NBA Scores: Luka Doncic and Steph Curry took centerstage on Tuesday

Three of Tuesday night’s losing teams are presumptive NBA playoff contenders who are now starting behind the eight. Brooklyn, LA Clippers and Miami are all under .500 at the start of the season. Yes, it has only been 10 days, but when the Eight speaks, we should listen:

We also get the odd coincidence that the three teams that lost in regulation all scored exactly 110 points. Not the best night in the entire association for defense.

Mavericks are taking overtime to break away from KD and Kyrie, 129-125

There was plenty of panache in that game between a Kyrie Irving vs. Christian Wood stretch in the second quarter, David Duke Jr. making good use of a few minutes on the bench, and Royce O’Neale, who had some bigger than Royce-O’Neale along with moments and some Luke magic:

Hard-fought for most of the game, Dallas took a double-digit lead early in game four and that was enough to hold them into overtime as well. Luka finished the season with 41 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists and 3 steals to put the Mavs 2-2.

Nets, meanwhile, fall to a dismal 1-4 (only four-point home win over Toronto) and struggled to generate plenty of support for Kevin Durant and Irving. The two combined on the night for 76 points (including Brooklyn’s last 30 of 32 over nearly 14 minutes), 9 assists, 5 steals and 5 blocks.

OKC beats Clippers 118-110 for the second straight season

OKC comes out on top on Tuesday and they do it again on Thursday. John Wall had 12 points off the bench in 11 minutes of the first half, helping LA to a 60-53 halftime lead. However, Thunder had other ideas for the second half and won that 24 minute game 65-50.

Clippers fall to 2-3 after a 2-0 start, which looks pretty iffy considering the wins topped their crosstown rivals Lakers and in-state opponents Kings by 8 points combined.

Conversely, the Tanking Thunder are also 2-3 but have a slightly different feel to the clips. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was impressive again, recording 24 points, 6 assists and 3 steals in 34 minutes.

Warriors pull away from Heat late in 3-point shootout, 123-110

These two shot 32-89 from deep combined in that game, and it won’t come as a surprise to know that the team that shot just that little bit better – Warriors (3-2) shot 39.1% and Heat (2 -4 ) scored 32.6% – just ahead. Steph Curry contributed 10 points over the 5:32 final to finish it with 33 points (11-22 FG); it is his fourth 30-point game in five attempts.

Grizzlies do business in Sacramento, 125-110

Ja Morant and Desmond Bane had 53 points and 10 assists combined, while five other Grizzlies were in double digits. Bane alone amassed 6 threes on 8 attempts including this clinic to close half:

De’Aaron Fox led the Kings by 27 points (11-19 FG) but is still trying to give Sacramento their first win of the season, now 0-4.

The Grizzlies are drawing 4-1 with two straight games in Salt Lake against the surprisingly impressive Utah Jazz on deck.
