After nine wins, Franz and Moritz Wagner suffered another defeat in the NBA. Daniel Theis achieves a quick revenge.

The impressive winning streak of the Orlando Magic with the two brothers Franz and Moritz Wagner in the NBA is broken. The national basketball players, who had previously celebrated nine wins in a row with their team, lost significantly to the Brooklyn Nets with 101:129. Franz Wagner (20 points) was, together with Cole Anthony, his team’s top scorer. Brother Moritz had 18 points.

With the still strong record of 14 wins and only six defeats, Orlando is still clearly on course for the playoffs. In the Eastern Conference, the team from Florida is second behind the Boston Celtics.

Meanwhile, Daniel Theis and the Los Angeles Clippers achieved revenge against the Golden State Warriors. Two days after the 114:120 defeat in California, the Clippers narrowly won the quick reunion in their own hall with 113:112. But the Clippers also had a bit of luck: With the clock running out, Draymond Green missed a three-point throw for the Warriors for a possible victory. Theis scored twelve points coming off the bench.

Mavericks with a new record

Without Maximilian Kleber, who still had a toe injury, the Dallas Mavericks suffered a bitter home defeat. The Texans lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 120-126. Dallas carelessly gave up a historic comeback. In the final quarter, the Mavericks turned an 87:111 deficit into a temporary six-point lead with a 30-0 run, but were unable to hold on.

As the NBA announced, the Mavericks set a record with 30 points in a row. The previous record was held by the Cleveland Cavaliers with 29 points without interruption against the Milwaukee Bucks in December 2009. “If you look at the character of the team, it was there to see,” said Dallas coach Jason Kidd.

Superstar Luka Doncic in particular delivered a strong performance with 36 points and 18 assists.
