National basketball player Moritz Wagner beat the next top NBA team with his Orlando Magic.
After defeating the Dallas Mavericks, Orlando also defeated the Phoenix Suns 114-97. Wagner played well, scoring 17 points and grabbing six rebounds. It was the fourth victory of the Florida team in the 13th game of the season.
Isiah Hartenstein also scored for the New York Knicks on Friday. In a 121-112 win over the Detroit Pistons, the German center grabbed 12 rebounds and scored six points in the Knicks’ sixth straight victory.
The Los Angeles Lakers are still in deep crisis and are still without Germany captain Dennis Schröder. Superstar LeBron James was also absent in the 114-120 loss against the Sacramento Kings. The Lakers suffered their 10th loss with just two wins and are in last place in the West.
Bucks lose to Spurs
“Milwaukee Bucks” could not make up for the loss of their exceptional player Giannis Antetokounmpo this time and lost to San Antonio Spurs with a score of 98:111. With ten wins and two losses, the Bucks remain the best team in the NBA.
The Golden State Warriors could once again count on Stephen Curry, the superstar leading the champions to a 106-101 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Curry scored 40 points, 16 in the final quarter and 10 in the final 78 seconds. It was the Warriors’ second straight win and just their fifth overall.
