NBA Games Review: Who Came Out on Top This Week?

Josh Cole    Josh Cole     December 6, 2019    

It was another vintage week in the NBA, and the games we saw were packed with entertainment. It was hard to choose a list of matchups to review, but the results below are the very best of what we saw. We will tell you everything that happened, how it affects the standings, and what’s coming up next. Let’s get into the games and news now. 

 

Boston Celtics 112-93 Miami Heat

 

This was a result the Celtics needed after the recent setbacks over the previous five games. It was never going to be comfortable and hats off to them for getting over the line. Jaylen Brown scored 31 points and was backed up by teammate Kemba Walker who put in 28 of his own in an excellent display from both. Next up for the Celtics is the Nuggets, and we will preview that one later this week. 

 

The Heat came into this with high hopes after their recent displays, but it was not to be as they couldn’t cope with Boston. They are now down to the sixth spot in the NBA Eastern, and that will sting after how well they played over the last few weeks. All is not lost, and if they can pick themselves up, they will be back amongst the top teams. Next up for Miami is a game against the Wizards, which they should take a win from

Utah Jazz 96-121 LA Lakers

 

This result means the Jazz are now without a win in three games, having won just four of the last ten. Something needs to give, and although they were never the favorites to succeed here, the limp performance will do nothing for their confidence. They are down to sixth in the NBA Western now, and sooner or later they need to improve. The Jazz have a good chance of doing just that when they face the Grizzlies.

It was a professional and dominant performance again from the Lakers as they extended their winning run to two games. Their last ten looks even stronger, having lost one single game in all those appearances. Anthony Davis was the man of the moment, and LeBron James was no slouch here either. It’s the Trail Blazers coming next, and our money is firmly behind the Lakers again.

Detroit Pistons 103-127 Milwaukee Bucks

 

It was always going to be a tall order for Pistons to overcome the Bucks in their current form, and they didn’t embarrass themselves despite the defeat. After the first quarter, it looked like there could be an upset, but they collapsed in the second, and it was over as a contest by half time. The main positive for Detroit was the performance from centre Andre Drummond who pitched in with 23 points and 5 assists. The Pistons’ next challenge comes in the form of the Pacers, and we can see them winning.

The Bucks are the best side in the NBA at the moment, and you can’t look past them in the NBA Eastern. They have won an unprecedented thirteen games in a row, and that NBA record is one they thoroughly deserve. It’s hard to see anyone catching them unless they hit a bad patch. They will play against the Clippers next and should take another victory.

Looking Ahead

 

That’s it for the most significant games over the last few days in the NBA, and the good news is there are lots still to come. We will be back very soon with our preview and predictions for the upcoming battles. It’s tight at the top and some of the best need to keep up their form to strengthen their NBA Championship credentials. We can’t wait to bring you all the news over the next few weeks and beyond.
