Blazers PG Damian Lillard still struggling defensively
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) Concerns about the defense of standout Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard returned quickly in 2014 after explosive Thunder counterpart Russell Westbrook torched him (and others guarding him) for 38 points Wednesday night.

Westbrook posted up Lillard, duped him on a backdoor for a layup and shot over him, according to The Oregonian. Lillard seemed affected offensively as he went scoreless in the first half. And though his teammates also had little success slowing down Westbrook, his problems defensively remain.

Blazers center LaMarcus Aldridge, however, believes it has nothing to do with a lack of effort or willingness to improve on that end of the court.

"He's worked on it all preseason," Aldridge said. "He has showed people that he is definitely trying to be better defensively, and he's given better effort. I think everybody is seeing that the effort is there. It's just different when you go from being a scorer to learning how to do both. It just gakes time. ... He wants to do well on both ends."


Knicks SG J.R. Smith: 'We stopped competing' Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:21 am ET) The NBA season opener is certainly a bit early to lose that competitive edge, but Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith claimed that's exactly what happened to his team Wednesday night against Chicago. The result was a 104-80 trouncing.

"When we stopped competing at the end of the third, fourth quarter, we could all tell," he told the New York Post. "[The Bulls] felt as though they smelled blood in the water. We just couldn't do anything about it. ... We put our heads down and tucked our tails, and we can't do that at home."

The Knicks trailed by 10 at halftime, but their deficit swelled to 35 in the fourth quarter as the fans booed. Smith, who scored just six points on 2-of-8 shooting in 22 minutes, added that the team is struggling to grasp the new triangle offense.

"I don't think we can be just thinking, thinking, thinking," he said. "Right now it's time to react. If somebody just kicks your mom's door and takes what they want, I think you have to react, you can't sit there thinking what should I do next."

Things don't get any easier for the Knicks, who travel to Cleveland for a Thursday night game in which LeBron James makes his regular season return to the Cavaliers.


Pistons' Brandon Jennings sits in fourth quarter of opening loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:37 am ET) Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings did not play in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's 89-79 loss to the Nuggets in the team's regular-season opener.

"A little surprising," Jennings said after the game about sitting during the fourth quarter. "It never happened before in my career. It is what it is. I just have to push through it. I thought D.J. [Augustin] did a good job."

"You go with the guys you think give you the best chance to win," said coach Stan Van Gundy about sticking with Augustin.

Jennings ended up playing 20 minutes in the loss while scoring just four points on 2 of 4 shooting. He added four rebounds and two assists while turning the ball over three times. The Pistons will look to bounce back against the Timberwolves Thursday.


Nuggets SF Danilo Gallinari endures poor shooting night
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:33 am ET) Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari scored seven points on just 1 of 8 shooting while playing 18 minutes in his team's 89-79 win over the Pistons in Wednesday's regular-season opener.

"Physically, I feel good. There is no pain. I'm not scared. I'm ready to go," Gallinari said after the game, which was his first since suffering an ACL injury in April 2013. "I was a little rusty, but we all knew it. First game, you want to get the `W,' and go on to the next one."

Gallinari made just one of his five three-point attempts as well as all four free throws. He also chipped in three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in the win. The Nuggets move on to face the Thunder Saturday.


Nuggets F Kenneth Faried drops 22-17 line in opening win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:29 am ET) Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried came up big Wednesday, scoring a team-high 22 points on 8 of 12 shooting and grabbing 17 rebounds in his team's 89-79 win over the Pistons in Wednesday's regular-season opener.

"He was huge for us right from the beginning of the game," coach Brian Shaw said after the game. "Aggressive, getting good position down low. Got their bigs in foul trouble. Once again it's a carryover from the way he played at the end of last season to the summer with the U.S. team, throughout training camp."

Faried played just 27 minutes while delivering his big line, adding four assists and turning the ball over three times. His 17 rebounds is a level matched just twice last season, with both big rebounding totals coming during his last four games of the regular season. The Nuggets' next test come Saturday against the Thunder.


Wizards G Glen Rice Jr. misses season opener Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:15 am ET) Wizards guard Glen Rice Jr. was active for Wednesday's regular-season opener but did not play in his team's 107-95 loss to the Heat.

Rice has been dealing with an ankle issue and was a gametime decision for Wednesday's game. His next chance to take the court will come Thursday against the Magic.


Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge scores team-high 27 in win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:12 am ET) Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge scored a team-high 27 points on 10 of 19 shooting in his team's 106-89 win over the Thunder in Wednesday's regular-season opener.

Aldridge brought his scoring touch in the win but managed just three rebounds in 34 minutes, matching his lowest rebounding output in a game from last season. He also kicked in two assists, two blocks and one steal. The Blazers are set to face the Kings Friday.


Thunder PG Russell Westbrook scores 38 in opening loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:08 am ET) Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook scored a team-high 38 points on 11 of 26 shooting from the field and 15 of 16 shooting from the free-throw line in his team's 106-89 loss in Wednesday's regular-season opener.

With Kevin Durant on the sidelines, the offense predictably flowed through Westbrook, who made a full third of the team's field goals in the game. He recorded six assists, three rebounds and three steals while only turning the ball over twice in 33 minutes. The Thunder will look to bounce back Thursday in Los Angeles against the Clippers.


Kings C DeMarcus Cousins doubles up in opening loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:03 am ET) Kings center DeMarcus Cousins scored a team-high 20 points on 4 of 14 shooting from the field and 12 of 18 shooting from the free-throw line while grabbing 11 rebounds in his team's 95-77 loss to the Warriors in Wednesday's regular-season opener.

Cousins is no stranger to double-doubles, having averaged 22.7 points and 11.7 rebounds per game last season, but he sunk nearly 50 percent of his shots during his breakout campaign last year and had trouble finding the basket from the field Wednesday. He'll look for a better night Friday against the Blazers.


Warriors F Draymond Green notches double-double in opener
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:56 am ET) Warriors forward Draymond Green scored 12 points on 4 of 7 shooting while grabbing 10 rebounds in his team's 95-77 win over the Kings in Wednesday's regular-season opener.

Green played 34 minutes in the win and managed to turn the ball over five times while also recording three assists and a steal. He had just four double-doubles during the 2013-14 regular season but did record three more during his team's seven-game loss to the Clippers in the postseason. The Warriors will take on the Lakers Saturday.
