NBA: Dennis Schröder sparked Celtics comeback without a happy ending

The Boston Celtics have suffered a defeat after two wins in a row – despite a good performance by Dennis Schröder, who drives his team to a comeback. The Nets lose despite a new franchise record. Franz Wagner convinced the Bucks to lose and Harrison Barnes shocked the Suns.

Orlando Magic (1-4) – Charlotte Hornets (4-1) 111:120 (BOXSCORE)

  • The Hornets are back on track, but had to tremble longer against Orlando than they would like. In the end, the duo of Gordon Hayward and Miles Bridges was too strong for the Florida men. Bridges delivered the next 30+ point game (31, 11/21 FG), Hayward provided good support with 24 points.
  • The Magic got off to an excellent start, which Franz Wagner gilded with a three to make it 16: 8. A little later, brother Moritz increased it to +11, but the strong Hornets bank around Jalen McDaniels (16) and Cody Martin (12) brought the guests back into the game. In the second round, Bridges and Hayward kept the situation even and it stayed that way until the final section.
  • In the middle of the last round, Charlotte made an 11: 3 run, Bridges himself took care of the dagger from downtown to 116: 107 one minute before the end. Orlando continued to defend himself, including with an intelligent play from Franz Wagner, who played an inbounds pass from Mason Plumlee’s back to himself and drew free throws, but the deficit was too great.
  • The 20-year-old rookie knew how to please again with 15 efficient points (5/7 FG and 3/4 threesome), Moritz got 4 points in 10 minutes. The home team’s best scorer was Cole Anthony (24 and 6 assists), Wendell Carter Jr. (20 and 10 rebounds) and Mo Bamba (14 and 10) each collected a double-double. In the final section, however, the 8 ball losses hurt (Hornets: 2).
