December 13, 2015
We’re coming off a busy day in the NBA, but only have four games on the slate today. That said, there’s still plenty to talk about this morning, so let’s take our daily look at the notable players and stats in the news today.
Clippers-Nets: The Clippers went into yesterday’s game with a seven-game road losing streak against the Nets. They were able to halt that trend here with a 105-100 victory.
Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick each managed 21 points, while Chris Paul doubled up on 15 points and 14 assists.
The Clippers hadn’t won against the Nets in a road game in just over eight years, dating back to when the franchise was in New Jersey.

Pistons-Pacers: The Pistons were able to outscore the Pacers by a margin of 74-50 through the second and third quarters yesterday, en route to a 118-96 victory.
Reggie Jackson posted 21 points and nine assists here, while Ersan Ilyasova put up 20. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 18 points, eight assists (a career-high) and seven rebounds.
The Pistons have won six of their last eight games.
Knicks-Blazers: The Knicks came into last night’s game in Portland as the losers of four straight games. They were able to buck that trend, however, eking out a 112-110 victory.
Carmelo Anthony managed 37 points here, which tied a season-high. He scored 20 in the first half and was 13-of-21 overall.
The Knicks’ bench helped out quite a bit in overcoming a 10-point deficit in the fourth, with Lance Thomas (13 points) and Kyle O’Quinn (14 points) heading up the charge.
Bucks-Warriors: We’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about the Warriors’ first loss of the season. It came last night against the Bucks in Milwaukee, following a 108-95 outcome.
The Warriors had won 28 straight regular-season games in all, which was just five off the all-time record.
Greg Monroe put up 28 points here, while Stephen Curry had 28 on 10-of-21 shooting on the other side. Curry was 2-of-8 from 3-point range.
As a team, the Warriors were just 6-of-26 from beyond the arc.
