    Vuelven los problemas ofensivos de los Cachorros

    Las penurias ofensivas de los Cachorros de Chicago esta postemporada parecían ya haber quedado en el pasado, pero volvieron a la carga en el peor de los momentos, en su primer partido de Serie Mundial en 71 años.

Anthony Davis update: 48 points (16/30 FG; 16/17 FT), 15 rebounds, 5 assists, 6 steals, 4 blocks in 38 minutes. Pels down 100-98 with 2:32 to play.

The Nets lost 122-117 to the Celtics in their season opener. They made 15 of a franchise-record 44 3-point attempts. Boston shot 53.9 percent from the field. Brooklyn trailed by 23 points in the fourth quarter but used an 18-2 run to come all the way back before Justin Hamilton missed a 3 that could've tied the game late. Brook Lopez struggled, going 1-for-7 from the field. Kenny Atkinson's team played hard, but it will be interesting to see how Lopez, a plodding center, fits into the fast-paced, 3-point heavy equation going forward.

Anthony Davis update: 40 points (13-for-26 FG; 14-for-15 FT), 10 rebounds, 6 steals, 4 assists and 3 blocks in 32 minutes. Pelicans down 85-77 after three quarters at the Big Blender.

Joel Embiid just took a spill after being fouled while in transition toward the basket by Semaj Christon. Sixers fans held their collective breath until Embiid got up and was OK. He made both free throws and has nine points, seven rebounds and one block in 14 minutes so far. Embiid will play 20 minutes in his debut.

For those who are asking (or just wondering): No, this is not the first time two World Series teams have worn solid-colored alternate jerseys in the same game — not even close, in fact. In Game 1 of the 1979 Series, the Pirates wore black and the Orioles wore orange. Ah, the '70s.

Kyle Schwarber is on base again as he walked in the sixth inning reaching for the third time tonight. He has three hits and two walks in his first two games since April 7.

Jake Arrieta retired Coco Crisp, Tyler Naquin and Roberto Perez in order to keep his no-hitter intact through the fifth inning. Arrieta has thrown 79 pitches through five. He joins the Mets' Noah Syndergaard as the second pitcher to take a no-hitter into the sixth inning this postseason.

Mets personnel believe Yoenis Cespedes will seek a five-year deal after opting out of his contract following the World Series. Cespedes is expected to vacate the two years and $47.5 million remaining on his current contract in order to test the free=agent market. The Mets are expected to still pursue Cespedes, but are pessimistic about their chances of landing him. Then again, they were pessimistic a year ago as well, and Cespedes returned.

Kyle Schwarber - 1-for-6 in the Arizona Fall League, 0-for-4 in the Cubs' regular season, 3-for-6 in the World Series. That's about right

Kyle Schwarber has his second RBI single of the night as he hit a ball hard up the middle with Ben Zobrist on third base and the infield playing halfway. He's now 3 for 6 in the WS with 2 RBIs.

Since we made a big deal of the Indians' 70-1 mark when they get a lead of three or more runs, it's only fair to note that the Cubs 79-4 mark in those spots was the third-best in baseball. (per ESPN Stats & Info)

Joel Embiid is out here looking flashing his massive potential. Even his missed shots draw oohs and ahhs from Sixers fans. Embiid pump-faked a 3, put the ball on floor, did a crossover before posting up, pumping and flashing the ball one-handed like Olajuwon used to all before missing a kid-range shot. Embiid showcased so many promising skills on just one missed shot.

Minnesota's early 17-point lead didn't last long in Memphis. It's tied with 4:49 to go in the half. The Grizzlies are plus-11 in sixth man Zach Randolph's 10 minutes.
