NBA results: Russell Westbrook and Los Angeles Lakers get first win of the season

While watching my beloved Josh Allen cut the Green Bay Packers Sunday night — I’m so sure this is going to happen that I’m writing this at 6:27 PM ET — there was a ton of great NBA action in development. So much so, that I don’t want to waste time trying to come up with a witty introduction.

Let’s start with a brief recap of Saturday’s action:

See you on Sunday

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Clippers

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Zion returns, leads Pelicans over Clippers, 112-91

After missing the previous two games this week with a hip injury, Zion Williamson is back with a vengeance and helped his pelicans overthrow the Los Angeles Clippers for 21. He scored 21 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and dished out seven assists. The Clips, meanwhile, have lost four in a row. Concern is growing, and understandably so.

Celtics go wire to wire Wizards win 112-94

Malcolm Brogdon was listed as questionable with a back injury yesterday Clearly, it wasn’t much of a problem, as he showed with 23 points in Boston’s big win. Jaylen Brown (24) and Jayson Tatum (23) showed themselves, as usual, and C is never chased. This two-game losing streak doesn’t seem to worry much.

Cavs-knicks

The Cavs, who traded for Donovan Mitchell (38 points, 12 assists) over the summer. Looks like it was a good idea.

Pistons beat Warriors, 128-114

An early trend is forming: Golden State will give the masses reason to worry with one or two bad losses in a row, then silence all the doubters with a convincing win a few days later. This falls into the above category. The Warriors have lost two in a row, both against lesser Eastern Conference opponents. We’ll worry until Tuesday, when they’ll do it right away Miami Heat. And then we’ll worry again, when the Warriors visit Orlando and get caught up in Paolo Banchero’s whirlwind of skill. like a clock

On the Pistons front: so young and so fun. Five players finished in double figures, led by Cade Cunningham (23-10-9). The future

The Spurs continue their hot start with a 107-98 win over the T-Wolves

Speaking of he futureeeee…

The Mavs beat the Magic, 114-105, behind 44 from Luka

It’s hard to pretend you have a chance when Luka Doncic is in the process of going nuclear, but congratulations on the Orlando Magic to keep things entertaining in this one. Six Orlando players finished in double figures, but it wasn’t enough to stop Luka and co.

Suns handle Rockets, 124-109

Kevin Porter Jr. (26 points, eight rebounds, six assists) is the Rockets’ best player? Looks like we should talk about it.

Westbrook shines on the bench like lakers Nuggets down, 121-110, for first win

At last, they did. The Lakers finally won one game, ended a five-game losing streak to open the season, and while it wasn’t pretty, it helps that it’s against a formidable opponent like the Nuggets, who have some concerns to figure out in the middle of a cold start

Each member of the Lakers’ big three had their best game of the season in this one, but it’s the efforts of one Russell Westbrook that stand out above the pack. He finished with an efficient 18 points and added eight rebounds and eight assists for good measure. He led the team in +/- with 18 off the bench.

It’s time to see if this kind of harmonious play can last.
