The Boston basketball players beat the Washington team last night on their court 130:121, and the triumphs in the NBA league were recorded among others by Milwaukee and Miami. Jaylen Brown led Boston to its 16th victory since the beginning of the season, without the injured Jason Tatum, with 36 points, Malcolm Brogdon added 17, and Derrick White added 15 points.
In the defeated team, Bradley Beal was the best with 30 points, while Kristaps Porzingis scored 21. Milwaukee beat the Dallas team 124:115 at home and thus continued the "chase" after Boston, registering 14 points in the season.
The most effective in the winning team was Giannis Antetokounmpo with 30 points, along with 11 rebounds, and Grayson Allen added 22 points. In the ranks of Dallas, which experienced its fourth defeat in a row, Luka Doncic was the best again, finishing the match with 27 points, 12 rebounds, and five assists.
In terms of handling the ball, Luka can definitely do more than Antetokounmpo, but Giannis is miles ahead of Luka, when it comes to being able to impact the game from a defensive standpoint. In addition to being one of the best defensive players in the world, Giannis is a devastating force around the rim.
Given Luka's offensive ability, it is quite likely that he will pass Giannis sooner rather than later. However, for now, Giannis continues to lead. Miami won away from home against Atalanta with 106:98 and thus ended a streak of seven games without a win on the side.
The most deserving of Miami's victory was Bam Adebayo with 32 points, 14 of which he scored in the third quarter, while Tyler Hiro scored 11 points with 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Serbian basketball player Nikola JoviÄ did not play.
In the Atlanta team, for which the injured Bogdan Bogdanovic is still not playing, John Collins was the best with 23 points. The Los Angeles Clippers beat Indiana 114:100 on their home field, and Ivica Zubac was the most responsible for that, scoring 31 points and recording a record 29 rebounds, while Cleveland beat Detroit 102:94.
Memphis beat New York away 127:123, Philadelphia was convincing against Orlando away winning 133:103, while earlier last night Brooklyn beat Portland (111:97) and Golden State beat Minnesota (137:114).
