Mitchell scored 20 of his 45 points in the final quarter. He made six triples in the game. Garius Garland, who started after injury for the first time since mid-December, scored 19 points in 20 minutes.

The Cavaliers have won 11 of their past 12 games and have the best record in the competition (16-4) over the last month and a half. At the same time, their starting five met only in the twelfth game of the season. Two days earlier, center Evan Mobley returned after missing 21 games with a knee injury.

“It’s great to have them both back. Now we have to build on that because we have a broad and talented team, so it is necessary to find a way forward together,” said Mitchell. His teammate Jarrett Allen posted a club record 16th straight double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Italian Danilo Gallinari led the guests with 20 points.

Basketball players took Miami

Miami snapped its longest losing streak since the 2007/08 season, led by Butler, who converted 10 of 14 shots. Josh Richardson added 24 points, Bam Adebayo had 16 points and 11 rebounds.

“We constantly reminded ourselves how lucky we are to be able to play basketball as a profession, and in front of such great fans. It got away from us for a while, but it could have been worse,” Butler said of Miami’s black streak.

Even 33 points, including seven triples by Keegan Murray or a triple double by Domantas Sabonis for 19 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists, were not valid for the guests.

Kevin Durant returned to Brooklyn for the first time nearly a year after being traded to Phoenix and contributed 33 points in a 136-120 victory over his former team. Jusuf Nurkič scored 28 points and collected 11 rebounds. Cam Thomas scored 25 points for the Nets.

“I like to silence the audience. Even though I like these people, I’ll still be happy to shut them up,” he said. “He played for the team. He had eight assists and made other plays where he helped his teammates score. Great performance,” Phoenix coach Frank Vogel praised Durant.

Suns pivot Jusuf Nurkic scored 28 points and 11 rebounds. Cam Thomas scored 25 points for the Nets.

Damian Lillard also experienced a recent return to his place of work, who was welcomed in Portland with a long standing ovation. The soon-to-be eight-time All-Star asked for a trade last summer after 11 seasons with the Blazers and left for Milwaukee in September, with whom they lost 116-119 on Wednesday. With 25 points, he was the second best scorer of the guests after Janis Adetokunbo, who gave two more points.

Lillard said that he had a lot of strange feelings about the first visit to the hall in Portland. “Even though I knew I was going to play here as an opponent. In the morning I went to my house, took my son to school. One would almost forget that he is playing outside,” he said.

Even without Nikola Jokic, who is suffering from a sore back, Denver led by up to 13 points in Oklahoma City, but eventually lost 100:105. The defending champions did not stop Shaie Gilgeous-Alexander, who collected 34 points.

Dallas, without Luka Dončič, who has an injured ankle, lost unequivocally 87:121 on the field of Minnesota. He lost the third part 22:31 and the fourth overwhelmingly 17:38. The leader of the winners was Karl-Anthony Towns with 29 points. Even without the injured Paul George, the Los Angeles Clippers won in Washington 125:109.
