NBA Summary: Lillard triumphs with 11 triples, Celtics lose again and Nets are serious

With 11 triples of 17 attempts, Damian Lillard was the name in capital letters this Monday in the NBA in which the Boston Celtics reaped a new defeat and the Brooklyn Nets, increasingly established, they extended their excellent moment in the East.


With 38 points and an exceptional success from the perimeter (he already had 8 triples in the first half), Lillard melted down some Minnesota Timberwolves who could do little against the display of the Portland Trail Blazers star.

Rudy Gobert (16 points and 20 rebounds) was the master of the zone at Wolves.


The Boston Celtics added their second consecutive loss by clearly losing to the Los Angeles Clippers with their worst score of the course (the first time they have gone below 100 points).

Kawhi Leonard (25 points on 10 of 12 shooting, 9 rebounds and 6 assists), in his best performance since returning from his very serious injury, led a very choral Clippers while Jayson Tatum, despite his gray night, was the Boston’s top scorer (20 points and 11 rebounds).

WIZARDS 100 – NETS 112

With eight wins in nine games (only the Boston Celtics spoiled this winning streak), the Brooklyn Nets have picked up a run in recent weeks after a turbulent start to the season and this Monday they prolonged the crisis of some ruinous Washington Wizards who have accumulated seven straight losses.

Kevin Durant (30 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists) led the New Yorkers and Will Barton (22 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists) was the best of the capital.


Without Ja Morant in Memphis or Trae Young in Atlanta, the Grizzlies, who have won six straight, swept the Hawks with a great team effort in a game they were already winning by 31 points in the third quarter.

The Spanish Santi Aldama continued his great season and was the third leading scorer for the Grizzlies (16 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists) and De’Andre Hunter (19 points) was the benchmark for some Hawks without answers against the devastating 60, 2% on Memphis shots.


Luka Doncic stayed close to the triple-double (38 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists) and firmly set the pace for the Dallas Mavericks in their victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander matched his NBA career high with 42 points.


Something is moving in San Antonio. After eleven consecutive defeats, the Spurs have resurrected with three straight wins and tonight they beat the powerful Cleveland Cavaliers ‘in extremis’ thanks to a block in the last seconds from Keldon Johnson to Donovan Mitchell.

Josh Richardson (24 points) was the top scorer for the Spurs and Mitchell (28 points) led the Cavaliers who were very close to coming back from a game that trailed by 19 points in the third period.


In a rough game and superiority of the defenses (both teams fell below 30% in triples and 40% in field goals), the Miami Heat prevailed over the Indiana Pacers with 22 points and 17 rebounds from Bam Adebayo.

The Pacers, who turned around a game that was down 19 points in the second quarter but finally let the win slip away in the final quarter, were led by Buddy Hield with 19 points and 9 rebounds.
