Ewere the two big favorites for the title when the season began, I say they were because the Lakers they have sunk in the stakes. And, while the Nets, which began to capsize, it seems that they find their way, the Lakers continue to drift with some lime and many sand. And replaced by Warriors in the West in the betting preferences.
Brooklyn just signed a 5-1 tour that has not only placed him at the top of his conference, only surpassed by the Wizards, but has revitalized the project with a Kevin Durant way to be MVP, a James Harden more reminiscent of the lethal ‘Beard’ and no news of the vaccinations of Kyrie Irving. We are almost starting, but his feelings are very good. They will have a trial by fire against the Warriors in a couple of days.
Quite the opposite of Lakers, 8-7 in their conference, many problems to win the games, those who win, of course, and ridiculous like the one they played against the Wolves or the last one, at the Staples against the Bulls.
The Lakers they were razed by Chicago, 103-121, in a game in which LA received as a hero to Alex Caruso, the one they let go of, the one Anthony Davis was sent off for tying his shoe and facing the referee, they already lost by 20, and in which a team dependent on the health of LeBron and that much has to improve, despite the fact that there is a lot of regular season left, to reach the Playoffs as a candidate team. At the moment everything is going wrong in LA The good thing for them is that it is only November …

Each party of the Bulls it’s a show. Chicago moved their ‘Showtime’ to Staples in Los Angeles and there shined DeMar DeRozan like no one, opposing the transfer of the year. DeRozan had his best game of the season with 38 points and 15 of 23 in shooting from the field. But it wasn’t just him. He had the great help of Zach LaVine, 26 points and the former Laker Lonzo Ball, 27 points, to crush the yellow ones.
What doesn’t happen (bad) in the Lakers this year won’t happen anywhere else. This season we have already seen fights between teammates on the bench. And now comes a absurd expulsion from Anthony Davis that neither favors the restitution of the good vibes in the wardrobe.
At 2:20 to the end of the third quarter, and at 66-86 for the Bulls, Davis he began to tie one of his sneakers while Chicago put the ball into play. Urged on by one of the referees, the Lakers player seems to dedicate a message to him that cost him the expulsion. ‘The eyebrow‘He had received one technique during the match and received a second because of what he told the referee. The consequence was expulsion from the party.
Not long ago a game between Spanish players was almost an event in the NBA. Until ‘Spanish Night‘they used to celebrate. Now we congratulate ourselves if the two coincide on the track. It is what it touches. Except for Ricky Rubio good winds are not blowing for Spanish basketball in the NBA.
In the case of Usman Garuba and Santi Aldama They may both be paying the toll of being newbies. On this day their teams are measured for the first time this season and, fortunately, both had a presence on the court. Perhaps, of course, because the Grizzlies ended the game against the worst team in the league on the fast track, 136-102.
Both players took advantage of their minutes. AldamaIn the winners, he played six minutes and finished with four points, two rebounds and two assists. Garuba he spent nine minutes on the track to achieve five points, six rebounds and two assists. They disputed the minutes of the garbage, of course, although when you do not have minutes, any time on the court is golden.
More than a mate or a triple on the horn, the play of the day is an injury. that of Luka Doncic, due to the impact it may have. With 44 seconds to go Mavs 111-101 Nuggets, Doncic went to defend an entrance from Austin Rivers that fell on his left ankle.
The Slovenian immediately went to the bench with obvious gestures of pain. In the end, according to his coach Jason Kidd, “Luka left on his own foot, but we have to do tests and see the evolution of the injury.”
Doncic He already missed 11 games a couple of seasons ago due to ankle problems and ended up playing the Playoffs impaired by this circumstance.
