Nba: Brooklyn affonda i Bulls, vince anche Miami – Basket

The Brooklyn Nets beat the Bulls 138-112 in Chicago in the most anticipated game of the nine games played last night in the NBA, the one that pitted the Eastern Conference captains into a showdown. The Nets had Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving on the field together, a trio of superstars who didn’t disappoint. Durant scored 27 points, Harden 25 points, 16 assists and Irving’s nine in his third game of the season. The Bulls, trailing by two points in the first half, tied 71-71 at the start of the third, but were crushed by the nets then who flew to 101-79 at the end of the third quarter and the match was over. Miami, who finished third in the East behind the Nets, held out with a 115-91 victory over the Hawks in Atlanta. Hero led the Heat with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but he was only one of seven visiting players to hit double digits. Across the US, the Sacramento Kings scored 40 points in the third quarter to finally defeat the LeBron James Lakers 125-116. All five Kings holders went in double digits, with Fox led by 29 points. The Lakers were leading 76-68 early in the third inning before the Kings reacted badly and James’ 34 points weren’t enough for the Los Angeles team as Westbrook scored just eight. The New York Knicks beat the Dallas Mavericks 108-85, which came from six straight wins but this time Luka Doncic and his teammates had wet powders, with poor shooting percentages, with only eight baskets from 37 three-point attempts. The Boston Celtics shrugged off their recent away problems – six losses in a row – with a 119-100 win over the Pacers in Indianapolis.
