Kelly Olynyk's putback of Dwyane Wade's missed jumper produced the go-ahead basket with 0.2 seconds left Thursday night, lifting the Miami Heat to a ragged 113-112 comeback victory over the host Washington Wizards, who were without new center Dwight Howard for their season opener.
Olynyk was booed every time he touched the ball, on account of a past playoff fracas with the Wizards back when he was with the Boston Celtics. But he certainly got to enjoy the way this game ended.
Philadelphia 127, Chicago 108: Ben Simmons had 13 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists and Joel Embiid had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the host 76ers past the Bulls, who got 30 points from Zach LaVine in their season opener.
• Denver agreed a contract extension with coach Michael Malone, who was in the final season of a four-year deal.
