Minnesota yields to Houston as Pelicans beat Mavericks without Luka Doncic

The Houston Rockets took revenge this morning for the loss of the previous night against the Minnesota Timberwolves with a victory (129-107) that allowed them to extend their distance over the Minneapolis in the Western Conference, on an NBA day in which the New Orleans Pelicans of the Spanish Willy Hernangómez beat Dallas Mavericks without Luka Doncic or Kristaps Porzingis (112-103).

In the second game in a row at the Target Center, the Wolves could not overcome the income of the visiting team this time, sustained by the 25 points of Kevin Porter Jr., enough despite the ‘double-double’ of 27 points and 15 rebounds from Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards’ 27 goals.

Meanwhile, the Madrid center Juancho Hernangómez spent 17 minutes on the court, in which he contributed 9 points and 5 rebounds, and the Catalan point guard Ricky Rubio scored 4 points, captured 4 rebounds, offered 10 assists, recovered 3 balls and put 1 block in their 26 minutes of participation.

For its part, New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Dallas Mavericks (112-103) at the hands of Zion Williamson, who with 38 points allowed Stan Van Gundy’s men to achieve the third win in the last four games. On this occasion and unlike the previous day, the local coach did have Willy Hernangómez from Madrid, who signed 5 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal.

Finally, the Spanish-Congolese power forward Serge Ibaka continues with back pain and has not been able to participate in the fifth consecutive victory of the Los Angeles Clippers against the Philadelphia 76ers (122-112), which keeps them in third place of the Western Conference.

JUANCHO HERNANGÓMEZ: 9 points and 5 rebounds.

RICKY RUBIO: 4 points, 4 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals and 1 block.

WILLY HERNANGÓMEZ: 5 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal.

SERGE IBAKA: He didn’t play.
