† Jaylen Hoard did not sign a 10-day contract with the Thunder for sightseeing. The Frenchman, who has been outstanding in the G-League in recent weeks, took the opportunity to stand out and play the best game of his NBA career with 24 points, 21 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals on 17/ 11 and the win against his former team. the Blazers. The former Wake Forest player was simply amazing, with constant dominance noticed by Portland coach Chauncey Billups.
“That boy, Jaylen Hoard, he had a great time. He won the whole game from all our players. We couldn’t do anything against him, you have to give him credit,” Billups said.
We hope the good momentum of the Team France member – the expanded group Blues – will continue into the final games of the NBA season. His place is not in the G-League, but at the highest level.
OKC didn’t exactly want to win this game, but especially the efforts of Jaylen Hoard and his comrade Olivier Sarr (double-double off the bench with 10 points, 12 rebounds) decided otherwise.

– It’s over and it’s not even a surprise, that’s the craziest thing or the saddest thing. The Los Angeles Lakers will not be playing in the playoffs or the play-in tournament this season, having assembled one of the flashiest and most expensive teams in NBA history. LA folded for Phoenix, but theoretically freewheeled, without LeBron Jamesbut with Anthony Davis (21 points, 13 rebounds). Devin Booker (32 points) and the Suns strayed and condemned the team they already knocked out in the first round last year.
If the Lakers are out, it’s also and mostly because their two competitors won the play-in. The Spurs had a nice shot in Denver and survived the huge game of Nikola Joki (41 points, 17 rebounds). But without Dejounte Murray, the Texans were admirably in the wake of Devin Vassell and Keldon Johnson (20 points each).
The Pelicans also didn’t back down and didn’t have to force themselves to dominate the Kings – the fanbase should be happy that their team’s loss is condemning the Lakers in payback mode for the past – and they too are sure to play in. CJ McCollum and Jaxson Hayes (both 23 points) were the most active.
† Rudy Gobert must have said to himself, “how come a Frenchman other than me is able to score at least 20 points by taking 20 rebounds in an NBA game?” The Jazz’s pivot scored the coup to help his team out of trouble by helping them beat Memphis at home. Gobert delivered a huge double-double (22 points, 21 rebounds) that allowed Utah to overtake Denver in 5th place for the time being. Kyle Anderson sent the game to overtime, but the Jazz regained the upper hand in overtime.
† Joel Embiid he was in the mood to try and influence the vote of the journalists for the title of MVP. Before Jokic scored his 41 points in the Denver loss, the Cameroonian had activated Titan mode so the Sixers could crush Indiana. With 45 points and 13 rebounds at 18/30 and “just” 10 times on the line, Embiid impressed. Will this be enough at the time of the vote? Just wait.
– Miami has secured and nearly secured its first place in the East by literally deboning Charlotte for a 5th straight win. Tyler Herro set the field on fire with 35 points off the bench, helped by Jimmy Butler (27 points), Bam Adebayo (22 pts) and even Duncan Robinson, who regained his sight after a bad spell (21 pts). With 144 points registered, which is more without overtime, the Heat took the second-best point total in NBA history.
– Toronto allowed itself to “jump” Chicago by taking advantage of the Bulls’ loss at home to Milwaukee (despite the 40 points from DeMar DeRozan, the Bucks didn’t shake for a second). The Raptors relied on the tandem Pascal Siakam (31 points, 13 rebounds, 6 wt.) – Scottie Barnes (19 points, 14 rebounds) to win and take 5th place.

Cleveland continues to suffer without Evan Mobley. The Cavs lost to Orlando, which remained on 6 consecutive losses. Despite Darius Garland’s 27 points and 10 assists, JB Bickerstaff’s group could not hold out and somehow clung to 7th place to maintain home advantage.
– Behind them, the Nets begin to increase the pressure again. Brooklyn renounced Houston, in particular thanks to a recital by Kyrie Irving (42 points, so 17 in the 4th quarter), whose heat stroke kept his team from bursting after squandering almost the entire 21-point lead. A win and an unfavorable exemption separate the Nets from Cleveland at this point.
– Wolves missed a golden opportunity to come back on a win or direct qualification to the play-offs. Minnesota lost at home to the freewheeling Wizards and will have to settle for the play-in tournament, with likely opposition to the Clippers. Kristaps Porzingis was productive again with Washington: 25 points in 27 minutes.
