The Lakers, handled by Indiana crackers, were able to turn the situation around to get a snatch win (105-100), the first time in three games. The Los Angeles ownership, which lost Anthony Davis for at least two weeks, chased down a good portion of the game after the score, trailing by 12 points last quarter.
It was the moment when Kyle Kuzma, on the bench at the start of the match, chose to get out of his box. The strong American winger hit 15 of his 24 points (13 rebounds) this last quarter.
Eight seconds from the end and when they were three points behind, the pacers lost a precious ball. Malcolm Procton’s pass (29 points, 7 rebounds, 6 W) did not land in the hands of Domontas Saponis (20 points, 14 rebounds, 8 watts) but Kentavius Caldwell-Pope blocked two free throws that sealed the game’s lead.
Discreet, LeBron James finished with 18 points and 10 assists.
Cobert’s jazz moves forward
After two defeats to end the first half of the season, he gave up a run at the Western Conference, resuming the winning streak (114-99) at the expense of Jazz Houston. Without managing the Rockets to make up for this delay in the second half, the NBA leader took a 17-point lead at the break.
Donovan Mitchell added the highest score (28 points, 8 bds, 7 rebounds), Mike Conley (20 points), Rudy Cobert added a double-double (14 points, 13 rebounds) and always showed himself defending, with six counters.
Nothing is going to happen to Houghton, which has recorded its 15th loss to Utah.
Miami is still entering
Fourth in the East, the Heat continued their best series and recorded their third win, ninth in ten games. After beating the Bulls (101-90), Miami fired its leader Jimmy Butler (28 points, 8W) and a Goran tracker last quarter (20 of the 25 points he scored in the final).
Against, Zack Law shone with 30 points (best scorer of the match), but in vain.
Nicola Jogic was decisive in monetary time and allowed his claws to break out of Grizzlys’ grip and win at Tennessee (103-102). Orlando, still losing to Frenchman Evan Fornier, exploded against Spurs. Magic took the lead by twelve points after the first quarter, but they were far from San Antonio’s right on the scoreboard (104-77).
Finally, in the final game of the evening, New Orleans beat Cleveland (116-82), in particular, to Brandon Ingram (28 points).
