NBA Player Updates 4/11: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
April 11, 2016
There are just three more days of NBA action remaining in the regular season, and after that we’re headed for the playoffs. Let’s check out some of the notable players and stats in the headlines before we get set for tonight’s games.
Warriors-Spurs: Last night’s marquis matchup was, of course, the Warriors and the Spurs down in San Antonio.
Golden State made history with this one, edging out the Spurs with a 92-86 victory. This was the 72nd win of the year for the Warriors, which ties them with the ‘95-’96 Chicago Bulls for the most in a season in NBA history.
Stephen Curry logged 37 points here, helping his team stop the Spurs’ record home winning streak. San Antonio had won 48 straight regular-season games at home, and Golden State hadn’t won there since 1997--a whopping 33-game span.
The Spurs have lost three straight for the first time this season, and they rested Tim Duncan for this game.
The Warriors can get their record-setting 73rd win on Wednesday night at home against the Grizzlies.

The Rockets are one game behind the Jazz for the final playoff spot in the conference. The Jazz play the Mavericks and Lakers this week; Houston has the Timberwolves and Kings.
Pacers-Nets: Let’s finish up out east today and take a look at last night’s Pacers-Nets game. Indiana was dominant in clinching a playoff berth, taking a 129-105 home victory and knocking the Bulls from postseason contention.
