The Celtics vs Cavs was a great game to start the season. After being down big early the Celtics rallied back but came up short at the end. A few quick thoughts:
Prayers to Gordon Hayward for a speedy and full recovery.
LeBron James is STILL a force of nature. Can we please check this dude’s DNA for mutant characteristics.
Jaylen Brown and rookie Jayson Tatum together can help Boston overcome the loss of Gordon Hayward. I don’t think they can unseat the Cavs without Gordon but all is not lost.
They made it work last night mainly with Love at the 5 but the Cavs have crappy spacing with D-Wade and D-Rose on the floor at the same time.
Not to be outdone the Rockets and Warriors treated the fans at Oracle to another thriller. A few quick thoughts.
Eric Gordon was a man on a mission last night. He was aggressive all night and attacked poor Jordan Bell on every switch.
Nick Young shined in his Warriors debut going 8/9 from the field for 23 points.
The Warriors looked great to start the game but their 17 turnovers 8 by Kevin Durant cost them a win on opening night.
Who replaces Draymond Green if he has to be out awhile? Their lineup of Death isn’t the same without Draymond anchoring the defense.
