NBA News: Player News and Updates for 3/2/15
NBA Player Updates 3/2: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
March 2, 2015
We’ve got a pretty good NBA schedule on tap within the five games we’ll be seeing tonight, so with that in mind let’s take a few moments to peruse the headlines in our daily wrap-up and see who’s in the news.
Clippers-Bulls: With all the injuries they’re experiencing right now, the Bulls were no match for the Clippers last night at United Center. Add in the fact that DeAndre Jordan dominated the boards with 26 rebounds and you’ve got most of the reason for L.A.’s 96-86 win.
Chris Paul added 28 points and 12 assists, but this night was Jordan’s. he had 17 rebounds in the first half alone and was playing in his 300th straight game. That’s the longest active streak in the NBA right now.

Rockets-Cavaliers: Speaking of big stars, the Rockets have one in James Harden, and he showed it last night against the Cavaliers in Houston. He put up 33 points in a 105-103 overtime victory, besting LeBron James and company.
James missed a pair of free throws late in the OT period which helped Houston get the win, which was pretty uncharacteristic of him.
Blazers-Kings: Out west in Sacramento yesterday, the Trail Blazers bested the Kings 110-99 for their third straight win. LaMarcus Aldridge played well as usual, posting 26 poitns and 15 rebounds.
Damian Lillard also had a good game with 31 points--nine of which came in the fourth quarter alone. He also contributed seven assists, four rebounds and three 3-pointers.
Warriors-Celtics: Whenever you talk about the Warriors, chances are the first name mentioned is Stephen Curry’s. That’s exactly the case today, as Curry posted 37 points against the Celtics last night in Boston to lead his team to an improbable 26-point comeback.
The final score was 106-101, and it was the Warriors’ seventh win in the last nine games. They’re tops in the league at 46-11.
