Despite an outstanding performance by national basketball player Daniel Theis, the Boston Celtics lost the NBA top game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Theis did not start again at 109: 117, but was on the field for 27 minutes and scored 23 points in that time. There were also ten rebounds and a template. Because Joel Embiid on the other hand had 42 points, it was not enough for the third in the duel with the first of the Eastern Conference for the ninth win of the season.
“I can hardly wait until we have everyone back 100 percent,” said 28-year-old Theis. “We have a deep bench, we have a really good team. Now, with Kemba (Walker) and everyone back, we can play Celtics basketball.” At the Celtics, numerous professionals were recently not allowed to play. They were on an NBA list that lists players who either tested positive for the coronavirus or are considered a contact for someone who tested positive.
Maxi Kleber is still on this list. In the fifth game without the national player, the Dallas Mavericks won after three defeats in a row against the Indiana Pacers 124: 112.
The Brooklyn Nets suffered a defeat against the Cleveland Cavaliers after two extra times in the first game with the full cast of their new superstar trio of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and James Harden. The game ended 135: 147.
Meanwhile, the break for the Washington Wizards will be extended to include German national players Moritz Wagner and Isaac Bonga until at least next Sunday. As the NBA announced, the away game against the Milwaukee Bucks planned for Friday will also be canceled. The reason given by the NBA was the number of unavailable players for the wizards, the ongoing contact tracing and the long time the team had not been able to train. Before the decision on Wednesday evening, the wizards were able to train again for the first time.
The Wizards haven’t played since their home win against the Phoenix Suns on January 11th. The game against the Bucks is the sixth canceled game with the participation of the capital city team.
