Winners and losers from NBA's Opening Night

The 2023-24 NBA season has arrived, and the first two games are in the books.  

After the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets had their Western Conference Finals rematch and Chris Paul and Kevin Durant both faced their old teams 

For the last three years, Anthony Davis has battled injuries while Jokic has emerged as the NBA's top center, winning two MVP trophies and a championship last year.
