On the night of Thursday to Friday, as part of the NBA regular season, the Golden State Warriors, led by a great Stephen Curry (40 points) overthrew the Cleveland Cavaliers (89-104). For their part, the Washington Wizards, beaten by the Miami Heat (112-97), are no longer in the lead in the East.
Game of the Night: Cleveland Cavaliers v Golden State Warriors
They were, however, very badly embarked. On the night of Thursday to Friday, as part of the NBA regular season, the Golden State Warriors finally won on the floor of the Cleveland Cavaliers (89-104). During the first three quarters, the two teams took turns leading. But, at the end of the third and penultimate quarter, the Cavaliers then seemed to have made a rather large gap, with a lead of +13 (81-68). But that was without counting Golden State, particularly in form since the start of the season. And thanks to a scathing 36-8 inflicted on his opponent for one night, during the fourth and final quarter, the franchise, which has now won thirteen out of fifteen games played, has therefore turned the situation around to release a winner again, and keep his place as leader in the Western Conference standings.
MVP of the night: Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
He is definitely still in good shape. On the night of Thursday to Friday, as part of the NBA regular season, the American international leader Stephen Curry, now 33 years old and selected in ninth position in the 2009 Draft by his franchise which is still his today delivered an incredible new game. Indeed, the native of Akron in the State of Ohio in the United States finished top scorer in his franchise but also, and by far, best scorer in a new meeting, with personal statistics of 40 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists. A meeting that was therefore particularly excited during the fourth and last quarter, when, especially under his leadership, his franchise from the Golden State Warriors then overthrew the Cleveland Cavaliers, to win (89- 104).
The flop of the night: Washington Wizards
Washington has fallen again. On the night of Thursday to Friday, as part of the NBA regular season, the Wizards bowed to the floor of the Miami Heat (112-97), for a second consecutive defeat. A setback heavy with consequences, since the franchise loses, quite simply, its place of leader of the classification of the Eastern conference, to the profit besides of its executioner of one evening. Now Washington is only fourth, also overtaken by the Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls. Even if Bradley Beal held his rank (30 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists), that was not enough, especially against Jimmy Butler, who finished top scorer in his franchise but also top scorer in this meeting, with personal stats of 32 points, 3 rebounds as well as 5 assists.
Frenchman of the Night: Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz)
They were several French on the floors, on the night of Thursday to Friday, as part of the NBA regular season. But very few have really shone, from a statistical point of view. Apart from the French international pivot Rudy Gobert, now 29 years old and resident of the Utah Jazz franchise since 2013. His franchise has also followed with a second consecutive victory, still at home, but this time against the Toronto Raptors (119-103). As far as he is concerned, the native of Saint-Quentin completed a new double-double meeting and, more precisely, personal statistics of 14 points, 11 rebounds as well as 1 assist. Which made him the fourth leading scorer in his franchise, as far as this game is concerned.
