Each day, we'll recap the games and biggest news from the NBA. Here is the roundup for Tuesday, October 25, 2016.

Cleveland Cavaliers 117, New York Knicks 88

The Knicks went on a little run to take the lead in the second quarter, surprising many by hanging in there with the reigning NBA champions. Then, the Cavaliers decided to remind everybody why they were the team to receive championship rings and raise a championship banner earlier in the night.

LeBron James quickly earned the first triple-double of the season, scoring 19 points while dishing 14 assists and grabbing 11 rebounds. Kyrie Irving made the Knicks pay on open jumpers all night.

The one drawback was watching former Knick Iman Shumpert collide with Kristaps Porzingis, potentially giving him a concussion.

For the Knicks, their time in Cleveland was about seeing the debut of newly-acquired point guard Derrick Rose. He managed to score 17 points, but dominated the ball for long periods of possessions, turning it over four times and only earning one assist.

Portland Trail Blazers 113, Utah Jazz 104

Portland doesn't seem eager to cede the Northwest Division to Utah, as Damian Lillard scored 39 points and the Blazers won their NBA record 16th straight home opener. Joe Johnson led the Jazz with 29 points in his team debut. Neither team missed a free throw all game, a peculiarity on a night where attention was firmly drawn away from this game.

San Antonio Spurs 129, Golden State Warriors 100

Needless to say, but the Warriors aren't going 82-0 this season. Kevin Durant managed the scoring load in his Golden State debut, but the team looked completely out of sorts against San Antonio, virtually refusing to play defense and giving up almost as many offensive rebounds as the team secured total rebounds in the game.

The Spurs showed that the team will be just fine without Tim Duncan this season. Kawhi Leonard validated the MVP hype by dropping 35 points, while Jonathon Simmons scored 20 off the bench; no Warriors player scored more than five off the bench.

In the news

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis signed the most lucrative shoe deal for a European player in NBA history, jumping to Adidas.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver appeared on "The Mike & Mike Show," dismissing the idea that a new CBA had been agreed upon, but saying that an agreement is not far off.
