New York is already vibrating, Denver is taking revenge on Phoenix

The Knicks, worn by Julius Randle and Evan Fournier, rocked Madison Square Garden, beating Boston after double overtime, at the start of the NBA season.

If the season is like this premiere, Knicks fans will experience strong emotions, as it took their favorite team two ‘overtimes’, ten minutes more, and major performances from their star Randle and of their French recruit, Fournier, to overcome the Celtics (138-134).

Swept (4-0) in the semifinals of the Western Conference by the Suns in the last play-offs, the Nuggets managed a nice shot in Arizona by winning (110-98).
