Chicago Blackhawks showed no quit against the Detroit Red Wings. They trailed by two goals twice in last night’s game and came back to win the game in overtime, 4-3. Max Domi scored the winning goal for the hawks in an unassisted play. An impressive home opener for the hawks, and this could be the final home opener for Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.
Denver Nuggets picked up their first win of the season against the defending champions Golden State Warriors with a 128-123 victory. Two-time league MVP Nikola Jokic had a triple-double with 26 points, 12 rebounds, and ten assists. The nuggets going on the road to win this game showed me a lot of promise for this team this season. A healthy Nuggets team is a title contender. Nuggets do need to improve in not giving away big leads. Warriors almost stole this game from them. Defense will be crucial for Denver if they want to make teams fear them.
The almighty Utah Jazz, without Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, are now 2-0 this season. Yes, it’s only two games into the season, but we didn’t expect this solid start from a team that lost two All-Stars. How did they do it? They took on Rudy Gobert and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night and showed them what they got on the court. Take Jordan Clarkson, for example. Jordan Clarkson scored 29 points on 7-for-12 shooting from 3-point range. Another name that comes to mind is Lauri Markkanen. He finished the game with 24 points and 13 boards. The Jazz defeated the Timberwolves 132-126.
Last night on WWE Smackdown, Logan Paul solidly closed the show. Paul said many things during his promo, but my favorite quote is when he said this: “No one expects me to step in the ring with the GOAT and actually win. But what happens if I do?” The line is well delivered and sounded so great on the mic. Jey Uso ambushed Paul from behind in the ring. Jey Uso is considered the hot head of “The Bloodline” group. Roman Reigns told him that himself during a segment last Friday on Smackdown. As for Logan Paul, he didn’t stay down. He got back up and laid out Jey Uso with one right-handed shot.
