DeRozan’s 50 points are Chicago’s lifeline, the Lakers continue to sink, Philadelphia is strong in Detroit. And the Gallinari Hawks mathematically conquer the “Play-In”. These are the titles of the NBA games of the Italian night.

Hurricane DeMar hits the Clippers. DeRozan scores 50 points, 17 in the 4th quarter, 10 in added time, and offers the Bulls (45-32) a very valuable success to consolidate the position of the playoffs and avoid any fear of “Play-in”. This time the Clippers (37-40), specialists in the seasonal return, undergo a sensational one, squandering the 16-point lead accumulated in the third quarter. For coach Lue, Jackson’s 34 points and the presence of the recovered George are not enough, which still gives Californians hope for a “Play-In” in perspective, now certain. Probably from the eighth force in the west.

Chicago: DeRozan 50 (17/24, 2/2, 14/15 tl), Vucevic 22, LaVine 21. Rebounds: Vucevic 14. Assist: Caruso 7.

Los Angeles: Jackson 34 (6/14, 6/9, 4/4 tl), George 22, Morris 20. Rebounds: Zubac 9. Assists: Jackson 7.

Utah returns to success after 5 straight losses, thus overcoming Denver and regaining possession of fifth place in the West. The Jazz (46-21) recover Bogdanovic and leave the Lakers no chance without the injured James and Davis who will try to return for the crucial challenge with the Pelicans. Because now Los Angeles (31-45), after this umpteenth knockout, has been overtaken by San Antonio in tenth place in the Western Conference and even risks staying out of the “Play-In”. In Utah, Mitchell and Gobert run rampant, Westbrook and Howard’s fair tests aren’t enough.

Utah: Mitchell 29 (7/12, 4/10, 3/4 tl), Gobert 25, Clarkson 19. Rebounds: Gobert 17. Assist: Mitchell 7.

Los Angeles:Westbrook 24 (9/16, 0/2, 6/10 tl), Howard 21, Monk 14. Rebounds: Howard 12. Assists: Westbrook 7.

detroit-philadelphia 102-94

Detroit (21-56) reserves the surprise of the evening. He coined a 29-15 partial crease final quarter and Philly trailed Cunningham, who is vying with the Cavs’ Mobley for the freshman of the year. This time he scored 27 points, although it was Bey’s 10 in the last 5′ of the race that made the difference. For the 76ers (46-30), now fourth in the East, in the third straight loss, the usual monumental Embiid is not enough, this time with 37 points and 15 rebounds: Harden (18 points) shoots 4 /15 from the field, team coach Rivers just 7/26 from 3 points.

Detroit: Cunningham 27 (12/17, 0/3, 3/4 tl), Bey 20, Olynyk 12. Rebounds: Stewart 12. Assists: Cunningham 6.

philadelphia cream: Embiid 37 (10/17, 1/2, 14/16 tl), Harden 18, Harris 14. Rebounds: Embiid 15. Assists: Harden 7.

atlanta-cleveland 131-107

Fourth consecutive victory for the Hawks, which arithmetically ensure entry to the “Play-In” and feature Brooklyn and Charlotte with 40 wins, 37 losses. The positions on the grid for the play-offs of the play-offs are to be discovered. On the other hand, the result of the race with the remodeled Cavs (42-35) was discarded, which without Mobley, Allen and Rondo lost for the fifth time in the last 6 races. Detached from Chicago and Toronto, the direct entry into the playoffs now seems a chimera, if we must look back and defend seventh place in the East. Young scores 30 points, Hawks never under for 48′. For Gallinari, recently hit by a bruised right elbow, 4 points off the bench, +11 plus/minus.

Atlanta: Young 30 (5/8, 4/9, 8/8 tl), Huerter 23, Okongwu 17. Rebounds: Cappella 14. Assists: Young 9. GALLINARI 4 points (2/7), 4 rebounds, 3 assists in 23 ‘ .

Cleveland: Osman 21 (4/4, 3/6, 4/6 tl), Garland 18, Brown 15. Rebounds: Brown 13. Assists: Garland 8.
