Raptors 110 - Sixers 10

Fourth consecutive victory for an increasingly serious Toronto Raptors. In this section they have beaten the Bucks twice and last night they did it with the leaders of the Eastern conference, the Philadelphia 76ers. And, also, getting Joel Embiid not to shine. The Cameroonian, a clear candidate for the MVP, stayed at 25 points and, above all, at 6/20 in field goals. The Sixers' leading scorer was Ben Simmons, with 28 points on just 11 pitches. However, the locals won the second half of the game by a practice of 58-48, leaving their rival at 19 points in the fourth quarter.

VanVleet also had one of those meetings where he becomes a nightmare for the opponent (23 points, 9 assists, 5 triples). The Raptors won without Kyle Lowry.

Hawks 123 - Nuggets 115

In their fourth game in six days, the Denver Nuggets fell again for the third time, on a road trip that is taking them very long. Luckily for them they have already finished it, because what they have shown tonight in Atlanta is to be tired. The second half, and despite the final arreón to make up the result, was the demonstration that they needed a break. Something that already began to show in the second quarter, which they lost 37-23. Before, in the first, they had hit 72.2% of the shots ... But only six were up on the scoreboard. Defense, once again, was the Achilles heel of a team that this season has a 1-10 record when conceding at least 119 points. Clint Capela, the league's top rebounder, worked hard to stop Nikola Jokic (15 points), who between misses (5/15 shooting) and fouls (5 committed) had a day to forget. But it was Trae Young who shone above the rest for the Hawks, with 35 points and 15 assists. It is his fifth meeting with these numbers, equaled Luka Doncic as the second with the most games before he turned 23. Above is Oscar Robertson with eight. Facundo Campazzo made good use of the minutes he had on the court (27), although many of them already went with the game seen for sentence. The Argentine finished with 16 goals, the second highest scorer for his team behind Jamal Murray (30), with 47 / in triples and 4/4 in free throws.

Bucks 128 - Kings 115

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton settle the recovery of a team that had lost five straight games before winning the last one against the Thunder. This time they beat the Kings without too much trouble and with 70 points, 26 rebounds and 10 assists from their all-star team. The Greek threw 24 free throws and scored 19, record numbers for him. Rookie Tyrese Haliburton, with 23 points (and 8 assists), top scorer for the Kings.
