By on Oct 28, 2010 in Basketball, Sports Comments

The opening night of the National Basketball Association (NBA) 2010-11 Regular Season was filled with drama and excitement. The new NBA season opener has given a preview on what to expect throughout the rest of the NBA 2010-11 season.

The debut of Miami Heat‘s Big Three suffered a big thud as the Boston Celtics‘ own Big Three clamped down on defense to upset the Heat, 88-80. LeBron James had a big game but Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were nowhere to be found in the offensive end of the game. Wade struggled throughout the game and shot 4 of 16. Bosh had a miserable 3 of 11 field goal shooting. James big scoring night also got a black eye when he committed eight turnovers.

Boston‘s own Big Three, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen scored half of the teams total production for the game. The trio got big offensive and defensive help from old reliable Rajon Rondo who issued 17 assists and from new acquisition, Shaquille O’Neal. The Diesel scored 9 points and his big presence inside the paint distracts Miami‘s inside game.

In Portland, the Trailblazers pulled away in the last three minutes to beat the Phoenix Suns, 106-92. The final score did not reflect how close the game has been for almost 90% of the game. The Blazers closed out the game on an 18-1 run for their first victory of the regular season.

Defending champion Los Angeles Lakers savor their championship rings before the game against the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are in for a big upset over the Lakers as they led LA by as many as 15, but Shannon Brown‘s key three pointers in the fourth quarter and poor shooting by the Rockets late in the game, changed the complexion of the Lakers-Rockets game. However, it took a last-second key defensive stop by the Lakers to escape the Rockets, 112-110.

Pau Gasol’s led the LA Lakers’ campaign with 29 points and 11 rebounds. Kobe Bryant added 27 points and seven assists. Houston was led by Kevin Martin‘s 26 points and Aaron Brooks added 24 points and nine assists.
