The NBA's first night back was no let down.
The action started with a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference semi-finals between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers. If you missed any of the action from that game, we had you covered with live updates and highlights from the Celtics' 105-87 victory.
The nightcap began with the Warriors' 2018 NBA Championship ring ceremony and concluded with a 108-100 victory for Golden State over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Stephen Curry finished with 32 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, shooting 11-for-20 from the field, burying five threes as the game's top performer.
The Warriors had a commanding 57-47 lead at the half, but Paul George and the Thunder came gunning out in the second half. They took the lead early in the third and the game went back-and-forth from there. George's 21-point second half was nearly enough to get the job done for Oklahoma City, but the Warriors closed the game out down the stretch.
