2016-17 season

Post by Jermaine2015 on Wed 26 Oct 2016, 9:18 pm

Opening night results:

Cleveland Cavaliers 117-88 New York Knicks
Portland Trail Blazers 113-104 Utah Jazz
Golden State Warriors 100-129 San Antonio Spurs

The Warriors 'Super team' lacked cohesion as the Spurs ripped them apart. Kevin Durrant scored 27 on debut, but Kawhi Leonard silenced the Oracle Arena with a career best 35 point game.

Russell Westbrook took his Oklahoma City Thunder to the Oracle arena last night for the much anticipated showdown with Kevin Durant. Westbrook turned up wearing hi-vis bib with a message to former buddy Durant...post match Westbrook must've regretted firing up KD. Durant dropped 39 with 7 3s as the Warriors routed the Thunder 122-96. It's starting to click now for the Warriors 'super team' after the blow out loss on opening night, it's 4 straight wins now.

I really hope they don't win it all, though. Was nice to see them get taken down a notch by the Spurs on opening night. Here's hoping the wheels fall off, however unlikely that might be.

doesn't look good for the nba's competitive balance, that durant move. just looks a nailed on Cleveland/Warriors final repeat.

Knicks currently 1-3, even with Rose, Noah & Carmelo. Need them to start gelling quick

Can't wait for Christmas Day, the Warriors go to Cleveland. Should be a barn stormer!

As for the competitive balance I've got no issue with Golden State being loaded with stars, it increases the spectical. Even the neutrals tune in to see if the 'Super team' lost.

As for the Warriors, it seems as though they are built around Durant and he's being pushed for the MVP. No egos at Golden State, Curry and Thompson still give it their all.

The Los Angeles Lakers handed the Golden State Warriors an embarrassing 117-97 defeat last. One step forward two backwards as present for Steve Kerr

Curry is the best pure shooter I've ever seen. But this is even ridiculous for Curry's standards after his 157 game streak of scoring at least one 3 pointer ended against the Lakers(where Curry was 0-10 from downtown)

Defending champions Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Atlanta Hawks last night. Cavaliers 6-1 for the season and thus meaning there are no team undefeated

Curry was bound to break that record eventually.

The NBA is looking more open than some thought it would so far.

Cavs, Spurs, Hawks, Bulls, Raptors, Warriors and Thunder all look good.

Golden State Warriors improved to 6-2 with a 116-95 victory over the declining Dallas Mavericks. Klay Thompson improved his output as well. Could be ominous...

Atalanta Hawks also improved to 6-2 with a 115-107 win against the inconsistent Chicago Bulls

Anyone see the Hawks fan propose to his girlfriend at half time? I reckon KD will move to Atlanta to try to get the ring...

Warriors improved to 7-2 with a 125-101 victory over the Denver Nuggets. Stephen Curry's good form continued with 33 points. Kevin Durant's 72 regular season game streak of 20+ points was broken after he could only manage 18 points.

Don't see KD leaving Warriors if they keep hold of Curry, Thompson and Green. It's the best route to win multiple rings.

New York Knicks struggling 5-7 thus far. Lost a high scoring game against the Washington Wizards. 119-112 the final score but the Knicks dropped 47 points in the fourth quarter...a little to late to mount their comeback.

11-2 For the Warriors. The Bucks came strong at the end but too little too late as the warriors won again. They're getting there. Quarters two and three were absolutely breathtaking. One and two less so

Kevin Love dropped an NBA record 34 points in the first quarter against Portland Trailblazers. Just falling short of Klay Thompson's any quarter record of 37 points. Cavaliers ended up running out 137-125 winners. Cavaliers improved to 11-2.

Golden State Warriors improved to 13-2 with a crushing 149-106 win over the Lakers. Curry, Durant and Thompson combined to drop 85 points. The Warriors landed a franchise record 47 assists. Scary good.

Klay Thompson went beast mode last night dropping a career best 60 points. Thompson was withdrawn with 1.22 left in the third and didn't play the fourth. Otherwise he could've got near 100 points. Warriors destroyed the Pacers 142-106. Second straight win since the reversal to the Rockets.

The Cleveland Cavaliers ended their 3 games skid with a hard fought 116-112 win over the Toronto raptors.

Warriors a league best 18-3
Cavaliers 14-5
