Despite 25 points from Rudy Gobert and 16 points from Killian Hayes, Minnesota and Detroit lost this Wednesday in the NBA. Leaders Utah and Milwaukee won, however, while the Clippers and Brooklyn won the Los Angeles and Brooklyn derby.
After a break related to the midterms elections on Tuesday, the NBA resumed on Wednesday, with thirteen games on the schedule. Five French were on the court, and two in particular stood out, even as their team lost. Rudy Gobert, returning from the covid protocol, scored 25 points, which he had not done since last March with Utah, and grabbed 11 rebounds, in Minnesota’s loss to Phoenix (117-129). The French pivot, like Karl-Anthony Towns (11pts, 8rbds) was quickly affected by mistakes, and the Suns took advantage of it. They led the game from the eighth until the final minute, leaving Devin Booker with 32 points and 10 assists. Phoenix is second in the West. The other tricolor in form on Wednesday is called Killian Hayes, and it’s a little surprising. Author of a very slow start to the season, the fault in particular of a disastrous address, the 21-year-old French leader scored 16 points, 7 of 12 on shots, during Detroit’s loss to Boston (128 -112). Will the 7th season of the 2020 Draft launch? It requires confirmation against New York on Friday. The C’s in any case imposed themselves very easily, thanks especially to their duo Jaylen Brown (30pts, 7rbds) – Jayson Tatum (31pts, 5pds), and here they are third in the East.
Milwaukee and Utah are far ahead
Milwaukee is still at the top of the Eastern Conference, after its new victory, on the side of Oklahoma City. The Bucks, however, without their two stars Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Jrue Holiday (ankle), won after two overtimes, with a score of 132-136. In their absence, Jevon Carter took responsibility, and broke his career record (36 points, to which 12 assists must be added). Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 39 points weren’t enough for the Thunder, who lost their fourth straight game. In the West, Utah took the lead, surprising everyone, and the Jazz signed their tenth victory, on the floor of Atlanta. Lauri Markkanen (32pts, 8rbds) and Jordan Clarkson (23pts, 5pds) carried the Salt Lake City franchise, making the difference in the final quarter after trailing by ten points at the end of the third (26pts for Dejounte Murray Hawks side) .
The derby for Brooklyn and the Clippers
Finally, a New York derby and a Los Angeles derby were also on the program this Wednesday, and the logic was respected. In the Big Apple, the Brooklyn Nets easily won against the New York Knicks in a one-sided match, still without Kyrie Irving: 112-85. Kevin Durant offered a triple-double (29pts, 12rbds, 12pds) and Seth Curry added 23 points in the first game since Jacque Vaugh was formally benched. Julius Randle finished with 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Knicks, with Evan Fournier scoring 6 points in 20 minutes. In California, the Clippers won 114-101 against the Lakers, in a game in which Darvin Ham’s men led by just four points in the first quarter (though they tied it three minutes before half-time and one quarter one hour from the end) . LeBron James scored 30 points before exiting with a groin injury. Conversely, Paul George scored 29, and the Clippers now have four wins in five games, despite Paul George’s absence.
