With a 111-93 victory over the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, the San Antonio Spurs returned to winning ways on Friday (local time) after losing five straight in the NBA.
Jakob Pjolt recorded 15 points and ten rebounds in his asset and thus became a double-double for the fifth time in the game year. The four blocks are his personal best this season, with three assists in 29:47 rounding out the 27-year-old from Vienna.
The best team in the league came to San Antonio with many substitutions. Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is Milwaukee’s most glaring absence.
The recent shock Spurs are capitalizing on this fact. From eleven minutes to 28:26, they did not relinquish the lead. Keldon Johnson scores 29 points for the Texans, Devin Vassell – 22.
Another bankruptcy of “Lakers”.
The defending champion Golden State Warriors, Piolt and co., are coming off a 106-101 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday in San Francisco. Stephen Curry scored 40 points.
Another disappointment is experienced by the Los Angeles Lakers, who have to do without LeBron James. The 114-120 loss against the Sacramento Kings was their tenth loss in twelfth games of the season.
