‘Triple Double’ Jokichi Field Goal 100%… NBA Denver beats LA Lakers without James to lead the West

The Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association (NBA), led by Nikola Jokic, who recorded a record of 16 assists, triple doubles, and 100% field goals, won three consecutive victories and kept first place in the Western Conference.

Denver won 122-109 in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league home game against the Los Angeles Lakers held at Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado, USA on the 10th (Korean time).

Denver (27-13), which continued its three-game winning streak, secured first place in the West by a narrow margin.

There is no ride with the Memphis Grizzlies (27-13), who won on the same day, but was ahead of opponents in the same conference.

Denver has a huge advantage over Western Conference teams with a 20-9 record. Memphis is 13-10, worse than this.

With the victory, Denver extended its winning streak at home to 11 games.

Denver has won 17 of its 20 home games this season, continuing its traditional “home power team” reputation.

On the other hand, the Lakers, which showed a recent uptrend despite the absence of ace Anthony Davis, who left due to a right foot injury, ended their five-game winning streak with a defeat on the day.

The Lakers, who went 19-22, were in 12th place in the West.

The gap with the Portland Trail Blazers (19-20), which is classified as the marginal line for advancing to the playoffs (PO), is one game because they can participate in the play-in tournament.

Denver’s Jokic played a big role, posting a triple-double with 14 points, 16 assists and 11 rebounds.

Jokic, who succeeded in throwing all five shots, also threw three free throws and did not miss a single one.

Jokic is the first player in NBA history to record a 100% field goal success rate while posting more than 10 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds.

Guard Jeomal Head, who matched with Yokichi, also exploded with 34 points.

In addition, Kentavius ​​Caldwell Pope (16 points), Bruce Brown (15 points), Michael Porter Jr., and Bones Hyland (more than 12 points) also supported double-digit scores.스포츠토토

It was painful for the Lakers that even LeBron James was absent due to ankle pain in the absence of Davis.

Russell Westbrook showed off his offensive instincts for the first time in a long time and posted 25 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists, but he made 7 mistakes and looked uneasy.

Thomas Bryant struggled with 17 points and 10 rebounds under the goal without Davis, but he could not stop Jokic’s performance, who led the attack, crossing the inside and outside.

Jokic recorded 11 assists in the first half to lead Denver to a 62-48 lead.

The Lakers led the chase in the last minute with Westbrook scoring 12 points in the fourth quarter only, but they had to accept defeat without ever narrowing the score to single digits.
