Los Angeles Lakers suffered this Thursday their third loss in a row losing to a Milwaukee Bucks launched with nine straight wins while the Denver Nuggets, leaders of the West, fell to an Orlando Magic who specialized in scaring the best teams in the league.
LAKERS 106 – BUCKS 115
Giannis Antetokounmpo (38 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists) imposed his law on some Lakers who await like rain in May the contribution of their new signings yet to debut (D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, Jarred Vanderbilt, Mo Bamba and Davon Reed ).
Anthony Davis (23 points and 16 rebounds) and Dennis Schroder (25 points and 12 assists) were the most productive in the attack for those in purple and gold.
LeBron James, who sat out with an ankle injury, was honored before the game for becoming the leading scorer in NBA history.
MAGIC 115 – NUGGETS 104
Despite the great performance of Aaron Gordon (37 points and 13 rebounds against his former team) and Nikola Jokic (29 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists), the Denver Nuggets left Orlando with a loss under their belt.
Seven Magic players topped 10 points with Wendell Carter Jr. (19 points and 6 rebounds) leading scorer.
NETS 116 – BULLS 105
Spencer Dinwiddie (25 points and 6 assists) made his Brooklyn debut giving good feelings and the Nets won their first game without Kevin Durant in their ranks.
In the Bulls, strangely passive in the transfer market and whose project threatens to stay in no man’s land, Zach LaVine shone with 38 points.
HAWKS 116 – SUNS 107
While waiting for Durant to make his debut with the Suns (he is still injured), the Atlanta Hawks defeated Phoenix with a recital by Trae Young (36 points, 7 rebounds and 12 assists).
Josh Okogie (25 points) led the attack of some Suns in which Devin Booker did not play.
