Eerste nederlaag voor titelverdediger in NBA, forse straffen voor spelers die op de vuist gingen

The Denver Nuggets have Sunday defending champion Golden State Warriors to a first seizoensnederlaag bounded. For Denver, that meant the third win in as many duels in the NBA. For the defending champion Warriors, it was the first defeat of the season, 100-98.

The loss seemed to be still more than 8 minutes on the clock and a deficit of 13 points all coming, but three triples from Stephen Curry in a span of a minute and a half gave the Warriors back the connection. The Nuggets, Gary Harris (28 points) as top scorer, trembled. With 7 seconds on the clock had Jamal Murray on behalf of the home team from the vrijeworplijn the difference back to two points brought up and then Curry, good for 30 points, his teammate Jones aanspeelde under the basket. Hernangomez had the danger seen and prevented with an impressive block that extra time was needed.

The NBA informed further Sunday penalties to three players Saturday in the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets misbehaving. Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo, both of the Lakers, respectively, for four and for three duels suspended, Houstonspeler Chris Paul should be two duels and watch. The three will also receive any salary over that period.

With still over 4 minutes on the clock and a small lead for the Rockets made Ingram a violation on James Harden. In the ensuing uproar became Paul and Rondo clashed. That started after Rondo had spitting at his opponent. Ingram was then with me, then the fighters to the locker room were sent. Houston won the duel with 115-124. It was the first thuisduel of superstar LeBron James with the LA Lakers.
