Kevin Durant apologized Friday for comments he made about India when asked in a recent interview what the country was like. The Warriors forward, who spent time in the country last month to help grow basketball around the world, tweeted that his comments were “taken out of context” and that he “should’ve worded it better.”

Kyrie Irving, playing his former team in his first regular-season game with the Boston Celtics, heard hearty boos in pregame introductions and each time he touched the ball early in Tuesday’s opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.
Irving was the first player announced during introductions, and boos overwhelmed any cheers. He exchanged a quick dap with LeBron James before the opening tip. Then, after getting booed when he touched the ball on the first possession, he finished a floater over his former teammate for the game’s first points.
