Charlotte Hornets - Miwaukee Bucks - Utah Jazz - Detroit Pistons

  • Charlotte 103-99 Milwaukee

Bucks and Hornets met for the 2nd time in a row Charlotte and like last Saturday the champion fell. In a match with constant leader changes (20), the North Carolina franchise once again had the last word after a floater of LaMelo Ball 99 all over, 15 seconds left. On the following action Giannis lost the ball – the 20th of the match for the Bucks – after a bad pass and Miles Bridges bends the game on throws. Charlotte wins 103-99. The Hornets collective shone again with Ball, who scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half, while Miles Bridges doubled (17 points, 11 rebounds) and terry rozier is 27 units. Thanks to this victory, the men of James Borrego have won 6 of their last 8 games and are 12-5 at home. Milwaukee the period is less joyful with a 4th defeat in 5 games. Antetokounmpo (26 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists) and Middleton (27 points, 11 assists but 7 lost balls) did the job, just like Jordan Nwora with his 18 points, but the absence of Jrue Holiday or even george hill is felt. Without a real leader, Kris Middleton must play more at position 1 in their absence. An unusual position for him and has been felt with 13 lost balls in the 2 games against the Hornets. The Bucks will have a few days off to prepare for Thursday’s clash against the Warriors.

Always without Rudy Gobert, Utah has found the majority of its usual holders, but nevertheless lost Detroit 126-116, the fault in the second half when the Jazz conceded 78 points! However, everything had started well for the teammates of Donovan Mitchell with a first quarter of fire wins 35-21. After such a start and with the experience of Jazz, the evening seemed set to be quiet for the visitors, especially as they still lead 61-48 at the break. But as we have seen lately, the absence of Gobert has brought to light the defensive weaknesses of this team and the Pistons will take the opportunity to come back by planting 40 points in the 3rd quarter, including 18 by the only Cade Cunningham and by conceding only 23. The locals went ahead and despite a return from the Jazz at the start of the 4th quarter, Detroit will respond with 3 points by Cory Joseph (16 points) and Trey Lyles (14 points), then again by Cunningham to take an 8-point lead and no longer be caught. The 1st pick of the last draft achieves a career high with 29 points and adds 8 assists, all 58% on shots. Saddiq Bey also adds 29 points and here is Detroit with a positive record of 4 wins and 2 losses for the year 2022! Opposite Donovan Mitchell scored 31 points and Hassan Whiteside pulls out a big double-double with 21 points and 14 rebounds.
