The Cleveland Cavaliers once again defeated the Golden State Warriors (118-110), after a tough fight, on Saturday in the NBA, with the Milwaukee Bucks losing to the Orlando Magic (112-97). ).
Already beaten a week ago in Ohio, Stephen Curry's team was unable to take revenge at home in California and recorded a 4th defeat in 10 matches.
The Warriors leader certainly scored 30 points, crossing the 22,000 career mark, but he only delivered two assists. And Golden State was handicapped by the exclusion during the third quarter of Draymond Green, for a second technical foul after an altercation with Cavs star Donovan Mitchell.
The evening was also disappointing for Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Bucks, beaten in Orlando despite the “Greek freak”’s 35 points and 10 rebounds. Milwaukee was never able to recover from a failed first period, conceding 65 points.
“We have to do a better job defensively, collectively,” responded Bucks coach Adrian Griffin.
The two franchises are in the middle of the standings in the East, with a record of 5-4.
In this conference, Boston (7-2) put pressure on Philadelphia (7-1) by doing the job against Toronto (117-94), with 56 points from the Jayson Tatum-Jaylen Brown pair.
