After the Lakers' up-tempo offense sped past the Rockets for a 119-108 win, Houston Coach Kelvin Sampson said: "Just because they have a new offense doesn't mean they're going to score 120. You know, if you don't guard them, they're going to look good."

A year ago Washington opened the season 0-8. This season after losing their first nine games Wizards Coach Randy Wittman declared: "I believe these guys can win. I don't have any doubts of it. I come in here every day thinking 'this is the night; I feel good.' I might be dumb, but I believe in them, I really do."
After losing their season opener, the Grizzlies won eight straight before falling to Denver, 97-92, Monday at Memphis. "It was coming. Today we got what we deserved.
