NBA Player Updates 12/15: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
December 15, 2015
The NBA is coming off a busy evening last night, and taking a bit of a breather in the coming hours. We’ve still got four games to look forward to, however, so with that in mind let’s take our daily look at the headlines and see who’s in the news.
Pacers-Raptors: The Pacers snagged a comeback win over the Raptors last night in Indianapolis, eventually coming out on top 106-90.
George Hill had 20 points and 13 rebounds (both season-highs), while Monta Ellis put up 18 points.
The victory ended a four-game win streak for the Raptors.
Indiana had a great 39-4 run in the first half, which erased a 21-point Toronto lead.

Clippers-Pistons: We had an OT game last night in Detroit, thanks to a wild finish that saw the Clippers come out on top 105-103.
J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford hit crucial 3-pointers down the stretch to help snag the victory, while Blake Griffin finished with 34 points. Chris Paul had a double-double on 13 points and 12 assists.
Heat-Hawks: The Heat came out of a very physical game last night against the Hawks, ending up with a 100-88 victory in Atlanta. Goran Dragic lost part of a tooth in the third quarter (he was elbowed by Al Horford) but still helped out the team with three assists, three rebounds and a steal down the stretch.
Chris Bosh led the way with 24 points, while Gerald Green scored 20--11 of them coming in the fourth quarter. He was 9-of-14 from the field overall.
Bulls-Sixers: The Bulls became the latest team to beat up on the lowly Sixers, with a 115-96 victory at United Center last night.
Jimmy Butler put p 23 points, helping the team to a big second half that would seal the game.
Nikola Mirotic put up 17 points; Tony Snell scored 16; Joakim Noah put up 15 rebounds and eight assists.
The Sixers had a pretty miserable third quarter to let Chicago back in it: they had seven turnovers and a 5-of-21 mark from the field in that period.
