Rockets forward Ryan Anderson will not play in Sunday's game against the Thunder with a right ankle sprain. This will be the fifth game Anderson has missed this season due to injury. Last year, Anderson missed 16 games to health reasons when he played with New Orleans.

The Joakim Noah 20-game suspension likely gives Willy Hernangomez a chance to start the season at center for the Knicks. Hernangomez, a rookie, has played well offensively for New York this season but has struggled at times on defense. The Knicks could also choose to play a smaller lineup with Kristaps Porzingis at center.

Seventy points can come in many different forms. For the South Carolina Gamecocks, it came from six different scorers in their 70-50 win over Baylor in Friday night's Sweet 16 matchup. For the Phoenix Suns, it was simply Devin Booker, who put on a show and made NBA history by scoring 70 points in the Suns' 130-120 loss to the Celtics.

Devin Booker never reached 20 pts in college. He had never reached 40 pts in the NBA. Last night, he scored 70.
