Will and Chad's NBA Daily (Friday, October 20)

On off (from the show) days Will Avery and I will pick the prior night’s top 3 individual performances and pick that night’s key games.

See Thursday's "daily" here: http://www.augbball.com/2017/10/will-and-chads-nba-daily-thursday.html

See Wednesday's "daily" here: http://www.augbball.com/2017/10/nba-opening-night-special-augbball-talk.html



Last night's (Thursday) top 3 performers (Chad):

Thunder 105, Knicks 84

1) OKC's "big 3:"

Russell Westbrook: 21 points, 16 assists, 10 rebounds
Paul George: 28 points
Carmelo Anthony: 22 points




I chose all 3 players because I think they confirmed in their first outing that they are more than capable of integrating their immense talent into a unit that will be disadvantaged against ZERO NBA teams, including mighty Golden State. This team will be an intimidating defensive squad, as Kenny Smith described at halftime of the game:



2) Kristaps Porzingis: 31 points, 12 rebounds


Porzingis vs his former teammate Anthony was a fun matchup in the first half while the Knicks were still within striking distance. Porzingis scored 19 points in the first 24 minutes.

Clippers 108, Lakers 92


3) Blake Griffin: 29 points, 12 rebounds



Last night's (Thursday) top 3 performers (Will):

Blake Griffin 29pts, 12rebs. 12-23 FG 3-6 3pt
Russell Westbrook 21pts, 10rebs, 16assts. 7-12 FG

Raptors 117, Bulls 100
Jonas Valanciunas 23pts, 15rebs. 9-17 FG
