Hawks Beat Magic, Nuggets Beat Grizzlies
Hawks Handled Magic Their 7th Defeat
The Magic acquired their seventh loss of the season on Monday night after they were beaten by the Hawks 81-72 at Philips Arena. This was also the second straight road defeat for an Orlando that is hoping to have more luck at home on Wednesday when they play the Pistons, one of the only three teams they have defeated this current season. For the losing team the top scorer was Glen Davis, who was also the only Magic player that managed to score in double digits.
Things are much different for Atlanta as this was their second win in a row after defeating the Kings at Sacramento on Friday. The Hawks are now 5-4 and the best scorers against Orlando were Al Horford with 15 and Louis Williams with 14.
Nuggets Beat Grizzlies And Handled Memphis Their Second Loss
The Nuggets were visiting the Grizzlies on Monday night and since Memphis is currently one of the best teams in the league and had lost just one game before the one against Denver at FedEx Forum, they were certainly the favorites to get the win, but instead, the visitors acquired their fifth win of the season and managed to handle the home team their second loss after 10 games thanks to a 97-92 victory.
For the winners the best scorer was Danilo Gallinari with 26 while Javalee McGee had 15 and Kenneth Faried 13. For the Grizzlies the best effort came from Rudy Gay, who finished with 22 points while teammate Marc Gasol put up 16 and Zach Randolph 12.
Warriors Beat Mavericks At Dallas
The Warriors improved to 6-5 thanks to their 105-101 victory over the Mavericks at American Airlines Arena in overtime. For the winning team the top scorer was Stephen Curry with 31 points while Harrison Barnes had 20 and David Lee 17. For the home team OJ Mayo had 27 and Chris Kaman 18.
Curry is probably the reason Golden State got the win as he scored 20 of his totals points during the fourth quarter and OT and coach Mark Jackson was certainly pleased with Curry’s effort as he mentioned that “He certainly ran this team down the stretch the way that I envision him running it.”
At the end of the match it seemed as if it was a personal battle between Curry and Mayo, and although the player from the Mavs scored all of the eleven points from his team during overtime, Curry proved to be more valuable and allowed Golden State to remain second in the Pacific Division.
