Nba preseason: Curry puts on a show, the Knicks fly and Beal gets injured

by admin

Steph scores 41 points in the Warriors’ victory over Portland. New York bends the Wizards, who lose their star to a knee injury, but it doesn’t seem serious

Steph Curry closes his preseason with a bang, signing 41 points against the Blazers, New York overtakes Washington thanks to Randle’s goal at the end while Dallas, with Doncic and Porzingis at rest, has the better of the reigning champions. Miami dominates Boston, San Antonio, on the other hand, wins the Texan derby with the Rockets.

The protagonist

Steph Curry decides to close the preseason with a flourish, producing one of his usual standing ovation performances. Against Portland the Warriors phenomenon has fun and above all entertains the San Francisco public. 41 points in just 30 ‘of play, with 13/23 from the field and 7/14 from long distance, to which he also adds nine rebounds and a series of highlight baskets. Absolutely spatial, especially the penetration in the first half final. Steph Curry sends Nurkic to the perimeter bar, gives the Portland defense a headache and then finds the retina with a sublime movement after also being fouled. An absolutely stunning three-player game that perfectly captures the wonderful night of the Warriors player.

the match

For Tom Thibodeau there are no friendlies, so at the Garden the last regular season aperitif seems like a regular season match. Important minutes for several players of the rotation and even some intensity. Washington does not hold back even if Wes Unseld Jr. uses the bench more. In the end, an enjoyable match emerges that remains uncertain until the end. With Beal having to return to the locker room after only nine minutes, Washington’s first attacking option becomes Dinwiddie (17 points n 26 ‘) who receives surprising attacking help from Neto (25 points with 10/13 from the field). The Knicks respond with a super Rose (28 points with a nice +20 of +/-) and with a Randle (21 points and 10 rebounds) in alternating current which, however, when needed always seems to find the right answer. Just the all star from New York solves the match from the middle distance, after the triple d Kispert had equalized the score 15 ” from the siren, at the end giving the success to the Knicks who thus close their preseason with a record of 4 -0.

to be reviewed

Bradley Beal’s appearance at Garden is not fortunate. Surreal from a certain point of view, considering that the Wizards leader despite not being vaccinated can regularly take part in an NBA race in New York due to the absurd vaccination exemption for guest players. So while Nets fans have to contend with Kyrie Irving’s absence, Beal can easily play in New York. However, the runway at Madison by the Wizards leader only lasts nine minutes. Beal, in fact, for a problem in his right knee is forced to throw in the towel, certainly not the best way to send the preseason on the bulletin board. The instrumental tests will reveal the extent of the injury but at the end of the race Unseld Jr. seemed optimistic. “It shouldn’t be anything special, we’ll see the results of the exams.”


New York-Washington 115-113 (Rose 28, Grandson 25), Miami-Boston 121-100 (Herro 29, Tatum 23), Detroit-Philadelphia 112-108 (Grant 24, Drummond 17), Indiana-Cleveland 94-110 (Bitadze 18, Osman 14), Chicago-Memphis 118-105 (LaVine 31, Jackson Jr. 29), Milwaukee-Dallas 103-114 (Antetokounmpo 26, Brunson 17), San Antonio-Houston 126-98 (White, Murray 20, Wood 19), Golden State-Portland 119-97 (Curry 41, McCollum 26).
