Cavs' depth defining their early-season success

After running out of healthy bodies in the playoffs last season, the Cavs are showing a deep bench and winning while several key players are out.


All Lakers starters can't match Steph

The Los Angles starting lineup made 10 field goals in the 111-77 loss to the Warriors ... or exactly the same number that Stephen Curry made in that game.


Lakers defense make it easy for Curry

Stephen Curry has many dazzling moves, but he didn't need any here -- the Lakers left a clear path to the basket for him.


Clarkson goes flying trying to stop Curry

Stephen Curry used a pick and this really slick behind-the-back dribble to send Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson flying.


Warriors set NBA record to open season

Golden State is now 16-0, which is the best start of the NBA season ever, after an easy 111-77 win over the Lakers. Box score


Warriors keeping it 100 at home

Golden State has now scored at least 100 points in 43 straight home games, the longest streak since the 1990-91 Nuggets (47 straight). The Warriors lead the Lakers 106-70 in the fourth quarter. Follow live

Kobe is 1-14. If he doesnt re-enter the game, this will tie for his worst shooting game with a made field goal. Was also 1-14 on 11/14/14.

Balanced scoring puts Clips over Nuggets

Six Clippers players scored in double figures and Los Angeles cruised to a 111-94 win over Denver.

The Mavs pride themselves on protecting the ball, committing the fourth fewest turnovers in the NBA, which makes the 36 turnovers committed during their two-game losing streak even more frustrating. "Were beating ourselves," guard Raymond Felton said. "As a team collectively, were going to figure it out just like we did before and start another win streak."

Dirk Nowitzki on the message the Mavs received from starting this road trip with two losses: "Weve got to get better. We knew that during the six-game win streak. Weve got to keep working. Weve got to get better defensively, work together, end the possession with rebounding and then we can get our flow game working. We gave up [117] in OKC and 110 to a slow-paced team. Its just not good enough."

Crawford nails half-court shot to end 3rd

The Nuggets gave Jamal Crawford time to set his feet and this long-range score was probably enough to get any Clippers fans in Denver out of their seat.


Griffin gets off ground, nails 3 before landing

The Clippers went all jump-passes on this play, but Blake Griffin nails the 3 while still in mid-air.


Warriors 54, Lakers 38 at halftime

Stephen Curry has has 10 points with 5 assists and Draymond Green has 14 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks. Kobe Bryant is 1-for-9 shooting and 1-for-5 from 3. The Warriors are looking for their record-setting 16th straight win to open the season. Follow live

Half: GSW 54, LAL 38. Kobe: 1-9 overall, 1-5 from 3, 4 points. Lakers are being outscored 24-3 from beyond the arc.

Here's Amar'e Stoudemire on why his partnership with Carmelo Anthony didn't work out well: "I dont think that pick & roll offense between me & Melo was taken advantage of, which it could have. From him, the way he shoots the ball & handles the ball from the outside & the way I attack the rim it could have been a pretty good combination. I dont think the coaching staff at the time really bought into that."
