The Knicks played fast in the preseason, ranking in the top 10 in pace. But they've slowed down considerably since. New York enters play tonight ranked 25th in pace. Derek Fisher wants that to change. "It's something we have to figure out how to get back to as the season goes on."

The first quarter is over in Brooklyn: Pistons 22 Nets 18. FGs: Detroit 9-for-28 Brooklyn 7-for-21.

Sixers down eight after one

Philadelphia has lost 27 straight games dating to last season, and unless the Sixers can find a way to shoot better, they'll likely extend that streak. They were just 5-for-22 in the first quarter and trail the Grizzlies 21-13. Follow live

Raptors way off the mark

Toronto shot just 19 percent from the field in the first quarter (4-for-21), but trails Phoenix by just 3 points. No player on either team scored more than 6 points in the first quarter. Follow live

Boston Celtics @celtics

It's 21-20, Magic over the Celtics, after one quarter. Six C's have scored, led by six points from Isaiah Thomas.

Rough start for 76ers

Philadelphia missed its first eight shots from the field tonight vs. the Grizzlies. The 76ers are trying to avoid matching the worst start in NBA history, and trail by 3 midway through the first quarter. Follow live

Jordan draws nothing but air, twice

Why do teams intentionally foul DeAndre Jordan? This trip to the line gives the answer perfectly.

76ers still looking for first win

Dwight Howard will face Kristaps Porzingis for the first time tonight. Hes been impressed with the rookie thus far. For him to be 7-2, 7-3, hes skilled tremendously & and I like where his head is at, Howard said. I really never heard of the kid before the draft & I watched the draft & the fans were booing & I felt bad for him. But it seems now hes won New Yorks heart with the way hes played.

LA Clippers @LAClippers

End of the third quarter at STAPLES Center: Clippers 71 T-Wolves 61. LAC holding MIN to 39.7% shooting.

LA Clippers @LAClippers

Redick with 8 points here in the third quarter. He has a team-high 15. 🔥🔥🔥 Clippers lead 69-57.

Okafor apologizes for off-court issues

76ers center Jahlil Okafor released a statement in multiple tweets saying in part: "I hold myself to a higher standard than anyone else ever could and I'm not proud of some of my decisions over the last few months. I own my choices both personally and now publicly. At this point I am cooperating and respecting the process I have to go through." Story
