NBA Player Updates 10/29: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
October 29, 2015
After a heavy dose of NBA action last night, the league is taking its foot off the gas pedal this evening with just three games on the schedule. Let’s check out some of the notable players and stats in our daily look at the headlines.
Bulls-Nets: The Bulls are off to a strong start, moving to 2-0 with a win last night in Brooklyn. Jimmy Butler posted 24 points to help his team to the 115-100 win, while Nikola Mirotic put up 18 of his own. Pau Gasol (16 points) and Derrick Rose (15 points) also had nice nights for the suddenly offense-heavy Bulls.
On the other side, Brook Lopez put up 26 points and Andrea Bargnani managed 17. They were 0-of-9 from 3-point range as a team.

Cavaliers-Grizzlies: The Cleveland-Memphis game last night was about as one-sided as you can get. The Cavs were leading by double-digits in the first quarter, then turned that into a 106-76 victory at the end of the game. They led by as many as 32.
Kevin Love doubled up with 17 points and 13 rebounds, while Richard Jefferson put up 14 points. LeBron James and two others had 12; James went 4-of-13 from the field.
Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol each had a dozen points for the Grizzlies.
Knicks-Bucks: The Knicks have a very different look to them this year, following their franchise-worst season in 2014-15. They played well in their opener, however, cruising to a 122-97 win over the Bucks in Milwaukee.
Derrick Williams put up 24 points, while first-round pick Kristaps Porzingis logged 16 in his first NBA game. The key stretch here was a 15-0 run in the first half, and New York never looked back.
Thunder-Spurs: In one of the more anticipated opening West matchups out there, the Thunder edged the Spurs 112-106 in Oklahoma City last night. It was a nice victory in the NBA coaching debut of Billy Donovan.
Russell Westbrook put up 33 points and 10 assists, helping the Thunder close a seven-point gap in the fourth to come out with the victory. Enes Kanter logged 15 points and 16 rebounds off the bench.
