Zach LaVine helps Chicago dominate Brooklyn

Player: Zach LaVine (Chicago)

The Brooklyn Nets lost at home (108-99) on Tuesday to the Chicago Bulls for their first game without Steve Nash, their now ex-coach, temporarily replaced by Jacque Vaughn. The New York franchise entered the last quarter, with a three-point lead (80-77). But then she fell victim to Chicago guard Zach LaVine. He scored 29 points in the game, including 20 in the last 12 minutes alone, including four successful three-point shots. The Bulls, who averaged 43.8% shooting success during the game, shot to 52.4% in the final quarter.

On the side of the Nets, Kevin Durant assured (32 points). Kyrie Irving, already lamentable outside the floors, was ridiculous with four small points, scored in the last quarter (2/12 to shoot, 0/6 to three points).

The series: and 5 for Phoenix

The Phoenix Suns are now on a five-game winning streak. After the LA Clippers, Golden State, New Orleans and Houston, the Arizona franchise beat the Minnesota Timberwolves (116-109). Apart from the first minutes, Phoenix led the whole match, with a point at + 18 in the third quarter (74-56, 28th). But Minnesota also managed to come back to two points (87-85, 39th), before the Suns took off again and sped towards victory. Cameron Johnson was Phoenix’s leading scorer (29 pts). Karl-Anthony Towns scored 24 pts and took 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves. Rudy Gobert was more discreet (seven points – all on free throws – and nine rebounds).

The stat: 11 shots in a row missed by Orlando

The Orlando Magic’s start to the season is decidedly difficult. In eight games, the Florida franchise has won only once. Tuesday, she lost on the floor of the Oklahoma City Thunder (116-108). With a bleak statistic for her: at the end of the match, the Orlando players were not at all magical, since they missed their last 11 shot attempts, during the eight minutes that remained to be played. Floridians, during this time, had to settle for free throws from Wendell Carter. Too bad, because before becoming voiceless, they still led 104-93. In particular carried by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (34 pts), Oklahoma City took the opportunity to catch up and win. Ousmane Dieng (Thunder) played 17 minutes, for eight points and four rebounds.
