Milwaukee prevailed on Friday evening (local time) thanks to a strong final quarter with 118: 112. Antetokounmpo shone with 34 points and 16 rebounds, in the last five minutes, Jrue Holiday 10 achieved his 26 points. The Bucks still turned the game in the final phase and now lead the Central Division – just with the bulls, all of which lost all the previous season games against the three other top teams of the Eastern Conference. The Miami Heat (42:22) lead in front of the Philadelphia 76ers (39:23) and the Bucks and Bulls (39:25 each).
The Sixers sat down on Friday with 125: 76 against the Cleveland Cavaliers and celebrated their fifth victory in a row. In Philadelphia, where new approach James Harden (25 points, 11 assists) was re-euphorically celebrated, Tyrese Maxey posted five threesome and 33 points on the way to success. Joel Embid came to 22 points and 9 rebounds. In the future, the 76ers will receive further reinforcement: Center Deandre Jordan, who worked with Coach Doc Rivers at L.A. Clippers, signed in Philadelphia after being released from the Lakers.
Wagner and the Magic give red lantern at Schröder’s Rockets
Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic are no longer the team with the worst record of the league after the third victory from the past four games. Franz Wagner contributed eleven points, seven rebounds and five assists to the 103: 97 success at the Toronto Raptors, but hit only five of his 14 throws. At the Raptors, the German international Isaac Bonga came to a short-call for the first time since the end of January. Franz Wagner’s older brother Moritz continues to lack the Magic because of a ribver injury.
Dennis Schröder had to watch injured as his Houston Rockets conceded the twelfth defeat in series. The Rockets are after the 101: 116 at the Denver Nuggets now the worst team of the league.
