The Sydney Kings have leapfrogged South East Melbourne into third spot on the NBL ladder after a big win over the Phoenix.With third spot on the table up for grabs, the visitors dominated the second half of Thursday's clash at John Cain Arena to improve their win-loss record to 13-12 and move ahead of the Phoenix (13-12) thanks to a superior percentage.
The match of the night: Phoenix - Utah Change of leader in the West Conference! First for many weeks, Utah sees Phoenix pass him before, after the 121-100 victory of the Suns against the Jazz Friday in the shock of the night. Private Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley, the franchise of Salt Lake City could not do it against Suns who led from the second to the last minute. Phoenix, who signed a gun start and already led 39-23 at the end of the first quarter, counted up to 26 points ahead, at the end of the third quarter, and never trembled in This part (68-52, MT). Devin Booker, author of 31 points in 29 minutes, did not have to force his talent, and was well helped by the 18 points of Mikal Bridges. Jazz side, Bojan Bogdanovic ends with 22 points, but this match is forgotten for Utah, who has rather interest in seeing back Mitchell quickly ... Both teams are now tied, with the best assessment of the league (45V-18D ), But Phoenix, winner of his three direct confrontations, will remain in front if the two franchises are still tied at the end of the regular season. On their last nine games, Utah will play six at home, and Phoenix (who played in front of 6000 spectators on Friday) two. The MVP of the Night: Jayson Tatum Twenty-and-One Days After Beating Her Career Record by scoring 53 points against Minnesota, Jayson Tatum has done better Friday at the Victory 143-140 of Boston against San Antonio after extension. The 23-year-old scored 60 points in 45 minutes, at 20 out of 37 shots (5/7 at 3pts) and 15 out of 17 at La Cranks-Francs)! Tatum was extraordinary and handed his team into the right way, while she was conducted 32 points at the end of the second quarter! The score was 69-37 for the Spurs three minutes from half-time, and Tatum had already registered 22 points at that time. But the Celtics are capable of worst as best this season, and they were worn by their star in second half, with 28 points to his meter in the last two quarters (128-128), and again in the extension , including the last four of his team, at Francs-Francs. This second victory in a row does good from the Celtics, sixths of the East tied with Atlanta. San Antonio is Ninth from the West. The flop of the night: the Lakers absent for twenty games due to an ankle injury, LeBron James has made his return tonight, during the match between Lakers and Sacramento. But that did not prevent the champions from tugging 106-110 at the Staples Center in the face of kings almost eliminated from the play-in race and remaining on a 105-154 defeat against Utah! "King James" played 32 minutes and scored 16 points (6 out of 12 on shots, including 1/5 to 3pts), taken 8 rebounds and delivered 7 passes. Anthony Davis was also present (22pts, 11rbds), just like Andre Drummond (17pts, 7RBDS) but, despite everything, the Lakers conceded their 27th defeat of the season. However, they threw eleven points at the beginning of the last quarter (94-83), but cashed a 10-0 and the Kings have definitively passed to 3'52 of the buzzer (99-97), the Lakers no longer arriving at come back less than two points. It remains nine games to the title champions to put the machine on the road with their two stars before the play-offs. They only rely that a lead in advance on the play-in and have any interest in quickly securing their place in play-offs ... where they could deal with Denver or the Clippers in the first round! The French of the Night: Rudy Gobert The night was far from extraordinary for the French, including three out of five players who played three minutes or less. We will still remember the 8 points, 10 rebounds and 3 courses of Rudy Gobert during the defeat of Utah in Phoenix. The pivot did what he could, but in the absence of Mitchell and Conley, it's more complicated for him too.
