NBA results: Trae Young sinks the Sixers - Celtics collapse completely
The Atlanta Hawks end the winning streak of the Philadelphia 76ers after a hard-fought game - Trae Young provides the fatal blow with a game winner in the last second. Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics experience a fourth quarter debacle against the Hornets, while the Jazz celebrate a blowout win. Portland, Sacramento and Miami also celebrate victories.
Charlotte Hornets (33-39) - Boston Celtics (43-30) 124: 117 (BOXSCORE)
The appearance of the Celtics in Charlotte fit symbolically perfectly into the overall picture that the Celts deliver this season. Just like the entire season, this game was a single up and down. After a few minutes Boston was 8 points behind, but thanks to 16 points from Kyrie Irving in the first quarter, the guests turned the game and seemed to take control.
By the half-time break, however, their own 10-point lead was history again. From Celtics' point of view it went into the cabin at 64:63, then it took until the end of the third round for Boston to increase the pressure again.
Led by Irving and Jaylen Brown (29 points, 10/13 FG, 5/6 threesome), the guests pulled away with a 10-0 run, after a few minutes in the fourth quarter the Celts were finally in the front with 18 points. The decision? Not at all. The final section is known to be Kemba Walker's favorite district and that evening the 28-year-old turned it up a notch.
He scored 18 of his 36 points (plus 11 rebounds, 9 assists) in the last round, so he actually led the Hornets back again. Charlotte scored points in the last eight minutes in twelve of her 19 possessions and conjured up a 24: 5 run on the floor. A three from Walker finally gave the home side the lead with 1:19 minutes to go. Boston could not score afterwards and the Hornets celebrated an important comeback victory in the playoff race.
"Maybe we should have defended him with a few more traps, like every other team in the league does," said a visibly pissed off Irving of his team's defense against Walker. "He catches fire against us every time. That's no surprise."
"If you lose an 18-point lead, then of course some things go wrong," admitted head coach Brad Stevens. On the other hand, Walker, who received the most support from rookie Miles Bridges (20), commented on the unexpected victory: "Anything can happen in this league. Once a team gets momentum, a lot can change pretty quickly."
Washington Wizards (30-44) - Miami Heat (36-37) 108: 113 (BOXSCORE)
Incidentally, the Hornets are 2.5 games behind the Miami Heat, which occupy 8th place and thus the last playoff rank in the Eastern Conference. So Charlotte continues to have legitimate hopes for the postseason. After their comeback win against Boston, it was all the more important that Miami reloaded in Washington.
That was thanks to a strong final stretch from Dwyane Wade. The heat legend put up 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and helped his team to a hard-fought victory against the Wizards, who suffered the fourth bankruptcy in a row. A 7-0 run, with which Miami pulled away to 10 points a few minutes before the end, brought the guests onto the road to victory. In the final minutes, however, tremors were announced again.
Washington responded with its own 7-0 run, but a relatively open three-way attempt by Tomas Satoransky 25 seconds before the final buzzer to possibly equalize only landed on the ring. Miami secured the rebound and brought the game from the free throw line to dry towels.
In addition to Wade, Dion Waiters (19), Josh Richardson (18) and Bam Adebayo (16, 11 rebounds, 8 assists) were also convincing. Bradley Beal struggled with problems at the Wizards (16 points, 2/8 threesomes), so Jeff Green became the top scorer of the game with 25 points (9/12 FG) from the bench.
Atlanta Hawks (26-48) - Philadelphia 76ers (47-26) 129: 127 (BOXSCORE)
In the past few weeks and months, Trae Young has really blossomed in the Hawks' jersey, making his desperate start to the season a little forgotten. Against the Sixers, the rookie's next heroic act followed.
After a shot clock violation by the Sixers in their last attack, Atlanta got the ball back with 2.4 seconds on the clock and the score was equal. Unsurprisingly, it immediately went into Young's hands. The 20-year-old pulled to the basket against Jimmy Butler's close defense and sent a floater on its way - in!
The game winner 0.1 seconds before the end was duly celebrated with the Silencer move by LeBron James, who cooked the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. "These are the kind of plays you live for when the clock is ticking," Young said afterwards. "I just wanted to play to my strengths, this midrange floater that I have."
Young put a crazy end to a previously hard-fought game. The lead changed 19 times between the Hawks and Sixers, in the end Atlanta was able to end the six-game winning streak of the Sixers thanks to Young's 32 points (plus 11 assists). A few days ago the Hawks were able to finish the Jazz run (5 wins in a row).
Young received support mainly from Taurean Prince (23), on the other hand Joel Embiid (27 and 12 rebounds), Jimmy Butler (25) and Ben Simmons (21 and 9 assists) were the best players.
