A super match by Danilo Gallinari propelled the Atlanta Hawks to victory against the Phoenix Suns, second in the standings in the east.
The show was not lacking in tonight's shift in the NBA, with the blue champion in great evidence.
For him a personal of 16 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists, in the success of Atlanta with the clear score of 135-103 on one of the dominating teams of the season.
In the high-ranking areas to the west, the Nuggets' march continues, tonight 113-97 winners over the New York Knicks, a success that is worth third place in the company of the Clippers.
In the playoff key important victories for Portland and Memphis, respectively over the Cavs (141-105) and the Timberwolves (139-135).
Now the two teams occupy the last two useful places of the Western to continue the season.
Another slip instead for the San Antonio Spurs, beaten by Utah Jazz for 126-94 and now in tenth position, behind the Warriors and therefore out of the playoffs.
In the other games, the Bucks' narrow victory over the Wizards for 135-134, at the end of a spectacular match full of twists, should be noted.
Bradley Beal's 42 points and Russell Westbrook's triple double (29 points, 17 assists, 12 rebounds) were not enough for the Washington team to avoid the defeat that confirms a disappointing tenth place in the standings in the east, behind the Indiana Pacers they too ko, at the hands of the Kings 104-93.
