The biggest basketball league in the world reaches its 15th week after a round full of great games and a lot of competition. The Celtics and the 76ers remain the best teams in the Eastern Conference, while the Nuggets and the Grizzlies take the top of the Western Conference.

Week 14 ended on Sunday, January 22, with the Lakers’ victory over the Trailblazers by 121 – 112. The Celtics reached their 35th victory of the season on Saturday, against the Raptors in Toronto, in a very balanced match, which ended 106-104.

The Houston Rockets remain the worst team in the NBA, as they have only won 10 games out of 46+ plays. Follow our summary of the main matches of the NBA weekend.

NBA Weekly Roundup 14: Wizards 138-118 Magic

Wizards and Magic faced each other last Saturday and, although they did not compete for the top positions in the Eastern Conference, they played the game with the biggest difference in points of the day.

The Magic were steamrolled in the first and fourth quarters, trailing 37-26 and 38-27, which was crucial to the final 20-point gap. Even with the 23 points scored by Markelle Fultz, Orlando was unable to react in the match and reached its 29th loss in the current NBA season. The Wizards remain 12th in the same division, with 20 wins and 26 losses so far.

NBA Weekly Roundup 14: Kings 127-129 76ers

The 76ers made a long trip to California and managed to beat the Kings by a small margin of points, in a very balanced match, which demonstrated, once again, the strength of the Philadelphia team.

The Kings came from a sequence of 6 straight victories, which placed them in 3rd place in the Western Conference, but they were unable to overcome the 76ers, who ended the game in the third period when they won by 38-22.

This was a very interesting meeting, between teams well-positioned in their divisions. The 76ers now have 30 wins, while the Kings remain with 26 wins and 19 losses.

NBA Weekly Roundup 14: Nuggets 134-111 Pacers

When they beat the Pacers on Friday, the Nuggets reached 9 straight wins, which served to maintain the leadership of the Western Conference for a few more rounds. Aaron Gordon scored 28 points in that match and was the highlight of the Nuggets’ victory, especially in the third period, when the team was up 38-29.

The Pacers are living through a terrible moment in the season and after the weekend’s games, they reached their 7th consecutive defeat in the competition, which made the team fall to 9th place in the Eastern Conference. The team was swallowed up by the Nuggets, and they couldn’t play their game smoothly. The team’s top scorer was Bennedict Mathurin, who had just 19 points throughout the match, demonstrating the Pacers’ great difficulty in completing the offensive plays.
