For the reunion between LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart, a week after the heated altercation between the two men, the Lakers again won at Staples Center at the expense of Detroit. They thus return to equilibrium. The series also continues for Golden State, still a strong leader in the West, and Milwaukee, which lined up a seventh straight victory by defeating Indiana.
There was no second round. A week after the heated altercation between LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart, furious at having received the elbow (unwilling to hurt from the “King”?) Of the Lakers superstar in the face to the point of trying four times to try to do battle with his opponent, but without succeeding, the two men had a new meeting on Sunday evening on the floor of the Staples Center. A reunion expected but smooth this time. On the other hand, like seven days earlier, it was again James and his teammates, very close to being knocked down at the end of the match after having nevertheless counted twenty points in advance, who took the upper hand (110-106) on the Pistons and Stewart, booed as expected by the Californian public every time he found himself with the ball in his hands. A victory that allows the Lakers and their “Big Three”, never so much in tune as Sunday night (33 points, 9 assists for James, 25 points, 9 assists for Westbrook and 24 points and 10 rebounds for Davis) to return to the ‘balance (11 wins – 11 losses).
Unstoppable Golden State and Milwaukee!
For Golden State, still a solid leader in the Western Conference, the good streak continues. Two days after having lined up a tenth home win in a row, the Warriors chained a seventh success, Sunday at the expense of the Clippers (105-90) on the floor of Paul George (30 points) and his family but without Nicolas Batum, still in isolation. Stephen Curry, the strong man of the franchise from San Francisco, was once again the great architect of this new victory for his team (the 18th), with 33 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, 6 steals and a small three-point festival. again (7 of 13). Seventh consecutive victory also for another of the Milwaukee league’s in-form teams. Carried by their leader Giannis Antetokounmpo (26 points, 13 rebounds), the Bucks, fifth in the East, won (118-100) among Pacers abandoned by their two usual locomotives Diamantas Sabonis and Myles Turner (only 6 points to those two). Not scheduled before Wednesday (against Charlotte), the reigning champions will also be able to recharge the batteries. Not necessarily good news for his opponents.
