VIDEO. NBA newcomer defies the laws of gravity with monstrous block

by admin

Boston and Cleveland, numbers one and two in the NBA’s Eastern Conference, made no mistake on Wednesday evening. Leader Boston beat Atlanta 125-117, Cleveland beat Washington 106-114. Golden State won its second away win in a row at Philadelphia (104-127). And Charlotte lost to Toronto (117-123) despite a monstrous block from rookie (first-year player) Brandon Miller.

The Celtics remain in the winning mood. They recorded their 39th win of the season against Atlanta, compared to only twelve defeats. Standout Kristaps Porzingis (31 pts) was assisted by Derrick White (21 pts) and Jayson Tatum (20 pts). For the Hawks, number ten in the east, Saddiq Bey was the top scorer with 25 points.

Team in form Cleveland took its seventh win in a row, its fifteenth in the last sixteen matches. Donovan Mitchell (40 pts) led the Cavaliers. A weak Washington is penultimate in the east.

Golden State is now experiencing a resurgence. The disappointing number eleven of the Western Conference achieved a great victory in Philadelphia. Andrew Wiggins (21 points and 10 rebounds) made an invisible Stephen Curry (9 points) forget. The Warriors seem to have grown together after the tragic death of assistant Dejan Milojevic in mid-January. For Philadelphia it is already the seventh loss in eight games. Star player Joel Embiid, who underwent surgery on his left knee on Tuesday, will be in hospital for another month. The Sixers are fifth in the East.

San Antonio, the red lantern in the west, lost again to Miami (116-104). Victor Wembanyama’s 18 points and 13 rebounds were not enough for the visitors, who still had the lead at the break. For the home team, Tyler Herro (24 points) was the top scorer and Jimmy Butler recorded a ‘triple-double’ (17 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists). Miami, last season’s losing NBA finalist, is currently seventh in the East.

LA Clippers lose leadership position again

The LA Clippers have led the NBA’s Western Conference for just 24 hours. On Wednesday, they lost 106-117 at home to New Orleans, which recorded its fourth victory in a row.

The Clippers took the lead without playing on Tuesday, after defeats by Oklahoma City (124-117 at Utah) and Minnesota (129-123 at Chicago). But they could not enjoy that leadership position for long. New Orleans dominated in Los Angeles thanks to CJ McCollum (25 points) and Zion Williamson (21 points and 10 assists). For the Clippers, top scorer James Harden did not get further than 19 points. The Clippers drop again to fourth place in the west in the standings. New Orleans is tied with Phoenix for fifth place.

The Pelicans surpassed Sacramento, which surprisingly lost to Detroit (120-133). The red lantern in the east only took its seventh win of the season. Jaden Ivey (37 points) and Jalen Duren (20 points and 15 rebounds) were the standouts for the Pistons. Domantas Sabonis’ 30 points and 12 rebounds were not enough for the Kings. Sacramento is now seventh in the West.
