Today, the NBA regular season continues. In today's game, the two teams from the East and the West, the Clippers and the Nets, started a clash. This game has different meanings for the two teams. The Clippers' record does not have much pressure. It is nothing more than keeping the second place in the Western Conference. The Nets need to continue to strive for victory and improve their ranking in the Eastern Division. To get a better position. Since there is not much time left in the regular season in the quarter-finals, the two teams also need to seize the few opportunities in these games, run a good lineup, and lay a solid foundation for the upcoming playoffs.
Today’s game, the Clippers suspended Paul George and Leonard led the team. It stands to reason that from the comparison of the strengths of the two sides, the Clippers clearly have the upper hand. The Clippers have a deep lineup and strong troops. The Nets lacked many stars and almost used a set of improvised lineups to challenge. Normally speaking, even without George, it should be a one-sided situation. But when the game came up, the game developed in a completely opposite direction to what people expected. Not only did the Clippers fail to take advantage in the first quarter, they were beaten by the Nets and fell behind by 21 points in a single quarter! This situation is still shocking.
In the first quarter of the game, Leonard felt very hot. He made 5 of 5 shots in a single quarter, scored 10 points, 1 rebound and 1 assist, which is regarded as an MVP level. Helplessly his teammates, today is really not good. Except for Morris Jr., who was 2 of 2 from the field, Reggie Jackson made 1 of 6 shots, Lu Wei made 0 of 1, and Zubacz shot 0 of 1. Not only the hit rate is not good, but the number of mobile phones is not much. The Clippers made 10 of 20 shots in a single quarter, scored 24 points and shot 50%, which is fair. Reluctantly this night, the Nets, who stood opposite them, really had an explosive feel for the team.
The Nets made 18 of 21 shots in a single quarter, 8 of 10 three-pointers and 45 points. Seeing such data, you may have some illusions, such crazy shooting, is this the Nets or the Rockets? Nets player Joe Harris showed great power in the first quarter. He shot 6 of 6 in a single quarter and 4 of 4 three-pointers. He scored 16 points, completely suppressing the light of 5 of 5 cards. In addition, LeVille made 7 of 9 shots and 2 of 4 three-pointers; Temple shot 2 of 2 and 1 of three-pointers; Jarrett Allen made 2 of 2 shots. Today's Nets are already impeccable offensively. With this offensive state, they make the Clippers faceless.
For such a civilian net, we have to pay the highest respect. Their head star Durant was reimbursed for the season, and due to the special situation this year, stars such as Irving, Dinwiddie, and Jordan have withdrawn from the season. In this case, the Nets players not only made it to the playoffs, but they also showed their own style and demeanor in today’s conversation with the Clippers, a super strong team. Respectfully. Let's see if this Nets team will bring more surprises to people in the playoffs!
