ROME – Only two matches in the night Nba, which also saw Nicolò Melli on the floor in the New Orleans Pelicans shirt. Dragged by Brandon Ingram, J.J. Redick and Jrue Holiday, the boys of coach Gentry managed to break through Phoenix (124-121), climbing to 6 victories in 15 games. Success also for the Milwaukee Bucks of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who get rid of the Portland Trail Blazers (129-137), without the star Lillard, with some anxiety.

The games

A victory, the one against Portland, which projects the Bucks alone at the head of the Eastern Conference, with 12-3 of records against Boston's 11-3. The Blazers, with Carmelo Anthony in the quintet for his second outing, are forced to practically unpublished rotation: in addition to Lillard, out also the long-stay nurses Nurkic and Collins and the Whiteside center. There is therefore Trent jr in the quintet as play (not Simons at its best), with Tolliver 5 and McCollum forced to shoulder the full weight of the attack (37 points for him at the end of the evening with 15/29 from the field, 10 assists and 6 rebounds). Milwaukee starts better, closes the first quarter at 37-27 and always keeps a safe distance, without ever being able to completely sink the opponents. Triple double from 24 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists for Antetokounmpo (but with 27 shots from the field), great night for Bledsoe (30 points in 31 minutes) and four other men in double figures: Connaughton marks 18 from the bench, then DiVincenzo (16), Matthews (12) and Brook Lopez (10).

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Challenge between two teams decimated by absences also between New Orleans and Phoenix: Pelicans without Williamson, Favors, Okafor and Hart, Suns who must renounce, in addition to the disqualified Ayton, to the duo Rubio-Baynes. New Orleans took advantage of it in a decisive sprint game thanks to 15 points in the fourth quarter of Ingram (out of the total 28). Redick and Holiday combine for a total of 49 points, good also Melli with 9 points (2/3 from the bow), 5 rebounds, 3 assists and a stolen ball in just 21 minutes of use. To the Suns the 25 points of Oubre are not enough: Booker, forced to act as play shadow for the absence of Johnson, stops at 19 points with 7 assists (and six turnovers).
