NBA Player Updates 4/4: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
April 4, 2015
After a busy 10-game schedule in the NBA last night, we’ve got another 10 games coming our way this evening. The playoff races are really heating up, and there’s all kinds of drama out there on the court. In the meantime, let’s check out some of the notable players and storylines out there.
Pacers-Hornets: The Pacers need to go on a stellar run if they’re going to make the playoffs this year. Last night’s 93-74 win over the Hornets was a good start. Rodney Stuckey led the Pacers with 15 points off the bench, while C.J. Watson managed 13 points and four steals.
It was a big win for Indy, who came in after two straight losses.

Knicks-Wizards: John Wall scored just six points on 3-of-13 shooting last night against the Knicks. He was able to dominate the Knicks in other ways, however. He posted 18 points (a career-high) in just three quarters of work, leading the Wizards to a 101-87 win.
Wall has been a dynamo over the last five games, scoring 91 points in the first three and posting 33 assists in the last two.
Bucks-Celtics: The Bucks were able to stop their road woes last night, avoiding a 12th straight loss away from home. They put up a 110-101 win over the Celtics in Boston, using a second-half surge to get over the top.
Even with all the road woes, Milwaukee is still 2 ½ games ahead of the Nets for the No. 6 playoff slot in the East.
Nets-Raptors: Speaking of the Nets, let’s visit with them. Brooklyn got a win last night in New York, getting past the Raptors 114-109. They’ve now won six in a row, which is a season-high.
Deron Williams put up his highest points total of the year (31) while Brook Lopez managed 30 points and 17 rebounds for Brooklyn. It was his fifth 30-point game in the last nine outings.
