It looked like typical elbow-shove-bear hug type stuff. Looks like Beal may have thrown the first elbow. The main offender was Kelly Oubre throwing punches, grazing Klay Thompson and accidentally hitting John Wall in the back of the head.

With friends like that, who needs enemies? Lol.

I expect Cleveland to get better when Thomas returns, in the meantime, they will be fine.

I expect the Warriors to get better when they realize playing unfocused will get you beat.

It's early. After about 20 games we will have a better read on every team.

It's early and we all know that the front-runners are going to coast per NBA history.

I agree, but there is usually a stand out team early that goes on a long run to start the season.

Carmello Anthony = Poison!

I think Boston will again finish #1 in East.
But this time they may be a threat to Cleveland in the playoffs.
Boston look like a very feisty tough team, suited to the playoffs, and extremely athletic and energetic.

And no matter how poorly the Cavs are playing they will pound the Wizards! Lolololol....

I'm a Wizards fan, but I'm about ready to give up on their potential. They may have already hit their ceiling. As much of a Wall fan as I am, he really struggles in critical contests, or "statement" games. He's not very strong down the stretch, either...

They had a messy Cavs team that's gotten pummeled by everybody, playing the worst defense in basketball, and completely blew a chance to strengthen their bid as a top tier team in The East. These guys think very highly of themselves (particularly Wall and Beal but really the whole team), for a squad that has never even made a conference finals. For two years they've been sending darts at Lebron and Cleveland, and though they play them competitively most games, the results are almost always losses. I don't get it with this team...

They are crippled by average coaching and a roster that just isn't good enough. They can't even secure a Top 3 seed even though on paper, they should be that in their conference. Too much talk, not enough walk...

Both Cleveland and Golden State are gonna face unprecedented challengers from within their conferences this year. I think this will be the toughest road back for both of them to The Finals, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them both upset in the postseason, but as of now, it's way too early to say either aren't favorites. We'll see how they're playing a month from now...
