Rui Hachimura was sent to the Lakers!

– “Boston” missed 100 points only three times this season, including twice against “Orlando”. The Magic took advantage of the absences of Robert Williams, Marcus Smart and Malcolm Brogdon to again prevent the Celtics from going to the hoops. Boston had won 9 in a row, and its streak ended in Florida in part because of that Paolo Banchero (23 points), Wendell Carter Jr. (21 points, 11 rebounds) and the Magic’s physical and aggressive style of play.

Jahmal Mosley’s players celebrated his return to competition Jonathan Isaac, 10 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 assist in 10 minutes he didn’t play for 2 and a half years! 52 points Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum so that more than half of those in Boston were not enough.

– Milwaukee found its part Giannis Antetokounmpo When he moved to Detroit, it turned out to be a formality. The Bucks led by 28 points at halftime behind the Greek Freak, who played just 27 minutes on the floor but had time to put up 29 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. On the Pistons’ side, Killian Hayes was on the wing, having sprained his left shoulder during the Paris Game.

Despite the logical route, we still have to note a very good fit Jalen Duren. Holder, the youngest player in the NBA, had a double-double with 23 points, 15 rebounds and 2 blocks.


– Portland really needed a win to restore confidence. It happened at home with San Antonio. The Blazers pulled off their upset of the Spurs by scoring 147 points in a game that was admittedly a little too open for the purists. It happened in the second half Damian Lillard (37 points, 12 points) and his men created a hole to break the bad dynamics. Lillard, by the way, became the 7th most prolific 3-pointer in NBA history.

San Antonio has lost 7 of its last 8 games and is 14th in the West, just ahead of Houston.

– The Rockets actually won a game, and that’s always a small thing. After a 13-game losing streak, the Texans earned themselves some credit by offering Minnesota, which still struggles against teams at the bottom of the …

This game was an opportunity Jalen Green bouncing back in style after a tough match against the same Wolves on Saturday. The sophomore caught fire and scored an NBA record 42 points (on 15-of-25 shooting) to lead the Rockets to their 11th win of the season.

Not since January 16th. Rudy Gobert (15 points, 16 rebounds, 4 blocks) returned to Minnesota’s top five, unfortunately for the loss.

– It took Utah a quarter to get into its game, but it calmly handled the Hornets afterward. Having said that, it makes things easier when an opponent only hits 2 3-pointers in a basketball game in 2023…Charlotte shot 2-of-16 and is clearly having trouble in that area, as Steve Clifford has already finished the season with 3 award-winning baskets behind the arc. his lowest performance came on December 3 against Milwaukee.

Lauri MarkkanenStill dreaming of his first NBA All-Star Game, he scored 25 points with 11 rebounds and continued his campaign.

Utah is 7th in the West behind the Mavs and Clippers.

– The Bulls digested their stay in Paris quite well. Chicago celebrated its 1,000th NBA game DeMar DeRozan With a home win over the Hawks. Unlike the last two matches between the two teams, there is no need to make noise this time. DeRozan (26 points), LaVine (20 points) and their teammates came out loud in the fourth quarter to break the tie and hand the seemingly recovering Falcons their second straight loss.

Chicago has won three in a row to pull within two of 11th-place Toronto. We are still a long way from the start of the season, but the game is going much better than it was a few weeks ago.

– On this week’s episode of the podcast (online throughout the day) we talk about the Kings and they deserve it. Sacramento smothered Memphis from the start with new offensive fireworks (a franchise-record 47 points in the first quarter, an NBA-record 12 3-pointers). However, it wasn’t until the 4th quarter that Mike Brown’s men got rid of the stubborn Grizzlies. Memphis, without Ja Morant, still held on (33-10) before taking the final lap.

Trey Lyles (24 points) was excellent and Domantas Sabonisin triple-double (14 points, 11 pds, 10 rebounds), still decisive with 6th TD and 36th double-double.

It’s Sacramento’s 7th win in 8 games, 3rd more than ever, and they’re en route to an exciting return to the playoffs 17 years after their last appearance.
