UNDATED - The NBA schedule on election night consists of just three games.
In Chicago, the Bulls are playing host to Orlando. The visiting Magic may not have Dwight Howard any longer but they are going for their first 3-0 start to a season in three years. The Magic started the season with wins over Denver and Phoenix. The Bulls, who are 2-1, are looking to avoid their first set of back-to-back home losses in three years with tonight's game.
In Oklahoma City, the Western Conference champion Thunder are playing host to Toronto. Tonight's game puts an end to a three-game home stand for the Thunder, who won just one of the three games. The Raptors, who are also 1-2, are led this season by Kyle Lowry who is leading the team in scoring, 23.7 points a game, rebounding and assists. He's pulling down 7.3 rebounds a game so far while dishing out seven assists a game.
The final game of the night is in Denver where the Nuggets are entertaining Detroit. This game features two of the NBA's winless clubs as each team is 0-3. Tonight's game opens the home portion of the schedule for the Nuggets who were beaten by the Heat on Saturday 119-116. This marks the third straight season the Pistons have started 0-3. Tonight's game is the third of six-game road swing.
