Ballin': Kyrie Irving Outplays Chris Paul, Cavs Beat the Clippers

New York 110, Philadelphia 88: The Knicks dominated the 76ers for the second night in a row and are now 3-0, winning those games by an average of 19 ppg. This time, they hit 13 three-pointers. It’s taking me a little time to warm up to this Knicks team. Yes, I’m still bitter about how they traded Jeremy Lin. I loathe Jason Kidd and I’m still salty about Melo’s July antics. I’ll get over it, eventually. I’m looking forward to Iman Shumpert’s return. That’s one guy I like. Still no Bynum for Philly, and no ETA, either.

Brooklyn 96, Minnesota 107: Somebody named Alexey Shved sparked a furious rally for the Love/Rubio-less Timberwolves, and Minnesota overcame a 22-point second half deficit to stun the Nets. Shved scored 10 points in the 4th quarter; the Nets scored 10 points in the 4th quarter.

Cleveland 108, LA Clippers 101: Rookie Dion Waiters had the best game of his young career, scoring 28 points (seven 3-pointers), and fellow rookie Tyler Zeller added 15 points and seven rebounds off the bench as the Cavs registered an impressive road win. How do you lose a home game when you shoot 52 percent? By turning it over 25 times, and permitting 18 offensive rebounds.

Miami 124, Phoenix 99: The Heat shot 57 percent from deep, making 15 three-pointers, and easily improved to 3-1. The terrible Suns have lost their last two games by a combined 46 points. I have no clue where the offense will come from. Beasley? He’s off to a slow start, shooting just 36 percent so far.

Sacramento 94, Golden State 92: The Kings will not go winless this season. DeMarcus Cousins scored 23 points and collected 15 rebounds. Jimmer Fredette played two minutes and scored five points.
