NBA Player Updates 11/3: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 3, 2015
We’ve got another busy evening ahead of us in the NBA, but before we settle in and get set for those tip-offs, let’s check out some of the notable players and stats in the headlines this morning.
Cavaliers-Sixers: It was a red-letter date for the Cavs’ LeBron James last night in Philly. He passes another milestone in becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 25,000-point mark, dropping 22 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds in a 107-100 victory.
James is the sixth active player to hit the 25,000 mark and No. 20 overall. He broke the age mark previously held by the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant.

Spurs-Knicks: Speaking of milestones, the Spurs’ Tim Duncan hit one yesterday as well. The 94-84 win at the Garden was his 954th victory with one team, which is a new NBA record previously held by John Stockton of the Jazz. Duncan is 954-381 overall in just over 19 seasons.
Duncan logged 16 points and 10 rebounds against a scrappy Knicks team that refused to go away. Carmelo Anthony struggled again on the other side, putting up 19 points on a poor 4-of-17 shooting.
Thunder-Rockets: James Harden was determined to get the winless Rockets into the right column, and he did that against the Thunder last night in Houston. He scored 37 points to lead his team to a 110-105 victory and the first loss of the year for OKC.
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant each missed 3-pointers on the final possession that would have tied things up at 108. Dwight Howard then sealed the win with a pair of free throws.
Grizzlies-Warriors: In what was touted as a banner matchup on last night’s schedule, the Warriors made short work of the Grizzlies in Oakland, shredding the visitors 119-69.
Stephen Curry scored 30 points here, with 21 coming in a high-intensity stretch in the third. His team outscored Memphis 72-27 during the second and third quarters. The result was the worst loss in Grizzlies history.
This was the Warriors’ first 50-point win in exactly 24 years to the day--a 153-91 victory over the Kings.
