  • Young, Wolves hold off Pistons 97-91 (The Associated Press)
    The Minnesota Timberwolves' youth movement is in full effect, with Andrew Wiggins and Co. ushering in a new era in the wake of Kevin Love's departure. Thaddeus Young scored 19 points and hit a big 3-pointer with 90 seconds to play to lift the Timberwolves to a 97-91 victory over the Detroit Pistons, making Saunders a winner in his first home game as Timberwolves coach since 2005. Nikola Pekovic had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Ricky Rubio added 11 points, eight assists and seven boards. Caron Butler scored 24 points and D.J. Augustin had 20 points and six assists...

    The 2014-15 season does not figure to be a particularly good one for the Minnesota Timberwolves. After trading away Kevin Love this summer, the Wolves are left with a team of promising youngsters who figure to take a while to jell and become a playoff team. (This makes them not unlike the Love-led Wolves of a few seasons ago.) The results of the games don't matter much this year — it's all about more qualitative signs of progress. It appears that some fans won't have the patience to wait through the rebuilding process. In fact, one couldn't even...

    After a slow Tuesday, Big Wednesday was more like it for fantasy owners wanting to test out the goods. Bruski has the rundown.

  • Pistons-Timberwolves Preview (The Associated Press)
    Though the youth-laden Minnesota Timberwolves came up short in their opener, there was a lot to like about their performance against a playoff stalwart. The Detroit Pistons looked much less promising - and could be in for another tough night without Greg Monroe. Minnesota looks to claim the longest winning streak in series history Thursday night when it hosts Detroit. The Timberwolves opened their season on the road for the first time since 2000-01 with a 105-101 loss Wednesday at Memphis.

  • Nuggets open with 89-79 win over Pistons (The Associated Press)
    With key players returning from injury and still rounding into form, the Denver Nuggets leaned on Kenneth Faried. Faried had 22 points and 17 rebounds and the Nuggets opened the season with an 89-79 victory over Detroit, spoiling Stan Van Gundy's first game at the Pistons' coach on Wednesday night. ''He was huge for us right from the beginning of the game,'' Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. ''They're going to be better and we all will get better.'' Arron Afflalo, in his second tour with Denver after being acquired in an offseason trade with Orlando, had 15 points.

  • Gasol powers Memphis past Minnesota 105-101 (The Associated Press)
    The Grizzlies are 1-0 for the first time in a long, long time. Marc Gasol scored a career-high 32 points, and the Grizzlies beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 105-101 on Wednesday night for the franchise's first victory in a season opener since 2000, the year before the team moved to Memphis. ''It's an unbelievable thought.'' Zach Randolph added 25 points and 13 rebounds for Memphis, which had dropped its last 13 openers. ''That was a good game to start the season,'' Memphis coach Dave Joerger said.

  • Sidelined 18 months, Gallinari anxious for opener (The Associated Press)
    Danilo Gallinari's every moment on the court will be closely tracked and monitored. For now, no more than 20 minutes a game for the Denver Nuggets forward, no matter how well he's playing, how tight the game may be or how much he pleads. It's a restriction Gallinari can tolerate. Gallinari will return to the floor Wednesday night in the season opener against Detroit for the first time since blowing out that knee on April 4, 2013.

  • Pistons-Nuggets Preview (The Associated Press)
    Injuries contributed to the Denver Nuggets dropping from a 57-win team in 2012-13 to 11th place in the Western Conference last season. Now fully healthy, the Nuggets look to return to their winning ways starting Wednesday night against the visiting Detroit Pistons. Danilo Gallinari missed all of 2013-14 with a knee injury, JaVale McGee played in only five games and J.J. Hickson and Nate Robinson suffered ACL injuries, leaving point guard Ty Lawson and forward Kenneth Faried as the focal points of the offense. ''Ty Lawson has All-Star ability,'' coach Brian Shaw said.

  • BDL's 2014-15 NBA Season Previews: All 30 team previews, collected in one spot (Ball Don't Lie)
    It's been 136 days since the San Antonio Spurs put the finishing touches on their five-game demolition of the Miami Heat to win the 2013-14 NBA championship. Since then, we've seen a new decision that knocked over the dominoes that shifted the balance of power in the Eastern Conference, a foot fracture that could tilt the brutal West, a long overdue change in L.A., and more movement — of players, coaches, front-office staffers and everything else — than you can shake a stick at ... except in San Antonio, of course, where the Spurs brought back their entire O'Brien-winning roster...
