NBA: Kerr laments Green injury after Warriors lose season opener
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 07:49:40 GMT)
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr lamented the loss of Draymond Green in Tuesday's season-opening defeat to the Houston Rockets. The Warriors started the defence of their NBA championship with a 122-121 reverse at Oracle Arena, despite having led by 17 points at one stage. With Andre Iguodala (strained back) having missed the game, the Warriors were dealt a further blow when influential forward Green sat out the fourth quarter, in which the Rockets outscored their hosts 34-20, due to a left knee strain.

Carmelo Anthony: Phil Jackson was willing “to trade me for a bag of chips”
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 20:45:51 GMT)
Carmelo Anthony wanted to be traded to the Houston Rockets. It looked at one point like a deal would get done between New York and Houston, then it fell apart. Phil Jackson was booted, that’s what happened, Anthony told Marc Stein the New York Times.

The Warriors’ championship rings have 31 diamonds in them (VIDEO)
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:01:00 GMT)
Tuesday night meant the return of NBA basketball, and of course what we all wanted to see: the Golden State Warriors. In the second game of the evening, the Warriors squared off against the Houston Rockets. Before the teams tipped, the Warriors received

Mike D'Antoni doesn't think Draymond Green's Warriors take defense seriously, either
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 18:07:17 GMT)
Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni tries to make sense of it all. If you had Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni as the first feud of an NBA season that is sure to be full of them, as this petty-fueled league always is, then congratulations, you just won a virtual pat on the back and a good chuckle courtesy of D’Antoni. It wasn’t all that incendiary, since Golden State and Houston owned the NBA’s top two offenses last season, respectively, but Green — as he is wont to do — took it as an affront to both his Defensive Player of the Year status and the Warriors’ ranking as the league’s second-best defense in 2016-17.

Kevin Durant’s game winner waived off, he didn’t get shot off in time
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:11:16 GMT)
With Draymond Green sidelined after tweaking his knee in the third quarter, the Houston Rockets were able to make a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback and upset the Golden State. Down one with 10 seconds to go, the Warriors were able to get Stephen Curry a good look at a three but he missed it. The ball was volleyballed around a little, and Durant got a hold of it and took a 15-footer along the baseline that the referees on the court ruled a game-winner — but when reviewed it left his hand a fraction of a second too late.

Pre-game celebrations affected our game - Curry
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 13:14:02 GMT)
Steph Curry admits their pre-game celebrations of last year's championship win affected their performance as they lost to the Houston Rockets on the opening day of the new NBA season

Ball expected back to lead Lakers vs. Clippers in opener
(Thu, 19 Oct 2017 09:20:33 GMT)
The Los Angeles Lakers didn't reach the playoffs the past four seasons and haven't won a playoff game since May 18, 2012, but the organization is hoping that will change now that Lonzo Ball is running the offense. Ball will get his first opportunity to begin the turnaround when the Lakers open the season against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night at Staples Center. Ball, the No. 2 overall draft pick out of UCLA in June, sat out the last four preseason games after rolling his ankle against the Denver Nuggets on Oct. 2.

MRI on Warriors forward Green's knee negative
(Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:36:08 GMT)
An MRI exam of Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green’s left knee showed no structural damage, the team announced on Thursday. Green landed awkwardly on the leg as he was fouled in the third quarter of Tuesday's season opener against the Houston

Best of NBA: Cavaliers win thriller after Celtics' Hayward goes down with injury
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:14:35 GMT)
Boston's Gordon Hayward broke his left ankle just five minutes into the season, a grisly injury that overshadowed Kyrie Irving's return to Cleveland and the Cavaliers' 102-99 win over the shocked Celtics on Tuesday night. LeBron James scored 29 points -- 13 in the fourth quarter -- in his most extensive action in three weeks because of a sprained left ankle. Irving, who asked to be traded this summer after six seasons in Cleveland, had a chance to tie it with a 3-pointer at the horn but missed.

Harden, Houston spoil another opener, win 105-100 at Kings
(Thu, 19 Oct 2017 05:18:51 GMT)
Just imagine what these Houston Rockets might look like months from now, when James Harden has a healthy Chris Paul alongside him in the backcourt and Mike D'Antoni's rotations become more consistent. Beginning the season with a tough back-to-back in Northern California hardly made for an easy start, and Houston is an impressive 2-0. Harden had 27 points and nine assists, and the Rockets made it a perfect two-game road trip despite playing this one without Paul, beating the Sacramento Kings 105-100 on Wednesday night to spoil another home team's opener.

Kevin Durant can't beat the buzzer, as the Rockets come back to stun the Warriors
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:45:37 GMT)
The Golden State Warriors kicked off the 2017-18 NBA season with a huge celebration of their 2017 NBA championship, and eager to start their pursuit of a third title in four years. With 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter of a wild season opener, the Warriors inbounded from half-court trailing the Rockets by one point. Golden State guard Shaun Livingston dribbled into the frontcourt and got the ball to star Stephen Curry, who peeled away from the defense of Houston wing Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and hoisted a 3-pointer.

Rockets spoil Warriors' opening night
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:44:40 GMT)
The new-look Houston Rockets roared back to beat NBA champions Golden State 122-121 on Tuesday, spoiling a celebratory night at the Warriors' Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Warriors marked the opening of the new season by handing out their championship rings and raising their 2016-17 championship banner. Despite a furious rally by the Rockets, the Warriors thought they had won the game with a last-gasp basket from Kevin Durant, but the clock had expired a fraction of a second before the ball left Durant's hand and it was the Rockets celebrating at the end of the night.

Rockets' Chris Paul still dealing with bruised left knee
(Thu, 19 Oct 2017 01:39:58 GMT)
Houston guard Chris Paul is out for the Rockets' game in Sacramento on Wednesday night because of a bruised left knee and coach Mike D'Antoni isn't counting on him Saturday for the home opener against Dallas. ''It's not a concern, it's just nagging,'' D'Antoni said before the game against the Kings. Paul had four points and shot 2 for 9 in the Rockets' season-opening 122-121 win at Golden State on Tuesday night but was limited by soreness in the knee.

LeBron James & Cavs’ NBA Doubleheader Season Opener Soars Almost 100% Over 2016 – Update
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 20:50:55 GMT)
UPDATE, 1:50 PM: The final scores on the court last night saw ex-champs the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Houston Rockets win the doubleheader games of the NBA season opener but now we have the other score, so to speak. Winning the night on cable for TNT, the Cavs’ victory over the Boston Celtics and the Rockets triumph over current champs the Golden State Warriors snagged an average of 4.9 million viewers. Or to put in the true dunk context, that’s a whooping 53% over the 3.2 million that the 2016 season doubleheader opener of October 25 last year delivered.

Rockets rally to spoil defending champion Warriors return
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:21:08 GMT)
Confetti began to fall and the Golden State Warriors thought they had pulled off a wild opening-night win. The Houston Rockets emphatically signaled otherwise — insisting that Kevin Durant's baseline jumper had swished through the net after the buzzer. After one official got hurt, two remaining referees reviewed the play and ruled the Rockets had escaped with a 122-121 victory Tuesday on the night the Warriors received their championship rings.

Sore knee relegates Chris Paul to bench as Rockets hold off Warriors
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 07:15:22 GMT)
Chris Paul was a crunchtime spectator during his Houston Rockets debut, cheering on his teammates from the bench for the final 4 minutes, 47 seconds of Tuesday's 122-121 comeback win over the Golden State Warriors, a decision coach Mike D'Antoni attributed to lingering soreness in the star point guard's left knee. "Dragging his leg a little bit; I had to get him out of there," D'Antoni said. Paul, the nine-time All-Star who pushed for the offseason trade from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Rockets, went to the end of the bench after subbing out but showed no sign of displeasure with D'Antoni's decision. Paul was on his feet for most of the final 4:47, smiling and rooting for his teammates, while waving a towel in celebration on several occasions.

NBA: Rockets stun Warriors, Hayward suffers gruesome injury in Celtics loss
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:59:06 GMT)
The Golden State Warriors' title defence got off to a losing start against the Houston Rockets, while the Boston Celtics went down to the Cleveland Cavaliers and lost Gordon Hayward to a serious injury. Golden State were beaten 122-121 by Houston, who rallied 34-20 in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's NBA season opener. NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant had a chance to win it on the buzzer and he actually hit a shot to give the Warriors a 123-122 lead, but after further review, the ball was still on the Warriors star's fingertips when time ran out giving James Harden and the Rockets victory.

(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 22:40:00 GMT)
The buzz of the NBA’s opening night was killed just a 5:15 into the first game when Gordon Hayward went down with what could be a season-ending ankle and leg injury. The pair also gets into the Nikola Mirotic/Bobby Portis incident in Chicago (this was recorded just before the Portis suspension came down), the LaMarcus Aldridge extension with the Spurs, and if Joel Embiid should be ticked about being on a minutes limit to start the season.

Kevin Durant hit a shot at the buzzer to beat the Rockets but it didn't count
(Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:31:41 GMT)
The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets had the second game of our NBA opening night on Tuesday, and it ended with a near game-winner by Kevin Durant. The Rockets barely pulled it out, by a final score of 122-121. The Warriors were heavy favorites coming into the season as championship favorites, so any loss would be a surprise. Durant nearly saved the day, but came up tenths of a second short of the victory. Here was the final play: The Warriors were impressive throughout, but the Rockets refused to go away. The Rockets had three players with 20-plus points, including James Harden who had 27, P.J. Tucker who had 20, and Eric Gordon who finished with 24. Chris Paul had four points, eight
