NBA: Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks explode Stephen Curry’s Golden State Warriors


The match: Milwaukee crushes Golden State under the leadership of Antetokounmpo

The absence of Draymond Green is seriously starting to be felt in Golden State. Without him, his teammates took to the water against Milwaukee. The defending champions wandered, dominating those who aspire to take their place to win 118 to 99 after counting 39 points ahead at the break (77-38), in their room this Thursday. The Warriors suffered defensively – where Green’s absence is most critical – but weren’t able to match the Bucks offensively. In short, a one-way shock in favor of Giannis Antetokounmpo and his partners.

King James ahead: Durant and Curry lead All-Star Game votes

01/06/2022 At 8:59 PM

The double MVP took over everyone by compiling 30 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in 30 minutes. And without forcing his talent. Then again, Green’s presence could have helped slow down the Greek superstar. The Warriors found themselves without a solution. Especially since Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have once again been clumsy. 12 points at 4 out of 11 for the first, 11 points at 3 out of 11 for the second. Too little to keep the California franchise afloat. It concedes here its second consecutive defeat and loses ground on Phoenix while letting Memphis come dangerously close to second place in the West.

Performance: 11 wins in a row for the Grizzlies!

The streak continues for Memphis. But she was undermined by Minnesota on Thursday night. The Grizzlies ended up winning 116-108 against the Timberwolves by forcing in the last minutes of the game. Ja Morant and his teammates are starting to show signs of fatigue – winning streaks are mentally taxing, even more so when it comes to a franchise record – but they have provided the essentials with this new success, at home .

Anthony Edwards (30 points), D’Angelo Russell (29) and Karl-Anthony Towns (25) have yet tried everything by compiling 84 points. But the Grizzlies once again came out thanks to their collective with 5 players at 15 points or more. Including 21 for Desmond Bane and 20 for Jaren Jackson Jr.

Player: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander sends the Nets to the mat!

Oklahoma City, one of the worst teams in the league, which clearly won against Brooklyn (109-130), no one saw it coming. But the Nets played without Kevin Durant and without Kyrie Irving, leaving a very clumsy James Harden (7 of 22) in charge. Too bad, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander took the opportunity to play the stars in New York. The young Canadian point guard had one of his best games of the season with 33 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists.

Lu Dort perfectly supported « SGA » with 27 points and 6 award-winning baskets. The Nets seemed exhausted, like Harden, author of 26 points but without weighing on the game. A sharp contrast to the previous match, when they largely took over the Bulls, first in the East.

The French: Nicolas Batum cannot prevent the Clippers from sinking

The Los Angeles Clippers lost to New Orleans (113-89), on the road, and Nicolas Batum finished with 6 points and 4 rebounds in 24 minutes. He also blocked 3 shots but his whole team took the water against the Pelicans.

The results of the night in the NBA

Bucks-Warriors: 118-99
Grizzlies-Wolves: 116-108
Pelicans-Clippers: 113-89
Nets-Thunder: 109-130
Nuggets-Trail Blazers: 140-108
