And four for the Toronto Raptors
Faced with Memphis Grizzlies who remained on six wins in a row, the Toronto Raptors did not shake (120-105) enjoying a fourth consecutive success on their side. The Canadian team was well led by its rear duo, Kyle Lowry accumulating twenty-nine points and eight assists while DeMar DeRozan brought in twenty-four points. The final gap is not representative of the game played in front of tennis player Milos Raonic. Despite only nine players lined up, the Grizzlies sold their skin dearly before cracking in the fourth quarter under the impetus of a trio Lowry-DeMarre Carroll-Corry Joseph, authors of seven points each in this period.
Detroit also exports to Boston
The victory of Detroit in Charlotte on Tuesday surprised (112-89), but the Pistons confirmed their good dynamics by imposing on the floor of the Boston Celtics (121-114). “Given our problems outside, what we have proposed two nights in a row against teams over 50% of victories, which have good players is a great victory,” said Stan Van Gundy, Coach of Detroit. The Michigan team mostly offered a perfectly balanced performance between its five titles: Ish Smith scored nineteen points; Marcus Morris and Andre Drummond, twenty each; Tobias Harris, twenty-one and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope twenty-five. Drummond added seventeen rebounds, allowing the Pistons to dominate widely in this area, fifty two takes thirty-three for the Celtics. The key statistic of the match with the 55% success of the shooting of the visitors.
