Booker marvels at how Durant shoots

Attacking guard, one of the leaders of the Phoenix Suns Devin Booker expressed his opinion about the newcomer Kevin Durant.

Durant has appeared in 52 games this season, averaging 29.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game.

The Phoenix Suns take fourth place in the Western Conference with 34 wins and 29 losses.

Milwaukee expelled the Georgian striker

The Milwaukee Bucks have expelled Georgian forward Sandro Mamukelashvili.

Last season, Milwaukee sent a rookie to their farm club, the Wisconsin Heard. The striker had a two-way contract, so he could play in both the NBA and the G-League. It was for this reason that the decision was made to part with the player. Now the team is looking for a new player on a bilateral agreement.

The Georgian basketball player was selected with the 54th pick in the 2021 draft. This season, Mamukelashvili took part in 24 NBA games, averaging 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

Monty Williams is concerned about the high pressure that players on the team are feeling. People expect them to act like real leaders, but the coach thinks that it is not a necessity. And he says that it is actually his job in the first place. Before the game, he told Durant that he shouldn’t be a leader he just should do what he does best: be himself and shoot balls.

Durant gets honest about his first match 

Phoenix Suns player Kevin Durant praised his first match in the game with the Charlotte Hornets (105:91). Durant joined the Suns in a trade from the Brooklyn Nets on February 9.

German point guard “Los Angeles Lakers” Dennis Schroeder after the victorious game of the regular season of the National Basketball Association with the “Oklahoma City Thunder” (123:117) told about the team’s desire to get into the playoff zone.

In general, it is common for players and teams to focus on making the playoffs as it is a major goal in the NBA season. The playoffs consist of the top eight teams from each conference competing in a best-of-seven series to determine the NBA champion. Teams without key players or team leaders may face challenges in making the playoffs, but it is not impossible with strong teamwork and determination.

“Everything for the team, we just want to get into the playoffs. Anthony Davis and LeBron James were out and didn’t play today and I was just helping my team win,” Schroeder said after the match.

LeBron will miss at least another two weeks because of the trauma. Anthony Davis missed the game with a stress injury in his right heel.

Schroeder represented the most impressive moments of the match. He had 26 points, two rebounds, and six assists.
