NBA Player Updates 1/19: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
January 19, 2016
After a busy Monday, the NBA is taking it a little easy tonight with just four games on the schedule. While we’re waiting on those, let’s check out our daily wrap-up of some of the key players and stats from around the league.
Knicks-Sixers: In yesterday’s early game, the Knicks had a heck of a time taking care of the Sixers at the Garden.
It took New York two overtimes to get a 119-113 win, thanks to Carmelo Anthony’s game-tying shot at the end of regulation. He was just 7-of-28 from the field, but made the one he had to have.
The Knicks led this game by 18 points in the third quarter, but let the persistent Sixers back in it.
Kristaps Porzingis had 16 points and 12 rebounds, but sat out both overtimes with a foot injury.

Marc Gasol had 16 points and 10 rebounds. Matt Barnes and Jeff Green contributed 16 points each, while Mike Conley had 15 points and 10 assists.
Anthony Davis put up 21 points, eight rebounds and three blocks in the losing effort.

Pau Gasol led the way here with 31 points and 12 rebounds, while Derrick Rose added another 20 points.
Ersan Ilyasova put up a double-double on the other side with 19 points and 11 rebounds.
