NBA: Dennis Schröder and Jayson Tatum shine in Celtics victory

by archysport

Strong Dennis Schröder and Jayson Tatum led the Celtics to another victory. While Giannis Antetokounmpo is unstoppable, the Wizards are only half a game apart from the leaders in the east after a comeback against Miami.

New York Knicks (9-7) – Houston Rockets (1-15) 106:99 (BOXSCORE)

  • At Madison Square Garden, the worst team in the league performed bravely. But that the Rockets still have a lot to learn, as Daniel Theis recently explained in the SPOX interview, was also evident in the tenth loss of the season in the tenth away game. The Texans were still ahead of the game in the middle of the fourth quarter, before too many turnovers and a hot Alec Burks turned the game over.
  • He met three of his six threes (career high) in the closing stages, added four of his five steals. After a 12-2 run, the Knicks were suddenly eight points ahead with two and a half minutes before the end and didn’t let anything burn. Before that, they had their worst first quarter of the season (13 points, 5/23 FG), so Tom Thibodeau said: “It wasn’t nice, but I liked the way the guys found a way to play the game to win.”
  • The Rockets have been waiting for a win since October 24, against the Knicks they were led by Christian Wood (18 points, 12 rebounds), and Jae’Sean Tate also had a double-double (12 and 10). Jalen Green contributed 16 points, Eric Gordon threw a lot and hit little (15, 5/17 FG). Theis also remained extremely pale (2, 1/6 FG, 5 rebounds). 22 turnovers, 8 of them late in the game, were simply too many in the end.
  • While Houston only hit 25.6 percent from a distance (10/39), the hosts did significantly better (18/41, 43.9 percent). Burks was top scorer with 20 points from the bench (6/7 3FG), Evan Fournier (19), Julius Randle (16, 4/15 FG, 10 rebounds, 9 assists), Immanuel Quickley (13) and RJ Barrett 11 scored ) binary.
