When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 29, 2016
Where: Time Warner Cable Arena, Charlotte, North Carolina

Boston Celtics Preview (1-1):

Boston was badly outworked by Chicago in its second contest, particularly with the Bulls collecting 18 offensive rebounds and scoring 18 second-chance points. Coach Brad Stevens was highly disappointed that his squad was outrebounded 67-44 and he may opt to give backup center Tyler Zeller (4.5 rebounds) more minutes against Charlotte. Shooting guard Avery Bradley leads the Celtics in rebounding (7.5) and Horford is next with an average of six per game.

Standout guard Kemba Walker scored 24 points to pace Charlotte on Friday and he was one of six players to score in double digits. Four of those players were bench players with backup shooting guard Jeremy Lamb playing the best with 16 points and eight rebounds in 22 minutes.

Orlando Magic Preview (0-2):

New Orlando coach Frank Vogel is trying to revamp the franchise and one of the issues is changing the bad habits he witnessed in the disappointing showing against Detroit. The Magic shot just 34.7 percent from the field against the Pistons and were outscored 60-36 in the paint.

Where: Madison Square Garden, New York, New York
TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, FSN Southeast (Memphis), MSG (New York)

Memphis Grizzlies Preview (1-0):

Memphis was missing two projected starters with Tony Allen (knee) and Chandler Parsons (knee) out for the opener but stayed committed to using 35-year-old power forward Zach Randolph off the bench. Randolph responded with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes but was left out of the action during crunch time, when Fizdale went with JaMychal Green in the frontcourt. Green, who came up with a key defensive play on a block down the stretch, recorded 12 points and seven rebounds and buried both of his 3-point attempts in the opener.

New York Knicks Preview (0-1):

The triangle offense and how much it will be employed by Hornacek and how comfortable Rose will be running it has been a constant topic of conversation over the summer, but Hornacek and Rose downplayed the idea that the triangle was holding the team back. Noah and Lee both started and both went scoreless in their debuts while Jennings went 1-of-7 from the field off the bench.
Team record: 0-1 SU,0-1 ATS
New York is 1-5 SU in its last 6 games

Where: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado
TV: 9 p.m. ET, CSN Northwest (Portland), Altitude (Denver)

Portland Trail Blazers Preview (1-1):

Portland had its intensity in midseason form against the Clippers and scuffled a few times with the team it dispatched in the first round of the playoffs last spring. Center Mason Plumlee was in the middle of most of the pushing and shoving but still put up 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting.
Team record: 1-1 SU,1-1 ATS
Portland is 2-5 SU in its last 7 games
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Portland’s last 5 games
Portland is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games on the road

Denver Nuggets Preview (1-0):

Malone decided before the season that he would start Jusuf Nurkic and Nikola Jokic in the frontcourt and bring Kenneth Faried off the bench, and the logic of that decision was apparent in the opener. Nurkic delivered 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting and nine rebounds in 26 minutes while Jokic added seven boards and Faried provided energy off the bench with 14 boards in 28 minutes. “We don’t win the game without Kenneth Faried’s energy up-and-down the floor,” Malone told reporters. “I thought he was fantastic in that fourth quarter.”
Team record: 1-0 SU,1-0 ATS
Denver is 2-5 SU in its last 7 games
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Denver’s last 6 games
