TV:

Last night was a very busy evening for NBA action, and we’ve got more coming our way in the next several hours. While we’re waiting for tonight’s tip-offs, let’s check in on some of the notable players out there and see how everyone’s doing.

Pacers-Cavs: Last night in Indianapolis, the Pacers stopped the surging Cavaliers in their tracks, posting a 93-86 victory. George Hill was the big contributor here, notching a triple-double on 15 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. It was the first triple-double of his career.
The Cavs weren’t at full strength for this one; LeBron James was out with a sore back and Kyrie Irving was out with an injured shoulder.

USA TODAY Sports

Hawks-Magic: The Hawks burst out to a 19-3 lead early on in this one, but had to hold off the Magic from making a big comeback. The end result was a 95-88 win in Atlanta.
Paul Millsap put up 20 points (14 coming in the first quarter alone) as the Hawks blew their early lead to a 42-45 deficit at halftime. Nikola Vucevic managed 21 points to lead the Magic back into it, but the effort wasn’t enough as Orlando fell short.

Celtics-Hornets: Speaking of overcoming big deficits, the Celtics did just that last night against the Hornets in Boston. The team overcame a 16-point margin to eventually take a 106-98 win at home.
Isaiah Thomas led the new-look Celtics with 28 points, 21 of which came in the second half. Jonas Jerebko added 16 points and 10 rebounds for his first double-double since 2011-12.

Knicks-Pistons: Anytime the Knicks win a game these days, it’s front-page news. They did just that last night in Auburn Hills against the Pistons, but it took them double overtime to get there.
New York got the win 121-115, keyed by Shane Larkin’s 3-point play as time wound down. The Knicks overcame quite a deficit to get there, including an 18-point Detroit lead in the second quarter and a 12-point margin at the half.
