The Jazz scorch the Celtics with triples

The league leader wins at the Garden with a great Donovan Mitchell. The Sixers suffer with the Knicks, while the Heat and Hawks are still on a roll.

Celtics 109 - Jazz 117

The Utah Jazz achieved a good victory in Boston, in a game that was decided in the last minutes. Donovan Mitchell was the best and hit a key triple at the end that gave his team a decisive advantage. The guard, who finished with 21 points, reaches 6,000 in his entire career and becomes the Jazz player who reaches this figure fastest, overtaking Karl Malone. The Celtics, far from the top, are in the middle of the fight for the East play-in.

Heat 113 - Cavs 98

Fifth consecutive victory for the Miami Heat and, for a change, this time it came easily. The Cavs who were one of the positive surprises at the beginning of the season, it seems that they held the towel a long time ago and beating them is no longer news. Jimmy Butler, who missed several games earlier in the season, has been pulling his team lately by playing at the MVP level. 28 points, 8 rebounds and 12 assists for him and the Heat, increasingly settled in fourth place.

Sixers 99 - Knicks 96

Sixth win in a row for the East leader, who this time had to sweat to beat an opponent in a certain decline in terms of results, but who continues to give a lot of war in games. In this there was controversy over an arbitration decision at the end, which even caused Julius Randle to lose his temper and his teammates had to hold him so that he did not go after the referees. The recent all star stayed at 19 points and 7/19 in shots due to the defense of a spectacular Tobias Harris, the clear protagonist of the game. Apart from his defensive performance, which Doc Rivers would highlight at the end of the game, Harris was the leading scorer with 30 points.

Bulls 123 - Thunder 102

Very simple victory for the Chicago Bulls, who literally swept the Thunder in the third quarter (31-16). Zach LaVine, another of the newly named all stars, completed an excellent game reaching 40 points in a 15/20 shooting series. It is the 19th game of 30 or more points for the guard in the first 38 games of the season, something that no Bulls player achieved since Michael Jordan in the 96-97 season.Rockets 107 - Hawks 119

The Hawks were until recently one of the great disappointments of the course, although they had the excuse of casualties due to injury. But now that they are recovering players, it may not be an excuse. Against some Rockets who do not raise their heads (17 losses in a row), the Atlanta team signed its sixth consecutive victory and is fully in the fight for the playoffs: they are already seventh, two games behind fourth place. Although today they did not have Cam Reddish, DeAndre Hunter and Clint Capella, Danilo Gallinari, one of those who missed the most games in the lean cows, achieved his best score of the year with 29 points.Blazers 125 - Pelicans 124

Impressive game by Damian Lillard, who with his 50 points helps his team go back 17 behind. Zion Williamson had the shot to win. Read the chronicle here.

Lakers 137 - Wolves 121

Third consecutive victory for the Angelenos, who regain their tone after a losing streak. The Wolves, with a good Ricky Rubio, sank in the end. Read the chronicle here.
