Decidedly all successful them Nets! Traveling to the Heat, eighth in the conference, Brooklyn clinched a tough victory in the dying seconds with a tap from Royce O’Neale. The two teams went blow for blow throughout the meeting, neither managing to widen a gap. The hosts did a great defensive job on Kevin Durant, limit 17 points 5/11. Nevertheless, as often, in the end it is Brooklyn who wins, thanks in particular to the efforts of Kyrie Irving (29 points) and Seth Curry (14 points). In front, Jimmy Butler (26 points and 8 rebounds) and Tyler Herro (24 points) will have given everything without success.

- PHEONIX SUNS 98-112 CLEVELAND CAVALIERS
Reverse story on the side of the Suns, who, orphans of their leaders Chris Paul (hip) and Devin Booker (groin), chained a sixth defeat. The visitors quickly took a lead (35-26 in the first twelve minutes), led by the backcourt Darius Garland (22 points et 7 passes) – Donovan Mitchell (22 marks). Phoenix slowly came back to score in the second and third period, before succumbing in the fourth quarter (32-19 for the Cavs). The Suns, however, have an insolent success in the parking lot (14/26), and Duane Washington Jr had a “Bookeresque” match (25 points 9/18), but overall the level is not there in Arizona, now seventh in the west with 20 wins for 20 losses, all the more so in l absence of their two all stars.
On the road to Houston, the Timberwolves rallied from a 20-point deficit to clinch a fourth straight win. Wolves are unbeaten in 2023. They can thank another good game fromAnthony Edwards (21 points and 6 assists) and D’Angelo Russell (22 points, 6 assists). After an empty passage in the first period, like his team, Rudy Gobert had a great second half and finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds.
On the side of Philadelphia, Tyrese Maxey (23 points) and especially James Harden, in triple double (20 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists) shine and win the victory for the Pistons (111-123), despite a great game of Killian Hayes (26 points, 6 passes).
Sans I Morant (thigh) the Memphis Grizzlies win their sixth straight win (123-118) in a home game against the Utah Jazz. Desmond Bane finished as the game’s leading scorer with 24 points and 9 assists).
Tyrese Haliburton and the Pacers continue to delight us tonight with a 116-111 win over the Hornets. Haliburton continues his all star performance with 16 points, 13 assists and 3 steals, but yesterday the star of the game was Myles Turnerwho finished with 29 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks, including one in the last moments to secure the victory.
The festivals Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continued yesterday, this time against Dallas without Luka Doncic. The Canadian scored 33 points, along with 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks. He helped his team clinch their third victory in 4 games, bringing OKC 2.5 victory of the play-in.
Finally, Atlanta went to win at the end of the line at the Clippers (108-112), despite a Kawhi Leonard vintage (29 points and 7 rebounds), and a Edge Tooth dominant (17 points and 18 rebounds). The reason ? a Trae Young unleashed in the fourth quarter, who scored 14 of his 30 points in the last twelve minutes. Here is what gives a little air to the Hawks, who remained on 5 defeats in 6 games. The Clippers, meanwhile, continue their worrying streak of 6 straight defeats…
