Green scored 23 points in Saturday's 106-83 win at Indiana.

Nowitzki had a tough night Saturday, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-18 shooting in the loss to Houston.

11/23/2014 Mario Chalmers, G
Chalmers scored 24 points in Saturday's 99-92 win at Orlando.

11/23/2014 James Harden, G-F
Harden had 32 points, going 12 of 13 from the free-throw line in Saturday's win over Dallas.
