NBA scores: Spurs beat Hornets in last minute, host Thunder on Thursday

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Anthony Davis was fantastic in his NBA debut, but it wasn't enough to lead the Hornets past the veteran Spurs in the teams' season openers Wednesday night. Next up for the Spurs is OKC.

While most of the NBA teams have already begun their seasons, the Oklahoma City Thunder don't tip off until the season's third night on Thursday. Their first opponents, the San Antonio Spurs, are already off to a winning start.

San Antonio had a lot to handle in New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis on Wednesday, but they still managed to hold on to win on the road 99-95. The Spurs host the Thunder at 8:30 p.m. CT in one of Thursday night's two NBA games in OKC's first game of the season. The game can be seen on TNT.

Davis, the No. 1 overall NBA pick, had a sterling debut while scoring 21 points with 7 rebounds. However, Tony Parker hit a go-ahead three with under a minute left and Tim Duncan tacked on a couple of free throws to give the Spurs the last-minute win. Duncan had 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Elsewhere around the league Wednesday night, the Lakers fell to 0-2 with a 116-106 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, James Harden scored 37 in his Houston debut to lead the Rockets to a 106-96 win over Detroit and the Clippers topped the Grizzlies 101-92.

Wednesday night's NBA scores:

  • Philadelphia 84, Denver 75
  • Indiana 90, Toronto 88
  • San Antonio 99, New Orleans 95
  • Houston 105, Detroit 96
  • Chicago 93, Sacramento 87
  • Utah 113, Dallas 94
  • Golden State 87, Phoenix 85
  • L.A. Clippers 101, Memphis 92
