Langston Galloway, a Baton Rouge, Louisiana native, said on a conference call with local media today that his family was thrilled when they learned he'd be playing closer to home.

DeRozan just had a nice dipsy-do reverse layup....but Kyrie Irving's reenactment of it on the sideline was even better.

Kevin Durant has 3 assists in his first 4 minutes of action. Looks like he's fitting into Golden State's offense before he even gets there.
