The 5 outstanding performances of the night in the NBA

Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks)

Dallas is making a comeback. Watch out for the Mavericks. This team seems more dangerous than what its record indicates since the start of the season. And now that they are finding their balance and their cruising speed, Texans are getting more and more formidable. They went for a sixth straight win last night. By outright offering the Bulls, first in the East (113-99).

Luka Doncic was obviously in charge. The Slovenian, who missed the last game with a little pain in his ankle, finished with a triple-double on the clock. 22 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists. Own. Five of his teammates scored 10 or more points. Including 18 for Maxi Kleber and Josh Green.

The Mavericks have won their last six games by an average difference of over 15 points. While limiting their opponents to 93 points. A defense in progress, an attack found… it can hurt.

Kyle Kuzma (Washington Wizards)

A 20 rebound game doesn’t happen every day. Even in this NBA where the possessions are numerous because of the sustained rhythm of the meetings. Suddenly, Kyle Kuzma’s double-double yesterday remains a great accomplishment for the Wizards winger, author of 27 points and 22 rebounds in the narrow victory against the Magic (102-100).

His performance was necessary to prevent his franchise from a third loss in a row. Especially since every success counts for Washington, in the fight for a place in the top-8 of the Eastern Conference. Kuzma and her partners are currently ninth, despite many forfeits since the start of the year. The 27-year-old has something to do with it since he has a good individual exercise with 15 points and more than 8 rebounds on average.

Pascal Siakam (Toronto Raptors)

Sometimes heckled since his rise to All-Star status, Pascal Siakam looks better this season. Especially at the moment. His 29 points, 10 rebounds and 7 evening assists seem to confirm the regain of form of the man. Moreover, his Raptors, winners of the Pelicans, are a hit. They remain on six wins in a row. Their best series this season. With even a return to seventh place in the East.

Siakam is part of this rise in power. He runs at 24 points (48% success and 52% three-pointers), more than 11 rebounds and 6 assists on the six successes in question.

Anfernee Simons (Portland Trail Blazers)

Damian Lillard is forfeited for the next six matches. At least. The Blazers can therefore continue to enjoy the Anfernee Simons show. Presented as the future of the franchise by Lillard himself, the young leader-scorer from Portland is confident and he is putting on a series of high-ranking performances. They don’t all translate into wins, but that was the case against the Kings last night.

A 103-88 success with 31 points from the 22-year-old, once again a success behind the three-point line (7 of 11). In 7 starts, he compiled 20 points, 50% on shots, 44% on three points and 5 assists. Encouraging for the future.

Amir Coffey (Los Angeles Clippers)

In their misfortune, the Clippers have found themselves a new contributor. Amir Coffey takes advantage of packages in shambles in Los Angeles to make his place in the rotation. He has spent more than 20 minutes on the field in the last 10 games for a very interesting performance: 10.7 points, 50% on shots, 42% on three-pointers and 4.7 rebounds.

The young player even scored 21 points last night to get Los Angeles out of a bad patch. Winner of Atlanta, the Californian team ended a series of 3 consecutive defeats.
