basketball | NBA: NBA – Orlando Magic with surprising win against Mavericks

Status: 01/31/2022 07:28 a.m

The Orlando Magic with the brothers Franz and Moritz Wagner slowed down the good run of the Dallas Mavericks in the North American basketball league NBA and surprisingly won their home game.

At 108:110 on Sunday (01/30/2022/local time) Maximilian Kleber missed the chance of victory for the Mavericks with a missed three and ended the game with a poor shot rate of only 25 percent.

After a strong performance on his 30th birthday the day before in the win against Indiana, when he matched a career-best 14 rebounds and also scored 15 points, he now had to settle for six points, five rebounds and no assists. It was only the Mavericks’ third loss in the past ten games.

18 points for Franz Wagner

Orlando, on the other hand, was happy about only the eleventh win of the season and another good evening for the Wagner brothers. Franz Wagner contributed 18 points to the success, his older brother Moritz Wagner scored 14 points. Because a total of seven basketball players scored in double digits, that was enough despite the triple double from Mavericks star Luka Doncic.

“If everyone touches the ball and we share it and play for each other, then we are very difficult to defend,” said Franz Wagner. The defeat was also painful for the Mavericks because the Denver Nuggets won 136:100 against the Milwaukee Bucks and thus reduced the deficit in the Western Conference. Immediately before the Mavericks, however, the Utah Jazz lost 106:126 against the Minnesota Timberwolves and thus also the fifth game in a row.

Suns with ninth straight win

At the top, the Phonix Suns clinched a 115-110 win over the San Antonio Spurs for their ninth win in a row.
