NBA Player Updates 11/8: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 8, 2015
After a whopping 19 games in just two days, the NBA is easing things up today with just five matchups on the schedule. While we’re waiting on those tip-offs, let’s check out some of the key players and stats in our daily wrap-up.
Bulls-Timberwolves: Last night at United Center, the Bulls made some very dubious history. The team failed to score a point in overtime against the Timberwolves, falling 102-93 and marking the first time in the franchise’s history that they didn’t record a point in an OT period.
Minnesota’s Andrew Wiggins logged 31 points here, while Karl-Anthony Towns managed 17 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks.

Spurs-Hornets: Kawhi Leonard had another strong night against the Hornets in San Antonio, helping guide the Spurs to a 114-94 win. He put up 23 points, while new teammate LaMarcus Aldridge managed 16.
This was the highest-scoring game of the season for the Spurs, who nailed eight 3-pointers in the second half. The Spurs have won both of their home games.
Warriors-Kings: It was a bit of an off-night for the Warriors against the Kings yesterday, but the defending champs still pulled it out. Stephen Curry logged 21 of his 24 points in the second half of this one, pacing his team to a 103-94 win.
Curry wasn’t shooting very well; he went 8-for-18 from the field with a dismal 2-of-10 from 3-point range.
The Warriors are 7-0, two wins away from matching their best start ever--a 9-0 mark back in 1960-61 as the Philadelphia Warriors.
Rockets-Clippers: Matchups between Houston and Los Angeles are always interesting these days, and this one was no different. James Harden powered the Rockets to a 109-105 victory with 46 points and a 5-of-10 mark from 3-point range. It was his second-straight game with at least 40 points and a season-high for him.
On the other side, the Clips’ Blake Griffin managed 35 points and 11 rebounds. Chris Paul sat out with a sore groin.
