Podcast #63: Gobert-Mitchell, cross the fates of the Cavs and the Wolves

Tired, Luka? Hmm…

Luka Doncic tongue stuck out a bit for two games and seems to need a rest. Instead of cracking, the Slovenian preferred to put up a huge fight to get the Mavs back on track. Doncic was impressive in allowing Dallas to dominate Portland, recording his third triple-double of the season without passing: 42 bridges, 13 rebounds and 10 assists on 13/22, with a sunny stay at the line (15/ 18).

The Blazers may have tried to lock Doncic, especially in the 4th quarter when they started with a 3-point lead on the scoreboard, the aspiring MVP found a way to score, but and more importantly to get others involved, especially who is his best lieutenant of the moment: Spencer Dinwiddie.

Dinwiddie had a great start to the season and returned the cover with a 3-point recital (6/8) to rack up 20 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. His three 3-point baskets in the money time made it possible to fold the match. The contribution of Christian Wood (19 pts off the bench), absent in the last two NBA games, was also important.

It is necessary to fight the trio of Portland, within which Jeremy Grant again sent heavy (37 pts). Damian Lillard Not well set sights at the address level (6/16), but his aggressiveness allowed him to live through throws (15/17) and bring 29 points and 12 assists, as in addition to 24 points from his backcourt partner Anfernee Simons.

The Nets are doing well and it’s all funny

– The Nets are getting close to breaking even in the NBA. As if by magic, the assignment of Jacque Vaughn and the suspension of Kyrie Irving gave real momentum to Brooklyn, which was confirmed by the victory on the floor of the Clippers on Saturday night. Kevin Durant (27 pts) and his teammates are on a streak of 4 victories in 5 matches and won the last one thanks to a great 4th quarter in LA

The Clippers led by two points with less than 8 minutes remaining when the Nets went on a charge and went on a rampant 20-2 (!) run orchestrated by Seth Curry (22 pts), Nic Claxton (13 pts, 14 rebounds) and Royce O’Nealewhich unloaded a bit on KD.

Nicholas Batum played 18 minutes off the bench for the Clippers, not scoring (0/5), but bringing in 6 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 assist.

Embiid and Tatum were a hit, Killian Hayes liked

– A few days after losing in Atlanta, the Sixers got revenge. Now that they seem accustomed to playing without James Harden, Doc Rivers’ men are once again leaning on the broad shoulders of Joel Embiid. Wasn’t it costly for him at the end of the season? Meanwhile, when he is forced to bare his fangs, the Cameroonian is unmanageable for an opposing defence. Embiid put up 42 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists, his biggest total of the season, to martyr the Hawks, who were very clumsy on three-pointers and borrowed from the defense.

Of course, when Tyrese Maxey find the address (10/18) and the ability to pass assists (9), the deal is very different for the Sixers.

Jayson Tatum really making a sparkling start to the season, without drawing all the spotlight on him. The Celtics were a little sluggish in Detroit, but they still came away with a win. Tatum just had his best scoring game of the season (43 pts), adding 10 rebounds to the equation with support from Grant Williams (19 pts, 10 rebounds) and Marcus Smart (18 pts, 10 pds ) in his absence. by Jaylen Brown.

On the other side, Cade Cunningham was injured and Killian Hayes took the opportunity to show himself rather to his advantage. The Frenchman played 35 minutes and had 15 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds on 6/14, a far cry from his offensive galleys in recent weeks. He’s only had three games of 10 or more points, which is a good start to chasing the label of unproductive NBA player at the end of which his other attributes have been difficult to shake off the minds of skeptics.

But also…

– We didn’t think we’d say that at the beginning of the season, but every Jazz loss at this point is almost a surprise. Utah, the leader of the Western Conference, fell to Washington. The Wizards, playing without Bradley Beal for the fourth straight time, pulled off a somewhat impressive third straight victory given the absence of their franchise player and the quality of the opposition.

We don’t want to look at him, though Kristaps Porzingis made a pretty good start to the season, like his double-double of the day (31 pts, 10 rebounds), supported by Kyle Kuzma (23 pts, 8 rebounds) and Corey Kispert, who didn’t miss a single shot (18 pts in 6/6).

– The Raptors experienced a nasty air pocket in the 4th quarter of their trip to Indianapolis. The Pacers went 36-14 on their visitors who are counting on their two most likely players to be traded in the coming weeks, Buddy Hield (22 pts) and Myles Turner (19 pts, 10 rebounds), but also in ability Tyrese Haliburton affected the match even though he was next to the plate in terms of the address (3/14). The Indiana point guard dished out 15 assists to his teammates and orchestrated his team’s big run late in the game.

โ€“ It’s not necessarily this victory at home against Houston that will energize the Pelicans. New Orleans logically won, but got too scared considering the opponent. While leading by 18 points in the 3rd quarter, Willie Green’s men were scuttled and found themselves down -8 in the 4th. Fortunately, the money time was better managed by the Pels, especially by Brandon Ingram and Josรฉ Alvarado, who orchestrated a 13-0 for their team in the last 2 minutes of the match.

However, Houston still had to manage Alperen Sengun’s difficult fight, unable to avoid mistakes and sent off after playing just 19 minutes. Jalen Green (33 pts on 11/20), Kevin Porter Jr. (23 pts) and Jabari Smith (9 pts, 15 rbds, 2 blks) caused problems for Zion Williamson (26 pts and 8/9) and his companions.

– And 8… The Hornets do not stop losing and will soon decide to participate in the Wembanyama Race in the NBA. The return of LaMelo Ball, who played their first game of the season last night, were unable to prevent Charlotte from being soundly defeated by Miami. After losing in overtime earlier in the week against the same team, Steve Clifford’s players had no fight for it.

The Heat, who have so far struggled to win by a comfortable margin – and even win at all – walked under fireworks of Max Struss (31 pts on 8/14 on 3 pts), while LaMelo (15 pts, 6 rebounds, 6 wt) tried to find a rhythm up front.
