While there was only three games on today, we saw plenty of impressive performances, headlined by Anthony Davis' 40-20 explosion against the Memphis Grizzlies.

If you missed any of the action, we had you covered with live updates, highlights and more from today's games:

Miami Heat def. Atlanta Hawks, 112-97


Jimmy Butler got his Miami Heat career off to a winning start, dropping 21 points, five rebounds and three steals in the win, but it was Tyler Herro who stole the headlines, pouring in a team-high 29 points, including 19 in the second quarter alone.

Herro's 29 is the most points scored by a Heat rookie since Dwyane Wade in 2004.

Hawks point guard Trae Young suffered a right ankle sprain midway through the second quarter and did not return.

Dallas Mavericks def. Denver Nuggets, 109-106


The Mavs escaped with a narrow win on the road, despite a quiet night from Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. With the duo combining for just 22 points on 7-of-26 from the field, they leaned on their bench down the stretch to pull out the win.

Nine players scored in double figures for the Mavs, with their bench outscoring the Nuggets reserves 61-22.

Los Angeles Lakers def. Memphis Grizzlies, 120-91


Anthony Davis was unstoppable against the Grizzlies, exploding for 40 points and 20 rebounds, knocking down 26-of-27 from the free throw line.

Davis becomes the first Laker to have a 40-20 game since Shaquille O'Neal in 2003.

After holding a two-point lead at the half, the Lakers blew the game open behind a 22-0 run in the third quarter.
