MLK Day: Lakers Offer Utah; Milwaukee Falls Again

There are no four in a row for the Lakers. Beaten in their last three games; the Californian franchise ended this losing streak last night by offering Utah in their fourth (101-95). While LeBron James’ teammates (25 points; 7 rebounds and 7 assists) were ahead of the break (52-46); the Jazz woke up in the 3rd quarter to take control of the game (72-78). Shocked; the Lakers knew how to find the resources to reverse the situation and sign a 22nd success in 44 games (7th in the West). If Rudy Gobert (19 points and 16 rebounds) tied the visitors (4th); Mitchell had more difficulty shooting (13 points; 6 of 19). On the other hand; for his part; everything is going well for Phoenix. While the Golden State Warriors are not at their best; the Suns shine like in San Antonio (107-121). Led by a super Devin Booker (48 points); Monty Williams’ players logically defeated the Spurs at the AT&T Center for a fourth straight victory. Now; the Arizona franchise (34 wins in 43 games) has three more successes than its direct competitors. For its part; Dallas played fear against Oklahoma City (104-102). Thanks to Luka Doncic; author of a new triple-double (20 points; 11 rebounds and 12 assists) but clumsy in shooting (4 of 17); the Texans got the best of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s streak (34 points) .

The Bucks on the rough; the Heat on fire

In the East; Milwaukee’s slump continues. Traveling to Atlanta on the night of Monday to Tuesday; the Bucks were defeated again (121-114). However; the defending NBA champions had done their job in the first two quarters and seemed to be off to a good start (50-62); but the Hawks reacted in style from then on. At State Farm Arena; Trae Young (30 points and 11 assists) improved his team (six players with more than ten points) to topple the team of Giannis Antetokounmpo (27 points; 6 rebounds and 6 assists) and Khris Middleton (34 points and 7 rebounds). That’s now six losses in the last eight games for the latter; before hosting the Memphis Grizzlies. If some doubt; it is not the case of Miami; which has also found Bam Adebayo. Against the Toronto Raptors; the Heat prevailed in Florida (104-99); thanks mainly to a triple-double signed by Jimmy Butler (19 points; 10 rebounds and 10 assists). With this victory number 28 in 44 games; Erik Spoelstra’s players are already second in their Conference; behind the Chicago Bulls. Finally; Orlando; the worst record in the League; suffered another defeat against Portland (88-98). Without Damian Lillard; the Blazers could count on a huge Jusuf Nurkic (21 points and 22 rebounds) to put Sacramento a little further in the fight for play-in.
