Huge win for Celtics over Milwaukee(116-105) and boost for their chemistry. Kemba needed to adjust to fit in to already formed team and he is doing it. Boston’s starting five outscored Milwaukee’s by 40 points. Kemba(32p,6r,6s) and Tatum(25p) led Boston for 3w:1d. Middleton(26 points) and Giannis(22 points and 14 rebounds) were bright spot of Milwaukee Bucks. Brogdon is for sure missing a lot. Bucks are struggling this season a lot, 2w and 2d.
Clash of two teams in the east, each team is missing their first star, Victor Oladipo and Kevin Durant. Brooklyn Nets lost from Indiana Pacers(108-118). One all around game from Irving(28p,7r abd 6a) and good game from the bench for Dinwiddie(20p and 7a). First win, finally for Pacers, terrific game for Brogdon(21p,8r and 13a). Also Sabonis(29p), Lamb(25p) and Warren(20p) played well. Victor js going to be huge reinforcement for this team.
Utah Jazz have beaten LAC for their fourth victory this season(110-96). Leonard didn’t play because of load management and already weakened for PG, they weren’t favorites to win. Williamsa and Green tried their best but it wasn’t enough. Mike Conley had a game worthy of mentioning, 29 points(65% fg), his team mate, Mitchell scored 24 points.
Already bad start for Golden State Warriors couldn’t be worse until last night when their main star didn’t break his hand. Stephen Curry broke his left hand after drive to the rim, two Suns players have fallen on him and that was it. He left the court immediately. GSW lost against Phoenix Suns(110-121). Last year’s injury of Klay Thompson and this year’s injury of Curry is going to be fatal for the team. PO for them ia a dream now. Paschall had 20 points and Robinson III had 17 points. Phoenix are playing beautiful, great ball movement, Devin Booker is playing his true position, SG. Really needed playmaker last season and they signed Ricky Rubio who took playmaking in his own hands. He took huge burden from young Booker. Booker(31p) and Baynes(24p,13r,7a) led their team to victory although GSW is playing without their main players.

Philadelhpia 76ers won against T-Wolves by 22(117-95), but basketball wasn’t main happening in Wells Fargo Center, as there was a huge fight.
