The National Basketball League has their first games tonight with six teams facing off in three different matches. The first game of the night is between the reigning champions of the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lebron James and the Cavs took on the New York Knicks and Carmelo Anthony. Cleveland crushed New York with a 117-88 victory to start the season.
The opening night of the season is a fresh start and any team has a chance at the moment with endless possibilities as to who will make it to the playoffs. Two teams that have a strong chance to make it to the playoffs and the finals are the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors who face off in a later game tonight.
The Warriors have something to prove after losing the championship series last year. One last game that starts off the NBA season is between the Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers. Portland made it to the playoffs last year and could have a strong chance to do it again this year. Excited to have some basketball back even if it is in the middle of a ton of other exciting sports events.
The spurs went on to win against the Warriors 129-100. Portland beat Utah 113-104. On the second night of basketball but first game for other teams we have: MIAvsORL, DALvsIND, BKNvsBOS, DETvsTOR. I'm excited to be tuning into the Hawks later as they take on the Wizards. I'll also be following the Grizzlies who play the Timberwolves first. Along with these two teams, I'll be studying better teams that made the playoffs last year. I'll be watching Oklahoma City taking on Philadelphia and later Houston playing Los Angeles.
