February 1, 2016
The busy run of NBA games continues tonight with nine matchups on the schedule. While we’re waiting on tip-offs, let’s check out some of the notable players around the league in the news today.
Clippers-Bulls: The Clippers didn’t have a whole lot of trouble with the Bulls last night. They cruised to a 120-93 victory in Los Angeles, marking their fourth straight win.
In those four games, the Clips’ bench has outscored their opponents 184-78.
J.J. Redick posted 21 points in this one, while DeAndre Jordan had 17 points and 20 rebounds. Jamal Crawford led the way with 26 points, and the team is doing just fine without Blake Griffin.

Heat-Hawks: The Heat took care of the Hawks last night in Miami, ending their January on the right foot.
Chris Bosh put up 18 points in the 105-87 victory, which gives the Heat four straight wins.
Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng each had 17 points for the 27-21 Heat, who are now in first in the Southeast. They’re fourth in the Eastern Conference overall, even with an ugly 9-8 mark in January.
Warriors-Knicks: Even though Stephen Curry only scored 13 points on 5-of-17 shooting, the Warriors still used their hot-shooting ways to overcome the Knicks 116-95 at the Garden. New York hung in there most of the way, but was ultimately no match for the raining jumpers.
Klay Thompson posted 17 of his 34 points in the second quarter, which helped wake the team up from a slow start. Draymond Green had a his franchise-record-tying ninth triple-double this year with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
Lakers-Hornets: The Lakers tied a franchise record last night, but it’s not one they want to have. They lost their 10th game in a row, falling to the visiting Hornets 101-82.
Charlotte was on the last stop of a four-game trip and had lost two straight. They were also missing four important players with injuries.
Still, Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist each put up 19 points and 12 rebounds to lead the way.
The only other time the Lakers lost 10 straight games was back in 1994 under Magic Johnson, who was the team’s interim coach.
