Comeback and Curry. The two keywords of the night of the Golden State Warriors who, down -20 before the break, managed to overturn the result and give themselves a precious success 120-109 over the Pelicans. A double-digit quintet is not enough in New Orleans: 26 points for Brandon Ingram, 21 for Trey Murphy. All useless in the evening in which Steph Curry finished with 39 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists. Jordan Poole (21 points), Klay Thompson (17) and Jonathan Kuminga (13) take care of the rest. In the Western Conference Golden State climbs back to sixth place, while Oklahoma City drops to tenth. The Thunder were beaten 134-137 by the Charlotte Hornets. The scene is taken by PJ Washington who allows himself the maximum of 43 points in his career with 16/23 from the field and 5/9 from three. Josh Giddey nearly triple double finishing with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists, but that’s not enough in Oklahoma. Defeat for the Boston Celtics who lose to the Washington Wizards 130-111. Jayson Tatum scores 28 points, Jaylen Brown adds 18, but the smiles in the end are Porzingis (32 points and 13 assists) and his companions. Nothing to do for Paolo Banchero’s Magic. The Italian-American scores 24 points, enhanced by 11 rebounds and 5 assists. But at the FedEx Forum it is the Memphis Grizzlies who win.
