Celtics and Bucks intensify war for the top of the East in the NBA

The Boston team defeated the Sacramento Kings 122-104, supported by a fantastic offensive performance by Jayson Tatum, who scored 30 points and collected eight rebounds.

The Bucks, for their part, had their great bulwark in Greek Giannis Antetokounmpo to unseat the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-102.

Antetokounmpo scored 38 cards, grabbed nine rebounds under the boards and distributed six assists, as well as two blocks, to establish himself as the big hero of the night and reaffirm his nomination for the campaign’s Most Valuable Player award.

Thus, Boston reached 15 wins against four losses, and was one and a half games ahead of Milwaukee (13-5), occupying the second silver in the East.

Behind are, in fact, the Cavaliers (12-7).

In the West, meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Clippers 114-104 to post their win-loss record at 12-7, just half a line behind the leader, the Phoenix Suns (12-6).

The fantastic Nikola Jokic, with 19 points, six assists and 13 rebounds, led the Nuggets, although Aaron Gordon, with 29 points, had a starring role.

For this Saturday, the NBA is planning a four-game schedule, among which the one that the Suns will hold against the Utah Jazz (12-9), who are only one and a half games away from the first position in the Western Conference, stands out.

Also, they will be rivals Lakers-Spurs, Thunder-Rockets and Mavericks-Raptors.
