Curry starts cooking early, sets new NBA record in win

Steph Curry has been off to an incredible start this season, and he kept it up early in Brooklyn on Sunday. Knocking down his first three 3-pointers, Curry poured in 16 points in the first quarter alone. He finished the game with 35 points and seven 3s, and in doing so set a new NBA record. He’s now hit at least five 3s in seven straight games, becoming the first player to achieve that feat. 

DeAndre Jordan starts the game with a block on Gobert

The Dallas Mavericks big man let Rudy Gobert know that nothing would be coming easy for him on the offensive end by starting the game with a rejection on the Jazz big man. 

Russell Westbrook fires a pair of fullcourt assists

The Thunder are shorthanded this evening but Russell Westbrook is looking to lead his team to their first victory of the season by sharing the ball and he has done that in rather spectacular fashion to start the first half of tonight’s game and it led to a pair of finishes for Oklahoma City at the rim. 

Harrison Barnes gets his first bucket of the season

Dallas Mavericks forward Harrison Barnes made his regular season debut on Sunday night and he had to earn his first basket of the season as he went right at Jazz center Rudy Gobert and finished a tough layup off of the glass. 

Gobert destroys the rim on a lob from Mitchell

Rudy Gobert can do plenty of damage on the offensive end of the floor as well and he reminded the Dallas Mavericks of that during the second half of Sunday night’s showdown as he reached all the way back to throw down a lob pass from Donovan Mitchell.

Paul George beats the buzzer from halfcourt

The Thunder are still searching for their first win of the season and Paul George is doing eveything in his power to make sure that happens tonight as he ended the third quarter in style by knocking down a buzzer beater from beyond halfcourt. 

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander beats the buzzer from midcourt

Cavs fire Lue, may be without Love for extended period

The Cavaliers had a busy Sunday, and not in a good way. They fired head coach Ty Lue early in the morning, and not long after reports broke that Kevin Love may be out for a long period of time. Love is dealing with a foot injury and has missed the team’s past two games.
