Despite 55 Durant points: Nets miss direct play-off
Durant reach 55 points, and Kyrie Irving also caught a good day with 31 points. But she could not make up for the weak performance of her teammates. The NETs enabled Hawks equal to 49 free throws, 37 of which have been transformed.
“I’m angry about this defeat. I have hit well, but would rather have gone with the victory from the hall by simply doing little things,” Durant said. He is in the current season to TeamKollege Irving, Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota / both 60), Trae Young (Atlanta) and LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers / Both 56) already the fifth player with at least 55 points in a game. In 2021/22, a pro reached the 50-point brand – in the entire season 2020/21 this happened 14 times. Since 1962, the NBA record has been holding the legendary Wilt Chamberlain with fabulous 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors.
Title candidate Brooklyn is located on four outgoing games only in ten of the Eastern Conference and must fight after the second defeat in a row in the “Play-in-Tournament” around the play-off ticket.
The same way will have to take the Charlotte Hornets. She lost in the comeback of Gordon Hayward clearly with 114: 144 against the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers where Joel Embid was with 29 points of the best thrower, giving the chance for better placement. Currently they are only two victories behind leader Miami Heat, who won with 127: 109 against Chicago Bulls.
Golden state in the play-offs
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Utah Jazz with 111: 107 thanks to a Klay-Thompson show (8 threesome) and thus secured a place in the play-offs and the opportunity to gain home the home right in the first round of PostSeason. The Warriors had fought back after a meantime 21-point residue.
These teams are already fixed for the play-offs
