November 21, 2015
The 13-game NBA weekend will get started today, with seven matchups on the schedule. The action starts early this evening, but in the meantime let’s take our daily look at the headlines from around the league.
Celtics-Nets: Over in Boston last night, the Celtics posted a big win over the Nets, taking the game 120-95.
Avery Bradley scored 21 points here. He’s reached double-digits in all four games since returning from his injury (calf). Jae Crowder put up 19, while Evan Turner managed 12.
The Celtics have the Nets’ first-round draft pick in 2016, so they helped out their cause by getting a victory here.

Grizzlies-Rockets: The Grizzlies are off to a four-game win streak, thanks to a 96-84 win over the Rockets in Memphis last night. Mike Conley managed 26 points, while Marc Gasol recorded a triple-double on 16 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.
Memphis’ offense seems to be running pretty smoothly these days, with crisp passing, open looks and timely 3-point shooting.
James Harden put up 22 points to lead Houston, but was just 1-of-7 from 3-point range. Dwight Howard had 12 points and 15 rebounds.
Knicks-Thunder: The Knicks haven’t been good at finishing off games this year, but they were able to hold the Thunder last night in OKC for a big win. New York got 25 points from Carmelo Anthony in the 93-90 victory, nearly squandering a 16-point lead in the process.
Arron Affalo’s tying 3-point attempt at the buzzer rimmed out, and the Knicks escaped with the victory after a nail-biting ending sequence.
The Knicks nailed 12 of their 20 3-pointers, while the Thunder hit just 3 of their 29. That was the difference here.
Warriors-Bulls: It’s been fun watching the defending champion Warriors this season, and they recorded another victory last night against the Bulls in Oakland. Golden State posted a 106-94 win here, moving to 14-0 on the season. One more victory and they tie the NBA record for the best start in history.
Stephen Curry put up 27 points, while Harrison Barnes managed 20 points with nine rebounds. This game had 18 lead changes and 17 ties, so it was definitely intense.
The Warriors and the ‘57-’58 Celtics are the only defending champs in league history to win their first 14 games.
