Denver Nuggets 134 – Utah Jazz 132
The Denver Nuggets clinched their third position in the West after beating the Utah Jazz in a game that went to two overtimes. The Salt Lake City franchise, for its part, still cannot find its rhythm in the Orlando bubble and have only two victories in six games. It was the first meeting in this season restart for Jamal Murray and the point guard did not disappoint: 23 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists. Nikola Jokic went up to 30 points (he scored 10 in the first overtime), 11 sacks and 7 passes to the basket. The combined strength of the two stopped Donovan Mitchell’s good day. The Jazz guard rode to 35 points with 5 triples… of 16 attempts.
Miami Heat 112 – Phoenix Suns 119
New victory for Phoenix in Florida and they already have five. Five out of five. The Suns are the only undefeated team in this resumption of the course and also the big surprise. The Arizona franchise started the bubble with the second worst record of the 22 teams present and the worst in the Western Conference. Now, he’s just two games behind eighth (Memphis Grizzlies) and halfway down ninth (Portland Trail Blazers). If he hunted the Oregonians, he would play the play-in to qualify for the final rounds, a height of the season that has not reached for a decade. Devin Booker was the leading scorer against Miami with 35 points. The guard was well supported by Jevon Carter: 20 points, 6 of 8 from the triple. Ricky Rubio reached 7 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists. In Miami, Robinson and Herro scored 25 apiece.
Portland Trail Blazers 117 – Los Angeles Clippers 122
The Clippers disrespect troubled Blazers. The Los Angeles franchise took a victory that it was noted that they did not care. Ugly gesture from Beverley and Marcus Morris when Lillard missed two free throws. Read the chronicle here.
Indiana Pacers 116 – Los Angeles Lakers 111
TJ Warren (39) gives another warning to LeBron and his Lakers. The forward ended an Los Angeles franchise that adds his fourth loss in the Orlando bubble. James reached 31 points. Read the chronicle here.
Dallas Mavericks 136 – Milwaukee Bucks 132
Doncic’s wild rhythm: 36 points, 17th triple-double. The Mavericks beat Antetokoumpo’s Bucks with a great game from the point guard, who delivered 19 assists, his NBA record. Read the chronicle here.
