Atlanta and NOLA stay in the race, Pop and the Spurs on vacation

The results of the night in the NBA

hornets @ hawks : 103-132
tracks@ pelicans : 103-113

Still no surprise in the play-in tournament. After both teams’ victories at home yesterday – Minnesota and Brooklyn – logic was once again respected and home advantage played its part tonight.

Trae Young and the Hawks didn’t back down against Charlotte. The Hornets lasted for half a year before taking the stock. After a somewhat slow start, Young brought in second (24 points, 11 assists) to improve the effort of De’Andre Hunter (24 points), excellent after returning from the locker room.

LaMelo Ball (26 pts, 8 wt) tried his best but lacked skill (7/25). Charlotte sees her season end just like the previous one, after an immediate elimination during the play-in. A situation that has not been experienced well Miles Bridges, ejected at the end of the match and authored a gesture of humor towards a Hawks fan as he left the field. The Hornets winger’s mouthguard flew toward a young fan seated a few seats away. Bridges, who could sign a max contract this summer, promised to find the spectator to apologize to her.

In the next round, therefore, Atlanta will go one-shot to Cleveland to try to qualify 8th for the Miami Heat.

– Zion Williamson has to convince himself that good things are still to come for these pelicans and that his return next season will be worthwhile. The Pelicans overpowered Spurs at home in front of their young star, on their way back and fit enough to throw a few dunks into the warm-up. For now, New Orleans doesn’t need him. CJ McCollum (32 pts, 7 wt on 12/23) is the boss of this group and we saw him again last night, with a solid and efficient performance, to train his comrades, Brandon Ingram (27 pts) in the lead, in his wake.

NOLA was consistently in the lead, the only downside being a late-game slack that gave hope to San Antonio and their sniper Devin Vasell (23 points on 7/13).

Gregg Popovich is on vacation and the Pelicans are playing the rest of the play-in with a trip to the Clippers floor. One more small win and the Pelicans will definitely be heading in the right direction after an apocalyptic start to the season.
