Giannis Antetokounmpo dominates Joel Embiid, the results

NBA. Big meeting of the evening, the duel between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid turned to the advantage of the Greek of the Milwaukee Bucks, author of 40 points and the counter of the win (118-116). Note the 34 pawns of Paul George for his return to the NBA courts and the new defeat of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Giannis Antetokounmpo monumental! In Philadelphia, the Greek took over Joel Embiid, favorite for the title of MVP this season. Author of 40 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assists, the strong winger led his Milwaukee Bucks franchise (118-116) to a major success against an Eastern Conference title contender. The defending champions remain 2nd in the East behind the Miami Heat while Embiid and his teammates are 4th.

Winning return for Paul George! Injured since December 22, 2021 in the right elbow, the back of the Los Angeles Clippers was back last night after three months of absence. Against the Utah Jazz, the number 13 Clippers scored 34 points for his return in 30 minutes of play, allowing his franchise to win (121-115).

Nothing is going well with the Los Angeles Lakers! Third defeat in a row for LeBron James and his teammates who lost last night in Dallas against the Mavericks (128-110). This rout is all the more worrying for the Lakers who give up the place of 10th, last qualifying place for the play-in, of the Western conference to the Spurs of San Antonio. Without Anthony Davis and “King James”, the Lakers players took the water against Luka Doncic, author of 34 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists.

Note the excellent performance of Kevin Durant with the Brooklyn Nets against the Detroit Pistons. Author of 41 points and 11 rebounds, the strong winger allowed his franchise to win (130-123) despite Cade Cunningham’s 34 points which equaled his career points record.
