The Miami Heat, setting a franchise record for most points in a season-opening game, rode a 26-2 first-quarter run and 27 bench points from Tyler Herro to a 137-95 win over the visiting Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.

Miami also got 21 points from Jimmy Butler and 20 points and a game-high 13 rebounds from Bam Adebayo.

Milwaukee, which went nine minutes without a field goal in a brutal first quarter, was led by superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Khris Middleton was held to 10 points.

The Bucks played without two starters: center Brook Lopez (back spasms) and Jrue Holiday (bruised heel).

Warriors 115, Clippers 113

Stephen Curry capped a 45-point performance with two late 3-pointers, allowing host Golden State to spoil a valiant effort by Los Angeles.

Curry scored 25 points in the first quarter. He wound up 8-for-13 on 3-pointers and completed a double-double with a team-high 10 rebounds. Andrew Wiggins added 17 points and Damion Lee 11.

Paul George paced the Clippers with 29 points, shooting 5-for-11 on 3-point attempts, and had team highs of 11 rebounds and six assists. Bledsoe finished with 22 points.

Hawks 113, Mavericks 87

Trae Young, who had 28 double-doubles last year, picked up where he left off by recording 19 points and 14 assists as Atlanta ruined the debut of Dallas coach Jason Kidd.

Cam Reddish came off the bench to lead the Hawks with 20 points on 7-for-15 shooting and three 3-pointers. John Collins tallied 16 points and nine rebounds, and Clint Capela had 12 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks.

Luka Doncic recorded 18 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists for Dallas. Jalen Brunson came off the bench to score 17 points.
