The San Antonio Spurs suffered a significant 101: 134 defeat in the NBA on Wednesday (local time) against the LA Clippers. Jakob Pöltl from Vienna scored eight points, six rebounds, two assists and one block in 21:08 minutes of play. The two teams will meet again on Thursday (today).
The Texans were never in the lead in the duel with the Clippers and looked back after the first quarter with 29:41. In the end, the third consecutive defeat was in the league. “They had a good throwing hand right from the start,” Pöltl attested to the Californians, whose top scorer with Kawhi Leonard (25) was a former track. San Antonio was led by DeMar DeRozan, 19.
In the top game of the evening, NBA leader Utah Jazz outclassed the Brooklyn Nets, who competed without their “Big Three” Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, with 118: 88. The Salt Lake City team celebrated their 17th home win in a row.
For the eighth time in a row, the Milwaukee Bucks were successful at 121: 119 against the Boston Celtics. After a 25-point lead in the middle of the third section, they had to tremble a lot in the finish. The Phoenix Suns, placed second in the Western Conference, surprisingly lost 111: 112 at Orlando Magic.
