NBA Season Starts

NBA Season Starts

Mac Shaw, Writer

The 20-21 NBA season started on December 22nd just a few months after it ended in October, with the Clippers and Lakers facing off in the first game of the season. There was much debate on the topic and it eventually ended up on this date. In the first game the Clippers beat the Lakers 116-109. This season will last only 72 games compared to the normal 82 in regular seasons.

Two teams that have had hot starts this season are the 76ers and the Lakers. The 76ers have had a great defense in their first 8 games and have gone only 7-1, the best in the NBA so far. Additionally the Lakers have gone 6-2 and even though they lost their first game against the Clippers they have still done very well with their star duo of Lebron James and Anthony Davis. These teams have had great starts but there will still be many more teams and players in the rest of the season.

Even though there have been many great performances there is still a lot of time ahead of us and we will see more teams either fall off our blow up in the coming months and weeks.
