There were eleven NBA games on Friday’s schedule, and they notably saw Boston win in New Orleans and widen its lead at the top of the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee bowed out to Philadelphia, while Utah offered the scalp of Phoenix.
There is no longer any doubt, Boston is the best NBA team today! The Celtics went on to win their ninth straight victory at New Orleans: 109-117. Led by Jaylen Brown with 27 points and 10 rebounds, Derrick White with 26 points and Jayson Tatum with 19 points and 10 assists, the C’s dominated this game from start to finish. and advanced to 19 points. Still without Zion Williamson and despite Brandon Ingram’s 25 points, the Pelicans couldn’t get anything going. With 43.5% success on 3-pointers (especially 6/8 for White), Boston was unplayable and now has two wins over Milwaukee before going to Chicago. The Bucks, precisely in one of the shocks of the night, lost at Philadelphia, which won its third consecutive victory (110-102). Leading by thirteen points at the end of the first quarter, the 76ers pulled ahead midway through the third quarter before relinquishing control to Milwaukee midway through the last, eventually winning the game on the money. The score was indeed 99-99 with 4’22 left, but Philadelphia went on a 7-0 run to turn things around. Joel Embiid was still great, with 32 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists, but the 76ers are worried about Tyrese Maxey (24 points in 21 minutes), who shoots with his left foot. On the contrary, Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 25 points and 14 rebounds. Still in the East, Cleveland (No. 3) ended a five-game losing streak by defeating Charlotte 132-122 after two overtimes (41 points for Darius Garland and 34 points for Donovan Mitchell). The victory also followed Washington’s overtime against Miami (107-106, despite a triple-double by Kyle Lowry with 24 points, 10 points and 15 points). Big box, too, for DeMar DeRozan, who scored 41 points in Chicago’s loss against Orlando (107-108).
Markkanen goes up against Jazz hero Hayes Lakers
Utah, the runner-up to Portland, the leader in the West, ended a three-game losing streak by defeating “Phoenix” 134-133 in one of the clashes of the night. Only once in this match, leading for 33 seconds (120-121) in the middle of the last quarter, the Suns almost managed to stop in the extremely indecisive end of the game. But Lauri Markkanen scored twice in a span of 38 seconds to give the Jazz a 134-131 lead, while Devin Booker (49, 10 points) scored just two points to finish. . The 25-year-old Finn, the author of a fantastic start to the season, finished his career with 38 points. In another highly anticipated matchup, Dallas (5th) made short work of Denver (6th) and won 127-99. It should be said that Nuggets stars Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray (covid protocol) and Aaron Gordon (sickness) are missing. Luka Doncic took the opportunity to realize the 50th triple-double in his career: 33 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in 35 minutes. Logic was honored with Memphis and Golden State’s respective victories over Oklahoma City (121-110, Jaren Jackson 25 points) and New York (111-101, Stephen Curry 34 points). Evan Fournier never played another minute with the Knicks again. Another Frenchman, Killian Hayes, had a low performance in Detroit’s loss at the Lakers (128-121, 38 points and 16 rebounds for Anthony Davis). The French leader, who has had a major problem with his address since the start of the season, scored 18 points (4/6 on 3-pointers), his best since April, before picking up his sixth foul 2’28 from the end.
