We can’t stop the trailblazers of new looks! | NBA

The defending champs lost their second straight, this time trapped by Portland and his Hart-Simons-Nurkic trio, who quickly took advantage of Antetokounmpo’s absence.

Freshman Serge Ibaka’s good start wasn’t enough. For their third straight win, the Trail Blazers warmed up at the end of the first quarter with long-range missiles from the Hart-Watford-McLemore trio.

But it was in the second quarter that Portland took the lead (40-24), especially with the help of two new 3-pointers from Josh Hart and Anfernee Simmons (45-51) down, leading 11-2, who then went on to singles to show 3/3 behind the arc, this time putting the Bucks on the ropes (48-65).

After Anfernee Simmons’ (54-71) final basket, the Bucks were relegated to 17 games at halftime, after which the Bucks couldn’t worry Portland. Along with Josh Hart and Anfernee Simons, Jusuf Nurkic then took his stone to the building, notably briefly widening the gap to +21 (61-82).

The home team’s comeback attempt in the final act ended when Anfernee Simmons lined up a half-range basket, a 3-pointer and an assist for Jusuf Nurkic’s layup (96-107). The Ellerby-Hart pair, also played by Simmons, did the job from a distance to give Portland a victory (107-122).

what you have to remember

– New momentum in Portland. Oregon State is clearly turning the page, and Chauncey Billups is building a new lease of life with a rejuvenated team. In any case, this third win strengthens the “front office” on the new project, with Anfernee Simons in charge of the gondola, and not only that, but the Hart-Nurkic duo as well. Great help.

–The “Giannis Dependency” of the Bucks. Only one is missing… Yet the Bucks have plenty of weapons to make up for the MVP’s absence. But the way Milwaukee stumbled across the rug in this game reminded us just how important the “Greek Freak” was in Mike Budenholzer’s setup, conceding seven at Jrue Holiday and 1/8 to Khris Middleton. Between 3 points, two lieutenants thwarted their “first choice” in the match.

up/flop

Anfernee SimmonsAlong the way, the Blazers’ Nuggets are still ecstatic. It was him who created the gap with his 3-pointer before halftime, and it was he who made sure to push back the Bucks at the end, both at the end and for Jusuf Nurkic and Ellerby. – Passing from the Elleby-Hart duo. From the great Anfernee Simmons, who had 31 points and 6 assists.

Josh Hart. Inadvertently, the Pelicans’ former Swiss Army Knife is also taking a toll on Portland. His successful adaptation led to a new full game with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists, and was filled with communicative energy.

⛔ Kris Middleton. We expected him to be the Bucks’ offensive leader in the absence of the “Greek Freak,” but the wing has a hole in it, shooting 3/15 from the field and 1/8 from 3-point range. Without Antetokounmpo, he would certainly benefit from less space. His 11 rebounds and nine assists barely made up for his awkwardness, and the Bucks lost at home to the bottom team.
