Preview: 76ers at Raptors
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The Toronto Raptors will try to maintain their recent dominance of the Philadelphia 76ers when the Atlantic Division foes meet Saturday night in Canada. The Raptors have won 15 of the last 16 meetings and nine in a row at home, and they enter this one on a good note after a cakewalk in their opener.

Jonas Valanciunas had 23 points and 15 rebounds in Thursday's 117-100 win over Chicago as Toronto overcame a rocky season debut for All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan, who finished with 11 points on 2-of-9 shooting. The 76ers faltered down the stretch in a 102-92 home loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday to fall to 0-2 on the young season. Big man Joel Embiid struggled to produce 11 points on 4-of-16 shooting - including 0-for-6 from 3-point range - and will sit this one out as the team continues to monitor his workload following multiple lower-body injuries in his brief NBA career. Rookie Ben Simmons has consecutive double-doubles to begin the season for Philadelphia but is 11-for-26 from the floor.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN Philadelphia, Sportsnet One (Toronto)

ABOUT THE 76ERS (0-2): Inconsistency was an issue for Philadelphia on Friday, with veteran starters Jerryd Bayless and JJ Redick combining to make 8-of-13 3-pointers with zero turnovers while most of the young stars struggled to keep up. Embiid, Simmons, top pick Markelle Fultz and reserve forward Dario Saric shot a collective 30.4 percent from the floor, missed all 10 of their 3-point attempts and turned the ball over 13 times. Big man Jahlil Okafor (illness) has yet to see any action this season but is expected to get some minutes Saturday night with Embiid sidelined.

ABOUT THE RAPTORS (1-0): While DeRozan struggled and star point guard Kyle Lowry (12 points) was not a major factor, Toronto rode its second unit to victory, particularly forward C.J. Miles (22 points) and guard Delon Wright (13). "It gives them a good identity with the second unit," coach Dwane Casey told reporters. "And that's what we want to do is develop those guys and make sure they establish that and maintain it." Miles has made 17-of-28 3-pointers over his last three games going back to preseason.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Lowry averaged 22.7 points while making 14-of-24 3-pointers in three games against Philadelphia last season.

2. Simmons is averaging 14.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and five assists through his first two games.

3. Toronto averaged 119.3 points in its three wins against Philadelphia last season.

PREDICTION: Raptors 116, 76ers 106

Preview: Magic at Cavaliers
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers are seeking to defeat the visiting Orlando Magic for the 18th consecutive time when the teams square off Saturday. Cleveland's streak is the longest current run of success in any NBA head-to-head series with Orlando's last victory over the Cavaliers occurring Nov. 23, 2012.

The Cavaliers have recorded consecutive solid victories to open the season and received 24 points and eight assists from forward LeBron James in Friday's impressive 116-97 road win over the Milwaukee Bucks. "(We) have seven new guys and we're still working on our lineups and things of that nature," said James afterward, "so to come in on their home floor where they play pretty well, it's a big win for us." Orlando dropped a 126-121 decision to the host Brooklyn Nets on Friday as power forward Aaron Gordon missed the game with a sprained left ankle and point guard Elfrid Payton exited in the second quarter with a hamstring injury. Magic center Nikola Vucevic established career highs of 41 points and six 3-pointers while carrying the team against the Nets.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN Florida (Orlando), FSN Ohio (Cleveland)

ABOUT THE MAGIC (1-1): Vucevic was an incredible 17-of-22 from the field against the Nets and is averaging 30 points and 12.5 rebounds through two games. "I can't imagine him having a better game than he did," Orlando coach Frank Vogel said afterward. "His shot making was ridiculous." Gordon has a chance at returning after a one-game absence but Payton might not be available and Vogel said the Magic would wait to see how he feels Saturday before determining his status.

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS (2-0): The Cleveland bench is filled with backcourt players and wings who are former NBA starters and Friday was 36-year-old Kyle Korver's turn to shine. Korver knocked down 5-of-6 3-point attempts while scoring 17 points and resembling the form that has seen him make 2,054 long-range shots in his 15-year career. Kevin Love's move to center has started well as he is averaging 16 points and 11.5 rebounds with back-to-back double-doubles but new point guard Derrick Rose injured an ankle Friday and will likely sit out versus the Magic.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Cavaliers won last season's three meetings by an average of 12.7 points.

2. Cleveland SG Dwyane Wade is averaging six points on 5-of-17 shooting in his first two games with the team.

3. Orlando PF Jonathan Isaac, the sixth overall pick of June's draft, started in place of Gordon and had nine points but corralled only one rebound in 23 minutes.

PREDICTION: Cavaliers 123, Magic 103

Preview: Pacers at Heat
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The Miami Heat are expected to be without center Hassan Whiteside, who led the league in rebounding last season, when they open a six-game homestand Saturday night against the revamped Indiana Pacers. Whiteside registered 26 points and 22 boards in the season-opening 116-109 loss at Orlando, but suffered a bruised left knee during a collision with Magic center Nikola Vucevic.

“He’s doing treatment and he’s feeling better,” said Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, whose team was outrebounded against Orlando to lose a season opener for the first time in seven years. “We’ll just have to go from there.” The Heat will have to lean more on guard Goran Dragic, who posted 17 points and six assists in the opener, and get a big effort defensively against an Indiana team that scored 140 points in its season debut before struggling Friday. The Pacers are also expected to be without a key player as center Myles Turner missed Friday’s 114-96 home setback against Portland with a concussion and a sore neck after recording 21 points to go along with 14 boards in the season-opening win over Brooklyn. Indiana, which begins a three-game road trip, shot 44.9 percent from the field in the loss after draining 52 percent on Wednesday night.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN Indiana, FSN Sun (Miami)

ABOUT THE PACERS (1-1): Turner’s absence left a void inside, but 6-10 rookie T.J. Leaf came off the bench to pour in 17 points in 19 minutes after going scoreless in his career debut on 0-for-1 shooting. Victor Oladipo, acquired from Oklahoma City in the Paul George trade, also finished with 17 points on Friday but was held to 5-of-17 from the field while second-year pro Domantas Sabonis scored three following a 16-point effort against Brooklyn. Point guard Darren Collison, who was the other key pickup in the offseason, averaged 17.5 points and 7.5 assists in his first two games.

ABOUT THE HEAT (0-1): Newcomer Kelly Olynyk is likely to take Whiteside’s spot at center after the former Boston Celtic scored 10 points in his Miami debut and perhaps there will be a few more minutes for rookie big man Bam Adebayo up front. Dion Waiters scored 15 against Orlando on Wednesday despite reportedly being bothered by an ankle injury that kept him out of several games last season, but he is likely to be in the lineup against the Pacers. Former Duke standout Justise Winslow scored 10 points off the bench in the opener after missing all but 18 games last season due to injury.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Pacers have drained just 13 of their 52 attempts from 3-point range in the first two contests.

2. Miami PF James Johnson had 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting and eight assists in 19 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

3. The Heat has won four of the last five meetings, but lost the last matchup at Indiana 102-98 last March.

PREDICTION: Pacers 110, Heat 98

Preview: Pistons at Knicks
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

Despite splitting their first two games of the season, the Detroit Pistons are showing some signs they might be poised to improve upon last year's 37-45 campaign. The Pistons continue a stretch of three games in four days Saturday when they visit Madison Square Garden to meet the New York Knicks to wrap up a two-game road trip.

Detroit got its season started off on the right foot in its new downtown home - Little Caesars Arena - with a 102-90 victory over Charlotte on Wednesday, committing only eight turnovers while riding the hot shooting of Tobias Harris. The Pistons followed that effort by pushing Washington to the limit on the road, climbing all the way back from a 15-point deficit early in the fourth quarter before settling for a 115-111 loss to the Wizards. Kristaps Porzingis more than held his own against former teammate Carmelo Anthony with 31 points and 12 rebounds, but Enes Kanter (10) was the only other Knick who reached double figures in Thursday's 105-84 setback in Oklahoma City to the Thunder. New York battled Oklahoma City to a draw on the boards (41-41) but shot 36 percent from the field after a torrid first quarter and ended up committing 26 turnovers.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN Detroit, MSG (New York)

ABOUT THE PISTONS (1-1): Andre Drummond was well on his way to a double-double against Washington after entering the break with nine points and 10 rebounds, but he was unable to assist the Pistons during their late rally after he picked up three fouls over a 46-second span to disqualify himself late in the third quarter. While Drummond fell just short of reaching double figures, Detroit received at least 10 points from seven players, including a team-high 21 from Reggie Jackson and 20 from Avery Bradley. Henry Ellenson did not play Friday after scoring 13 points over 16 minutes in the opener, while first-round rook Luke Kennard tallied all 11 of his points in the second quarter after not playing Wednesday.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (0-1): Even though it was just one game, Porzingis appears to have embraced being the clear top option for New York, as his 25 field-goal attempts from the field were two more than his previous career high and 10 more than he averaged last season (14.9). “I feel good physically. I feel stronger. I feel more comfortable in the paint. I’ll try to stay aggressive and stay in the paint. That’s going to bring me easy points. I’ll try to do whatever I can offensively to help the team," Porzingis told reporters. First-round draft pick Frank Ntilikina, who missed both of his shots and was held scoreless over eight minutes in his NBA debut Thursday, is questionable for Saturday after spraining his left ankle in practice Friday.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. After shooting 0-for-13 from the floor Wednesday, Pistons F Stanley Johnson sank all three of his field-goal attempts - including a 3-pointer - on Friday.

2. The Knicks' 26 turnovers in the opener matched their most in a game since Dec. 3, 2008.

3. Detroit G Langston Galloway, who scored 16 points off the bench in the opener, played the first two years of his career with New York from 2014-16.

PREDICTION: Pistons 107, Knicks 94

Preview: Spurs at Bulls
Gracenote
Oct 20, 2017

LaMarcus Aldridge and Gregg Popovich cleared the air before the star forward signed a contract extension with the team, with Popovich vowing to make Aldridge more comfortable within the offense. Aldridge certainly looked comfortable in the season opener and will try to make it two straight strong performances when the Spurs visit the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

Aldridge put up 25 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs to a 107-99 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday and is getting a chance to lead the team with MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) slowly making his way back into game shape. Leonard sat out the opener and remains day-to-day while Kyle Anderson and Rudy Gay combine to fill the hole left by Leonard on both ends of the floor. The Bulls certainly won't have any sympathy if San Antonio remains shorthanded on Saturday as they move forward without guards Zach LaVine (knee) and Kris Dunn (finger) and forwards Nikola Mirotic (facial fractures, concussion) and Bobby Portis (suspension). Chicago dropped its opener 117-100 at Toronto on Thursday, two days after Portis was suspended for punching Mirotic in an altercation that left Mirotic hospitalized.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, FS Southwest (San Antonio), WGN (Chicago)

ABOUT THE SPURS (1-0): Rumors swirled last season and over the summer that Aldridge was on the trade block, but instead he and the team agreed on a three-year contract extension worth a reported $72.3 million. "He just didn't feel comfortable," Popovich told reporters while explaining his conversations with Aldridge over the summer. "It's 98.75 percent on me, and whatever's left -- because I can't subtract that much -- on him. But I tried to change him. ... I tried to make him a different player, and I think that really affected his ability to feel comfortable and confident on the court. And we took care of that, basically by me letting him know that we were going to do it differently, and that it was on me, not him." Aldridge responded by outplaying Minnesota's budding star Karl-Anthony Towns on Wednesday while logging a team-high plus-15 rating.

ABOUT THE BULLS (0-1): The only positive to come out of the Mirotic-Portis altercation was that it opened up extra playing time for rookie Lauri Markkanen, who collected 17 points and eight rebounds over 33 minutes in his NBA debut. "I thought Lauri was really good," Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters. "He ran the floor well. He was OK (defensively). We want him hunting shots. What we like most about him is he has no fear out there. He can miss two or three in a row and if he has any daylight, he's going to shoot with confidence." Kay Felder, who was picked up at the end of training camp after being waived by Atlanta, added six assists in 16 minutes off the bench.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Dunn and LaVine both traveled with the Bulls to Toronto and are practicing but both expect to sit out Saturday.

2. San Antonio F/C Pau Gasol recorded three of the team's 11 blocked shots in the opener.

3. The home team took each of the last six meetings in the series, with Chicago earning a 95-91 win on its homecourt last season.

PREDICTION: Spurs 110, Bulls 96

Preview: Mavericks at Rockets
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The Houston Rockets opened the season with an impressive 2-0 road trip, but they return home on a bit of a negative note. Star point guard Chris Paul is expected to miss up to four weeks with a bruised left knee, which will leave him out of the home opener Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Paul, acquired in a massive trade with the Los Angeles Clippers in June, initially suffered the injury in the preseason and hobbled through a season-opening win at Golden State before sitting out Wednesday's 105-100 win at Sacramento. According to reports, Houston has reached out to the camp of veteran Jameer Nelson, who was recently released by the Denver Nuggets and has cleared waivers. The Mavericks have dropped their first two games - both at home - after they were dominated on the boards in a 93-88 setback against Sacramento on Friday. Rookie Dennis Smith Jr., who was impressive in his debut against Atlanta on Wednesday, was a late scratch due to a left knee effusion.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN Southwest (Dallas), AT&T SportsNet - Southwest (Houston)

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS (0-2): Dallas was outrebounded 57-36 against Sacramento after gathering nine fewer boards in Wednesday's season-opening loss to Atlanta. Dirk Nowitzki (nine rebounds) and Nerlens Noel (six) were the only two players to grab more than four. Noel, who stepped into the starting lineup for Friday's loss after opening the season on the bench, has made all nine of his shots on the season to go along with five blocks and four steals.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (2-0): Eric Gordon started in place of Paul in Wednesday's win and finished with 25 points, although he needed 23 shots to get there. Center Clint Capela carried much of the load with 22 points on 10-of-12 shooting to go along with 17 rebounds and three steals, while James Harden moved to the point guard position and handed out nine assists versus just two turnovers. Trevor Ariza missed all five of his 3-point attempts in the victory and is 3-for-15 from the floor on the season.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Gordon is 4-for-19 beyond the arc through the first two games.

2. Nowitzki has 1,784 career 3-pointers, three behind Rashard Lewis for 13th on the NBA's all-time list.

3. Houston has won 10 of the last 13 meetings, including all four last season.

PREDICTION: Rockets 119, Mavericks 102

Preview: Warriors at Grizzlies
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The defending champion Golden State Warriors continue their three-game road trip against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday armed with their first victory of the season. After the Houston Rockets spoiled its banner-raising party 122-121 on Tuesday, Golden State regrouped with a 128-120 win over New Orleans on Friday behind 31 points from Klay Thompson and 28 from Stephen Curry.

The Warriors got a bit healthier with the return of Andre Iguodala, who recorded seven points, seven rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes Friday after missing Tuesday's opener with a bad back. Memphis is coming off a season-opening 103-91 victory over New Orleans on Wednesday that served as a coming-out party for rookie Dillon Brooks. The 45th overall selection from Oregon recorded 19 points -- the most by a Canadian-born player in his first NBA game -- and five rebounds, prompting teammate Mike Conley to tell reporters: "Man, somebody made a mistake not drafting (Brooks earlier)." Two of Golden State's 15 losses and one of their five home setbacks in 2016-17 came against the Grizzlies as the clubs split the four-game season series.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, NBCSN Bay Area (Golden State), FSN Tennessee (Memphis)

ABOUT THE WARRIORS (1-1): Draymond Green (knee) did not practice Wednesday after recording nine points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds in 28 minutes Tuesday, and contributed 10 points, seven assists and four rebounds in 29 minutes Friday. Golden State is 31-for-62 from 3-point range this season after averaging 31.2 attempts in 2016-17 while making 38.3 percent. Kevin Durant is off to a solid start, scoring 22 points Friday after totaling 20 on Tuesday, and is 16-for-31 from the floor in the two games.

ABOUT THE GRIZZLIES (1-0): The usual suspects also produced Wednesday as point guard Mike Conley scored 27 points while center Marc Gasol contributed 14 points and 11 rebounds. Chandler Parsons, who signed a four-year, $94,438,523 contract before an injury-plagued last season -- his first with Memphis, was booed by the home crowd Wednesday while scoring six points. Parsons said the booing was "tasteless,'' while Gasol told reporters: "I wasn't happy with that at all. He's one of us. Booing Chandler is like booing Mike or myself."

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Parsons averaged 14.3 points in five seasons with Houston and Dallas before slumping to 6.2 in 34 games in 2016-17.

2. Curry recorded eight assists Friday, moving past Tim Hardaway (3,926) and into second on the franchise's all-time list with 3,929. Hall of Famer Guy Rodgers had 4,855 assists with the Philadelphia Warriors (1958-62) and San Francisco Warriors (1962-66).

3. Memphis and San Antonio were the only teams to defeat Golden State twice last season.

PREDICTION: Warriors 111, Grizzlies 103

Preview: Trail Blazers at Bucks
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

Damian Lillard has his backcourt mate back in the lineup and the high-scoring duo of Lillard and CJ McCollum look to elevate Portland to a 3-0 start when the Trail Blazers visit the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. McCollum scored 28 points on 12-of-18 shooting in his season debut Friday as Portland notched a solid 114-96 road victory over the Indiana Pacers.

McCollum missed the Trail Blazers' 48-point drubbing of the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday while serving a one-game suspension for leaving the bench during an altercation in the preseason finale but was on his game against the Pacers. "It certainly helped to have CJ back," Lillard said. "But the main thing is that we continued to defend." Portland allowed an average of 86 points in its first two games while Milwaukee is prepared for another tough contest after opening with the two teams that played in last season's Eastern Conference finals. "It's the NBA," Bucks coach Jason Kidd told reporters. "There are no easy wins in this league. You can get beat on any given night. We started with Boston and Cleveland, now we have to face Portland. We've got a tough task, no matter who we're playing."

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN Northwest (Portland), FSN Wisconsin (Milwaukee)

ABOUT THE TRAIL BLAZERS (2-0): Lillard (27) and McCollum (23) combined to average 50 points per game last season and both players have fared well against Milwaukee. Lillard averaged 30.5 points, 6.5 assists, six rebounds and two steals in two games against the Bucks last season, while McCollum averaged 22 points and 3.5 assists and has scored 20 or more in three straight games against Milwaukee. Portland will look to get center Jusuf Nurkic (6-of-20 shooting in two games) going after he had six turnovers and only two rebounds Friday after having 11 points and 11 rebounds in the season opener.

ABOUT THE BUCKS (1-1): All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 35.5 points on 28-of-44 shooting after contributing 34 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in Friday's 116-97 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. "Giannis did a really good job trying to find the open guy and being aggressive," Kidd said afterward. "He scored a lot of points but he needs his teammates to make some open shots and take the pressure off him." Reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon was the lone other player in double digits (16 points) against the Cavaliers and is averaging 17.5 points.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Bucks won both of last season's meetings and have prevailed in four of the past five matchups.

2. Portland PF Al-Faroqu Aminu is averaging 14 rebounds through two games after collecting 16 against Indiana.

3. Milwaukee SG Khris Middleton (11.5 average) is 9-of-27 from the field, including 1-of-10 from 3-point range.

PREDICTION: Bucks 109, Trail Blazers 104

Preview: Kings at Nuggets
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The Denver Nuggets made significant strides last season in large part because they could score with just about anyone. After a lackluster offensive effort in their opener, the Nuggets look to get their rhythm going when they host the Sacramento Kings on Saturday in their first home game of the season.

Denver, which ranked third in the NBA in scoring in 2016-17 at 111.7 points per game, had 21 turnovers and managed just 12 free-throw attempts in a 106-96 loss at Denver on Wednesday. "We couldn't score. We couldn't execute. We couldn't value the ball," coach Michael Malone said. "And that led to (the Jazz) getting whatever they wanted on the offensive end." Included in the struggle was a scoreless second half for standout big man Nikola Jokic, who finished with seven points. The Kings picked up their first win of the season Friday in Dallas, riding a balanced attack and a dominant effort on the boards to a 93-88 triumph.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, NBCSN California (Sacramento), Altitude (Denver)

ABOUT THE KINGS (1-1): Guard George Hill has settled in well with his new team, following up a 16-point showing in Wednesday's loss to Houston with a team-high 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting against Dallas. Nineteen-year-old rookie De'Aaron Fox was just 4-of-13 from the floor Friday but posted his first career double-digit assist game with 10 helpers in 26 minutes. Veteran forward Zach Randolph had 13 points in his team debut after missing the opener due to oral surgery.

ABOUT THE NUGGETS (0-1): Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay battled it out for the starting point guard spot in the preseason, but the situation remains fluid and neither stood out in the opener. "We're excited about the future for both of those guys," Malone said. "We're (going to) live with their mistakes and let them play through their mistakes." Murray, who received the start against Utah, was 2-for-6 from the floor in 20 minutes and Mudiay went 3-for-8 in 19 minutes, with both players chipping in just two assists apiece.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Kings C Willie Cauley-Stein has back-to-back double-doubles to open the season.

2. Nuggets SG Gary Harris hit all three of his 3-point tries against Utah after finishing 10th in the NBA beyond the arc (42 percent) last season.

3. Sacramento rookie SF Justin Jackson has seven points and zero assists in 36 minutes through the first two games.

PREDICTION: Nuggets 108, Kings 99

Preview: Thunder at Jazz
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

Paul George and Carmelo Anthony needed only one regular-season game playing with reigning league MVP Russell Westbrook to understand how special their time could be together. The star-studded trio attempts to power Oklahoma City to its third 2-0 start in as many years when the Thunder visit the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

"I'm used to watching it. I'm used to going up against it. Now, to be on the other side of that on the same team as (Westbrook), and to reap those benefits of what he can bring to the game - I'm excited about what we started out tonight, what we created tonight and where we're headed," Anthony told reporters after scoring 22 points in Thursday's 105-84 rout of the New York Knicks. George tallied 28 points to complement yet another triple-double from Westbrook, who finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 16 assists. “There's nobody that can stay in front of Russ, so he's always going to attract two (defenders). A lot of times I'm going to be catching wide open,” George told The Oklahoman. The Jazz opened their season with a 10-point home win against Denver on Wednesday but were unable to string together consecutive victories as they gave up a go-ahead 3-pointer with less than 30 seconds remaining in a 100-97 loss at Minnesota on Friday.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, FSN Oklahoma (Oklahoma City), AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain (Utah)

ABOUT THE THUNDER (1-0): Oklahoma City's new fast-paced offense appeared to be in midseason form - the Thunder held a 35-8 advantage in transition points - but Westbrook still committed seven turnovers and the team went 11-for-38 beyond the arc. Patrick Patterson, another one of Oklahoma City's offseason additions, is expected to see more than the seven scoreless minutes he played versus New York as the team tries to ease him back after he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in August. “Hopefully, we can try to find a way to get him some more minutes against Utah. I think it's important that we get him acclimated and get him in there playing.” Thunder coach Billy Donovan told The Oklahoman.

ABOUT THE JAZZ (1-1): Ricky Rubio thrived in his first game back in Minnesota with 19 points, 10 assists and five rebounds, while backcourt mate Rodney Hood rebounded from a quiet opener versus the Nuggets with 20 points on Friday. However, Hood's night ended after only 24 minutes when he was hurt while defending Jamal Crawford midway through the fourth quarter; he was unable to put any weight on his left leg and was carried off by teammates before he was eventually diagnosed with a calf strain. Rudy Gobert finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds versus the Timberwolves to record his second double-double in as many games and the sixth in his last seven regular-season contests.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Westbrook's triple-double against New York was the 80th of his career.

2. Rubio became the first Jazz player to have back-to-back games with at least 10 assists since Shelvin Mack in March of 2016.

3. Oklahoma City's 38 3-point attempts were the franchise's most in a game since the Seattle SuperSonics hoisted up 39 on Nov. 16, 2004.

PREDICTION: Thunder 111, Jazz 98

Preview: Suns at Clippers
Gracenote
Oct 21, 2017

The Los Angeles Clippers are experiencing a bit of a transition in the wake of Chris Paul's departure but saw why his replacement is one of the most feisty players in the NBA in their season-opening win. New point guard Patrick Beverley is a tenacious defense-first player and looks to again make an impact when the Clippers host the Phoenix Suns on Saturday.

Beverley was acquired in the deal that sent Paul to the Houston Rockets and intimidated Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball in the Clippers' 108-92 win Thursday. Beverley, who scored 10 points, repeatedly hounded Ball physically and verbally while holding the No. 2 overall pick to three points on 1-of-6 shooting and four assists in 29 minutes. The NBA All-Defensive first-team selection from last season adds a toughness quotient to the Clippers, a team that exited in the first round of the playoffs in each of the past two seasons. Phoenix has allowed an average of 128 points while losing its first two games and coach Earl Watson was dismayed with the defensive performance during Friday's 132-130 home loss against the Lakers.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, NBA TV, FSN Arizona (Phoenix), Prime Ticket (Los Angeles)

ABOUT THE SUNS (0-2): Phoenix suffered a humiliating 124-76 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in its opener and nearly matched the total with 73 first-half points in the loss to the Lakers. The trio of guards Eric Bledsoe (28 points) and Devin Booker (25) and forward TJ Warren (24) all had big outings against the Lakers but the Suns sabotaged their chances at a victory by allowing 106 points over the first three quarters. "If these two programs are the future of the NBA, there's no defense in the future. It's defenseless," Watson said of his team and the Lakers. "It was like offense versus offense and whoever made the most shots at the end won. We have to change that."

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (1-0): Los Angeles is essentially Blake Griffin's team after the departure of Paul and the power forward acted like it with 29 points and 12 rebounds in the opener. Keeping Griffin healthy is a pivotal ingredient this season after he has played in fewer than 70 games in each of the past three seasons - 67, 35 and 61 last season. The Clippers are hoping small forward Danilo Gallinari will prove to be a solid fit with Griffin but the former Denver Nuggets' standout had 11 points on only 3-of-13 in the opener after dealing with a foot injury during the preseason.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Clippers averaged 118.3 points while sweeping last season's four meetings.

2. Los Angeles C DeAndre Jordan collected 24 rebounds in the opener, three shy of his career high.

3. Phoenix SF Josh Jackson, the fourth overall pick in June's draft, has scored in double digits in both games and is averaging 11.5 points.

PREDICTION: Clippers 124, Suns 97
