NBA highlights and results: today’s games, March 8

DENVER NUGGETS 131 – GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 124

The Warriors gave up this postponed game, which should have been played in December, before starting. Kerr announced two days earlier that he would rest Curry, Thompson and Wiggins, his three most deadly players on offense. The team is also without Iguodala and Payton due to injury. The only good news is that another of the sections, Draymond Green, has announced his return date: March 14. That’s where the Warriors will have to go with what they have, which these days is little. In Denver they battled but could not with the local team. Jokic, with 32+15+13 and the cape of MVP on, led Malone’s men, who are close to fifth place in the West. Poole (32) and Moody (30) were the best visitors.

PHILADELPHIA SIXERS 121 – CHICAGO BULLS 106

Huge role for Embiid, who went up to 42 points. The African center absorbed many plays in attack and finished them in good form. In the process they give a blow to the Bulls, who not only have five straight losses but are unable to win any game against teams that are in the top three. Identity crisis for Chicagoans.

DETROIT PISTONS 113 – ATLANTA HAWKS 110

Horror for Atlanta, which also loses to Detroit. It took an extension, but it was. In overtime there was a chance for the Hawks to tie it back up in the closing seconds, but Young and Hunter missed their 3-pointers. Cunningham (28+10) finished entirely with a very weak Trae (5/20).

MIAMI HEAT 123 – HOUSTON ROCKETS 106

Huge match for Tyler Herro, with 31 goals, one more day coming out as a substitute. Butler and Adebayo were also good. Lowry’s hand is noticeable although this Monday he did not have a successful day.

SACRAMENTO KINGS 115 – NEW YORK KNICKS 131

Randle (46), with eight triples, was the spearhead of the Knicks in Sacramento. Those of The Big Apple cling to life against one of the teams that, one more year, look worse.

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES 124 – PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS 81

Towns (27), with the help of his teammates, was one of the architects of the Wolves’ clear victory at home against the Blazers, who are losing options to fight for the title.

SAN ANTONIO SPURS 117 – LOS ANGELES LAKERS 110

The coach equals the best winning record in NBA history in the regular phase and the Spurs achieve a truly crucial victory. Read the chronicle.

DALLAS MAVERICKS 111 – UTAH JAZZ 103

Doncic, at the excellent level of recent games, led the Mavericks to win again against a possible rival when April arrives. Read the chronicle.
