The 2022 NBA season continues. Eight matches were played during the Italian night and emotions were certainly not lacking. Let’s find out all the results and the best scorers of the day.
Detroit smiles, defeating Atlanta in overtime 113-110 and taking the third consecutive victory. The best of the game is Cade Cunningham with 28 points, 10 assists and 6 rebounds, but Jerami Grant ‘s performance is also excellent (23 points). At Hawks’ home , Bogdan Bogdanovic’s 22 points are worth noting, while Danilo Gallinari ends the match with 14 points and 4 rebounds. An amazing Joel Embiid scores 43 points and 14 rebounds and drags Philadelphia to the success for 121-106 against Chicago . James Harden ‘s performance (16 points, 14 assists and 8 rebounds) is also important for the Bulls. For the Bulls good, but useless, the tests of Zach LaVine (24 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists) and DeMar DeRozan (23 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists).
Great success for Miami, which defeats Houston 123-106. For the Heat , 31 points from the bench by Tyler Herro, 21 points 7 rebounds by Jimmy Butler and double doubles by Bam Adebayo (18 points and 10 rebounds) and PJ Tucker (11 points and 12 rebounds) are fundamental. At the Rockets home , Kevin Porter Jr. ‘s 22 points are not enough. A magnificent Karl-Anthony Towns with 27 points and 13 rebounds leads Minnesota to a clear victory against Portland for 124-81. For the Timberwolves the performances of Malik Beasley (19 points) and Naz Reid (18 points and 11 rebounds) are also good. For Trail Blazers, Brandon Williams’ 27 points and 8 rebounds are not enough.
Dallas defeats Utah 111-103 thanks to a wild Luka Doncic (35 points, 16 rebounds and 7 assists) and wins the fifth consecutive success. Among the ranks of the Mavericks the performance of Spencer Dinwiddie is also excellent (23 points), while the 21 points of Bojan Bogdanovic are not enough for the Jazz . Nice victory for San Antonio, who overtakes the Lakers 117-110. For the Spurs the three players with 18 or more points on the scoresheet are fundamental (the best is Dejounte Murray who scores 26 points, to which 10 rebounds are also added). The Californian franchise (without LeBron James and Anthony Davis), on the other hand, does not need the 18 points of Talen Horton-Tucker.
Denver got the better of Golden State for 131-124 and took home the third win in a row. Magnificent triple double by Nikola Jokic (32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists). At the Nuggets home the 18 points each from Jeff Green and Monte Morris are also very useful, while the Warriors (who took the field without several important players including Steph Curry) are not enough 32 points from Jordan Poole and 30 from Moses Moody to avoid the fifth defeat in a row. An overwhelming Julius Randle (46 points and 10 rebounds) brings New York to the away win against Sacramento 115-131. For the Knicks , RJ Barrett ‘s 29 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists and Immanuel Quickley’s 27 points are also essential. For the Kings good, but useless, the tests of De’Aaron Fox (24 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds), Harrison Barnes (23 points) and Domantas Sabonis (19 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists).
