Podcast #71: Donovan Mitchell, Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic are unreal!

– The Lakers seem determined to continue their rise in the standings. Tonight’s fifth straight win in Sacramento goes in that direction. In this ultra-intense game, it was completed in two cold-blooded shots Dennis Schroeder (27 points), Los Angeles was clearly confident LeBron JamesHe continues to be a hit, fast approaching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record.

LeBron scored 37 points on 14/28 with 8 rebounds and 7 assists. It also resulted in his 6th foul and ejection Domantas Sabonis in the final minute of the game, for a 2+1 move that earned the Purple and Gold a point. When The King said he didn’t want to end his career with mediocre seasons, he wasn’t kidding.

The Lakers are not too far off the mark with a small delay in the top 6 and their neighbors the Clippers. The only concern is that there is a huge traffic jam between the 6th and 12th places. Angelenos are not out of the woods, but the hope of turning the corner is real.

record your contribution Thomas Bryant (29 points, 14 rebounds) LA side and good matchup De’Aaron Fox (34 points, 9 weights) Sacto side.

– Boston struggled to pull away from San Antonio, but pulled through in time for its 6th win in 8 games. The team with the best record in the NBA was confident Jason Tatum (34 points), his shot with 33 seconds left gave the Celtics the lead for good. Spurs fought bravely in front of the home crowd with a balanced collective performance and 8 players scoring at least 10 points.

Joe Mazzulla’s players also made a difference off their bench. Malcolm Brogdon (23 points) and Robert Williams III (10 pts, 11 rbds, 4 blks) are clearly luxury replacements.

– The Warriors have gotten away with their impressive home record so far. If they start losing a lot of matches at home, the situation could quickly become complicated. Golden State lost in public for the second time in a row tonight against Orlando. Needless to say, apart from Stephen Curry, whose comeback was nearing, Klay Thompson wasn’t there to let him breathe. Even with the return of Andrew Wiggins, the Californians lacked vitality. We should all emphasize the record in the NBAAnthony Lambscored 26 points with 5 3-pointers off the bench.

The Magic took advantage of this with their young and strong tandem. Paolo Banchero (25 points) and Franz Wagner (24 points) did the job offensively, Markelle Fultz (16 pts, 7 pds, 6 rbds) is busy trying things out. Orlando continues to be a bit torn between two goals: just three wins a game ahead, and the Wembanyama Race, where the Floridians are still well behind at four teams.

– Bulls refuse orders to blow everything up to start tanking. Chicago won its third straight at home against the Jazz. Another positive sign is the performance of the duo DeMar DeRozan Zach LaVine. The former, with 35 points and 7 assists, moved ahead of Pau Gasol and Bob Pettit for 40th place in the NBA’s all-time scoring list. The latter scored 36 points and had a decisive 4th quarter with three consecutive game-winning shots to match the 11 he had in the previous game against Philadelphia.

Against his former team Lauri Markkanen Scored 28 points on 12/20. Note the good contribution of the newbie Ochai Agbaci (19 points 7/7 off the bench), came from Cleveland in the Donovan Mitchell trade.

Luka Doncic Nikola Jokic topped the triple-double chart with his 9th TD this season. Dallas should be able to fend off the Pelicans, who are still without Zion Williamson, CJ McCollum and Brandon Ingram. With 34 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, the Slovenian led the Mavs (8th in 10 games) to solidify their 4th place in the West. Christian Wood (28 points in 24 minutes) supported Doncic well

jade resistantDeserving of more playing time after Kemba Walker’s departure, he again proved worthy of Jason Kidd’s trust with 15 points off the bench. Frank Ntilikina played 11 minutes off the bench and still had no offensive success. It’s his third consecutive shutout (0/7 overall), but the Frenchman remains in Kidd’s rotation, who is largely concerned with his defensive contribution.
