As NBA opening week continues, some of the league's top stars took the court last night. With thirteen games in all, players like LeBron James, Blake Griffin, James Harden, Chris Paul, Anthony Davis, and John Wall hit the hardwood in one of the most exciting nights thus far in regular season.

Leading the night was James Harden with 34 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals in the Rockets win over Dallas. He wore wore the recently-unveiled Nike Zoom Crusader, a low-profile model that provides plenty of responsiveness for explosive players such as Harden. Blake Griffin also had a huge night, dropping 20 points and grabbing 17 boards against the Kings in the Jordan Super.Fly 2.

On the pitch, Borussia Dortmund downed VfB Stuttgart 6-1 on the back of a remarkable three consecutive goals from Robert Lewandowski. The Poland international completed his hat trick in less than twenty minutes in the Nike Hypervenom.

Be sure to check back again tomorrow morning for a recap of the top performers in today's college football action.
