Clipper is strong again – the Mavericks won for the first time since 2016 at Utah

While most Europeans are asleep, the professional leagues in North America are bustling. What happened that night in American football, basketball, and ice hockey.

Basketball: Clipper is strong again – the Mavericks win for the first time since 2016 at Utah

In the third playoff without their superstar Luka Doncic, the Dallas Mavericks took their second win and in the NBA every chance to enter the next round. More than six years after their recent success in Salt Lake City, the Mavericks won out with NBA player Maxi Clipper Thursday night (local time) after an impressive 126:118 performance against the Utah Jazz. Doncic is discharged with a calf injury.

Like Monday’s win in Dallas, Clipper had a solid evening and contributed 17 points. He hit four of his five three-point attempts. The Mavericks are now 2-1 up in the series. In a better than seven position, whoever has four wins first advances to the next round.

“It feels good for sure, especially in the qualifiers. It is very difficult to play here, the fans are very loud,” Kleber told DPA. “When they are alert, it is easy to get intimidated, but we showed strength today and we had a few The players who eventually took over.”

Galen Bronson was the best Mavericks shooter with 31 points. “A 2-1 lead in the playoffs is very good, but we also know that they are very hungry now and they will be out on Saturday and of course they are playing a bit more physical,” Kleber said. “So it wouldn’t be easier,” he added, “but a second win in Utah would be great of course.”

“We have a lot of character in this dressing room. We kept playing. This group believes in itself and we talk a lot about defending and stop when we need it,” coach Jason Kidd said. Kidd left open whether Doncic could play on Saturday.

Basketball: Memphis makes an epic comeback

The Memphis Grizzlies made an amazing comeback with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Grizzlies were already 26 points behind in the second quarter (21:47) before they started catching up and winning the game 104:95. Memphis tied the series 2-1 with the fourth-most comeback in NBA game history.

The Grizzlies turned up the heat, especially in the fourth quarter. With 21:0, they tied the match eight minutes from the end and won the final division 37:12 (!).

In Game Three of the Night, the Golden State Warriors set a clear path for the next round. The San Francisco team won 118-113 at the Denver Nuggets and is facing a landslide victory with their third win in three games. Stephen Curry and Jordan Paul scored 27 points, while Clay Thompson contributed 26 points. With the Nuggets, 37 points from last year’s player of the year Nikola Jokic could not prevent the next defeat.

Ice Hockey: Dampers for Cider and Detroit

German ice hockey player Moritz Seider suffered another setback in the North American Professional League. The 21-year-old has lost with the Detroit Red Wings against title favorites the Florida Panthers 2:5 despite the initial lead, being his third bankruptcy in the past four games.

While his German teammate Thomas Grace was not used, Ceder earned the second most ice time on his team with a time of 21:39. However, the defender did not participate in a goal, so he still has 48 points before the last four games of the main round.

Detroit is already out of the playoffs and will miss the knockout stages for the sixth year in a row. The traditional team previously ran the playoffs from 1991 to 2015. The Panthers, for their part, took the Eastern Conference first place early on, thus earning their home ground advantage in the playoffs.
