Night of stars (like almost all). In the many ‘careers’ within the NBA regular season there are names that continue to carve out their own. Some with giant goals, like the champion ring that the impressive Boston Celtics and their 17-4 record they want to achieve. Others, with their own staff, as Kevin Durant very plugged in among critics. And the protesters, like the one that has to do with Devin Booker and his Phoenix Suns. The three, with Tatum as a representative of ‘Green Pride’, they drew their weapons and set up magical performances.
In the case of Boston, the smiles do not disappear. They are the most serious, organized team and with the best notion of the style of play in the NBA. Two disruptive elements Tatum and Brown, accompanied by capable secondaries in attack. The Hornets did not last, to which the partial of 14-30 in eight minutes He explained that little was done in the Garden. A storm was coming led by Tatum.
They repeated the scoring ‘bacchanal’ of the Wizards, further raising the mark. 140-105, an outrage directed by Tatum with 35 points -four triples- in 30 minutes and a +- of 45. Party in the leader… YesAltogether in his manager, Joe Mazzulla, who prefers the low profile. “I don’t have good vibes after ace wins. Don’t put me in that category,” he said.
Booker Rules the West
The rhythm of the Celtics has no other team, and the West must find a solution. The Suns are still in the lead, with a 14-6 record. They were measured, in a great acid test, the Kings (117-122). Because in addition to the surprise factor, they add that without Chris Paul, Cameron Johnson and Jae Crowder it gives a feeling of unity and meaning in their game. Booker, lead. And Ayton or Bridges have joined that winning wave.
In the ‘PlayOff basketball’ in Sacramento a sensational Booker emerged. 44 points, 8 rebounds and 17-28 shooting. Another great production certified by a Mikal Bridges who showed who he is in two plays: capable of executing from the corner and being able to attack the basket. Key so that Booker’s barbarity was not sterile. One that, on the other hand, equals Paul Pierce with 40-point games, beating those of Paul George, Clyde Drexler and David Robinson. It takes 24.
We need to talk about Kevin…
In a different dimension and less epic in terms of objectives is Kevin Durant, who runs a magical course. He only has two blots -with performances of 12 and 20 points (which is saying)-, but the season is a total sample of scoring everywhere. Against the Magic, in the Nets’ 109-102 victory, he scored 45 points with 79% shooting. the barbarity of the night. In a tight duel, he settled with two ‘house brand’ baskets from mid-distance. The culmination of the extraterrestrial journey.
