Usman Garuba enjoys the only Spanish victory in the long NBA day

Serge Ibaka and the Bucks interrupt their immaculate streak and Juancho Hernangómez and Santi Aldama also fall; Willy Hernangómez, without minutes


The power forward Usman Garuba has offered the only victory of Spanish flavor in the long day of the NBA, with the 30 franchises at stake, while Juancho Hernangómez, Sergi Ibaka and Santi Aldama have lost with their respective teams and Willy Hernangómez is still without have minutes with the Pelicans.

The man from La Mancha enjoyed almost 19 minutes in the second victory of the course for the Houston Rockets (2-9), bottom player in the Western Conference, at the home of the Orlando Magic (127-134), contributing three points, six rebounds, two assists and one plug in his time on court, all in a game in which the 34 points from point guard Jalen Green were vital for the Texans.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks (9-1) gave up their first loss of the season against the Atlanta Hawks who didn’t even need the presence of Trae Young (117-98), a result that still doesn’t take them out of the lead in the East. Spanish-Congolese power forward Serge Ibaka scored four points and grabbed four rebounds in just 11 minutes of participation.

More or less the same time Juancho Hernangómez was on the court in the away loss of the Toronto Raptors, fifth in the East (6-5), against the Chicago Bulls (111-97). The man from Madrid continues to gain presence, although little by little, and tonight he was able to sign up five points, two rebounds, an assist and a block at the United Center.

For his part, the Canarian midfielder Santi Aldama, with eight points and one rebound, was also unable to celebrate a victory with the Memphis Grizzlies, who lost to the Boston Celtics (106-109) led by Jayson Tatum, who broke the game with 39 points. Those from Tennessee, even so, continue in sixth place in the West (7-4).

Finally, Willy Hernangómez from Madrid is still not included in Willie Green’s plans for the New Orleans Pelicans (5-5) and did not have minutes in the game that the team lost this morning against the Indiana Pacers (129-122).
