April 25, 2016 in Sports News
-Portland won its first game against the Clippers. A victory that had as high architects, Damian Lillard and C. J. McCollum. Also a splendid performance from Mason Plumlee. The Oregon team took the house with 96-88 victory to shorten distances. Now the Clippers domination is held only by a 2-1.
The Local team won with a balanced match played with a defensive rhythm. Lillard and McCollum were separately in 50% of shots and totaled 59 points. Nothing compared with what happened in the two previous matches. The point guard added 32 points and the shooting guard, 27. But do not leave out Plumlee. He only scored 6 points. But he grabbed 21 rebounds and 9 assists. Tremendous center.
In the Clippers the terrible match was clear. Noted J.J. Redick, who played blankly, dull performance of Blake Griffin, who lacks pace. Jeff Green also did not add as expected. And DeAndre Jordan (11 points and 16 rebounds) was not close to Plumlee.
The best visitors were Chris Paul with 26 points and 9 assists and Jamal Crawford with 19 points.
-Indiana has evened the series pitting it against Toronto (2-2). They achieved an easy victory. A comfortable 100-83 victory based on defense. With the success of George Hill and Ian Mahinmi. The visitor duo, Kyle Lowry – DeMar DeRozan has failed again.
The 28-16 in the first quarter was already symptomatic. Then there was no match. Indiana dominated from start to finish.
George Hill with 22 points on 9 of 11 in shooting and center Ian Mahinmi added 22 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists were the Pacers leaders, adding Paul George, 19 points. Very discreet in the attack, Monta Ellis and the rookie Myles Turner in the shot 2-13. Frank Vogel advocated some lineup changes that were fruitful.
Toronto not effective in attack. Finished with 36.5% in field goal and lost 17 turnovers. Its stars, bad performances. Lowry and DeRozan only added 20 points with a series of 8 of 27 in shooting. Jonas Valančiūnas scored 16 points. And Luis Scola was again a frustrated starter.
