Yokichi Triple-Double NBA Denver beat Golden State to win its first victory of the season
Last season, Denver Nuggets, led by NBA regular league MVP Nikola Jokic, beat the “defending champion” Golden State Warriors to win their first victory this season.
Denver beat Golden State 128-123 in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league away game at Chase Center in San Francisco, California, on the 21st.
Yokichi took the lead in the victory with a triple-double with 26 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists. In particular, his concentration stood out in the final match of the fourth quarter.
14 seconds before the end of the game, when Jordan Poole was chased by one point by allowing a layup, he secured the victory by scoring a bold high pass toward Bruce Brown in front as soon as he stepped back to the end line.
Brown also added 20 points, boasting high-sensitivity shots that made eight out of 10 field goals. Yokichi
In Golden State, Stephen Curry scored 34 points, including 3 points and 5 hits, but he knelt down due to Yokichi’s last-minute performance.
In the first half, Denver overwhelmed Golden State outside, leading 70-52. While Denver scored 14 three points out of 22, Golden State had only five.
In Golden State, which was being dragged, Draymond Green became a troubleshooter and narrowed the gap in the third quarter.
From the middle of the quarter, he narrowed the gap to less than 10 points by delivering seven consecutive points and assists, and in the fourth quarter, he showed a strong pressure defense with Andrew Wiggins, inducing Denver’s five errors.
One minute before the end of the game, Curry and Clay Thompson scored three points in a row to chase 119-123.
14 seconds before the end, he followed 123-124 with a lay-up score from the pool that took the opponent’s ball after a pressure defense, but as soon as Jokic picked up the ball that fell without giving a gap, he threw a long-range inbound pass toward Brown.
Brown, who stood alone on the opponent’s court and received it, dunked the game and ended the game.
In Brooklyn, New York, the Brooklyn Nets also beat the Toronto Raptors 109-105 to report their first win of the season.
Kevin Durant scored 27 points and 6 assists, and Kyrie Irving scored 30 points and 7 assists. Ben Simmons also scored only six points, but added 10 rebounds, eight assists, and two block shots.
All five Toronto starters, including Pascal Siakam, who scored 37 points, scored double-digit points, but failed to prevent the team from losing.
Toronto tied the game 100-100 with three points from OG Anunovi with 1:46 left. Then Brooklyn’s one-two punch Irving and Durant made jump shots one after another to secure the victory.
In the “Rudy Gover” derby between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Utah Jazz in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Utah laughed 132-126 after a neck-and-neck race.
