by Samuel Martin (iDalgo)
Before the All Star Break, two meetings were scheduled this night. Both ranked 3rd in their conference, Celtics and Clippers clashed. At TD Garden, the proteges of Brad Stevens won for the 7th time in a row (141-133). But it was not an easy task since two extensions had to be contested. Jayson Tatum stood out with his 39 points, he was well accompanied by Marcus Smart (31 units) to register half of the total of their team. On the other side, Paul George felt new hamstring pain and was no further than the second quarter. Finally, OKC overcame New Orleans (118-123). Despite the 6th consecutive game with more than 20 points from Zion Williamson (32 pts), NOLA did not manage to chain a fourth success in a row. The fault in particular to a Danilo Gallinari very skilful at shots (29 pts at 66% success). The Pelicans see 8th place synonymous with play-offs moving away slightly while the Thunder remains warm in 7th position in the West.
