Podcast #65: Tatum and Boston rock the NBA

– The poster between Boston and Dallas has become a rivalry between Jayson Tatum and Luka Doncic. If the Slovenian finished with a bigger line of stats (42 points, 9 assists, 8 rebounds), Tatum was the winner to solidify the top position of the Celtics overall.

Boston dominated the game and had a lead of up to 27 points in the 3rd quarter, before the Mavs gradually closed the gap thanks to Luka. If necessary, Jayson Tatum (37 pts, 13 rbds) recalled that he was more than ever in the discussion for MVP, helped by Jaylen Brown (31 pts).

After a small setback against Chicago the other day, the Celtics seem to be headed for a new streak.

– The night was absolutely perfect for the Celtics, who saw Milwaukee, their chaser, lose at home against the Bulls at the same time. Chicago looks better and has just beaten two Eastern favorites in quick succession. To do this, it took a great DeMar DeRozan (36 pts, 8 wt) and a great exploitation of the Bucks’ 20 ball loss. Giannis Antetokounmpo Although they finished with 36 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists, Billy Donovan’s men won this little derby between neighbors.

– Still without its stars, Philadelphia falls to Charlotte. If against Brooklyn the lieutenants continue, the task will be difficult to repeat for the Sixers, burdened by the efforts of terry rosier (9 of his 22 points in the last 5 minutes) on the money. The Hornets won for just the second time in their last 13 games.

– The calendar is favorable to Wolves and they are taking advantage of it. Minnesota picked up its fifth straight win with a floor win over the Pacers. We stayed in a match with 0 shots attempted Rudy Gobert and that obviously pissed him off a little. The Frenchman put up 21 points and 16 rebounds, to accompany the rise of Karl-Anthony Towns in the meeting (23 pts, 11 rebounds, 8 wt). For once, the Wolves shared the duties very well on offense: KAT, Rudy, McDaniels, Russell and Edwards all took 10 and 14 shots apiece. As for the Pacers, who let go in the third quarter, Tyrese Haliburton signed his traditional double-double (10 pts, 14 wt, but on 4/15), while Myles Turner scored 31 points.

– Four in a row for the Cavs! Cleveland certainly got over the bad patch of the last few weeks to sign a 4th consecutive victory, this time at home against Portland. JB Bickerstaff’s players limited the Blazers to under 100 points, while enjoying an attack with Donovan Mitchell (34 pts), Jarrett Allen (who signed his season record with 24 pts), Darius Garland (24 pts , 12 pds) and Evan Mobley (10 pts, 12 rebounds).

The Cavs have, at this time, the third best record in the NBA.

– Atlanta ended the Kings’ 7-game winning streak tonight. Thanks especially to Trae Young (35 pts) and their general aggressiveness, the Hawks limited the most attacks in the league to 106 points.

– The elimination of the Thunder is a tanned this season in the NBA. The Nuggets see it, they have to go through the extension and rely a little more on the stratospheric level of Nikola Jokic (39 pts, 10 rebounds, 9 wt). In the absence of Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr, Aaron Gordon (30 pts) and Bruce Brown, who signed the first triple-double of his career (17 pts, 13 rbds, 10 pds) supported the double MVP.

The Nuggets were still scared, they led by 17 points in the second half before going under the stabs of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (31 pts, 11 wt) and Isiah Joe, who hit 7 baskets 3 points to close the gap and go to extra time.

– After four straight losses, Miami is pretty much head above water. Still without Jimmy Butler, the Heat prevailed against the Wizards, not squandering a 21-point lead in the second half. Fortunately for the Floridians, Tyler Herro (17 pts) was particularly sharp at the end of the match with 4 baskets from 3 points that allowed his team to regain the lead.

– The Nets started again tonight with a win in Toronto. However, Kevin Durant did not have a great night and finished with 12 small points on the counter. It was a night when Kyrie Irving chose to take over the offense and his 29 points (19 in the 3rd quarter alone) were important, as well as Royce O’Neale’s 15 points (who had never made 5 outside baskets. in the NBA) and 14 points by Ben Simmons.

Despite this small scoring night, KD became the 18th leading scorer in NBA history, ahead of Kevin Garnett.

– It’s “only” San Antonio, coasting and now has 6 losses in a row, opposite but Zion Williamson and the Pelicans dominated their subject from A to Z tonight. Zion mercilessly rolled over the Texas defense and matched his season-best mark in scoring (32 points) while also grabbing 11 rebounds in passing. NOLA has always topped the scoreboard and can now boast the second-best record in the West tied with the Nuggets.

– If NOLA moves up the ladder, it’s also because Utah didn’t win at home against Detroit. The Jazz weren’t too wary of the Pistons, who had already surprised Denver. As a symbol, former Utah player Bojan Bogdanovic (23 pts) hurt his former team the most, but like the last game, he received support from Kevin Knox ( 21 pts with 6 outside baskets), Alec Burks (18 pts) and Marvin Bagley (19 pts on 9/10).

Killian Hayes started but was not very convincing (2 points and 3 assists on 1/5). Dwane Casey capped it at 17 minutes.

– The Warriors are almost back on balance after their home victory over the Clippers. At one point, Andrew Wiggins was Golden State’s sharpest and most productive, with 31 points and two consecutive 3-point baskets that nearly sealed the deal in the 3rd quarter. Stephen Curry (22 pts) and Klay Thompson (18 pts) brought 40 points in two after one game of rest.
