We’re coming off a pretty busy night of NBA action, and heading into five more games this evening. While we’re getting set for those tip-offs, let’s take our daily look at the headlines and see who’s in the news.
Pacers-Celtics: Paul George had a big night for the Pacers against the Celtics, logging 26 points and 10 rebounds in a 100-98 victory. Jordan Hill also doubled up with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
Monta Ellis sank the decisive free throws with 13.7 seconds left to give the Pacers the edge, then the team hung on.
This was George’s second double-double of the year; he went 8-of-18 from the field and 5-of-11 from 3-point range.

Hawks-Nets: The Hawks are cruising in the early-going this year. Last night they posted their fifth straight win, a 101-87 home result against the Nets.
Al Horford posted 21 points and Dennis Schroder was close behind at 20. On the other side, Brook Lopez put up a season-high 27 while Thaddeus Young had 14. Brooklyn is now 0-5.
The second half was key to Atlanta’s win here. They scored 60 points and hit 59 percent of their shots.
Knicks-Cavaliers: After a first quarter in which they outscored the Cavaliers 34-18, the Knicks fell off the wagon the rest of the way and finished with a 96-86 loss. LeBron James put up 23 points while Mo Williams had 22. It was Cleveland’s fourth straight victory.
The fourth quarter was the decisive period here, with Cleveland outscoring New York 26-17. James had 11 of those points, but was just 9-of-23 overall.
Carmelo Anthony had another sketchy shooting night for the Knicks, but scored 17.
Clippers-Warriors: Perhaps the most interesting game on last night’s schedule was the Clippers-Warriors meeting in Oakland. The defending champs eventually took this one 112-108, with Stephen Curry pouring in 31 points. The Warriors got into a little trouble here, falling behind by 10 in the fourth quarter.
