Star of the day

Trey Lyles, Utah’s second-year power forward, had 30 points and nine rebounds and scored on a tip-in at the first overtime buzzer to send the Jazz’s game against Portland to sudden death. The 6-foot-10-inch Canadian was the 12th overall pick of the 2015 draft out of Kentucky.

Local spotlight

In a game featuring top overall draft pick Ben Simmons and former UNLV guard Patrick McCaw, a second-round pick, ex-Rebels big man Chris Wood shined the brightest, scoring 22 points on 8-for-12 shooting off the bench in Philadelphia’s 85-77 loss to Golden State. The 6-foot-11-inch Wood wasn’t drafted in 2015, but signed with the 76ers and appeared in 17 games last season. McCaw had 11 points for the Warriors.

Quotable

“I’ve never been a part of a sudden-death basketball game, but I wanted to make sure the first one I was a part of that we came out on top.” — Blazers forward Pat Connaughton, after draining a game-winning 3-pointer on Portland’s first possession of double overtime.

On the scene

Wizards All-Star guard John Wall and backcourt partner Bradley Beal signed autographs from their courtside seats at halftime of the Wizards-Nets game at Cox Pavilion, and Celtics president Danny Ainge and coach Brad Stevens watched the Boston-Dallas game.
