La NBA no deja de sorprendernos / The NBA never ceases to amaze us | ESP-ENG
FIESTA DE PUNTOS / POINTS PARTY
Continuing with the NBA action after the Christmas break, the season continues its course, and now we focus on one of the games that actually left us a pleasant surprise, and is that the Los Angeles Clippers, came from behind and beat the Detroit Pistons in overtime, but what is relevant is not that, but the way they did it, by turning the game around in the last 3 minutes of regulation time, overcoming a deficit of 14 points in that period of time to send everything to overtime, to then get the victory in their visit to the city of Detroit 142 to 131, giving all the credit for the comeback to the guys on the bench, who at that time were the ones who were on the court.
LA NBA NO DEJA DE SORPRENDERNOS / THE NBA NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE US
The high scores in recent times in the games, have represented that in the NBA, there are great players who stand out when it comes to basket the ball, all this takes its due work, effort and dedication, but there is also the opposite side, which is the defense, which in my opinion has been displaced since last season and have not been able to contain the scorers, and this means two things, one that they are really good scorers, I have no doubt, and the other that the defense has been very weak and this has allowed them, to have many days with many points in their personal accounts, which leads to 3 digit results for each of their teams, opening the great debate of how good they are.
Without taking away any merit from the current league leading scorers, where would they be if they were playing in the 90's, the era that was dominated by Michael Jordan and the Bulls? not only because it was dominated by them, but because the prototype of the players of that time was, that they were good in offense and defense, that is always shown by the result of most of the games, that most of the games did not go over 100 points, a very competitive style of play that gave the power to prove Jordan's talent as one of the greatest of this sport.
When we get into the game between the Pistons and Clippers, we easily realize the trend that I have been mentioning, a barbaric amount of points between both teams, which show more realities, that they have gone to overtime does not mean that both defenses were doing their job, it has been a parity achieved by a team from Los Angeles, which was behind on the scoreboard and was able to tie it in the final minutes, falling short, because if there had been more time they would have won in regulation time.
The third quarter was key for Detroit as they capitalized up to 39 points and maintained the 6-point lead that kept them ahead on the scoreboard, entering the final stretch of the game with an advantage that doubled the previous one, 14 points seemed enough to secure the win with only three minutes to go, and the Clippers' bench substitutions would set in motion and everything would line up for one of the most efficient comebacks of recent times, drawing much attention to the fact that it was orchestrated by the bench.
Another example that things are not going well defensively in the league, it seems unacceptable that a team does so much damage in such a short time and at the end of the game, being very permissive and at the same time trusting to allow these things to happen, of course the Detroit team has many things to improve, they occupy the last place in the conference for the second consecutive season without seeing a good sign of improvement in their game.
This does not overshadow the great work being done by Tyronnn Lue and his guys, who have remained in first place in the ''West'' with a good 4th place performance recording so far in the season of 20-15, also giving credit to himself, because it was the bench who took the game to overtime and that event keeps California with a good win-loss streak in the last ten games with a balance of 6 and 4, close to Denver, New Orleans and Memphis at only 2.5 games.
LA NBA EN LA HISTORIA / NBA IN HISTORY
Once again we are witnessing that a player of this generation is making history in the league, and we are talking about the Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant and long-time scoring leader in both the ''East'' and ''West'' conference who this week has reached the important figure of 26,497 points in his professional career, reaching the 15th place of all time, leaving behind recognized figures like Tim Duncan and Paul Pierce and placing very close to the great Dominique Wilkins.
Por otra parte este gran logro es gracias a sus números siempre destacados en cuanto a puntos, con un porcentaje de 30 puntos por partidos, es sinónimo de estar en buenas condiciones, y con ello, ayudando de gran manera a su equipo al ubicarlos gracias a su desempeño, en el tercer lugar de la conferencia del ‘‘Este’’ a solo 2 partidos del primer lugar ocupado por los Celtics de Boston y solo medio juego por debajo de los Bucks quienes son segundos, con un buen registro de 22 y 12 con 9 victorias en los últimos 10 partidos, siendo estas 9 victorias de manera consecutiva, esta actuación, borra un poco el desplome que tuvo el equipo de los Nets la temporada pasada, a clasificar en el último puesto a la postemporada luego de haber tenido muchos problemas internos con algunos de sus jugadores.
On the other hand this great achievement is thanks to his numbers always outstanding in terms of points, with a percentage of 30 points per game, is synonymous of being in good condition, and with them helping in a great way to his team by placing them thanks to their performance in third place in the ''Eastern'' conference just 2 games behind the first place occupied by the Boston Celtics and only half a game behind the Bucks who are second, with a good record of 22y12 with 9 wins in the last 10 games, being these 9 wins in a row, this performance, erases a little bit the slump that the Nets team had last season, to qualify in the last place to the post-season after having many internal problems with some of their players.
