Dec. 23 8:05 PM PT9:05 PM MT10:05 PM CT11:05 PM ET4:05 GMT12:05 9:05 PM MST11:05 PM EST8:05 UAE05:0523:05 ET10:05 PM CTNaN:� - Anderson had a season-high 31 points on 10-of-18 shooting - 8 of 14 from downtown - in Friday's loss in Memphis.

Dec. 17 7:50 PM PT8:50 PM MT9:50 PM CT10:50 PM ET3:50 GMT11:50 8:50 PM MST10:50 PM EST7:50 UAE (+1)04:5022:50 ET9:50 PM CTNaN:� - Anderson bounced back from a disappointing performance with 28 points and six rebounds in Saturday's win over Minnesota.

Oct. 30 7:15 PM PT8:15 PM MT9:15 PM CT10:15 PM ET2:15 GMT10:15 7:15 PM MST9:15 PM EST6:15 UAE (+1)03:1522:15 ET8:15 PM CTNaN:� - Anderson had his best game of the young season Sunday against Dallas with 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting and 12 rebounds.
