NBA: 17th success in a row for the Suns, Golden State scorers

2021-12-01T06:24:15.989Z

Phoenix struck a big blow when it came to taking down the Warriors. The New York derby for the Nets and the Lakers won, without LeBron.



More than a victory.

Led by DeAndre Ayton (24 pts, 11 rbs) and Chris Paul (15 pts, 11 pds), the Suns disposed of Golden State last night, in Arizona (104-96).

End of series for the Warriors, who remained on seven successes.

Which Dubs cede the chair of the Western Conference leader to their tormentors in Phoenix, the two teams with the same record (18 wins, 3 losses), far ahead of Utah (14 wins, 7 losses).

Unhappy finalists last season, the Suns garner a 17th success in a row, a franchise record equaled.

A success in the form of a message to the rest of the League and to those who could doubt their ability to mix with the best: it will be necessary to reckon with the Arizona club.

Beaten in their three previous matches, CJ McCollum (28 pts) and the Trail Blazers, without Damian Lillard, have easily disposed of Detroit (110-92). 11 points for the Habs Killian Hayes and 26 for the number 1 of the last Draft, Cade Cunningham, from the Pistons who remain on seven losses. Toronto also bit the dust against the Grizzlies (91-98) of Jaren Jackson Jr. (25 pts).

Recall that "LBJ" has integrated the health protocol / Covid-19 of the NBA. His team tilts in any case in the positive with a record of 12 wins and 11 defeats. Good for eighth place in theWhere is.
