The Spurs take a break and Giannis equals Moses Malone

The Raptors left nothing triple-double Trae, the Jazz ended without Gobert with the streak of the Pelicans and Sabonis led the Pacers.


Good match between two teams that were in the playoffs last season and that they should repeat in the East in 2020, safer in principle the presence of some Pacers who won a hurry against a rival without Vucevic and who loosened a Little his usual defensive pincer. The Holiday brothers were decisive. With 106-106, Justin attended for Aaron's triple, and then the first one closed the game with two free throws for 12 points and 6 assists for his younger brother's 13 + 4. Domantas Sabonis was the best (25 + 9 + 4) of some Pacers who also had 27 points combined by McDermott and Lamb against Magic led by Fournier (26 points) and Isaac (25 and 9 rebounds). Fultz finished with 13 and 9 assists.


As eaten by the casualties, the Hawks continue to accumulate defeat despite the great sensations of the rookie De'Andre Hunter (this time 26 points with 6 triples and 4 assists) and the games of Trae Young, who signed the second triple-double of his career (30 + 10 + 10) and scored two triples from ten meters but did not save his team against the champion (116-119), Raptors who got serious in the second half (61-52 to the rest) of the hand of, once again, VanVleet (25 points, 9 assists) and a Siakam (34 and 4 rebounds) that has already surpassed this season the 30 points in six occasions by the five in which it did it in all the past In addition, Powell scored 20 points and Boucher, 13. Marc Gasol stayed in 3 with 7 rebounds and 3 assists and the Raptors are 11-4, in the head lot of an East in which they only have the Bucks ahead and they share balance with Celtics and Heat with a minimal advantage over the Sixers. A good picture of how things have gone so far in that Conference.


Without much history, the Bucks (13-3) retained the best mark of that East in which the Pistons are for now a firecracker (5-11), without Reggie Jackson and again without a Blake Griffin who has only been able to play four games at this start of the season in which Giannis Antetokounmpo (28 points, 10 rebounds), has become the first player to start with 16 double-doubles in a row since Moses Malone in 1981. Two George's three-pointers. Hill sealed a 12-0 to open the last quarter and put a distance (89-69) that obviously was too much for us Pistons who only threw ten times from the personnel line (6/20) and stayed in a 10 / 35 in triples. They paint badly.


Nothing better to park a crisis than to play against the Knicks. The Spurs, who already beat those of Fizdale in the first game of the course, left behind their eight straight defeats, the worst streak of the Popovich era, with a win at Madison in a duel they dominated from the beginning and in which They got 28 points ahead. Between LaMarcus Aldridge (23 points, 6 rebounds), DeMar DeRozan (21 + 9) and Patty Mills (17) secured the victory against Knicks against those who give roughly equal how bad your defense is. Marcus Morris, who went to New York after committing to the Spurs in summer, added 20 points and 7 rebounds, RJ Barrett finished with 13 and 4 assists, and Ntilikina with a solid 9 + 9 + 6. The Knicks are 4-12 and the Spurs, who are not going to breastfeed for a victory, 6-11.


After three victories in a row, the Pelicans visited some Jazz who stayed at the last minute without Rudy Gobert, down for ankle problems. It opened a promising picture that the Jazz erased at a stroke with an offensive recital, not just their forte at this start of the course: 74-54 at rest after putting 28-9 in a handful of minutes. Donovan Mitchell (37 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists) and Bojan Bogdanovic (28 + 5 + 5) led the charge with a good contribution of Jeff Green (15 + 4) and a Tony Bradley (14 + 9) who stepped into front to compensate for the absence of Gobert. The Pelicans reacted in the second half and were close to some Jazz who, however, avoided major scares. Brandon Ingram finished with 33 points and 5 assists, Redick added 20 points and Jrue Holiday 28 for a team that has improved dramatically since the beginning of the season but still awaits the advent of Zion Williamson.
