NBA returns with some thrilling plays on opening night.
The NBA is finally back and here are the top 10 plays from opening night as the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls, while there were wins for the Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers.
With their ring ceremony somehow making it at number 10, the Miami Heat feature after their commanding win over Eastern Conference rivals Chicago, while the Indiana Pacers also came through an initially tricky test against Orlando.
Paul George and Roy Hibbert played key roles in the win, with the former contributing at both ends of the court with some high quality scoring as well as a fair share of blocks and steals.
However, perhaps the surprise of the night came at the Staples Center where the Lakers were able to defeat their city rivals in a high-octane encounter.
Despite the absence of the injured Kobe Bryant and point guard Steve Nash being limited, the depth of Mike D’Antoni’s roster was tested and passed with flying colours in a 116-103 win.
