DeAndre Ayton was the 1st overall choice this summer, but also the pedigree can not protect you from a nasty crossover. Early in the first quarter, Pacers & Darren Collison used a quick move to send Aytonto the floor.
Nuggets are back on track. After a hard stretch, where they lost six out of seven games, the Denver team has won four in a row. The latest came on Tuesday night, because they broke the Lakers with 32 points. Paul Millsap and Jamal Murray went for 20 points each time, while Malik Beasley left 20 of himself on the bench.
The Raptors were on the verge to end the Grizzlies gym, but Kawhi Leonard and Co. took over in the second half to show why they have the best record in the league. Leonard finished 17 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, Kyle Lowry scored 24 points and the raptors beat an impressive 18 3 pointer on the way to a big comeback winner.
Blake Griffin continued its strong start to the season with another high-performing game that poured 30 points to lead the knicks over Knicks. This was Griffin’s sixth game with at least 30 points already this season.
Pacers-Suns game began with Darren Collison who put Deandre Ayton on deck, but it was not settled until the last minute. In the end. Coupling 3 pointers from Myles Turner and Bojan Bogdanovic proved to be the difference.
Usually it’s Lonzo Ball that makes fancy feeds, but this time he was on the receiving end of one from Kyle Kuzma. The second year forward jumped up to take an offensive return, but instead just hit the ball back to a wide open Lonzo, who hit it at home.
Dwyane Wade has sat on a show in his last season, and it continued toward Hawks. Check out this ridiculous shot as he turned in from the glass.
Juancho Hernangomez got the Nuggets-Lakers game to an exciting start. Just minutes into the game, he took a hand-off from Nikola Jokic, drove down the lane and hugged a powerful slurry on JaVale McGee.
Jeremy Lin got himself the highlight of the heat with a dirty little pass in the lane. Cutting through the color he took a pass from Alex Len, and when the defense collapsed on him, he turned back to Len over his head.
Tim Hardaway Jr. closed the first half in style against the pistons and hit a fadeaway jumper along the baseline to beat the swimmer. And to make it even cooler, he did it in front of his father, Tim Hardaway.
The highlight of Tuesday night is the last game of the night, where LeBron James will lead the Lakers against Nikola Jokic and Nuggets. Lakers have won seven of their nine last games – strange both losses to Magic – to turn things, while Nuggets has won three games in a row to also enter this competition that feels good about themselves.
