NBA: Dallas Mavericks stolpern in Houston

The Dallas Mavericks made a slip up at the Houston Rockets and played one of the weakest games of the season. The Boston Celtics fight the New York Knicks in an exciting game.

The Boston Celtics win a highly competitive game against the New York Knicks while Bradley Beal returns to the Wizards.

Indiana Pacers (23-27) – Minnesota Timberwolves (13-39) 141:137 (BOXSCORE)

  • It’s almost the same old story with the Timberwolves, they just wake up too late. The guests hibernated three quarters of the time against injury-ridden Pacers, again the push came too late in the final section. A three-point game by D’Angelo Russell (17, 5/15 FG) had brought the Wolves back to three points 50 seconds before the end, but then TJ McConnell struck.
  • The Pacers point guard was the outstanding man on the field with 19 points (9/12 FG) and 15 assists and hit a completely open three from the corner after the D-Lo-And-1 with the clock running out, which was the decision . Caris LeVert and Aaron Holiday then brought the game home from the free throw line.
  • Indiana had to do without its three best players in Malcolm Brogdon (hip), Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner (both ankles), but caught this as a collective. Seven players scored double digits, including the two Holiday brothers Justin (21, 5/8 threesomes) and Aaron (22, 4/4 threesomes). The two bigs Goga Bitadze (14) and JaKarr Sampson (16) also did a good job, Caris LeVert contributed 18 points to the victory.
  • Minnesota was still 22 points behind in the second half, even in the fourth quarter it was 15. The comeback followed thanks to Anthony Edwards, who made a terrible game before but then 17 of his 27 points (11/21 FG) in the last scored twelve minutes. Karl-Anthony Towns (32, 12/17 FG, 12 rebounds, 6 assists) collected the most points, his backup Naz Reid (16) got the highlight of the game with this crashing dunk.
  • Finally, a nugget from the Timberwolves broadcast, which is always good: Edwards has 5 boxouts this season – over the entire season. That actually seems completely impossible.
