The supposed top team of the East against the currently best team of the West. On Tuesday evening (local time), two heavyweights met with each other in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn — with the clear winner from San Francisco. The Golden State Warriors prevailed after a well-balanced first half at the end of 117: 99 at the Nets.
Also, the encounter between Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, once teammates and now MVP favorites found a clear winner. Durant brought only six out of 19 litters for 19 points in the basket, curry, on the other hand, once again became the man of the evening with 37 meters. The two MVP sank alone nine of 14 threes.
Golden State is now still at a 12-2 balance at the top of Western Conference, Brooklyn had to accept the fifth season defeat (balance sheet 10: 5) after three wins in a row.
76ers slides always further — PG as an MVP candidate?
For the Philadelphia 76ers, it set the fifth bankruptcy in a row — and what kind of. The co-favorite on the crown in the east cashed without the continued to Corona Superstar Joel Embed a crashing 85: 120 at Utah Jazz. After a 6-0 run, the Mixers always slip on.
Incidentally, Paul George is also allowed to have the MVP title. The 31-year-old led his clippers with 34 meters to the eighth victory from the last ten games. At the 106: 92 against the San Antonio Spurs, the German-American Isaiah Hammerstein was also allowed to show, he sank all three litters for a total of seven counters.
