Lakers equalize against Phoenix

The Los Angeles Lakers suffered a setback in the play-offs. The defending champion lost to the Phoenix Suns in his own hall, making it 2-2 in the best-of-seven series. The Dallas Mavericks also got the equalizer.

The German national basketball players Maximilian Kleber and Dennis Schröder suffered setbacks in the playoffs of the North American NBA. Kleber lost with the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday (local time) with 81: 106 at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. Their city rivals Los Angeles Lakers conceded a 92-100 home defeat against the Phoenix Suns with Schröder. In both best-of-seven series it is 2: 2. Whoever wins two more games is in the next round.

Dallas was already 16 points behind at halftime and had major problems on the offensive for long stretches. The Clippers top performers Kawhi Leonard (29 points) and Paul George (20), on the other hand, did not let themselves be distracted, while the home side, Luka Doncic, who was initially questionable, did not have a good day. He converted only nine of his 24 throw attempts from the field. Kleber even remained without points in over 32 minutes.

In Los Angeles, the Suns gradually expanded their break lead in the third quarter and defended their lead until the end. Development player Schröder only hit three of his 13 attempts to throw from the field, the native of Braunschweig scored eight points in the end. The best thrower of the game was Lakers superstar LeBron James with 25 points.

Before moving into the second round are the Atlanta Hawks and the Brooklyn Nets. After the 113: 96 over the New York Knicks, Atlanta leads in the series 3: 1. Even the Nets are missing only one win to advance after their 141: 126 win against the Boston Celtics.

Setbacks in the playoffs for Schröder and Kleber

Dallas (AP) – The German national basketball players Maximilian Kleber and Dennis Schröder suffered setbacks in the playoffs of the North American NBA.

Kleber lost with the Dallas Mavericks 81: 106 at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. Their city rivals Los Angeles Lakers conceded a 92-100 home defeat against the Phoenix Suns with Schröder. In both best-of-seven series it is 2: 2. Whoever wins two more games is in the next round.

Dallas was 16 points behind at halftime and had major problems on the offensive for long stretches. The Clippers top performers Kawhi Leonard (29 points) and Paul George (20), on the other hand, did not let themselves be distracted, while the home side, Luka Doncic, who was initially questionable, did not have a good day. He converted only nine of his 24 throw attempts from the field. Kleber even remained without points in over 32 minutes.

National basketball player Dennis Schröder conceded the 2-2 equalizer with the defending champion at home with the 92: 100 (50:54). The Suns gradually extended their break lead in the third quarter and defended their lead until the end. Development player Schröder only hit three of his 13 attempts to throw from the field, the native of Braunschweig scored eight points in the end. The best thrower for the Lakers was superstar LeBron James with 25 points. Six players scored double digits at Phoenix, the most successful being Chris Paul with 18 points.

There was trouble after the 141: 126 victory of the Brooklyn Nets at the Boston Celtics. A fan reportedly threw a water bottle at former Celtics pro Kyrie Irving. According to the TD Garden, this was led out of the arena by the police. “We don’t throw tomatoes or other stuff at people,” said Irving. This is basic racism, players are treated like in a “human zoo”.

After that, the Nets are only missing one victory to advance – as are the Atlanta Hawks. After 113: 96 over the New York Knicks, Atlanta also leads the series 3: 1.

NBA Playoffs: Phoenix Suns equal series against Los Angeles Lakers

NBA Playoffs: Phoenix Suns equal series against Los Angeles Lakers

The Phoenix Suns won game 4 of the series at the Los Angeles Lakers with 100: 92 and thus regained their home advantage. After the Lakers lost the injured Anthony Davis at halftime, the guests pulled away in the third quarter. It was the Sun’s first away playoff win since May 2010.

With Davis, who went into the game already battered and acted weakly until he was eliminated due to a thigh strain, it was only enough for 6 points and 4 rebounds (2/9 FG) in 19 minutes. By far the best Laker was LeBron James (25, 10/21 FG, 12 rebounds), he was the only starter in Double Figures. Otherwise, the reservists Kyle Kuzma (11, 4/11 FG), Alex Caruso (10, 3/8 FG) and especially Marc Gasol (12, 3/5 3FG, 8 rebounds) made the best impression. Dennis Schröder stumbled offensively and got 8 points on 3/13 out of the field.

The Suns were led on points by Chris Paul (18, 9 assists, 7/15 FG), whose use was only decided shortly before the game. Devin Booker’s litter fell badly (17, 5/14 FG), Deandre Ayton raged in the zone (14 and 17). Jae Crowder (17, 6/12 FG) and Cameron Payne (13) also made a valuable contribution.

Anthony Davis (left knee) was listed as questionable on the Injury Report, but made it clear the day before that he would definitely not sit out. That’s how it happened. The same was true on the other side for Chris Paul, who was noticeably less than 100 percent in previous games due to a sprained shoulder. Kentavious-Caldwell Pope, however, was not fit on time and replaced in the starting lineup by Wesley Matthews.

For the first points of the game, Booker found Ayton under the basket, Paul sank a jumper and was ready to close early. As a result, LeBron took over and brought the guests in front with 7 quick points. Payne’s third threesome sat and gave the Suns the lead for a short time, Schröder ended an 8-0 run by Phoenix with a personal 5-0 run. Gasol’s tip-in with the buzzer gave the Lakers a 24:23 lead after twelve minutes.

Los Angeles Lakers strike back! Davis Gala and LeBron Dagger too much for die-hard Phoenix Suns

Los Angeles Lakers strike back!  Davis Gala and LeBron Dagger too much for die-hard Phoenix Suns

The Los Angeles Lakers have balanced the series with the Phoenix Suns. The reigning champion was in the front for most of the season, but the hosts couldn’t be shaken off. In the end, it was Anthony Davis and LeBron James who made the big plays, the Lakers won 109-102.

Anthony Davis was unrecognizable after his playoff low (13) and put on 34 points (7/15 FG, 18/21 FT), 10 rebounds and 7 assists. LeBron James (23, 9/16 FG, 9 assists) got off to a good start, but also took a few breaks, in the end he was fully back. That was also possible because Dennis Schröder played one of his better games in the Lakers Jersey and won 24 Score (8/16 FG). Definitely his best game in the Lakers jersey made Andre Drummond (15, 12 rebounds), who this time didn’t just put on empty numbers.

For the Suns, Chris Paul (6, 5 assists) only played 23 minutes due to his shoulder injury and was visibly restricted. So Devin Booker (31, 7/17 FG, 17/17 FT) had to take on more responsibility and it succeeded. Deandre Ayton (22, 11/13 FG, 10 rebounds) continued his good performance from the start, and CP3 backup Cameron Payne (19) was a factor, even if Phoenix left the field as a loser in the end.

It hadn’t played a minute and it was obvious that Davis, who was weak in Game 1, was up to something. Within a minute, “The Brow” Jae Crowder had committed two fouls, but also kicked the Suns-Forward in the groin area when jumping – a flagrant foul set. Fouls were the story of the first few minutes, both teams were in the bonus after just four minutes.

NBA Playoff Preview – Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Two geniuses meet …

NBA Playoff Preview – Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Two geniuses meet …

The Phoenix Suns meet the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of playoffs and this also leads to the first playoff duel between LeBron James and Chris Paul. Even more than the two geniuses, the focus in this series is on the duel on the major positions.

SPOX looks ahead to all series of the first round. Here is an overview of all previews.

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers: The starting point

It rarely happens that the seventh-placed team is favored by all bookmakers in the first round, but this is the season for the Los Angeles Lakers, who only qualified for the playoffs via the play-in tournament. The season of the champions was turbulent, the season of the opposite was the exact opposite.

While almost the entire league struggled with injuries and corona, Phoenix was one of the healthiest teams ever and was able to perform more consistently than almost any other team. The start was mixed with some teething problems (8-8), since then the team got used to each other better and better and dominated at both ends of the court (43-13).

The Sun’s recipe for success? Last year, the bubble already showed that the young players are slowly getting ready for more than all eight games have been won. In the offseason came Jae Crowder and especially Chris Paul, two seasoned veterans who should take Phoenix to the next level. That this would work so well in a moment came as a bit of a surprise.

Paul only gave two games and a new coat of paint to his team over the entire season. From the start, Point God dictated one of the slowest teams in the league, which is defined by a methodical, variable offense and strong defense. Almost the entire squad got better with his arrival, which is why the 36-year-old even appeared in the extended MVP conversation despite “moderate” statistics (16 points, 9 assists on average).

Directly from the dpa news channel

Los Angeles (AP) – For national basketball player Dennis Schröder there are no more excuses before the start of the pre-playoffs of the NBA. However, the Los Angeles Lakers professional admits that he still lacks the rhythm after his most recent forced break due to a corona quarantine.

But he still feels ready for the duel with superstar Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, said the Brunswick. “We have to do our job. There are no excuses. I’ve been absent but I feel great. We’re going into this game like it’s game seven of a playoff series and we’re going to give it all we have.” Schröder had to sit out for two weeks because a person from his environment had tested positive for the corona virus.

At the Warriors, on the other hand, curry is in top form. Switching it off completely is not possible, Schröder believes. “He is the best thrower there has ever been. Every throw he gets is a good throw for him. We have to give 110 percent and stick to our plan, then we will leave the field with a win,” emphasized Schröder.

If the Lakers prevail, they will face the Phoenix Suns in the first playoff round. In the event of a defeat, they will have another chance to get the final round ticket in a second pre-qualification game.

Los Angeles Lakers News and Rumors

Los Angeles Lakers News and Rumors

Before the play-in-game of the Los Angeles Lakers against the Golden State Warriors (Thursday, 4 a.m. live on DAZN) has warned Lakers star Anthony Davis urgently about Stephen Curry. Dennis Schröder meanwhile admitted that his stamina is not yet 100 percent after his Corona break.

Here you can find all the news and rumors before the duel between the two heavyweights Lakers vs. Warriors. You can find more news about Schröder and the Lakers here.

Lakers in the play-in tournament: Anthony Davis warns against curry

Although the Los Angeles Lakers are going into the postseason with the NBA’s # 1 defense, the reigning champion has a good deal of respect for Stephen Curry. LeBron James last referred to the Warriors star as the 2020/21 MVP and Anthony Davis also warned in a media round before the play-in-game before the regular season scoring champ.

“We know who the snake’s head is, that’s Steph,” Davis said after a training session on Tuesday. “We have to do our best to control him. That takes good teamwork, not just pressure from the guards. We have to make sure we keep an eye on him and deal with him at all times.”

The Splash Brother led the Warriors in the regular season with an average of 32.0 points at 48.2 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from downtown almost single-handedly in eighth place in the Western Conference. The Dubs have won eight of the past nine games, and in May Curry even scored 36.8 points per game.

“He’s the best shooter who has ever played this game,” said Dennis Schröder, who, together with Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, will probably do most of the defensive work against Curry, full of praise. “Every throw, whatever comes after the middle line, is a good throw for him. You have to make it as hard as possible for him and limit his threesomes.”

Meanwhile, Warriors coach Steve Kerr expects the Lakers to throw everything they have at Curry on defense. “Multiple defenders, different matchups, blitzes … that kind of thing. You’ll be his shadow,” Kerr said. “Steph has already seen everything. Draymond (Green, editor’s note) is probably the key, with his screens and dribble handoffs he will have the right answer.”

In the three previous duels in the season, LA kept the point guard at 23 points per game and a 42.3 percent field throw rate.

Lakers star Dennis Schröder: “Try to get my stamina back”

Dennis Schröder has admitted that he had not yet reached his physical condition before his forced Corona break. The Braunschweig player had recently missed seven games because he was included in the NBA’s corona protocol. The days off would have been good for him, but at the same time he is now trying to “get back the condition that I had during the season,” said Schröder.

DS17 emphasized that he felt “great” on the court, “but I haven’t played for ten days. Of course, my stamina is a bit behind.” After his return, Schröder received around 27 minutes of playing time in the last two games of the regular season and placed 14 and 12 points respectively.

“During the season we played every other day, so my condition was at a top level,” added Schröder. “If you have to take ten days off, it’s not the same afterwards. But I’ll just try to get back to that level.”

NBA live today: The starting position before Pacers – Lakers

Today’s game is equally important for the Pacers and Lakers. Indiana is already firmly qualified for the play-in tournament, but will do everything in its power to push the Charlotte Hornets from eighth place and thereby work out a better position.

For this, however, Indy needs a win and at the same time has to hope for a mistake by the Hornets, who are ahead of the Pacers in the tie-breaker.

The Lakers, on the other hand, want to prevent going into the play-in tournament, but need two wins from the remaining two games. For their part, they have to hope for a mistake by the Blazers, who have to play against the Nuggets on the last day of the game. In the event of a tie, Portland would end up ahead due to the tie-breaker.

NBA live today: Schröder probably back, LeBron questionable

Against the Pacers, Lakers coach Frank Vogel can again rely on Dennis Schröder, who missed the last four games due to the league’s Health and Safety Protocol.

On the other hand, LeBron James, who continues to struggle with his injury, is questionable. “We’ll have to wait, but there is a chance he will play if everything goes well,” Vogel said on Friday.

Eastern Conference: The race for the play-in tournament

All teams have booked the tickets for the play-in tournament, but the exact positions between eighth and tenth place are still being played out.

Rang Team Siege Defeats
7 Boston Celtics 35 35
8 Charlotte Hornets 33 37
9 Indiana Pacers 33 37
10 Washington Wizards 33 38

As a reminder: this is how the play-in tournament works!

Play-in in the east according to today’s status:

  • Game 1: (7) Boston vs. (8) Charlotte – the winner goes into the playoffs as a 7-seed
  • Game 2: (9) Indiana vs. (10) Washington – the winner remains in the play-in tournament, the loser is eliminated
  • Game 3: Loser from Boston / Charlotte vs. winner from Indiana / Washington – the winner goes into the playoffs as an 8-seed

Dennis Schröder and Kyle Lowry on the New York Knicks radar

The New York Knicks are one of the positive surprises of the season and will be part of the teams with Cap-Space this summer. CUT According to the New Yorkers want to invest primarily in the point guard position.

At the Knicks, Elfrid Payton and Derrick Rose become unrestricted free agents, while Frank Ntilikina becomes unrestricted. Due to the long relationship between Rose and Head Coach Tom Thibodeau, it is to be expected that the former MVP will be kept, but there should be room for a new starter.

The Toronto Raptors’ Kyle Lowry is high on the Knicks list, according to the report. The 35-year-old will also be unrestricted in the summer and New York would have the financial means to offer more than other interested teams such as the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Lowry isn’t the only point guard on the Knicks radar, though. Dennis Schröder is also on their list, it says in the report; the German could not agree on a new contract with the Lakers ahead of time, so he can theoretically switch anywhere in the offseason.

There is also an offer for restricted free agent Lonzo Ball in the room – the Knicks spoke with the New Orleans Pelicans about a possible deal before the trade deadline, but none came off.
