The Houston Rockets are coming off their first loss of the season as they head into Philadelphia to take on the 76ers. Philadelphia is coming off their first win of the season as Ben Simmons is on fire.
The Wizards are not a franchise known for red hot starts to the season. Heading into their first road test on Monday night in Denver, they were on the verge of starting the year 3-0 for just the fourth time in the team’s 57 seasons.
By the end of the night, they were looking forward to trying to become just the second team in the franchise’s history to get to 4-0.
Washington’s core continued to lead the way despite being without big men Jason Smith and Markieff Morris, as the Wizards’ three home-grown stars shined bright again Monday.
Bradley Beal led the way with 20 points, while John Wall (19 points, 12 assists) and Otto Porter (17 points, 10 rebounds) posted double-doubles to lead D.C. to a 109-104 victory over the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.
Porter got the hot hand first Monday with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting in a tightly contested first half that finished with the Wizards leading by one.
The first half proved to be a microcosm of the game as a whole, as Washington overcame being out-shot by the Nuggets (48.8 percent to 44 percent from the field) by capitalizing on a plethora of Denver turnovers.
By the time the night was over, the Wizards had scored a whopping 29 points off of 24 Nuggets miscues, a big factor in what was a neck-and-neck battle.
Washington’s backup point guards came to play against a Denver team with plenty of young guard depth. Tim Frazier scored 10 points (3-of-4 shooting) to go with three assists, while Tomas Satoransky scored a quick five points in his four minutes of action.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers are enjoying their new rookie Lonzo Ball, but they actually performed better with him on the bench. Don’t expect many people to say it. It may not happen often.
But in Sunday’s 119-112 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans it was certainly true.
The Lakers trailed by 21 points when the rookie Ball went to the bench in the third quarter on Sunday. He was once again approaching a triple-double, but collectively his team had been lousy.
In the 6 minutes and 32 seconds the prized rookie Ball sat on the bench, an unlikely group of Lakers led a wild comeback behind a barrage of 3s, steals and momentum plays that resulted in a 29-5 run and a 101-98 lead by the time Ball checked back in.
However when Lonzo check back in, Los Angeles was unable to get the ball going again. Maybe it was just wrong timing at the wrong place for Lonzo.
Ball finished with eight points, a career-high 13 assists and eight rebounds. However, he also committed five turnovers and the Lakers were minus-24 when Ball was on the court.
