In the only other game, the Raptors beat the Pelicans in overtime, 130-122. The Clippers are current favorites to win the NBA championship. Yes, really!

The Warriors played at Oakland Arena from 1971 to 2019. Last night they played their first regular-season game at their new arena, Chase Center in San Francisco, and lost to the Clippers, 141-122. The 141 was the Clippers' sixth-highest point total in franchise history. The Clippers are now 2-0. An impressive start – but how long will it last?

When I see the Golden State Warriors now, all I can think of is: "Behold, how the mighty have fallen." They are 3-13 (.188) after losing to the Mavericks by 48 points, 142 to 94. Dallas made 22 three-pointers and handed the Warriors their worst loss since 1973 when they lost to the Lakers by 56 points in game 3 of the NBA Finals.
