Real fun first game! Pascal and Fred were awesome. Pascal should continue to impress. Real interested to see if FVV can continue developing as a scorer. Could be a game changer re: long term planning with him. 

Gasol clearly not quite up to speed yet. OG looking really good.

I also liked what I saw from Davis.

I’m hoping nurse only planned to play those 8 guys just for the opening ceremony night. Siakam being so involved in the offence really affected his stamina on defence. Guys were just blowing by him at will. Gasol needs load management. FVV should keep the starting job beside Lowry and OG. I’d like to see Terrance Davis with more playing time too. Overall the champs looked like they were improving throughout the game which is a great sign. Ugly win but a lot to learn from!

Nurse's short rotation was scary seeing as NO played 12 guys against us, not sure if that made the game harder than it needed to be. The lack of both Leonard and Green was extremely glaring last night. Hope that Powell can consistently give us about 9-15 points off the bench as opposed to 5.

We need someone who can create his own shot in that 2nd unit. If Klow and FVV will start, our bench has no offensive punch (and I don't want to see Norm trying to facilitate).

Nuggets has enough wings right now (especially if Porter becomes healthy).

Stanley + RHJ + 2nd pick for Barton 

2nd unit:

Klow/Barton
FVV/Davis 
OG/Powell
Siakam/Ibaka
Gasol/Hernandez

Anyone notice that on opening night, the leading scorers were:

Siakam
VanVleet
Kawhi
Danny Green

Fitting, given that we were celebrating our championship.

I think the term "viewers" equates to homes and establishments (e.g., bars). Network ratings cannot measure actual viewers since more than one person could be watching a program on the TV. 

Streaming numbers are not included in ratings.
