NBA Roundup: Thompson, Stuckey In Action

Posted: Updated:

It was opening night of the NBA season for several local players, but it was Klay Thompson and Rodney Stuckey doing the most damage for their respective teams.

Thompson, the former Washington State star, scored 16 points and pulled down eight rebounds as the Golden State Warriors snuck by the Suns in Phoenix, 87-85.

Stuckey, the pride of Eastern Washington University, scored nine points and dished out six assists, but his effort was not enough for the Detroit Pistons, who fell 105-96 to the Houston Rockets.

Both players return to action Friday. Thompson and the Warriors host Memphis in Oakland, while Stuckey and the Pistons hit the road to Phoenix.
