denver-miami 113-96

An edgy match ends with the success of the Nuggets who now risk losing Jokic (triple double for him against the Heat). The Serbian center will almost certainly be disqualified after the reaction on Morris. At 2’39 ” from the siren, with the result now compromised, Morris nudges Jokic, who responds with a bad blow to the back of the Miami player. A turmoil emerges, the two players return prematurely to the locker room with spirits igniting. It is hard to think that there will be no consequences for both.

Carmelo Anthony thinks about it at the Staples Center this season seems infallible from long distance to lead the Lakers to victory over the Hornets. Melo closes with 29 points, shooting with 7/10 of three. Charlotte, after the encouraging start to the season, thus collects the fifth consecutive defeat.
