The Lakers unfortunately take another loss, this time against the Wolves. Jimmy Butler was cold blooded in crunch time leading the Wolves to victory.
Ingram was in top shape coming back, that's all that matters.

The Kings have won back to back games in Miami for the first time in their franchise history. That's right, they won in Miami in a game where they set the pace and it was up to Miami to keep up. Cauley-Stein and Whiteside had monster games for their respective teams. Whiteside has been playing at a high level this year so us who play DFS no longer will call him Woatside unless he reverts back to that guy in the future. This home loss for Miami is Wade's first and only time he will lose to Sacramento since this is his farewell tour.

It's hard to believe that the TWolves have to trade Butler to restore order in the franchise. But how can you when he comes through in the clutch and helps his team wins games? Can Wiggins do this? I dont remember seeing him do it. It sucked Kawhi got rested against the Bucks as it was a game of undefeated teams. The Bucks are now 7-0 for the season. And I'm disgusted at seeing the Warriors score 92 points in the first half. I wish there was defense again.

Someone please post on here so I can avoid double posting.

Derrick Rose. What a performance that was. He turned back the clocks (rewinding the clocks one hour on Sunday) and scored a career high 50 points. Against the Jazz at home. Without Jimmy "Trade Me" Butler and Jeff Teague. Amazing. Everyone loved it and he was very emotional for the night. And they won. That's what matters the most.

Can't believe the Nets beat the Pistons in OT. Can't believe the Nuggets barely beat the Bulls in OT. In fact, nearly all the games on Halloween night were close except for the Warriors/Pelicans and Spurs/Suns. I hated to see the Pelicans lose to the Warriors because I'm tired of seeing the Warriors score over 130 points.

An emotional night for Derrick Rose for sure! Who wouldíve thought he would have a 50 point game but hey he did. He led the Wolves past the tough Jazz who are known for their defense.

The Knicks had trouble closing out the Pacers, with Victor Oladipo going off in crunch time. A tough loss as the Knicks played well enough but just lost the game in the final minutes.

The Lakers almost had a meltdown as they were leading by double digits for the majority of the game against the Mavs. Somehow the Mavericks roared up and tied them in the dying seconds. Wes Matthews committed a dumb foul which led to LeBron making one free throw to win the game.

146 points. Road win in Atlanta. 6-3. That is the Kings record after winning in Atlanta after losing the last 11 times there. Fox became the 2nd youngest player to record a triple double and score 30 points. Again, he's looking like a much different PG this season. Maybe the increased tempo is the reason why. And Buddy Hield is looking like a stud SG all of a sudden with the uptempo offense too. Us Kings are not trying to over-react because the season is still young. But this is pretty neat to see.

The Celtics were the ones to snap the Pistons undefeated record. Now it was the Bucks record for them to snap and they got the job done. I didnt see the game but heard it was very entertaining. The Celtics are going to be very scary once Hayward is back to normal.

Thunder pulled out a win against the Hornets last night. which is good cause they were down for a part of it too. hopefully the Thunder can get a win streak going now to counter that losing streak that kicked off the season.

Yeps. I'm sure no one saw this coming at all. Everyone was predicting we would be one of the worst teams still because we didn't make any big moves or still have unproven young stars. But so far, Bjelica has been making a big difference. No need to over-react yet because I remember last year the Pistons and Magic were off to a fast start and fell off. But hopefully this team can keep it up and win close to 40 games.

Washington Wizards need to blow it up. Another blowout loss this time at home to the Thunder. Dwight Howard was one of the only lone bright spots for the Wizards scoring 20 points in 23 mins. Austin Rivers said in a post game interview that there could be more than defensive miscommunications but wont say more. Wonder if the team is tired of John Wall. The other team that looks to be shambles, the Rockets finally won a game again beating the Nets. Chris Paul was a beast out there. And it looks like the Magic are going to be the same crappy team, getting destroyed by the Clippers. I felt like the Warriors were toying with the TWolves all game until the 4th quarter where they finally turn on the switch button. A close game turned into a blowout.

Hopefully the Kings can keep it up, definitely wouldnít mind seeing some different flavor come playoff time.

Good to see the Knicks beat the Mavs in Dallas. We played very throughout the game, Mitchell Robinson has been a great big man for us and his a rookie. Allonzo Trier, another rookie, has been great as well. He led us in scoring last night with 23 points.

missed the Thunder/Wizards game cause of work. but seeing that final score do the Wizards even know defense? as shaky a start as the Thunder had it looks like the Wizards just rolled over for them.

Lakers FINALLY beat the Blazers! Ingram monster dunk!

Yes, I choose to attribute this to LeBron influence.

The Kings 3 game winning streak came to an end in Milwaukee as they had no answers for Giannis. He had a triple double as the rest of the team didn't need to do much. Nothing much to add about this game. This loss concludes the Kings road trip as they go back home to host Toronto on Wednesday.

Speaking of the Raptors, what a slaughter they had at Staples Center. Playing without hometown hero Kawhi Leonard, they made easy work leading 42-17 against the Lakers in the first quarter. The Lakers had no answer for Serge Ibaka who had a field day out there. Magic Johnson can be mad all he wants. But it is the front office who brought over these players. I can already tell the players dont fit well together. Minnesota took a 30 pts loss to the Blazers. Yikes. Hey look, the Wizards won a game! And they didn't give up 100 pts for once. For some odd reason, the Spurs can't seem to beat the Magic. I recall the Magic beating the Spurs twice in one season. Not sure if it was last season or the year before. But yeah, so weird.

Sucks we couldnít beat the Wizards but no surprise. We havenít beaten a ďgoodĒ team this season and the Wizards have a solid team despite their slow start.

Didnít think the Lakers would get smoked by the Raptors especially without Kawhi playing. Not sure why the Lakers didnít show up, they had a chance to be at .500 for the season.

We could tell that the moment they were signed. Grabbing a bunch of individuals doesn't automatically make them a team.

Hell, Lance Stephenson doesn't fit well with Lance Stephenson.

The first double OT game of the season and go figure the Knicks were involved. What a tough loss, losing by one to the Bulls in the Garden. Lavine popped off with 41 points and the game winning free throw. Allonzo Trier had 21 points and Kanter led the way with 23 points and 24 rebounds.

Welcome our latest Laker, journeyman Tyson Chandler!

https://www.latimes.com/sports/laker...106-story.html

It's been a long time getting him to play where he actually grew up, which will hopefully give him the spring in his step he desperately needs this late into his career. McGee may be getting tired playing so many minutes at center, but he's really beginning to gel with LeBron and Chandler's got a little catching up to do.

Thunder had a nice outing against the Cavs tonight. a win without Westbrook is still a win to be proud of. though the score was closer than it seemed it should be for a LeBron-less Cavs team.

Wow, what a game against the Timberwolves tonight. Derrick Rose made it rough, but the Lakers rose to the occasion and made it through, working like a team at last.

The Kings just don't have what it takes to beat teams with legit star players. The Raptors controlled the whole game against the Kings in Sacramento. The Kings tried to fight hard to chip the leads but the Raptors always had an answer to extend the lead again. It was a nice duel between Lowry and Fox though.

29-20-9. That was Whiteside's statline as he fell one block away from a triple double in a win over the Spurs. Not sure what made Whiteside so angry that he decided to go out there and beast. Unless it's because of all the recent 20-20 games other players are having. Drummond fell one rebound away from another 20-20 game in a win over the Magic. And lastly, looks like Tyson Chandler made a big difference in those final mins against the TWolves. He was out there playing volleyball to make sure his team were getting the offensive rebounds. Those who have Javale McGee in their fantasy teams, he for sure is going to take mins and production from McGee. McGee didnt record any steals and blocks for the night.

Good to see both the Knicks and Lakers win on the same night. Tim Hardaway came back from injury and had himself a very good game against the Hawks. Tyson Chandler played his first game as a Laker and made a huge difference in crunch time against the Timberwolves.
