Post Up: Still Perfect

by October 30, 2016

Clippers 88 (2-0), Jazz 75 (1-2)

The Clips took care of business in their home opener, thanks in large part to 19 points on 8/11 shooting from Austin Rivers . CP3 also dished out 9 assists, while DeAndre grabbed 16 big boards. George Hill dropped 18 to lead the Jazz.

Pistons 98 (2-1), Bucks 83 (1-2)

Drummond just makes it look easy sometimes. The big man led the way in this one with 20 points, 23 rebounds, 3 blocks, and one ridiculous breakaway slam:

The Greek Freak continued to do his thing as well, posting 17 points, 8 assists, 8 rebounds, and 3 blocks.

Spurs 106 (4-0), Heat 99 (1-2)

Yes, Kawhi Leonard is the real deal. The rising superstar scored 16 of his 27 points in the 4th quarter, as his Spurs remained undefeated against the Heat. Hassan Whiteside had 27 points and 15 rebounds in the losing effort.

Warriors 106 (2-1), Suns 100 (0-3)

It was the KD show tonight in Phoenix. The lethal scorer dropped 37 points on 10/16 from the field, including a monster dunk and a shoeless runner off the glass. TJ Warren scored 26 for the Suns.

Thunder 113 (3-0), Lakers 96 (1-2)

Just another day at the office for Russell Westbrook. The dynamic point guard recorded his 39th career triple double (33 points, 16 assists, and 12 rebounds), as his Thunder cruised to a victory at home. The young guns, Julius Randle and D’Angelo Russell, each had 20 points for Los Angeles.

Rockets 93 (2-1), Mavericks 92 (0-3)

With the game tied at 92, Harden did what he does best: drew a foul. The Beard knocked down 1 of 2 (28 total points) and his Rockets escaped with a narrow victory. Dallas has lost a few close ones to open up the season.

Grizzlies 112 (2-1), Wizards 103 (0-2)

Maybe this is why Coach Fizdale wants Marc Gasol to shoot threes. The center splashed a huge one with less than 20 seconds left to tie the game at 100. In overtime, Memphis completely took control, handing Washington their second loss of the season. Gasol, Conley, and Randolph each scored 20+.
