Debe of being frustrating to sign historic performances in the playoffs and falling into the void. They may go down in the history books, but if they don’t translate into victories… That’s what’s happening to Luka Doncic, whose Mavericks fall 2-0 in their tie with the Suns even though he has scored 80 points in those two games: 45 in the first and 35 in the second. They are used for beat Michael Jordan’s scoring average in the playoffs by a tenth reaching 33.5, but not even for those.
Was the Doncic’s twelfth game over 30 points in the title series. And that, without having turned 24 years old. They are the same ones that I accumulated Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at that age. only LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant they added more Amazing figures that are not enough for lack of company.
Jason Kiddcoach of the Mavericks, hopes that more players join the cause. “Luka had a great gamebut no one else appeared. We have to make other guys shoot better. We cant win just with him scoring 30 points a night. Not at this time of year or playing against the best team in the league.”
The Slovenian prodigy assures that “the mood is good. I think it is the first time that many players are in this situation”. And he’s already looking forward to the two games in Dallas: “They have to win four, so it’s not over yet. We are going back home and our fans are incredible.”.
In that lack of help to Doncic, he is missing Jalen Brunsondecisive in the tie against the Jazz and who is tiptoeing past the Suns. It is what you have to defend yourself well. In the games against Utah I ended up with averages of 27.8 points, 48.1% accuracy in field goals and 32.9 in triples. In the two duels against the best team of the regular season, he is staying in 11.0 points and 31.3% and 16.7%respectively. Not every day Donovan Mitchell will defend him…
The main person responsible for Doncic’s recitals not having the reward of victory in Chris Paul. The balance of the Slovenian against CP3 is a victory in 10 duels. The point guard, obsessed with winning his first ring, is making the best of his game at 37 years old. He dominates games at his whim and takes them over when his team needs him most. he shows himself in the last quarters, in which he is hitting 63.8% of his shots in the playoffs. In the second game against the Mavericks scored or assisted in his team’s last 19 points. That is putting the meeting in your pocket.
Everything is more difficult for the Sixers without Joel Embiid, who suffered an orbital fracture and it is not yet known when he will be able to play again. Maybe when I get back it’ll be too late. The Heat lead 2-0 and it doesn’t look like James Harden can be the lifeline to hold on to. The vaunted signing of ‘La Barba’ is not paying off. I started off in an exciting way, but the final stretch of the Regular League and its playoffs are disappointing. Despite being considered a compulsive scorer, He has 11 games in a row in the series for the title without exceeding 25 pointsthe second-worst streak of his career behind only the first 26 playoff games he played.
If one word defines the Heat, it’s team.. Those from Miami are a block that overcame their worst moment in that brawl in a timeout between Jimmy Butler and coach Erik Spoelstra in a game when the regular season was nearing its end. Either they have overcome it or they hide it very well. The second win against the Sixers was a choral one, with each one doing what they should and with a great contribution from the bench. Tyler Herro confirmed that he is the Best Sixth Man in the NBA (18 points) and Victor Oladipo has definitely risen (19). The shooting guard scored as many points as all the rival’s substitutes.
