Spurs run out of gas, lose to Suns 89-94

In a typical early season game in which both teams looked worse than they are, the Suns were able to come from behind and outlast the Spurs I'm sure most people were expecting a barn burner, since these two teams were amazing on offense last season. But the Suns are still trying to figure out how to make up for the spacing Channing Frye provided and the Spurs are still trying to get everyone in the same page after injuries derailed their preseason preparation. So instead of a aesthetically pleasing, high-scoring affair we got an ugly mess that was only appealing due to how chaotic it felt...

Can Thunder weather a storm of injuries?

Can Thunder weather a storm of injuries?

By Darnell Mayberry, Staff WriterGoing to the Thunder game Saturday night? You might consider purchasing a game-night program. It could come in handy with nearly half the team’s roster hurt and set to sit out the home opener against the Denver Nuggets. Injuries have depleted the Thunder at the start of the 2014-15 NBA season. They have forced relatively unfamiliar players to fill in for the stars fans have come to know and love. Instead of rooting for Russell Westbrook, you’ll be cheering for Sebastian Telfair.Read more on NewsOK.com

Nets try to bounce back in Detroit

That didn't go particularly well. With a new coach, some new players, and an opponent that doesn't figure to be great on offense this year, the Nets got obliterated by the Boston Celtics on Opening Night. Admittedly, it's only one game out of a long 82 game season, but the Nets definitely have some things they need to work on. Waiting for the Brooklyn Nets will be the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons have gotten off to a slow start, losing to Denver and Minnesota on the road. This is the third game four nights for the Pistons, but more importantly, it's the home opener. With new coach Stan Van...

A night of firsts for Bucks rookie Jabari Parker

In what’s going to be a season defined by firsts for Jabari Parker, the Milwaukee Bucks’ rookie forward got quite a few out of the way Friday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. First double-double. First three-pointer. First victory.

Butler, Bulls still confident deal will be done

CHICAGO -- Jimmy Butler wants to stay in Chicago. The Bulls want Butler to stay in Chicago. So why did Friday night's deadline pass without an extension being reached on both sides? While neither party wanted to come out and say it, it sounds like one of the biggest reasons was because of the new $24 billion dollar television deal the league signed earlier this month with ESPN and Turner. Butler, and his agent, Happy Walters, believe he is worth more than the Bulls were offering.

Lakers empower Lin, and he responds

LOS ANGELES -- Tie score with t-minus five minutes -- around these parts, that's Kobe Bryant's time. He's been the proprietor of the ball under those circumstances for a while now. On Friday night, in said scenario, he was calling for it yet again. But Jeremy Lin said no. The first-year Los Angeles Lakers point guard waved off the team's volume-shooting star, drove right off a pick-and-roll and heaved a prayer-like 3-pointer with Chris Paul in his mug and the shot clock near expiration.

Slowing Dwight Howard no small feat

WALTHAM — The Celtics caught a bit of a break as the Brooklyn Nets were missing big man Brook Lopez during an impressive 121-105 opening night victory on Wednesday. They won’t be as lucky tonight, when they visit perhaps the most dominant center in the league.Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets welcome the Celtics in the second game of the season. Controlling the 6-foot-11 center on both ends of the floor is job No. 1, but it won’t be just one Celtic’s duty.
