– Coincidentally, on the day we do the Celtics podcast, their 9-game winning streak ends. It was Chicago that forced Boston to bite the dust without really rocking and taking control of the match, even though they were in crisis. DeMar DeRozan (28 points) and Zach LaVine The main scorers of the Bulls (22 points) were the remaining 5 defeats in 6 matches. Jason Tatum (28 points) and his teammates, for once, lacked a bit of combativeness and resigned rather quickly.

– Milwaukee suddenly took advantage of the opportunity to close. The Bucks destroyed the Blazers in the second half thanks to a more sustained effort and aliens. Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak scored 37 points and 6 assists on 35 minutes and 16/23, with the families “small” banner Yusuf Nurkic to his credit for not spoiling anything.

The Bucks were again effective, especially on defense Brook Lopez, the author of 5 blocks. Portland had to play without Damian Lillard, who is back with a calf injury, and he will have to wait another week or two to work out his issues.

– If the Cavs did not play in the NBA playoffs last year, it was because of the Hawks. The two teams met for the first time since the 2022 game, and Cleveland was able to get revenge. JB Bickerstaff’s men regained their momentum from the start of the season with a home win. Donovan Mitchell (29 pts, 9 rpg) was not in Ohio last season, but that didn’t stop him from being the leading force for the Cavs. Darius Garland (26 points), especially in the 4th quarter when Cleveland extended the lead.

The Cavs are 3rd in the East and are on a 3-game winning streak after losing 5 straight. That’s good news on a mental level for this team that dreams of being the underdog behind the conference’s two leaders.

– Another classic work night Tyrese Haliburton, the NBA’s best passer, quietly guided the Pacers to victory at home against Orlando with a double-double (18 points, 14 wt). It’s the 5th straight win for Indiana, who continues to exceed expectations with exciting play and great promise, whether or not the front office decides to cut it short with plenty of trades in the offseason. . Pacers are 4th in the East!

– According to the form, “Wolves” appear in the radius of the teams. The game was practiced and the chemistry still didn’t seem optimal, but Minnesota still won for the fourth time against Miami. Trailing by 13 points at halftime, Rudy Gobert and his teammates got a huff from Chris Finch and woke up spectacularly after the break.

Carl Anthony Towns (25 points), Anthony Edwards (22 points) and Jaden McDaniels (22 points) was the most productive, while Rudy did not take any shots and focused on defense (9 rebounds and 2 blocks).

The Heat continue to struggle without Jimmy Butler and are now on a 4-game losing streak.

– Steve Kerr suspected he had little chance of seeing his team win by moving to New Orleans without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins. It was confirmed quickly enough… the Pelicans torpedoed the Warriors… 45 point lead. The youth of Golden State took the broth to the face Brandon Ingram (34 points, his highest total this season), Zion Williamson (they came back after three games) and their companions.

NOLA is fifth in the West, but still has room for improvement, which is pretty encouraging. The Warriors are still stuck in 11th place with a negative record (8-10).

– The Knicks – and their fans in particular – were still dealing with the offense they received from the Thunder at Madison Square Garden just a few days ago. New York was held to 145 points in 4 quarters this time and OKC showed more toughness and desire on the floor.

Jalen BrunsonHe won’t be able to break Courtney Lee’s streak record because of his miss last night, with RJ Barrett hitting the Knicks scoring record (34 points). Julius Randle (25 points each).

Evan Fournier wasn’t asked again, but this time he was at least accompanied by Svi Mykhailiuk and Ryan Arcidiacono.

– Without Paul George, but with one Kawhi Leonard The minutes-limited Clippers earned a home win against West-leading Utah. In a game of wasted runs and leads, the Californians relied Norman Powell (30 points), Reggie Jackson (27 points) and a fiery 4th quarter (33-21) to tilt the Jazz.

Nikolas Batum collected 7 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 balls in 25 minutes off the bench.
