Chris Paul out vs. Kings with bruised left knee

One night after a gruesome broken ankle just six minutes into the season cost Boston top free agent Gordon Hayward - perhaps for the entire season - the Celtics fell to 0-2 by giving up an 11-1 run that left Milwaukee with a 97-90 lead and under three minutes to play.

James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets and Chris Paul #3 of the Los Angeles Clippers shake hands before the game on December 19, 2015 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Fox might not win Rookie of the Year, but there won't be many rookies more fun to watch. "We deserved to lose", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

In other games, Tobias Harris scored 17 of his 27 points in the first quarter, helping Detroit celebrate their return downtown with victory over Charlotte, 102-90. Cauley-Stein had 21 points on 10-for-15 shooting, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots. But if he's a factor on offense and can cause problems on defense consistently, the Kings will build from there.

Zach Randolph missed making his Kings debut a day after undergoing oral surgery, but Vince Carter and Hill provided a veteran presence for the new-look Kings as they move forward beginning the season without DeMarcus Cousins after he was traded to New Orleans last February. He finished with four points, eight rebounds, and 11 assists, but shot just 2-9 from the field.

When the game was tight down the stretch, the Kings were unpredictable.

Justin Jackson vs.Trevor Ariza and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute - Jackson, the 15th overall pick in the 2017 draft, will have a trial by fire to start his National Basketball Association career as he matches up with a pair of savvy veterans. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute contributing on that end of the floor. While he may not score 14 points every game, Mbah a Moute will definitely keep Jackson on his toes.

Eric Gordon was to start in place of Paul, who still could be ready by Saturday but D'Antoni said, "I think he's still in play but I think it's hard".

Houston's win wasn't official until a video review confirmed that Kevin Durant's possible game-winning 12-footer from the left baseline was still on his fingertips when the final horn sounded. Joerger has a similar challenge in finding the pieces who mesh together at different points for the Kings between his kiddie corps and veteran newcomers.

The game is being broadcasted locally on NBCSports California and AT&T Sports-Southwest.
