Basketball: Wembanyama and Haliburton delight!

by Sebastien Salpietro (iDalgo)

Sixth victory in a row for the Nuggets after their victory against the Grizzlies last night (142-105). Nikola Jokic has once again entered NBA history thanks to a triple-double (26 pts, 14 rebounds, 10 steps) with 100% shooting success. The Serbian pivot joins Wilt Chamberlain among the players who have achieved this performance in several matches. Tyrese Haliburton also played during the Pacers’ victory in Chicago (120-104). With 21 points and 20 assists, he became the second player in history to achieve a match more than 20-20 without any turnover, after Chris Paul. A welcome performance for Indiana which is one and a half victories away from the top 6, just like that of Victor Wembanyama who allowed the Spurs to win in Portland (118-105). The Frenchman scored 30 units, accompanied by 6 rebounds and 6 assists in a distance duel with Scoot Henderson, third in the draft, who passed the 25 point mark for the first time in his young career.
