Cunningham misses Pistons opener
Detroit Pistons guard and former Oklahoma State star Cade Cunningham was ruled out of the NBA team's seasonopening game against the Chicago Bulls due to a sprained right ankle. Detroit hosted the Bulls on Wednesday night without Cunningham, the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft. Cunningham hurt his ankle early in training camp and did not play in the preseason. Detroit is counting on the 6-foot-8 guard to help restore success.
The Pistons have earned a spot in the playoffs just twice since 2009, when they ended an eight-year playoff run that included their third NBA championship, two Eastern Conference titles and six trips to the conference finals.
WARRIORS 121, LAKERS 114: Stephen Curry had 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Golden State Warriors, who rallied from 10 points down to stun LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the new-look Los Angeles Lakers in a season opener Tuesday night.
BUCKS 127, NETS 104: Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points and Milwaukee opened the defense of its first title in half a century by beating Brooklyn on Tuesday. Kevin Durant led the Nets with 32 points and 11 rebounds.
