Prozingis tries to stop Janis, tonight
7 games were held tonight (between Monday and Tuesday) at the NBA when the focal point of Dallas's big win in Milwaukee interrupted the second consecutive history in the Bucks. Without the injured Luca Donchic, Proszingis took charge and swept his teammates to a convincing victory against the hottest team of the best league in the world.
Milwaukee - Dallas 120: 116
The host was 3 games away from breaking a club record but was arrested for a succession of 18 consecutive wins against the Mavericks who played without injured Luca Donchic. In the absence of the wonderful patient, Crisps Porzingis took command, and with a big block ahead of the finish gave the guest a prestigious victory. The Latvian finished with 26 points and 12 rebounds as Seth Kerry added 26 of his own. At Milwaukee, Janis as usual bombed and finished with 48 points plus 14 rebounds. Unfortunately his friends were in a weak game except for Kyle Korver who tried to help him and finished with 17 points.

Houston - San Antonio 107: 109
Last time the two teams met we witnessed the odd story of the season so far with James Harden's "Ghost Basket" as the Spurs then went down with the points. Tonight, on their home turf, Popovich and his players seemed to be on their way to victory when they were already leading by 25 points. Unfortunately, the Rockets have woken up and given a completely different second half than the first when they break a club record and manage to get out of the big lag. Russell Westbrook finished the night with 31 points and 10 rebounds as his teammate, Harden added 28. Marcus Oldridge finished as the Spurs' standout player with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
