Phoenix Suns march with Durant


With Kevin Durant on the field, the Phoenix Suns remain unbeatable in the NBA and have solidified their status as title contenders heading into the playoffs. The Suns scored 119-115 against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night and extended their winning streak in the world’s top basketball league to seven.

Since moving to Arizona from the Brooklyn Nets, Durant has not lost in the Suns jersey. With 29 points he was the best pitcher for his team. However, the Nuggets, who already have first place in the Western Conference and home field advantage in the playoffs, did without their regular players around MVP candidate Nikola Jokic.

The Oklahoma City Thunder went 114-98 against the Utah Jazz, adding to the concerns of the Dallas Mavericks. OKC would still qualify for the Play-Inn in tenth place, the Mavericks in eleventh place would no longer be qualified. However, the Mavericks around national player Maxi Kleber and the stars Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving still have two games left until the end of the main round, the Thunder only one more.

Certainly not in the playoffs are the Orlando Magic. At 94:118, coach Jamaal Mosley mainly gave the reserves playing time. Moritz Wagner had nine points, four rebounds, two assists and one block in almost 21 minutes. His younger brother Franz Wagner did not play at all.
