While Boston and Toronto have the second play-off round with 3-0 victories before their eyes, Dallas is after game three against the Los Angeles Clippers with 1: 2. And fears about superstar Luka Doncic.

Mavs lose and fear for Doncic


In the Western Conference, the Dallas Mavericks with Maxi Kleber are behind in the series against the Los Angeles Clippers. In-game three, the Mavericks lost 122: 130 (54:68). Superstar Luka Doncic scored only 13 points with a weak throw rate and was injured in the third quarter. He twisted his left ankle, which he had already slightly injured himself in game one, and hobbled into the cabin. A comeback attempt by the Slovenian failed.

Thanks to ten rebounds and ten assists, Doncic still posted his first triple-double in the play-offs. Kleber, who started as a center, hit only one of his five throws and got five points and four rebounds. Will Doncic be fit by the fourth game on Sunday evening? An MRI should provide information about the severity of the injury.

Celtic Run at the End – Raptors make franchise history


The Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors are about to move into the second playoff round. Boston, with German international Daniel Theis in the starting lineup, also won the third game in the series against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics scored the last ten points of the game at just under 102: 94 (51:49) in the last two minutes.

The best player in the Celtics was all-star Kemba Walker with 24 points and eight rebounds. This contributed eight points, five rebounds, and two blocks to the success, but had to end the game early after his sixth foul.

Defending champions Toronto also lead 3-0 in their series against the Brooklyn Nets after a convincing 117:92 win – for the first time in franchise history.

Utah clearly defeated Denver


Led by Mike Conley, who returned to the Bubble in Orlando after the birth of his child and after the subsequent quarantine, the Utah Jazz clearly won 124-87 against the Denver Nuggets and lead with 2-1 wins in the series.
