Westbrook is ahead of Davis. The hot star of Houston
LA Lakers - Houston 121: 111. What happens in the evening when monsters of personal numbers meet each other? Exactly what you think, they explode on the field until only one is left standing.
This time it was a meeting between Russell Westbrook in the Rockets uniform and LeBron James, on the evening when the Lakers star was effective, but also played a second violin to the wonderful Anthony Davis.
Each side tried to make muscle, show who was in control of the field, and after a tight game came Houston's fatal 0: 9 run that eliminated the disappointed hostess.
Westbrook was the man of the match, as he threw 41 points on the Lakers head. He also added 8 rebounds and 5 assists to help him get close to the top ten of assists kings of all time.
Westbrook, a mediocre midfielder by James Harden (14 points), also tried his name on Davis, who led the Lakers with 32 points, and received much help from LeBron. But although the latter scored 18 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and handed out 9 assists, the guest's hand was on top.
Milwaukee - Philadelphia 101: 112. The Bucks' 44th win of the season (against 7 losses overall) was a sign of the strength of the Janis Antocompo legend.
And why a legend? Well, although the Greek is at the beginning of his career, the tremendous numbers he writes every night make him one, at least potentially.

Facing a slightly slack Sixers, Janis recorded at least 30 points on the fifth consecutive evening and at least 20 rebounds and at least 5 assists. He scored 36 points, grabbed 20 rebounds and handed 6 assists, to be the first since Willet Chamberlain to record such a streak. As mentioned, a legend.
Tobias Harris led the losers with 25 points, and Philly needs to think, because despite a battery of talents, the character of the team is soft, and tonight was her fourth straight loss.
Chicago - New Orleans 125: 119. With excellent percentages off the field, Zayun Williamson continues to demonstrate the ability of the NBA star. This time, he scored 21 points (82%) in order to beat Felicans victory.
However, in the first half of New Orleans's lead in the first half, she dropped her gear too early and got in trouble until she overpowered the Bulls, who led Zach Lewin with 22 points.
