Pöltl shines with double-double against jazz

by archysport

With a 104: 110 against Utah Jazz on Monday (local time) the series of the San Antonio Spurs of the last three victories in a row in the NBA came to an end.

Jakob Pöltl recorded a double-double for the ninth time in the season with ten points and 13 rebounds. In addition, the center marked five assists and one steal in 27:15 minutes on the floor. “We weren’t aggressive enough,” said the domestic NBA pioneer after Utah retaliated for the 126: 128 ten days ago in Salt Lake City. The preliminary decision on Monday was made in the second quarter, when the guests pulled away after 35:39 through Pöltl with an 11-0 run. San Antonio went without a point for more than four and a half minutes. In the final section, the third placed in the Western Conference pulled away to 90:72 before the Spurs managed to make cosmetic results in the finish. Derrick White scored 21 points for the Texans, who with Dejounte Murray (Corona protocol) had to do without a top performer as did Utah with the injured Donovan Mitchell. The Texans will face Miami Heat on Wednesday.

Analogous to the US health authority, which shortened the recommended isolation period after a corona infection from ten to five days, the NBA, which has been hit by numerous corona cases, is now proceeding. Vaccinated players and coaches are now allowed to leave quarantine six days after a positive test if they are no longer infectious, ESPN reported on Monday. Accordingly, this procedure applies if a PCR test with a CT value above 30 is available.

The Phoenix Suns suffered their second defeat in a row with 113: 114 against the Memphis Grizzlies. Ja Morant scored the game-winning basket against the team with the second-best record in the league in the final second. The Guard was also the top scorer of the game with 33 points. James Harden led the Brooklyn Nets, leaders of the Eastern Conference, with 39 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds to a 124-108 at the LA Clippers.
