Kevin Durant, the star of the Phoenix Suns, entered the league in tenth place in scoring. By scoring 30 points against the Phoenix Suns, the 35-year-old brought his total to 27,423 points, surpassing former center Moses Malone (27,409), a three-time MVP (most valuable player) in 1979, 1982 and 1983. Despite their winger's performance, it was the Suns, unbeatable at home this season but who know how to travel, who won 119-110.

Orlando makes it 9

While they had to make short work of the depleted 76ers, the Boston Celtics, leaders of the Eastern Conference, struggled at home to win 125-119 against Philadelphia. The visitors were missing 2023 MVP Joel Embiid, point guard Tyrese Maxey and Frenchman Nicolas Batum. Faced with the great collective effort of the 76ers (seven players with more than 10 points), the Celtics showed nervousness, especially their guard Jayson Tatum (21 points), who was ejected during the third quarter for a second technical foul for a contest.

Orlando, second in the East, won its 9th straight game, tying the franchise record, against Washington (130-125) with 31 points from Franz Wagner and 28 from Paolo Banchero. "It's not the end of the day, obviously, but it shows how hard we've worked, the chemistry we've been able to create in the team," Banchero said.
