There was a new championship banner on display in the arena and the players were given their championship ring for their achievement last season. To start off, San Antonio SPURS finished off the game from where they left off last season. They defeated the Portland TRAIL BLAZERS 106-97.
Fabricio OBERTO who was starter, posted 6 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal & 1 block shot.
No points for SCOLA’s Debut
The Houston ROCKETS tip off their season with 95-93 over a Los Angeles LAKERS who have plenty of uncertainty about the future of their star player.
Never mind about that, as this was also going to be Luis SCOLA competitive debut in the NBA.
By his own standard, this wasn’t the kind of performance anyone would have expected from him but he is still new and needs time to adjust.
