I could feel it,” James said. “It’s just my first action since the Finals and my timing was a little off and turnovers, I think, just trickled down to everybody. So, I made everyone’s timing off.”The starting five was expectedly rusty with the group having spent little time together. Wade was just bought out by the Bulls on Sept. 24. Crowder and Isaiah Thomas went to Cleveland as part of the Kyrie Irving trade on Aug. 30. And Love was just recently informed that he’d be moving to center with the unit from power forward.

We’re going to have changes, we’re going to make changes, we’re going to become a better team as the games go on. So, the team opening night will not be the team that we know we can be.”RAPTORS 116, PISTONS 94The Raptors never trailed as newcomer CJ Miles scored 19 points off the bench, including a 5-for-8 effort from 3-point range.Ish Smith led the Pistons with a game-high 22 points off the bench as the starting five struggled.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson MOST READ Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene View comments
