Clippers outlive Luka Doncic, Atlanta surprises Philadelphia

Sunday’s NBA results

Atlanta Hawks @ Philadelphia Sixers: 128-124
Dallas Mavericks @ Los Angeles Clippers : 111-126

LA Clippers 4-3 Dallas Mavericks

– The Los Angeles Clippers became the 5th team in history to win a series where they fell 2-0 after losing the first two home games. This crazy series against the Mavs ended on Sunday with an electric game 7 that could have turned in both directions. Blame it on Luka Doncic, still fabulous, but not sufficiently helped at key moments by its partners.

The Slovenian genius, author of 46 points, 14 assists and 7 rebounds at 17/30, did everything in his power to tip the scales in favor of Dallas. But in the face, Kawhi Leonard was not in the mood to come out in the 1st round of the NBA playoffs. “The Klaw” released a very high level match while still being breathtaking in terms of address (28 pts, 10 rebounds, 9 pds at 10/15).

Leonard is the 4th player in NBA history to score at least 200 points on a series while shooting at least 60% at the same time. The most recent was a pivot, Shaquille O’Neal, with the Lakers in the 2000 NBA Finals series.

– Where Luka Doncic could not count on Kristaps Porzingis (16 pts, 11 rbds), whose stats are misleading and do not illustrate his difficulties in making the right choice at the right time, Kawhi received the support of his lieutenant Paul George (22 pts, 10 pds, 6 rbds), but also from contributors from the bench such as Terance Mann (13 pts) ou Luke Kennard (11 pts). The Clippers bench has also outclassed that of the Mavs (27-6).

Nicolas batum has also been talked about. By being excellent, already, thanks to an active copy (11 pts, 7 rebounds, 5 wt, 2 stls, 1 ctre) on both sides of the field in this role of offensive facilitator able to defend the lead behind. Then because he simply tried to put Boban Marjanovic on a poster, which says a lot about the confidence with which the captain of the France team is playing at the moment.

– Very beautiful moment that shared by Luka Doncic with the players of the Clippers, clearly impressed by what they saw from him in this series. FYI, the former Madrilenian offered his jersey to Paul George in the locker room.

Salute the almighty power of Luka Doncic, what he has just done is unique

Philadelphie 0-1 Atlanta

– It was not to believe that the Hawks would land in Philadelphia with the feeling of duty accomplished thanks to a qualification against the Knicks in the previous round. Bring young is still hungry and always wants to annoy opposing audiences with his talent. Atlanta won on the floor of Sixers not at all awake, taking the men of Doc Rivers by the throat from the start.

The Sixers never fully recovered from the huge torgnole taken in the first half (74-54 at the break), even if they severely reduced the gap at the end of the match. The presence of Joel Embiid (39 points, 9 rebounds), who may have been thought to be at rest due to his injury, hasn’t changed much of the main problem for Philly. No one was able to handle the wisp Bring young (35 points, 10 assists at 11/23), nor the impact of John Collins and Bogdan Bogdanovic, 21 points each.

The Serbian was not at all impressed by the atmosphere of the Wells Fargo Center, to which he mimed a “hush” which should earn him a warm welcome in two days.

– Trae Young and John Collins have often combined the useful with the pleasant.

– During the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, we will know if the defensive largesse of the Sixers, whose defense is however one of the great strengths, were only a small accident or if we must really be wary even more than expected Hawks …

Trae Young closes the show with a curtsy, Reggie Miller has an heir
