Wizards-Bucks: The Wizards kicked the tempo up a notch against the Bucks last night, and it paid off. They ran to a 115-86 victory, with John Wall leading the way on 19 points and nine assists. He also had six rebounds. This was the first double-digit victory of the year for the Wizards.

Nets-Hawks: This game was pretty sloppy all-around, so no one’s too happy with themselves this morning. The Nets came out on top against Atlanta 90-88 in New York, with Thaddeus Young hitting the decisive free throws late.
Brook Lopez posted 24 points and 10 rebounds, while Young managed 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Al Horford would lead the Hawks with 18, but the Hawks shot themselves in the foot on turnovers, tying a season-high with 17.
Knicks-Hornets: Kristaps Porzingis is starting to look like a very smart draft pick for the Knicks. He logged a season-high 29 points with 11 rebounds against the Hornets last night, leading the team to a 102-94 victory.
Carmelo Anthony logged 18 points and 11 rebounds here, while Kemba Walker put up 31 points (a season-high) for the Hornets. Nicolas Batum had just one field goal and four points overall.
Warriors-Raptors: The Warriors are finding ways to win this year, even when they’re not blowing other teams off the court. The defending champs posted a 115-110 win over the Raptors in Oakland last night, with Stephen Curry leading the way on 37 points. Klay Thompson put up 19 points and Andrew Bogut managed 13.
The Warriors are 12-0, which is the best start by an NBA team since the Mavericks went 14-0 in 2002. The league record is 15-0.
