The Denver Nuggets have twice made a comeback

The Denver Nuggets became the first team in history to have twice made a comeback, losing 1-3 in a play-off. They returned to the Western final after 11 years of absence. In NBA history, there have been nine teams ahead of Denver Nuggets coming upstream when they were 1 to 3 in the play-offs. The Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets have done it twice but in two different seasons.

In the Western NBA Finals, the Denver Nuggets met another Los Angeles city representative, the Lakers. Before that, LeBron James and his teammates defeated the Houston Rockets 4-1 in the semifinals of the region and brought the Lakers back to the fourth round of the strongest team after 10 years. This series starts on the morning of September 19.

Tyler Herro was the substitute to score the most points for Heat with 11 points, including three important long shots at the end of the fourth and extra time, but failed to help the home team win.

The Milwaukee Bucks will have to win all three next games to reach the East Final, while the Miami Heat only needs one more win. None of the teams that were led 0-3 have won backward in the NBA play-off.

Doncic failed to save the Mavericks in the NBA play-off

Young star Luka Doncic shined in the NBA play-off first round series, but the Dallas Mavericks still lost to the Los Angeles Clippers with a 2-4 aggregate score.

Mavericks – Clippers are the most intense matchups

In the series of seven wins four matches, almost every match played by players from both teams is not good. Game 6 on August 31 is no exception. Luka Doncic (no.77), while in the basket, was deliberately fouled by Marcus Morris from behind.

Luka Doncic is among NBA players with great height and scoring ability. He is not a hot-tempered player, but this time the 21-year-old Slovenian defender could not control. A fight could have happened, if neither the players nor the coaching staff were discouraged.

Morris was disqualified for a level 2 foul

This was the second consecutive match, the Clippers’ player defeated Doncic. In game 5, he deliberately stepped on the painful leg of the Mavericks star.

In game 6, Doncic still proved the leading role of the Mavericks, with 38 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds, a 53.6% successful finish rate. But in terms of force, Dallas representative inferior to the Clippers.

In the series, Doncic averaged 31 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game. The memorable highlight is the shine in game 4 with 43 points, including the three-point buzzer-beater that helped the Mavericks win 135-133 after extra time, equalizing the total score 2-2. Doncic triple-doubles in two consecutive NBA play-offs, becoming the third player in history to have over 40 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists in a play-off match.

Before coming to the NBA, Doncic played for the Real Madrid first team from 2015-2018. The player born in 1999 is the youngest person to wear Real at the Spanish professional basketball tournament. He was later elected to the best squad of the past decade of the tournament.

In 2018, he was selected by the Atlanta Hawks in the third round of the NBA rookie selection. The Dallas Mavericks then traded Trae Young for the Doncic. The two young talents both progressed and appeared in NBA All-Star in the second season, but Doncic was a bit better.

Doncic is compared by many coaches and experts at the NBA to LeBron James, who has the most comprehensive playstyle and mindset in the tournament. Even Doncic is also coach Doc Rivers (LA Clippers) like the sum of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, James Harden, Larry Bird and LeBron James.

No team left the NBA play-off, some NBA player went on strike

After the meeting of the American professional basketball players on August 27, all voted to continue playing the play-off round.

The players agree to play on the condition that the Organizing Committee must come up with a new plan to speak out against social injustice. The NBA player also held police accountable for their wrongdoing and called on US citizens to vote for President in November.

NBA coaches and athletes are outraged by the police firing seven shots in the back of black Jacob Blake, in front of the victim’s three children. Blake survived the shooting but was paralyzed with the lower half of the body and had difficulty walking normally as before.

On the morning of August 27, Milwaukee Bucks started the strike when he was not playing against Orlando Magic. After that, the NBA had to postpone two more games and hold an emergency meeting to come up with a resolution. The Bucks’ decision led to a halt to other professional sports tournaments in the US such as women’s basketball, baseball, rugby and tennis all at once.

Some NBA players went on strike

The three NBA play-offs in the morning of August 27 were postponed because the players refused to play, protesting the shooting with black man Jacob Blake.

The matches of Milwaukee Bucks – Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets – Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers – Portland Trail Blazers could not go as planned because the players boycotted. They protested against the police shooting seven bullets at black Jacob Blake in front of the victim’s three children.

According to ESPN, many players even want to talk about ending the season early. In the short term, they consider going on strike for one more day, not entering the field on August 28.

The organizers of the American professional basketball tournament must meet urgently with the owners of the NBA teams to work out a solution to the situation. According to The Athletic, only the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers voted out for the remainder of the season. The representatives of the two teams immediately left the meeting after commenting.

Continuing to shine, Devin Booker extended the Phoenix Suns’ unbeaten streak to six

The Phoenix Suns lifted their unbeaten streak to six by beating OKC Thunder with an impressive performance by Devin Booker.

With a 128-101 victory over Oklahoma City Thunder in the morning match, coach Monty Williams showed that they went to Orlando with a single goal of competing for the West’s final ticket to the Playoffs.

One day the Oklahoma City Thunder decided to drop and keep only Chris Paul in the starting lineup, the defeat is not too surprising when their opponent is a Phoenix Suns who are extremely determined at NBA Restart.

Do not use the main cast of players like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Steven Adams. Dennis Schroder, Nerlens Noel, and Danilo Gallinari, Thunder finished the second line with the lead of veteran defender Chris Paul. Coach Billy Donovan’s second line-up, however, was the better team in the first half as it ended with a 37-23 lead.

Even so, that’s the best of Thunder today. In the remaining 3 rounds, Devin Booker and his teammates completely took control of the match. They scored 105 points, compared with 64 points for Thunder, and easily got a blow-out (more than 20 points) in today’s match.

Phoenix Suns stay unbeaten in win over Oklahoma City Thunder

Devin Booker has maintained an impressive performance since the resumption of the season. In today’s match, despite being interrupted early from the end of the third half and not being on the field for the entire fourth half, Suns’ star is still the player with the most points on the field with 35 points, 5 rebounds with 4 assists, 52.9% finish rate, including 3 successful throws after 7 appearances.

Today’s stage is not Devin Booker’s own when the rest of the Suns players also play very evenly. Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson, Dario Saric, Cameron Payme, and Deandre Ayton were the players who scored over 10 points and contributed significantly to Suns’ overwhelming victory today.

On the Thunder side, Darius Bazley (22 points, 10 rebounds) is the most stable player in the day the team does not put much emphasis on winning and losing against an overly excited Phoenix Suns.

With this victory, Suns kept holding the opportunity to compete for a place in the play-in round when Devin Booker and his teammates were only 0.5 games behind Portland Trail Blazers (9th), and Memphis Grizzlies (8th) 1 match.

The LA Lakers ranked first in Western region for the first time after 10 years

The Los Angeles Lakers are undoubtedly the number one western seed at NBA Play-off 2019-2020, taking down Utah Jazz 116-108 on August 4.

For the first time since the 2009-2010 season, the LA Lakers finish the main season at the top of the Western table. The 116-108 victory over Utah Jazz helped LeBron James and his teammates secure the number one position before five matches. The second-highest NBA-winning team won 51 in 66 matches from the start of the season.

Anthony Davis dumped Kobe Bryant’s 7-year existence record

Anthony Davis shone in the Lakers’ latest victory, scoring 42 points and 12 rebounds, including 24 points in the first two halves. This is the 20th time the striker has scored at least 20 points after half a match this season. The closest Lakers player to do this was Kobe Bryant, a legend who died earlier this year in a helicopter accident.

Main events of the Lakers – Jazz match

The match took place in the first two rounds and the Lakers only created a two-point gap. Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points in the first half to help Utah Jazz chase the opponent. Mitchell’s long-shot helped Jazz start the exciting third with a series of 8-0 points.

However, Jazz constantly loosened the ball, leaving the opponent a chance to master the match. The Lakers took advantage of the opponent’s sagging with 14 consecutive points and closed the third half with a 19-2 point sequence. LeBron James and his teammates maintained the lead to the end of the match and secured the victory with a long throw situation of Anthony Davis.

This is the first time the Lakers have achieved a throw efficiency of over 50% since the Covid-19 pandemic. Two matches ago, teachers and students Frank Vogel only succeeded less than 40% in the final stage.

On the side of Utah Jazz, the students of coach Quin Snyder only achieved an efficiency of 27.9% from the three-point line. Failure did not affect their playoff tickets but made Jazz lose the race to the higher position. They are currently ranked fifth in the West with 42 wins – 25 losses.

Some typical NBA players with great height and scoring ability (Part 3)

Yao Ming

Yao Ming, despite owning a height of 2m29, is still not the tallest NBA player in history.

Basketball has long been known as a sport for giants. According to statistics, the average height of NBA players is 2m, but do you know who is the tallest player ever to play in the NBA?

To ease the selection of the 5 highest NBA players in history, webthethao.vn will consider the criteria of the number of matches played. The five players on this list must have at least 10 appearances in the NBA, the equivalent of a 10-day contract.

Although Boban Marjanovic of the Los Angeles Clippers has a height of 2m22, it is still much lower than the 5 players who are about to be mentioned. Yao Ming is undoubtedly the player with the most successful career on this list. The Chinese player averaged 19.0 points and 9.2 rebounds (kicking off the table) in 8 seasons in the NBA.

The biggest achievement in Yao Ming’s career was his participation in the NBA All-Star 8 times from 2003 to 2009 and 2011. Yao Ming’s career was soon terminated due to a serious injury. When he was playing in America, Yao Ming was famous, not inferior to Michael Jordan.

Shawn Bradley

Shawn Bradley is the player with the longest playing career on this list. In the 14 NBA seasons, Shawn Bradley averaged 9.8 points and 6.4 rebounds. The impression of the German player is probably that he was selected in 2nd place in the 1993 NBA Draft.

Manute Bol

Manute Bol is the 2nd highest player in NBA history. The interesting fact is that he has played against the lowest player in history, the Muggsy Bogues (1m60).

Manute Bol stands out with his excellent ability to throw the ball, but the remaining skills are quite weak. According to statistics, Manute Bol averages 5.0 blocks per game in the first season in the NBA. He is also the only player in NBA history to end his career with more blocks statistics than scoring.

Gheorghe Muresan

Gheorghe Muresan has a listed height as Manute Bol, but in fact, he is 231.06 cm tall, or 2m31.06. The greatest achievement in Gheorghe Muresan’s NBA career is the title of The most progressive player of the 1996 season.

Gheorghe Muresan has an average of 9.8 points and 6.4 rebounds in his 6-year NBA career.

Kevin Garnett and his colleagues are trying to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves

However, the relationship between Kevin Garnett and owner Glen Taylor is not very good. Both have not looked at each other since 2015, when legendary coach Flip Saunders (passed away in October 2015) is no longer there to mediate between the two. KG refused to be hung in the Timberwolves if Glen Taylor was in office.

Despite this, Kevin Garnett will probably hang his own shirt when he is having a great opportunity to become the owner of the Timberwolves in the future.
