Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook clearly saw Anthony Davis' insane performance on Wednesday night, because he did him one better on Friday night. Speaking of Davis, he had another historic game of his own last night, but was it enough to get past the Golden State Warriors? Here's the NBA roundup for Friday, October 28, 2016.

Cleveland Cavaliers 94, Toronto Raptors 91

In a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Finals, the defending NBA champs proved to be the victors again, getting by Toronto thanks to a smooth shooting touch from Kyrie Irving, who had 26 points. DeMar DeRozan had another strong performance with 32 points of his own.

Brooklyn Nets 103, Indiana Pacers 94

Jeremy Lin, once the hero across town in Manhattan, starred in his home debut, finishing just an assist and rebound shy of a triple-double in the win. Indiana power forward Thaddeus Young had 19 points; he was traded from the Nets in the offseason.

Detroit Pistons 108, Orlando Magic 82

This game was decided in the second quarter, when the Pistons outscored the Magic 30-9. The Pistons are nearing a deal to move the team downtown, potentially making this the last home opener in the history of The Palace of Auburn Hills, a venue famous for hosting the biggest brawl in NBA history.

Oklahoma City Thunder 113, Phoenix Suns 110 (OT)

Russell Westbrook made the court his personal playground in this game.

He took the most shots of his entire career (44) and scored 51 points while recording a triple-double, the most points scored in a triple-double in four decades. It's safe to expect more games like this from Westbrook this season as he tries to propel the Thunder on his own.

Charlotte Hornets 97, Miami Heat 91

Charlotte was down by as much as 19 in the second half, but came back to steal the win from Miami. Charlotte was eliminated by the Heat last postseason, so there was a revenge factor in the victory. Charlotte center Roy Hibbert left the game in the first quarter with knee soreness.

Houston Rockets 106, Dallas Mavericks 98

Houston took the prize in this intrastate rivalry, with James Harden contributing across the board and Trevor Ariza dropping a surprising 27 points of his own on the night. Dirk Nowitzki missed just the second home opener in his lengthy Mavs career due to a stomach ailment.

Utah Jazz 96, Los Angeles Lakers 89

The Jazz picked up their first win of the season behind a double-double from French center Rudy Gobert. The Lakers had a significant scare when second overall draft pick Brandon Ingram left the game with knee soreness and didn't return. The ailment isn't believed to be serious, but the Lakers will be cautious with their prized rookie.

Golden State Warriors 122, New Orleans Pelicans 114

The Warriors shook off the disappointment of an opening night beatdown against the Spurs, triumphing over New Orleans thanks to a 30 point, 17 rebound performance from Kevin Durant. Anthony Davis scored 45 in the loss; his 95 points through the first two games of the season are the most in NBA history.

In the news

Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade was fined $25,000 for making an offensive gesture on Thursday night. The Philadelphia 76ers have asked Sevyn Streeter, the national anthem performer who was canceled on opening night, to return and perform the anthem before a game this season.
