The 2016-17 NBA season kicked off Tuesday night in glorious fashion.
Three games featuring some of the league’s elite teams took place. First LeBron James and the Cavaliers got their championship rings and then crushed the Knicks in Cleveland to begin their title defense. Then Damian Lillard went off for 39 as the Blazers beat the Jazz in Utah. And the nightcap featured Kevin Durant and the new-look Warriors getting getting blown out at home by Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs.
Here are the top 10 ZAGSBLOG / OVERTIME highlights from the NBA’s opening night.
