Lyou Golden State Warriors They had lost strength in recent weeks, but it seems that they are once again candidates in a season with no fixed forecast. For months they had endured the arm wrestling with the Phoenix Suns for the Western crown, but in recent dates Steve Kerr’s pupils seemed to have lost the ‘mojo’. especially a Stephen Curry that during some sections of the course seems to be saving strength for major companies such as the triple record, the All Star MVP and now, who knows, if the ring.
With the clueless base and Draymond Green lesionadothose from San Francisco began to falter and accumulated a balance of nine defeats in 11 games in the middle of February. A record that allowed the Grizzlies went up to their beards and stole their place in the second echelon of the West.
But like he said Rudy Tomjanovich, never doubt the heart of a champion. And if anyone has forgotten, the Warriors have been on up to three occasions. Something that they themselves took it upon themselves to remind the Milwaukee Bucks, current kings of the NBAwho succumbed to Kerr’s team, who have regained their good feelings and who have struck a blow on the table with three consecutive victories of merit against Clippers, Nuggets and the Wisconsin franchise.
A victory achieved despite another bad night by Stephen Curry, who finished with eight points in his locker. However, and there is another of the great news for the season for the Warriors, Kerr had the best version of Klay Thompson, who signed his best game after his return to the courts after two years suffering his particular ordeal with injuries.
The escort finished with 38 points in your lockerin addition to six rebounds and five assists, and sparked his team with a display in the second quarter: 17 points with five triples to finish with an eight of 14 from beyond the arc and sent a message to the NBA: it is the missing piece for the Warriors to once again be considered candidates for everything this season.
what a night for Jordan Clarkson! The Utah Jazz player showed that the points fall out of his pockets and that, inspired, he is one of the best offensive players in the NBA. Especially coming off the bench. Clarkson put his name back in the pools for the award for Best Sixth Man of the Year with an attacking recital before the Sacramento Kingswhom he destroyed with 45 points (the most by a reserve this season) with 15 of 21 shooting from the field and seven of 13 from 3-point range.
New night without minutes for a Juancho Hernangomez which still doesn’t fit into Quin Snyder’s plans. Quite the opposite of what happens to Serge Ibaka with Mike Budenholzer. The center of Congolese origin came off the bench again in the defeat of the Milwaukee Bucks against the Golden State Warriors (122-109) in a game in which he added 15 points (six of nine from the field and two of three from the triple) and six rebounds in 17 minutes.
The night of the secondary in the NBA. If in Utah the protagonist has been a Jordan Clarkson ‘on fire’ in Portland all the spotlights have pointed to a veteran hardened in a thousand battles as he is Josh Hart. The escort stood out in the triumph of the Oregon ante los Washington Wizards (127-118) in a match that ended with 44 points thanks to his 15 of 21 field goals and his six triples from nine attempts. He also had eight rebounds, six assists and four steals.
The season is starting to get too long for a Facundo Campazzo who barely has minutes in Mike Malone’s rotation. Against the Toronto Raptors (115-127 for the Canadians) the Argentine barely had a minute on the parquetwithout time to add for some Nuggets who have forgotten about the Cordovan point guard, who still can’t find regularity in his NBA adventure.

Small stop to the great season of the Miami Heat with an unexpected loss at home to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a game in which Spoelstra’s starting five didn’t work out. At least from triple. Among PJ Tucker, Bam Adebayo, Kyle Lowry, Duncan Robinson and Gabe Vincent only made three of 20 3-pointers that they tried
The Cavaliers remain in the playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, but in recent days they have lost some strength due to injuries. A circumstance from which the Bulls took a slice (101-91) in a game in which Darius Garland gave the lime (25 points and seven assists) and the sand with six turnovers that show their problems when leading the team.
