Celtics: Boston hasn't beaten New York since a 100-97 road win on Jan. 10, 1993.

Hawks: All-Star Christian Laettner continues to struggle. He got NTC in early foul trouble and finished with eight points, giving him 23 through the first three games.

Knicks: New York's margin of victory was its largest since a 46-point win over Toronto on April 15, 1996. At halftime, a fan missed a chance to win $1 million when his shot from midcourt was off the mark.

Magic: Orlando failed to make a three-pointer in the game, ending its NBA record streak of consecutive games with a three-pointer at 316. The team had made a three in every game since Dec. 7, 1993, but missed all four it tried.

Raptors: After drawing 33,306 for their debut in 1995, the team drew 28,457 fans for last season's home opener and only 16,624 to see this year's opener against the Warriors.

Warriors: After taking 197 shots over the first two games, Golden State had only 88 against the Raptors.
