The San Antonio Spurs suffered their second defeat of the season on Wednesday (local time) in the National Basketball Association (NBA) after their last three wins. After 48 hours of 115:106 at the Minnesota Timberwolves, they lost the “rematch” by 122:134. Jacob Boltle of Vienna scored a double-double for the third time in a row.
Exactly six years after his debut in the strongest basketball league in the world, Pöltl scored twelve points and, as the strongest man on the boards, had ten rebounds. The 27-year-old was the 55th double hitter of the NBA season, which also contributed four assists in 29:06 minutes of play.
Already behind in the second half
“We weren’t vigilant enough in the first half,” Pöltl analyzed. In addition, the opponent “has a very high score”. This resulted in a 53:68 deficit for Spurs, who started without injured goalkeepers Devin Vassil and Joshua Primo. Keldon Johnson scored 27 points for San Antonio. Minnesota led by Anthony Edwards with 34 points.
In the next eight games through November 11, the Texans will play seven times in front of their home fans. On Friday, the Chicago Bulls visit San Antonio with DeMar DeRozan, who also has three wins and two losses after beating the Indiana Pacers 124:109.
The Lakers are still unbeaten, the Bucks are unbeaten
For the Los Angeles Lakers, there was nothing to get him in the fourth game of the season. Anthony Davis (22 points), LeBron James (19) and his teammates lost to the Denver Nuggets (31 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists from Nikola Jokic), recording 99: 110.
Because the Portland Trail Blazers lost 98-119 at home to the Miami Heat, the Milwaukee Bucks are the only team unbeaten in the league. The Wisconsin franchise defeated the Brooklyn Nets 110-99, with Giannis Antetokounmpo topping out with 43 points and 14 rebounds.
