The fight in the East, red hot: Orlando shines, Brooklyn and Detroit endure despite their bad spell

Then we review how the day has developed in the East, one of the most beautiful fights of the rest of the season.


CHARLOTTE HORNETS 113 - TORONTO RAPTORS 111

The Hornets are the worst team in the standings, but they cling to their remaining options in a praiseworthy manner. And repeating past successes. They beat the Raptors again and, again, with a triple from Jeremy Lamb: this time it was not from the midfield, but in the last seconds. Marc Gasol only threw two shots; Serge Ibaka, pro against, was very good with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

ORLANDO MAGIC 149 - ATLANTA HAWKS 113

Absolute exhibition offensive of the Magic, which are growing with the passage of the matches and are already in the sixth position of the Eastern Conference after having been out of the first eight for a good number of weeks. Nikola Vucevic, Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross each scored 25 points to lead their own. Trae Young finished with 22 + 7 + 6. Orlando is already in 50% balance, 40-40,

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER 123 - DETROIT PISTONS 110

Russell Westbrook was the protagonist of the night to reach the triple-double average for the third consecutive season in the NBA, but the Pistons tried it with all your forces. Blake Griffin, especially: 45 points got the power forward of the Detroit, but his effort was in vain. The set of Dwane Casey this leaves him in eighth position, skimming the stay out, with a record of 39-40,

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES 111 - MIAMI HEAT 109

The Heat have three consecutive defeats and are throwing away their chances of playing in the phase in the one that decides the title. In Minnesota also fell despite the irregular match of the rival star, Karl-Anthony Towns, who combined 13 points and 12 rebounds with 11 losses. Tampooc served the great performance of Dwyane Wade, who scored 24 points. It helps the Heat that the Pistons and the Nets, a win away, are not at their best.
