Obi Toppin 8 octobre 2022

Obi Toppin loves dunk contests, but in the middle of a match



Big basketball night that is ending, and inevitably big lines to write about what happened on the NBA floors since 1 a.m. On the front page? Blake Griffin in the Celtics jersey, Duncan Robinson who wants to scratch a max contract, Luka Doncic who plays basketball again and Obi Toppin who does things you can’t even do on 2K. Recap? Recap.

The results of the night

In the first match of the evening? We made a little face when we saw that neither Tatum, nor Smart, nor Horford, nor Brogdon nor Larry Bird would be in uniform, unlike Blake Griffin, very present and author of his first shot scored with Boston, and his only match elsewhere. Opposite it did not prevent the Hornets from losing for the third time in three games despite a start at mile an hour thanks to LaMelo Ball. At the same time, in New York, two men from Indiana were giving us a lot of fun (Tyrese Haliburton and Bennedict Mathurin) but this season the Knicks are undefeated (2-0) and are therefore on the road to an incredible regular record (82-0). Yes, because if Obi Toppin crashes 24 (4/7 from the parking lot) off the bench every night, while winning dunk contests in the middle of a match, sure that the New York franchise can get the ring, face at the Thunder in the final for example.

Otherwise ? Nikola Jokic did not play against the Bulls, Scottie Barnes still did not find the target in this pre-season, Ja Morant still hovered but opposite Duncan Robinson scored 29 points in 29 minutes, imagine if he had played 200 minutes. Hey, it’s still the young and tall Tari Eason who impressed the most among the Houston cracks (24 points), well, Killian Hayes released a killianesque match (5/7/6/2/2). In front of the young Pistons, the no less young but more experienced Pels did not have to force, and at the same time give them 80 wins too if Jose Alvarado begins to approach thirty points every night (28 tonight). Finally, Luka Doncic found his way back to the courts (16 points at 6/8 shooting) but fortunately for him there was no Pole opposite, just an Italian-American since the first pick of the 2022 Draft Paolo Banchero stuck 19 in the victory of the Magic against the future disappointment of the West, a beautiful risky, gratuitous and unfounded sentence to end this summary of the night.
