The NBA is cooking along again today with seven matchups on the evening schedule. Before those games get going, let’s take a look at some of the key stats and players in the headlines from our daily wrap-up.
Hawks-Hornets: The Hawks looked like they’d been cooked yesterday against the Hornets when they gave up 37 points in the third quarter. The team bounced back in the fourth, tightening up on defense and eking out a 94-92 win.
Kent Bazemore posted 20 points here, while Al Horford doubled up on 16 points and 12 rebounds. The team would regain the lead for good on a key Paul Milsap 3-pointer late in the fourth.
Atlanta moves to 3-1 on the year with this win.

Spurs-Celtics: LaMarcus Aldridge made a big impact in the Spurs’ 95-87 win over the Celtics yesterday in Boston. He logged 24 points and 14 rebounds, while teammate Kawhi Leonard scored 19.
On the other side, Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 13 points. Isaiah Thomas logged 15, but went a paltry 4-of-18 from the field.
This was the first of three road games in a four-day stretch for San Antonio. They play six of their first eight games on the road this year.
Heat-Rockets: Heat fans were heading for the exits yesterday in Miami when the team was 21 points down in the second half against the Rockets yesterday.
Miami was able to spark a crazy rally, however, finishing with a 109-89 victory. They outscored the Rockets 31-12 in the third and 34-14 in the fourth.
Hassan Whiteside dropped a double-double on 25 points and 15 rebounds, while Chris Bosh put up 10--all in the fourth quarter.
This was the Heat’s largest comeback since erasing a 27-point margin against the Cavs back in early 2013.
Mavericks-Lakers: The Mavs got a win over the Lakers last night, thanks to Dirk Novitzki’s 25 points. The 103-93 victory gave coach Rick Carlisle the franchise record for career wins, with 340.
On the other side, Kobe Bryant had 15 points for the winless Lakers, going 3-of-15 from the floor. He missed his first seven shots and is 16-of-51 overall this season.
