See the Latest Odds


After a long run of busy schedules over the past several days, the NBA is slowing things down a bit tonight with just four matchups on tap. That said, there’s a lot of good basketball out there, so let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s in the news.

Heat-Sixers: The Heat have run into some difficulties lately, but for at least one night things turned out well. They got a home win over the Sixers 119-108 last night, with Luol Deng going 11-of-14 for 29 points. Goran Dragic posted 23 points and 10 assists for his new team.
The 119 points were a season-high for scoring for the Heat, and Deng has now hit the 20-point mark eight times this year.

NBA News: Player News and Updates for 2/24/15


Bulls-Bucks: If you’re trying to find a game that shows why the Bulls could win the NBA Championship this year, this isn’t the one to point to--or maybe it is, depending on how you look at things. Chicago couldn’t shoot, but were able to out-rebound the Bucks 62-41 at United Center last night the result was an 87-71 victory. Pau Gasol managed 15 points and 10 rebounds while Tony Snell put up 20.

Rockets-Timberwolves: James Harden is having quite the year, and it continued last night against the Timberwolves. He posted 31 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the 113-102 victory, which was his second triple-double this year.
Ironically enough, Harden missed his first seven shots.
Minnesota can take a little solace in the fact that young Andrew Wiggins led the team back from nine points down at the start of the fourth. The comeback eventually fell flat, though.

Nets-Nuggets: Brook Lopez had a solid night against the Nuggets in Denver, leading the team to a 110-82 victory. He posted 19 points along with six other Brooklyn players who were in double-figures.
Markel Brown managed 10 points and 11 rebounds for a double-double in his first start this year, while Deron Williams managed 16 points and 12 assists.
