Star of the day

Dallas’ Smith was all over the place, showing why he was the ninth overall pick in this year’s draft. He outplayed the Suns’ Jackson, who was taken five spots ahead of Smith.

Local spotlight

Vaughn went off for the Bucks, scoring from seemingly everywhere. The former UNLV and Findlay Prep player made 13 of 18 shots, including 3 of 7 from beyond the 3-point arc.


“I hold myself to a high standard. Obviously, I’m not hitting shots right now, but I’ve got to know the work that I’ve put in to get to this point, those shots are eventually going to fall.”

On the scene

Dallas Mavericks owner and “Shark Tank” star Mark Cuban watched his team beat the Phoenix Suns at the Thomas & Mack Center. Recently signed free agent Vince Carter showed up at Cox Pavilion to watch his new team, the Sacramento Kings, play the Memphis Grizzlies. Carter did more than watch, though.
