Podcast #74: Sacramento Kings, Revenge of the Unloved

– MVP: After missing two games, the Serbian player led his team to a victory over the top team with a triple-double and the decisive basket with 16 seconds left. This is the definition to be found in the next Larousse. Nikola Jokic Helped the Nuggets win on the floor of the Pelicans with a floater in the final seconds and a very good copy: 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

A win for NOLA would be a bit of a heist, as Denver led for most of the game and by as many as 19 before the Pelicans turned it around to take a one-point lead in the final minute.

LeBron James continues to defy time and space, but… in vain. The King put on a stunning individual performance in the Los Angeles derby, even by his own standards. With 46 points and 9 3-pointers – his NBA record – LeBron did everything to keep the Lakers afloat, but his copy only moved him one step closer to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record. The excellence of the “Chosen One” was not enough, and the Clippers won their 10th in a row against their LA neighbors.

Thanks to one time, there was a gap Paul George (27 points) and Kawhi Leonard (25 points), with 19 3-pointers, we never saw the Lakers again, and LeBron finished the game even on the bench, even though he probably had 50 or more points at his feet. As a consolation, he can now boast at least one 40-point game against EVERY team in the league.

Nikolay Batum He brought 4 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 block from the bench. Clippers 3 wins in a row and with this success double in Dallas.

– The Mavs, to be honest, are not doing very well, and this was confirmed at home against Washington. Despite having 41 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists Luka Doncic, the Texans suffered their 7th loss in 10 games. Everything was decided on the line and in the last seconds. The Slovenian ripped his shirt in frustration after missing a free throw that would have given Dallas the lead with 12 seconds left.

He has guilt behind him Kyle Kuzma (30 points) that allowed the former Laker to offer the Wizards a win, even if it was just one of two successful shots. On the last possession, Delon Wright was able to steal the ball to prevent Spencer Dinwiddie from taking the final shot.

Bam Adebayo (30 pts, 15 rbds) Continues to be important for a replacement spot in the All-Star Game. Without him, the Heat wouldn’t have been able to overwhelm Boston and limit the Celtics to 13 points in the final quarter. It was Adebayo’s shot with 20 seconds remaining that gave Miami the lead for good against the best team in the NBA this season.

In Jaylen Brown’s absence, Jason Tatum he still did his best with 31 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists.

– After four straight losses, the Knicks beat Cleveland at Madison Square Garden. Julius Randle He was huge with 36 points, 13 rebounds and 8 3-pointers to lead New York.

Donovan Mitchell, who returned from a three-game absence, had 24 points, 8 assists and 8 rebounds.

– Bulls have not fully recovered and can blame themselves. They’re on a three-game winning streak and, despite facing the Pacers, who are still without Tyrese Haliburton, they’re running out of Indiana. Chicago led by as many as 21 points in the first half before squandering that lead. The players cracked under the blows of Billy Donovan Benedict MathurinThe author of the most important basket of the match with 29 seconds remaining and Myles Turner (26 points).

Pacers lost 7 in a row.

– Phoenix was able to survive the storm. Here’s the Suns, who are riding a four-game winning streak after an unusual success at home against Charlotte. We have to remember that before that, Chris Paul and his friends had 12 defeats in 14 matches and we were not sure that there would be good weather after the rain. Nothing is guaranteed yet, but Monty Williams has found solutions in Devin Booker’s absence. It’s tonight Cam Johnson a player who scored 24 points in just 18 minutes.

The Suns are 7th, tied with the Mavs and no longer out of the top 4.
