit posted a nice 106-78 win over the Hornets in Charlotte yesterday, with Greg Monroe leading the way on 23 points and 12 rebounds. 18 more points came from D.J. Augustin in a solid outing.
Detroit is on a pretty good run lately; they’re 16-9 over their last 25 and starting to put things together.

Rockets-Suns: That James Harden guy is pretty good. He posted 20 points in the fourth quarter alone, willing the Rockets to a big 127-118 victory over the Suns in Phoenix.
Harden had 40 points overall, and Josh Smith added a 20-point effort, his highest since joining Houston.
On the other side, Eric Bledsoe nearly missed out on a career-high mark with 32 points. Phoenix has lost five of six.
Bulls-Kings: The Bulls’ Tony Snell had a career outing yesterday, logging 24 points in his best NBA effort. The result was a 104-86 victory over the Kings at United Center.
Pau Gasol contributed mightily as usual, logging 26 points and 16 rebounds. It was his 34th double-double of the year, which is the best in the NBA. (It was also his 13th straight double-double.)
The Kings, meanwhile, fall to 18-33 and have lost 12 of their last 14.
Lakers-Nuggets: Ty Lawson had a quality outing yesterday in the Nuggets’ final game before the break. He posted 32 points and 16 assists to tie season highs as Denver logged a 106-96 victory in L.A.
Darrell Arthur put up 15 points while Wilson Chandler and J.J. Hickson each managed 13.
