Tony Parker led San Antonio to their third win, Boston got their first of the season over Washington, while the Bulls and the Rockets both lost their unbeaten starts, in last nights NBA action.

Tony Parker again led San Antonio to victory and 3-0, this time against Utah. The Spurs didn’t make it easy for themselves after squandering a 19 point lead, however it was a late rally by Parker, with 24 points and 10 assists, that eventually saw them home by 110-100 leaving them top of the Southwest division.

LeMarcus Aldridge led the way for Portland, as they ended the Rockets unbeaten start with a 95-85 win. Harden was kept quiet by the Trail Blazers with only 24 points, a quiet day in the office for their new signing, considering the start he has had.

Defending Champions Miami bounced back from their loss to New York, with a tight win over Denver, in fact it was achieved with only 6 seconds left on the clock, Bosh leading the way for the home team with a 40 point haul.

The Nets finally got their season underway, and much like New York the other night it was a fired up and emotional performance and a win over Toronto, which will lift their fans effected by the storm. Brook Lopez led the way for his team with 27 points and 5 rebounds in their 107-100 win.

The Bulls came crashing back down to earth as they were downed by New Orleans 89-82, while the Celtics landed their first win of the season against Washington 89-86, Paul Pierce with 27 points. Other winners on the night were Indiana, Milwaukee, Dallas and Golden State over Sacramento, Cleveland, Charlotte and the Clippers.

In tonight’s action, Philadelphia travel to New York in the big Atlantic Division clash. Carmelo Anthony was the hero in their opening game against the Heat, the home fans will be hoping for another inspirational performance from their star man. Toronto will be looking to put last nights loss to Brooklyn behind them when they welcome Minnesota, Phoenix and Atlanta are away to Orlando and Oklahoma, and on the West coast the Lakers, still without a win in 3, take on Detroit still looking for their first win. The Lakers will have to do without Steve Nash for another week as he has a fracture in his left leg.
