Oklahoma City paid for the absence of two players. The league’s leading scorer Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jalen Williams did not play in the game. Even without them, the guests led by 13 points, but the Sixers turned the tide in their favor in the last quarter thanks to Joel Embiid, who was shaking after nine weeks of knee surgery. In the end, he decided the game with free throws and gave a total of 24 points.

It wasn’t good. Go for a while, or I’ll get back into it and start watching again. But the main thing is that we won. I helped them a lot on defense, said Embiid, the most important game last night.

In Oklahoma City, Denver used Denver, which won the duel with San Antonio. The defending champion decided the match 110:105 in the last minute, Michael Porter hit a three-pointer 28 seconds before the end. The rescue was mainly a duel between two star pivots. On the Spurs side, young Frenchman Victor Wembanyama did his best to stop Nikola Jokie. In total, he collected 23 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists and nine blocks, but the Serbian pivot was ultimately better.

Michael Porter Jr. from Denver, the brno dog of Victor Wembanyam from San Antonio was born.

He filed a motion. I even had to laugh to avoid his blocks, which he had about 600 today. But in the end we won, declared Joki. Bn doesn’t laugh anymore, but on Tuesday he immediately hung a ticker in my mouth.

Close behind Denver is Minnesota, who faced Houston and lost one game, but they have a good record. Houston has lost the second straight and is moving away from the first round of the playoffs. On the eleventh place, Golden State, which won 104:100 over Dallas and won five in a row, lost in ten games. Even Luke Donia’s triple double for 30 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists did not help Dallas extend its seven game streak.

Milwaukee complicated the fight for second place in the Eastern Conference table when, without Damian Lillard in the lineup, they surprisingly lost to the second-worst team, Washington, 113:117. Janis Adetokunbo’s 35 points didn’t help the Bucks either. In second place, they have just one win over Cleveland, who beat Utah 129:113.
