Jazz (5-3) 109, Sixers (0-6) 84

Gordon Hayward (20p/7r/5a) continued his strong comeback as the Jazz moved to 2-0 since he returned from injury. Derrick Favors (16p/14r) also had a big night on the glass.

Jahlil Okafor (15p/4r) led the Sixers in scoring as they continued their winless start. It's now the third straight season they've gone 0-6. Joel Embiid (14p/9r) played 19 minutes.

Rockets (4-3) 114, Wizards (1-5) 106

James Harden (32p/6r/15a) continues to excel in his role as point guard under Mike D'Antoni, picking up his fourth double-double of the season. Ryan Anderson (23p - 5-8 3pt) also had a big scoring night.

Nobody expected the Wizards to be this poor out of the blocks. It's their worst start to a season since 2012-13. John Wall (21p/5r/8a) and Bradley Beal (20p/2r/3a) had their usual scoring nights.

Pacers (3-4) 100, Hornets (5-1) 122

Kemba Walker (24p/2r/10a) posted his first double-double of the season as seven other Charlotte players reached double-figures in scoring. Spencer Hawes (13p/13r) was the pick of the bunch.

Al Jefferson (12p/9r) could not get the win over his former teammates as the Pacers continue their below-par start to the season. Paul George (10p/7r/6a) shot just 33% (4-12) from the field. CJ Miles (23p/4r) led the team in scoring.

Magic (3-4) 80, Bulls (4-3) 112

Jimmy Butler (20p/5r/7a/4s) was a perfect 10-10 from the free-throw line as the Bulls comfortably saw off the challenge of Orlando. Dwyane Wade (16p/3r/4a/2s/2b) and Taj Gibson (16p/11r/3a) also had big nights.

The Magic struggled from the field all night (38.8% Team FG%) and struggled to get to the free throw line (5-6 compared to Chicago's 25-31). Aaron Gordon (15p/4r/4a) led the team in points.

Heat (2-4) 85, Thunder (6-1) 97

Russell Westbrook (14p/5r/11a) notched his second double-double as the Thunder moved to 4-0 at home. Domantas Sabonis (15p/10r) and Enes Kanter (24p/10r) also had double-doubles.

Justise Winslow (6p/3r/2s) shot a miserly 15.4% (2-13) from the field. Dion Waiters (2p/1r/4a) was at 11.1% (1-9) on his return to the Chesapeake Energy Arena. James Johnson (18p/6r/1a) was the Heat's leading man.

Pistons (4-3) 82, Clippers (6-1) 114

Blake Griffin (13p/10r/9a) came within a whisker of his first triple-double of the season. Chris Paul (24p/6r/8a) and JJ Redick (20p/1r) combined for 44 points from the backcourt as L.A. cruised to their sixth win.

Andre Drummond (15p/12r) had his obligatory double-double, but the Pistons struggled as a team, shooting 36.6% (30-82) as a unit. Jon Leuer (14p/6r/2a) had an impact off the bench.


Pelicans (0-7) 106, Warriors (5-2) 116

Stephen Curry (46p/5r/5a) bounced back in style after his three-point streak was ended, breaking the single-game record for threes (13-17). Klay Thompson (24p/4r/1a) continued to struggle from range (2-7). Kevin Durant (22p/3r/5a) continued his streak of scoring more than 20 points.

Anthony Davis' (33p/13r/1a) best efforts were not enough, once again, as the Pelicans currently boast the worst record in the league. Curry's barrage of threes was just too much to handle.
