HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — If Wednesday night is any indication, we’re going to get spoiled rotten this season.
We had a 13-game slate filled with intriguing matchups, NBA debuts and virtuoso performances.
The Cavaliers kicked off the post LeBron James era in style, knocking off the Celtics team that knocked off James and the Heat Tuesday night. The Heat bounced back, especially Dwyane Wade, with a win in Philadelphia. Meanwhile the Nuggets thumped the Jazz, so much for all the Carmelo Anthony drama being an issue, and the Trail Blazers moved to 2-0 with a win over the Clippers in Blake Griffin‘s first regular season action.
Chris Paul looked fantastic in his return to action, the Hawks’ new offense was nothing short of spectacular in their win over the Hang Time Grizzlies and the Amar’e Stoudemire era in New York is off to a winning start. The Thunder and Bulls gave us a playoff worthy matchup in their opener and the Spurs appear rested and re-energized after their playoff run ended abruptly last season.
And I sincerely hope you didn’t fall asleep before Warriors scoring machine Monta Ellis got loose … here’s the Daily Zap:
And we mentioned this was Griffin’s first regular season taste, well he didn’t disappoint.
He looked as explosive as ever from the start, rattling as many rims as he could to make up for missing last season. We have a feeling he’ll be a regular in the Top 10 this season, along with several other rookies (Wesley Johnson has lift) :
