the very extent of The victory won by the Philadelphia Sixers face the Detroit Pistons (114-78) has allowed Timothy Luwawu-Cabarrot to get a playing time (18 minutes), which had not happened to him since Christmas. The full-back played the entire last quarter. A “garbage time” extension, which has, however, enabled the French to value, as he has scored over half the points of his team in one quarter (10 out of 17, 4/7 shooting). In the end, “TLC” has made a beautiful copy with 13 points (5/8-3/4 three-point), 2 rebounds and 4 assists for a single lost ball. A match that should give him confidence after three matches were disappointing.
on The side of San Antonio, Tony Parker and Joffrey Auvergne have made their contribution during the victory at home against the Phoenix Suns (103-89). Without really weigh in scoring (4 pts for 2/4), Tony Parker has managed to play its partners (7 assists). Only downside : his 3 turnovers. The interior would have been able to spend a dirty night since it joined the dressing room three minutes from the break after a clash nose against head with Marquese Chriss. Back on the bench in the middle of the third quarter, he even got 7 minutes of play in the last quarter. In the end, he scored 3 points for 6 rebounds in 15 minutes.
Nicolas Batum has delivered a game similar to that of Tony Parker for the Charlotte Hornets, winners at the Staples Center Los Angeles Lakers (108-94). More smuggler (7 assists) as marker (4 pts on 2/9), the winger has added 3 rebounds to his line of statistics, leaving its partners and the collective group of Hornets (6 players at 12 points or more) make the difference.
Well installed in his pivotal role, replacing regular Marcin Gortat, Ian Mahinmi has shown a good presence in rebounding on the trading floor of the Memphis Grizzlies (win 102-100 to Washingont). In 17 minutes, Mahinmi has picked up 9 rebounds, including 3 offensive, 4 points (1/3 fg) and 2 assists. There is always this problem of faults (5) which sometimes deprives them of additional play time.
Gershon Yabusele he played just four minutes in the victory for Boston against Minnesota (91-84). The time to put back a missed shot into the basket (2 pts, 1 rb), but also to lose a ball, in the second quarter.
The New York Knicks are in a bad state (7 defeats in 8 matches) and Frank Ntilikina continues to alternate good and less good. Yet credited with 25 minutes of play at Miami (lost 107-103, a. p.), the leader of the game was clumsy (2 pts on 0/3), but it has managed to compensate by finding his teammates (4 assists). It has often been sanctioned in defence (5 fouls). His first three matches of the 2018 (4.0 pts to 28.6%) have not confirmed the improvement in December (7,5 pts 38.4%).
