Denver quits Utah series with Jokic XXL

2021-02-01T08:02:19.804Z

Nikola Jokic's Denver knocked down the team of the moment Utah on Sunday thanks to a personal best record tied by 47 points scored by the Serbian man of the day with Russell Westbrook who woke Washington, surprise winner from Brooklyn, deprived of James Harden.



Nuggets take the lead off the Jazz


A one-sided first half saw the Denver Nuggets put an end to the Utah Jazz's 11-game winning streak (128-117), the longest of the Championship season.

Of his 47 points, Jokic scored 33 in the middle of the game - 22 in the first quarter - and added 12 rebounds for his 20th double-double of the season.

In the wake of the Serbian, the Nuggets had almost folded the game at half-time with a lead of 25 points.

THE JOKER



20 games.

20 double-doubles.

"Right now, they're the best team in the NBA, they play amazingly, they've signed 11 straight wins, they have a lot of skill," Jokic said of Utah who had remained undefeated since the January 6.

"It's a great victory for us".

This loss of the Jazz, combined with the success of the Los Angeles Clippers (129-115) against the Knicks in New York, allows Kawhi Leonard's team to overtake Utah at the top of the Western Conference.

Victory of @Nuggets!

The Knicks do not resist the Clippers


At Madison Square Garden, Kawhi Leonard scored 28 points in the Los Angeles Clippers' victory over the Knicks (129-115).

The imposing New York defense, the most impervious in the league in terms of the number of points conceded per game, only held up half time.

After switching with one point in advance, the Clippers broke away in the third quarter.

The moment when Leonard and Reggie Jackson took matters into their own hands and each scored ten points.

Wizards wake up to Brooklyn


Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook were the driving force behind the Washington Wizards' 149-146 win over Brooklyn in a game between the league's top two scorers, Beal and Nets star Kevin Durant, which promised fireworks.

A three-point shot from Beal 8.1 seconds from the buzzer, allowed the Wizards to return to two points (146-144).

Then a new three-point basket from Westbrook four seconds later put Washington in front for the first time since the second quarter.

The victory was sealed by two free throws from Beal, author of 37 points with five rebounds and four assists.

"For now, all that matters is that we have a victory," retained, after four losses in a row, Westbrook, who collected 41 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.

Opposite, Durant's 37 points were not enough for the Nets, without James Harden - who was treating a contusion in his thigh.

In front of Brooklyn, second in the East, Philadelphia consolidated its leadership position with a 119-110 success with the Pacers.

In the other matches, Toronto beat Orlando 115-102 and Minnesota won 109-104 against Cleveland.
