Stratospheric for his return from suspension, LeBron James allowed the Lakers to resume success on Wednesday night after extra time against Indiana. Still unstoppable, Phoenix has chained a fourteenth consecutive victory, on the floor of Cleveland. Golden State and Minnesota continue their good streak as well.
Shattering return for the “King”! Absent in the Knicks’ loss at Madison Square Garden the day before, LeBron James signed a devastating comebackWednesday night on the Indiana floor. Author of a monstrous match (39 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists), the great absentee in recent weeks on the side of the champions in the Orlando bubble allowed his team to resume success against the Pacers (124- 116), and this in the absence of Anthony Davis, flu, and while Diamantas Sabonis (14 points, 12 rebounds) and his team had led practically the entire meeting before being overturned in overtime by the Californians and a James particularly disgusting in this period of additional play that the quadruple MVP ended at the position of… pivot. The Lakers are smiling again, Phoenix, he remains firmly installed on his cloud, with a fourteenth success in a row Wednesday for the best team of the moment, victorious this time on the floor of Cleveland (120-115), where Devin Booker, chief steamroller of the Suns, made one of his best copies of the season, with 35 points. Chris Paul, in another register (17 points, 12 assists), has also contributed greatly to this impressive run of the Arizona men to continue as a trip to Madison Square Garden for the Golden dolphin now looms. State in the West.
Golden State and Minnesota follow suit, Utah reacts
The Warriors thus retain control of the conference after their success at home (116-96) against Philadelphia for the reunion between the two brothers Curry Stephen (25 points, 10 assists) and Seth (24 points). Minnesota also continues. The Wolves, who have not lost in five games, added Miami (113-101) to their current hunting roster on Wednesday. The MVP of the evening Anthony Edwards panicked the counters, with 33 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals to allow his team, badly embarked at the break, to completely reverse the situation in the second half. Defeated by a point at home against Memphis two days earlier, Utah reacted immediately, moving on the floor of OKC (victory 110-104). The Jazz, despite a shy Donovan Mitchell (13 points, 5 assists to 6 of 16 on shots) again, was able to rely on Rudy Gobert, author of a new double-double (15 points, 17 rebounds), and on a very good Jordan Clarkson off the bench (20 points) to overcome Luguentz Dort (27 points) and the Thunder. The best team of last year in the regular season thus sets the record straight before hosting the Pelicans.
