The Warriors offer themselves the Jazz, Tatum is a hit


The NBA clash of the night saw Golden State defeat Utah 94-92, in a game that saw Rudy Gobert suffer a calf injury. Many leaders have also bowed outside: Brooklyn, Chicago, Memphis or the Lakers.

The poster of the night: Golden State – Utah

The second in the Western Conference received the fourth Sunday, and the highest ranked team won. Golden State, despite a Stephen Curry at 1 of 13 from 3 points and 13 points in total, beat Utah, still deprived of Donovan Mitchell in concussion protocol, with a score of 94-92. In this very tight match, where Utah never had a lead of more than five points (at the start of the match) and Golden State thirteen (in the third quarter), everything was decided in the last seconds. The score was 89-89 with four minutes remaining, then Jordan Poole (20pts) and Kevon Looney (10pts, 6rbds) gave the Warriors a five-point lead (94-89), before Bojan Bogdanovic (21pts, 8rbds) only brings the Jazz down to -2 at 33 seconds from the buzzer. But no points were scored afterwards, Bogdanovic narrowly missing the winning shot two seconds from the end, before Royce O’Neale missed at the buzzer the lay-up that would have taken the two teams into extra time. A little tap that Rudy Gobert might not have missed, but the French pivot (12pts, 18rbds) was out 2’30 from the end due to calf pain. He is a doubt for the clash in Phoenix on Monday.

MVP of the night: Jayson Tatum

Boston is having a fairly anonymous season, with eighth place in the Eastern Conference and a barely even balance (24v-24d), but Celtics fans had a great time on Sunday, with Jayson Tatum scoring 51 points , also author of 10 rebounds and 7 assists, during the 87-116 victory in Washington. In this one-sided game, where the Wizards of Bradley Beal (19pts, 7pds) were led from start to finish, even if they held for a quarter and a half, the winger (or strong winger) of 23 years old delivered a magnificent performance. He returned 18 of his 28 shots, including 9 of 14 from 3 points, while he remained on a terrible 0 of 17 long distance over the last three games. It’s the third time Tatum has topped 50 points in the regular season, after his career-high 53 against Minnesota on April 9 and 60 against San Antonio three weeks later. “It’s an incredible feeling. Seeing so many away fans wearing a ‘Tatum 0’ shirt is something I don’t take for granted. There are about 450 guys in the League, and they took the time to go buy my jersey, ”rejoiced the Celtics star, applauded by part of the Capital One Arena.

The flop of the night: Chicago

Fourth defeat in five games for Chicago, which is now only third in the Eastern Conference after having been the leader for a long time. The Bulls fell from a height losing 114-95 at bottom East Orlando, which won only its ninth game of the season and ended a nine-game losing streak at home. Deprived of Zach LaVine, Alex Caruso, and Lonzo Ball, Chicago was able to count on a huge DeMar DeRozan, author of 41 points (season record, no 3pt shot), a Coby White at 22 points and a Nikola Vucevic at 13 points and 13 rebounds against his former team, but it was still insufficient to beat Moritz Wagner’s Magic (23pts). The Floridians took control in the middle of the second quarter and then did not let go, increasing their lead to +20. Next to the plate, the Bulls managed only 10 assists, for 21 lost balls. They will probably only be able to do better in their next match, Monday at Oklahoma City.

The French of the night: Evan Fournier

After three straight losses, New York returned to victory, at the expense of the Los Angeles Clippers, beaten 110-102 in a match that began at 1:30 p.m. at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks led from start to finish during this game, but nothing was easy for them, because the Californians were never trailing by more than fourteen points (at the end of the third quarter), and were trailing only seven points in the money-time. If RJ Barrett was the leader of Tom Thibodeau’s men, with 28 points and 14 rebounds on the clock, and Julius Randle’s 24 points and 9 rebounds also helped, Evan Fournier was not left out. The French scored 14 points, including 4 three-point shots, including a shot that allowed the Knicks to fly away (106-94) 4’52 from the end. Next meeting: in Cleveland this Monday.
