Golden State continues to win and is confirmed as the best team in the Western Conference. The continuity of Steve Kerr’s men begins to be impressive. Determinants Jordan Poole and the “usual” Steph Curry. On the other hand, the Utah Jazz fell unexpectedly in Orlando, as did the New York Knicks at home against Cleveland. Spaniard Ricky Rubio made an amazing performance, signing the maximum in his career with 37 points and scoring a sensational 8/9 from three points. Success in comeback, yet another of the season, of the Clippers, who close the 4th period with a partial 22-0 and overtake the Charlotte Hornets at the Staples Center. Finally, the victories of Indiana and Oklahoma City against Sacramento and San Antonio respectively.

Golden State Warriors- Houston Rockets 120-107

Fourth win in a row and best record of the NBA for the Golden State Warriors (8-1) who overtake the Houston Rockets (1-9) at the Chase Center and remain at the top of the Western Conference. The Dubs played as always at a thousand per hour and faced a team that accepted his rhythms but failed to carry them forward with continuity. The 3rd period was the key to the game, with a 15-0 run that allowed the Warriors to build a 20-point lead that conditioned the rest of the game. Golden State basketball is airy and inspired, intense in defense (21 turnovers for the Rockets), consistent and pounding in attack (36 points in fast break situations, 31 team assists and 51.8% from the field), with Jordan Poole ( 25 points), Stephen Curry (20 points) and Draymond Green (9 assists) to dictate the rhythms. Excellent, once again the contribution of the Dubs bench with Otto Porter Jr. (15 points with 5/7 of three, 9 rebounds and 2 steals) to take the scene, followed by the less and less surprising (positive) Gary Payton Jr. (10 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals). Good performance of the Rockets, almost always on the piece but too fragile and inexperienced to hide their limits in the moment of greatest technical suffering.

Golden State:Poole 25 (7/13, 2/7 of three, 9/9 tl), Curry 20, Wiggins 16. Rebounds: Porter Jr. 9. Assists: Green 9.

Houston:Tate 21 (7/11, 2/4 from three, 5/9 tl), Theis 14, Sengun 12. Bounces: Tate 10. Assist: Porter Jr. 7.

Orlando Magic- Utah Jazz 107-100

Great performance of the Orlando Magic (3-8) who play a crazy fourth period and surprise at home the Utah Jazz (7-3), defeated for the second time (after Miami) in their trip to Florida. The drivers for the hosts were Cole Anthony, protagonist with 33 points (10 in the 4th period), and Wendell Carter Jr. with 22 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists in 32 ‘. Down by 8 points at the start of the last quarter (89-81), the Magic found unexpected resources to stretch their hands on the game, also pushed by RJ Hampton’s 8 points, excellent at preserving himself until the crucial moment of the match. Orlando wanted it more than Utah and this is, perhaps, the real news. The Jazz have disappointed in terms of performance, too disunited in the final and conditioned by a terrible 8/42 (19%) in the three-point shot. The 21 each of Donovan Mitchell (plus 7 rebounds and 7 assists) and Rudy Gobert (plus 15 rebounds, 3 steals and 4 blocks) are useless. Florida bad for the boys of coach Quin Snyder.

Orlando:Anthony 33 (13/20, 5/10 da tre, 2/2 tl), Carter Jr. 22, Wagner 10. Rimbalzi: Carter Jr. 15. Assist: Carter Jr. 6.

Utah: Mitchell 21 (8/24, 2/12 from three, 3/3 tl), Gobert 21, O’Neale 14. Bounces: Gobert 15. Assist: Mitchell 7.

New York Knicks- Cleveland Cavaliers 109-126

Cleveland (7-4) conquers Madison Square Garden in style, beats the Knicks (6-4) thanks to an extraordinary performance by Ricky Rubio and takes the 7th victory of the season. The Spanish playmaker did wonderful things on the New York court, making every play seem easy. Rubio on the pitch is one of those players who exudes basketball intelligence, remarkable fundamentals and technical quality every time he gets involved in the action. His 37-point test (career maximum) with 8/9 three-point points and 10 assists in 31 ‘will be among the symbolic matches of his basketball history. Cleveland won with a second half as a real team, exalting himself with shooting percentages above 50%, 31 team assists and a concrete rebound domination (48-32). Once again, the contribution of the long starters was splendid, with Evan Mobley (26 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists) and Jarrett Allen (18 points and 17 rebounds) controlling the operations under the basket. The only discordant note of the Cleveland match, the left knee problem that forced Collin Sexton to just 13 ‘on the court. His condition will be evaluated in the next few hours. New York, devoid of Kemba Walker, blocked the 3rd quarter (33-18) and slammed into a 9/31 from the arc that limited the offensive turnover. Too many the 126 points awarded to the opponents.

New York: Randle 19 (7/17, 1/5 da tre, 4/5 tl), Rose 17, Fournier 15. Rimbalzi: Randle 7. Assist: Randle 7.

Cleveland:Rubio 37 (13/19, 8/9 from three, 3/3 tl), Mobley 26, Allen 18. Rebounds: Allen 17. Assists: Rubio 10.

Sacramento Kings- Indiana Pacers 91-94

The Indiana Pacers (4-7) win for the first time in Sacramento (5-5) since 2018 with 22 points from Caris LeVert and a double double from Domantas Sabonis (17 points and 10 rebounds). A game that saw Rick Carlisle’s men also go above 15 points in the 3rd quarter but which then brought the Kings back into play, never dominated and very determined. Score crystallized on the 93-91 Pacers in the last minute and a half almost until the siren, consolidated by the free kick scored by TJ McConnell (18 points) and by the subsequent turnout by De’Aaron Fox (17 points). For Indiana, very good performances by rookie Chris Duarte (15 points, 6/12 from the field) and Myles Turner, author of 12 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocks.

Sacramento:Barnes 22 (6/15, 1/6 of three, 9/11 tl), Fox 17, Haliburton 17. Rebounds: Holmes 9. Assists: Mitchell 6.

Indiana:LeVert 22 (9/22, 1/5 of three, 3/4 tl), McConnell 18, Sabonis 17. Rebounds: Turner 15. Assists: McConnell 4.

Los Angeles Clippers- Charlotte Hornets 120-106

6 ‘from the siren the Clippers (5-4) were down 102-93. Then the team of coach Tyronn Lue managed to produce a run of 22-0 to make up the gap and wipe out the Charlotte Hornets (5-6) from the field and give themselves the fourth victory in a row. A typical “Clippers” performance, full of contradictions, important plays and twists. Six players in double figures, with Paul George (20 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists) and Reggie Jackson (19 points and 6 assists) struggling in the three-point shot (5/21 combined from the arc) and Terance Mann (17 points and 10 rebounds) and Luke Kennard (18 points, 6/11 from three) to give continuous energy from the bench. It didn’t take Charlotte in 42 combined points from LaMelo Ball and Miles Bridges to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat.

The Angels: George 20 (9/22, 2/10 from three), Jackson 19, Kennard 18. Rebounds: Zubac 11. Assist: George 8.

Charlotte:Ball 21 (8/19, 2/5 from three, 3/3 tl), Bridges 21, Rozier 17. Bounces: Rozier 8. Assist: Bridges 6.

Oklahoma City Thunder- San Antonio Spurs 99-94

The Thunder (3-6) come back from -16 and beat the San Antonio Spurs (3-7) at home thanks to a 3rd period of great depth and a strong-willed attitude always aimed at getting out of the difficulty with concrete ideas, never fruit of randomness. Mike Daigneault’s guys will have won a few so far but the desire and the contents are always there, for those who can glimpse them, game after game. The 34-14 with which Okc won in the 3rd quarter is the symbol of this success, legitimized by the resistance to the return of San Antonio, who wanted to win it but came short in the final with a missed basket by Lonnie Walker. The Thunder’s top scorer was Mike Muscala, 20 points in 14 ‘off the bench. Double doubles, however, for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with 14 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists and for Darius Bazley with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Difficult evening at Spurs for Dejounte Murray (5/19 shooting), Devin Vassell (3/12, 0/5 from three) and Derrick White (0/10).

OKC: Muscala 20 (5/6, 3/4 da tre, 7/9 tl), Gilgeous-Alexander 14, Dort / Robinson-Earl 13. Rimbalzi: Bazley 11. Assist: Gilgeous-Alexander 9.

San Antonio:Johnson 22 (9/16, 0/1 da tre, 4/4 tl), Walker IV 15, Eubanks 14. Rimbalzi: Eubanks 11. Assist: Murray 9.
