Hot Gary Trent Jr.’s Raptors end Hawks’ streak | NBA

Despite the fatigue linked to their recent marathon ended in triple overtime in Miami, the Raptors have found the resources to continue on the floor of the Hawks. The latter, who remained on a series of seven consecutive successes, were deprived of Trae Young, on the sidelines due to shoulder pain. His absence did not prevent Atlanta from staying in touch with the Raptors throughout this hotly contested meeting. Taking advantage of a De'Andre Hunter – Kevin Huerter tandem in form, Atlanta even took the lead at the break (57-48) after a controlled second quarter. The locals had a lot more trouble containing the Canadian attack in the third act (15-32 in favor of the Raptors), like a Gary Trent Jr. on fire behind the 3-point line. He scored an award-winning shot at the buzzer to ...

Derrick Rose hopes to return after the All-Star Game | NBA

When he had surgery on his right ankle on December 22, Derrick Rose knew he would be out for at least eight weeks. More than five weeks after being on the pool table, the Knicks point guard is on schedule. Nevertheless, he should not return before the announced two months. “Shortly after the All-Star Game”, he says to the New York Post, as the Knicks resume Feb. 25 at Madison Square Garden against the Heat.

Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets in demonstration in Milwaukee: + 36! | NBA

Halfway through the first quarter, the ten starters have all scored and Denver has a very narrow lead (14-12). The rest of the quarter is just as pleasant and balanced, and we remember several things: the Bucks dominate under the panels (18 points in the racket), which is logical when we have Giannis Antetokounmpo in his ranks, the Nuggets are already skillful from afar (6/14), and especially Nikola Jokic is already monumental after 12 minutes (6 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals!). At the start of the second quarter, the Nuggets lead by 3 small points and stabilize this lead for several minutes thanks to the contribution of their bench, Bones Hyland, Bryn Forbes and JaMychal Green in the lead. After 6 minutes in this second act, Giannis is already at 14 points and comp...

The Hawks overthrow the Lakers in the last quarter | NBA

As they have just learned that LeBron James must take a rest period to treat his sore left knee, the Lakers have suffered another frustrating loss during their "road trip" to the East, which is finally coming to an end. And this time, it was the Hawks who managed to dominate the "Purple & Gold", thanks to a superb fourth quarter, won with a score of 38-20. In the wake, also, of an excellent Trae Young (36 points, 5 rebounds, 12 assists), well supported by his interiors, Onyeka Okongwu in the lead. Despite all the efforts of the trio Russell Westbrook – Malik Monk – Anthony Davis (80 points in total), Atlanta therefore won a seventh victory in a row and continued, above all, its rise in the standings in the East, while Los Angeles still remains out of the Top 8 in the West. WHAT Y...

All-Star Game: Andrew Wiggins responds to the controversy over his selection | NBA

Like Ja Morant, Andrew Wiggins picked up his first All-Star Game selection, but unlike the Grizzlies point guard, the Warriors winger isn't unanimous. For many, he took the place of Chris Paul or Devin Booker, and he owes his selection to an influx of votes from Korea. But Wiggins doesn't care. “It has been a long road to get here. I've been through a lot of ups and downs. I come here to play, then I go home to play with my children, then I go to bed. In this order. I play basketball, and I don't care about outside noise. I'm here to improve myself again and again. Everyone will have their say, but I take it as an additional motivation to progress and improve further. »“He was everywhere in defense.
