Two days after being surprised at the TD Garden by Miami, Boston showed a reaction as immediate as it was authoritarian, at the Nets in progress after a laborious start to the championship, and somewhat intoxicated by their series of four victories in a row.

The C's have therefore worked to bring them back to reality, that of a conference for the time being completely dominated by the finalist of the last exercise, with a record of 19 wins against 5 losses.

As images to symbolize this state of affairs, those of Brown (34 pts, 10 rebounds, 4 blocks) and Tatum (29 pts, 11 rebounds), muzzling Kevin Durant, until stealing the ball from him in turn in the space of 48 seconds in the money-time.

“KD” however did not deserve (31 pts, 7 rebounds, 5 assists), but the aggressive defense on his overcoat pushed him to commit eight ball losses.

As unusual for him as prohibitive for his team at the end of the meeting where Kyrie Irving hardly weighed (18 pts, 8 rebounds).

22/30 on shots

Enough to unscrew the Nets in 8th place (13-12), two rows ahead of the Knicks, who remained on four defeats in five games and revived at the expense of Cleveland (92-81), at Madison Square Garden, where the Cavs (3rd) were punished by their clumsiness (34.9% shooting success), under the eyes of Evan Fournier still unused.

Meanwhile, Anthony Davis continued to walk on water in Washington, two days after his 44 points scored in Milwaukee, where he won a titanic duel against Giannis Antetokounmpo (40 pts).

With formidable efficiency (22/30 in shots), he finished four units from his personal best (59 pts in 2016, with New Orleans against Detroit), adding 15 rebounds and three blocks to his pocket.

In his shadow, but not too much all the same, LeBron James contributed greatly (29 pts, 8 rebounds, 6 assists), against Wizards deprived of Bradley Beal injured and who counted up to 29 lengths behind before closer to nine units in the last quarter, in the wake of Kristaps Porzingis (27 pts).

I feel really good, confident in shooting, and with great pace

,” reacted the 29-year-old All Star.

The Lakers, finally reborn after a gloomy start to the season, have an 8th success in 10 matches, which however keeps them in 12th position in the West, proof that the road to the play-offs is still very long.

Alvarado untenable

If at the top of the conference, the leader Phoenix easily won in San Antonio (133-95) his seventh victory in eight matches, thanks to Deandre Ayton (25 pts at 10/14, 10 rebounds), his dolphin now finds himself to be New Orleans.

The Pelicans, carried by the hot substitute Jose Alvarado author of 38 points, 8/11 from long distance, took second place by beating Denver (121-106).

The 24-year-old American-Puerto Rican, whose fierce fighting spirit in defense makes him a permanent poison for the opponent, changed the course of a game that started badly for New Orleans, trailing by 14 lengths in the first quarter. , until he entered the floor.

He then scored the next eight points for his team, which was immediately revived.

Zion Williamson brought 25 points (9/17, 6 rebounds) which also contributed to the success of his young and talented formation.

Opposite, Nikola Jokic multiplied (32 pts, 16 rebounds, 9 assists), but the reigning double MVP was the only one to float with the Nuggets 3rd, with the same record (14-9) as Memphis, winner at Detroit (122-112).

Ja Morant was dominant (33 pts, 10 assists) against the Pistons where Killian Hayes was unsuccessfully activated (13 pts, 6 assists, 2 blocks).
