Biggest storylines

Randle at the buzzer!

2021-22 looms as a big season for Julius Randle, as the All-Star forward looks to bounce back from a disappointing postseason.

The Knicks shocked many by claiming home court in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, before being eliminated comfortably by the Atlanta Hawks.

Randle was unable to produce his best in that series, but an early season game winner to wrap up the preseason may provide a spark heading into the regular season.

The midrange stepback set the Madison Square Garden alight and capped off a 21-point, 10-rebound night for Randle.

Stars get final tune up

It wasn't just Randle that made the most of the final day of preseason, with a host of stars putting up big numbers.

Stephen Curry confirmed he has well and truly worked off the rust, pouring in 41 points as the Golden State Warriors defeated Portland. Curry finished 13-for-23 from the field and 7-for-14 from long range in the scoring explosion.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continued to show off his jumpshot against the Dallas Mavericks, needing only 25 minutes to put up 26 points and 10 rebounds. Antetokounmpo hit a series of midrange turnarounds and also connected on both of his long range attempts.

Jimmy Butler and Jayson Tatum each topped 20 points as the Heat battled the Celtics, while

The Bulls are back?

The Chicago Bulls completed a perfect preseason by handling the Memphis Grizzlies, 118-105.

Zach LaVine led the way with 31 points, while Nikola Vucevic added 23 and DeMar DeRozan 19.

It's hard to project how preseason form with translate to the regular season but the expected offensive firepower of the Chicago lineup had been on full display. Behind theire version of the big three and Lonzo Ball, the Bulls have averaged 118 points per game.

Perhaps more impressively they have held their opponents to an average of 96.5 points per game. It's a nice start, now let's move on to the real stuff.
