After a series of six defeats, Chicago and Tomáš Satoranský won their second consecutive NBA win. The Bulls won 113: 97 in Indiana Hall on Tuesday, the Czech national team received confidence from coach Billy Donovan for more than 34 minutes and scored seven points, including one three, six rebounds and three assists. The star of the guests was Nikola Vučevič, who scored 31 points and 17 rebounds.
The Bulls shot threes with a success rate of 42 percent and built up a lead of up to 23 points. They took full advantage of the weakening of the opponent, who missed injuries Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon, and in the third part Myles Turner also had to resign.
Vučevič also recorded five assists and was seconded by Zach LaVine, who added 19 points, eight rebounds and six final passes, although he converted only six of the 18 shots. “Zach is our universal. I think he will become more and more effective as he plays in the current team,” Donovan said.
The Pacers lost to the home board for the ninth time in the last 10 games and their shooting leader was Caris LeVert with 20 points. Chicago is tenth in the Eastern Conference with a 21-28 record and loses a single win to Indiana in ninth.
Denver had his sixth triumph in a row, beating Detroit high 134: 115. Nikola Jokič contributed 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds to the victory. Nuggets fired with a success rate of almost 60 percent.
An unprecedented shooting show was demonstrated by Atlanta, which defeated New Orleans 123: 107. During the third part, the Hawks turned 11 threes with 100% success, a new league record in one quarter. In total, they scored 20 out of 31 attempts from behind the curve, with Trae Young scoring six out of seven the most. “It was fun,” said author 30 Points Young. The Pelicans were nothing valid or 34 points from Zion Williamson, who played after a three-match absence.
For the first time since 2001, Philadelphia defeated Boston in all head-to-head matches after beating the Celtics 106: 96 on Tuesday. In the second start after an injury, Joel Embiid’s pivot shone with 35 points and six rebounds.
Heroic performance and 41 points from Stephen Curry helped Golden State win 122: 121 over Milwaukee. Curry has hit five threes and has 200 on this season. He reached that number for the eighth time in his career and equaled his team-mate Klay Thompson’s record.
The teams from Los Angeles also did well. The Lakers, still playing without LeBron James and Anthony Davis, won 110: 101 in Toronto with seven double-digit shooters. Talen Horton-Tucker collected the most, 17. The Clippers defeated Portland 133: 116. Paul George contributed 36 points.
