AP sports I'm David Shuster we begin in the NBA where Jayson Tatum scored a game high 34 points as Boston defeated Denver one 31 one 12 His night and day the way that we're playing the start of this season compared to the start of last season But whenever we made that change I just feel like we haven't looked back and for the most part we got the same group One or two new guys but they really know how to play the game In New York RJ Barrett scored 30 points for Tom thibodeau as the Knicks down Detroit one 21 one 12 The thing that was different about this game is we still didn't shoot the ball great But I thought we made a lot of plays on selfish place to help get high quality shots Elsewhere Oklahoma City had 8 players in double figure scoring running past Toronto by 19 Memphis had three players over 20 points beating Minnesota one 14 one O three and Golden State got 40 points from Steph Curry one O 6 one O one over Cleveland turning to hockey Washington defeated Tampa Bay as Craig heist reports Darcy Kemper made 28 saves and helped kill off a 5 minute power play in the second period as the capitals beat the lightning 5 to one Sonny Milano had two goals and an assist Anthony mantha Alexi protest and Connor sherry each lit the lamp Kemper missed out on the shutout when Nick permits scored in the third More importantly I think just as a group we came together with the urgency that we really wanted this win and you could see it in our play right from the start and it was nice to see everyone get rewarded College hoops the top 5 teams in the country all in action with number two Gonzaga squeaking out a one point victory at Michigan state Meanwhile number one North Carolina three Houston Ford Kentucky and 5 Baylor all were comfortable winners baseball news the Houston Astros fired their GM James click after he turned down their one year contract to offer and football buffalo quarterback Josh Allen he's questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota with a sore elbow I'm David Shuster AP sports
