NBA Weekly Roundup 15

Last Updated on January 30, 2023 5:42 pm by Erwin Noguera

After 15 weeks in the NBA, the Boston Celtics have proven to be one of the most consistent teams and are the leaders of the Eastern Conference, while the Denver Nuggets have taken over the Western.

Teams like the Philadelphia 76ers and Golden State Warriors have rebounded in recent weeks, while others like the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans have fizzled out, and the Los Angeles Lakers remain the season’s big disappointment.

On an individual level, Joel Embiid is averaging 33.8 points per game, surpassing Luka Doncic (33) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (31.7), while Domantas Sabonis leads in rebounds (12.3) and James Harden (11.2) in assists.

NBA League Pass

The Grizzlies were able to get out of a terrible streak of 5 consecutive losses this Sunday by defeating the Indiana Pacers 112-100 with a great performance from their star, Ja Morant, who achieved a triple-double with 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 15 assists. Jaren Jackson Jr. was also important on offense scoring 28 points.

The Grizzlies, who lost the Western Conference lead due to this slump, are now 2 games behind the Denver Nuggets.

For their part, the Pacers are in the worst moment of the season. It is the third loss in a row and the tenth in the last 11 games. They are in such bad shape that they have already left the play-in positions and their future in the postseason is in jeopardy. The absence of Tyrese Haliburton due to injury has been decisive for this bad moment for the team, although it is expected that the point guard can return this week.

Result: Grizzlies 112-100 Pacers

Moneyline odds: 

Cavaliers -650

Clippers +475

NBA League Pass

The Cleveland Cavaliers still do not dominate the league but their ups and downs have helped them stay among the Eastern Conference playoff spots, and this Sunday they beat the Los Angeles Clippers 122-99, thus ending a streak of 5 consecutive wins.

The Turkish Cedi Osman came off the bench and only needed 22 minutes to score 29 points and equal his record for scores in an NBA game, when he did it with the Miami Heat in 2019, precisely against the Cavs. Also, he had 7 of 7 3-pointers, which is a career-high for him. Darius Garland was also important with his double-double of 16 points and 10 assists.

The Clippers did not have their two stars, Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, the team’s top scorers, and Brandon Boston Jr. was in charge of that role and scored 24 points.

The Cavaliers are fifth in the Eastern Conference and the Clippers fourth in the Western.

Result: Cavaliers 122-99 LA Clippers

The Milwaukee Bucks reached their fourth straight victory by crushing the New Orleans Pelicans 135-110 with a superb performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 50 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 assists.

The Bucks managed to get within 2.5 games of the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference and share second place with the Philadelphia 76ers who already have 7 consecutive wins.

On the other hand, the moment of the Pelicans is quite worrying since they have 8 losses in a row and 13 in their last 16 games. What seemed like one of the quintets that could fight in the Western Conference, is now in eighth place, 8.5 games behind the Denver Nuggets, and fighting not to leave the play-in positions.

Result: Bucks 110-135 Pelicans
