Joakim Noah says the Knicks "have to get better in every aspect of our defense. One-on-one coverage, talking, just game plan, everything." They allowed Cleveland to hit 48% of its shots and struggled particularly in the 3rd quarter, when the Cavs reeled off a 19-4 run.

Is it just me? I love this time of year because we get football and nba but I feel like I'm not ready for nba yet. Locked into football.

Warriors are a mess out there right now. Back to back turnovers near the end of the 3rd, losing 97-77

Jazz-Blazers could easily be a first-round playoff series and if tonight is any indication it would be great fun.

Joe Johnson is huge for Utah. Going to be great to have another scorer when Hayward gets back. Nice to not have all 25yr olds getting mins.


1994 was the last time the Spurs and Warriors played one another in their season openers Spurs led by 15 at half Warriors came back to win

The Jazz exploded for 37 points on 15-of-20 shooting in the third -- as many as in any quarter in 2015-16 -- to take a six-point lead in Portland.
