A year ago, Golden State Warriors were considered as the best team in the NBA. With a move to the swanky new Chase Center in the works, the Warriors were on their way to NBA domination. As such, much was expected of the Warriors this NBA season. However, after injuries to Klay Thompson, Steph Curry, Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell, not to mention five losses already this season, NBA Week 2 sees the Warriors' sheen begin to fade.

That's enough of the doldrums. NBA 2019-20 Week 2 also witnessed some dominating performances across the board. Houston Rockets superstar James Harden registered his 80th 40-point game against the Memphis Grizzlies to see Rockets emerge 107-100 winners in the game. LeBron James recorded a third-straight triple-double to guide the LA Lakers to victory over Chicago Bulls. LA Clippers star Kawhi Leonard has led one of the most terrifying offences in the league. Leonard, however, is set to miss the game against Milwaukee Bucks. Here's a look at the most impressive plays from NBA Week 2.
