We’ve got another half-dozen games in the NBA to look forward to tonight, much like last night’s six-game set. In the meantime, let’s check out our daily headlines and see which players are in the news right now.
Rockets-Pacers: It seems like every time the Rockets step on the floor, James Harden is tearing up the score sheet. That’s what happened last night against the Pacers in Indianapolis, when he scored 44 points. 19 of those points came in the fourth quarter alone during a 110-100 victory.
The Pacers have lost six in a row now, while the Rockets have won four of five games and stand at 47-23 on the season.
