Daily Dish: Carmelo, Pierce, D-Rose, CRAZY DUNK, 76ers and much more!
Who’d have thunk it? The Philadelphia 76ers are 3-0, with wins over the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls.
The first weekend of the year in the NBA was wildly unexpected. The Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers are two of the last four remaining unbeaten teams. Meanwhile the Miami Heat, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers are all sitting with two early season losses. No reason to panic however as November is about as important in basketball as preseason is in football.
