NBA News: Player News and Updates for 11/10/15
NBA Player Updates 11/10: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 10, 2015
The NBA continues its busy run this week with seven games on tonight’s schedule. While we’re getting settled in and waiting on those, let’s check out some of the scores and notable players in today’s headlines.
Bulls-Sixers: The hapless 76ers are still without a win this year, following a 111-88 defeat at the hands of the Bulls last night in Philadelphia. Nikola Mirotic led the team with a double-double on 20 points and 10 rebounds. Pau Gasol put up 16 of his own points to aid the cause.
Chicago had no Joakim Noah for this game but had little trouble, leading by 26 points at one spot.
The Sixers have lost 17 straight games dating back to last season. That’s the fourth-longest stretch in team history.

Timberwolves-Hawks: The Timberwolves were all over the Hawks last night, leading by 34 points before an Atlanta comeback made things interesting. When the dust settled, it was a 117-107 Minnesota victory.
Andrew Wiggins tied his career-high with 33 points, while Karl-Anthony Towns managed 17 points.
The Hawks erased the huge deficit and were even leading at one point 107-106. A 7-0 run by the T-Wolves halted that spurt in its tracks, however.
The loss stops a seven-game win streak by Atlanta, who was out-rebounded 40-27.
Nuggets-Trail Blazers: Emmanuel Mudiay offered us a glimpse at his NBA potential last night, turning in an 18-point, six-rebound, five-assist, two-block outing. He also nailed two critical free throws in the waning minutes of the Nuggets’ 108-104 win in Denver.
J.J. Hickson was instrumental here as well, posting 19 points and 13 rebounds. He also had four free throws in the later stages that helped keep the Blazers back.
Warriors-Pistons: One of the most intriguing games on last night’s schedule featured the defending champion Warriors and the Pistons in Oakland. The stat that jumps out from this game is Stephen Curry’s 22 points, which is incredibly low for him. Still, the Warriors managed to fend off the Pistons 109-95 and are still unbeaten this year.
Andre Iguodala and Leandro Barbosa put up a combined 23 points off the bench. That helped offset Curry’s off-night--he would go just 2-of-7 to start and finish 7-of-18 overall. Curry also had five rebounds and five assists.
