After Orlando magic forward Jonathan Isaac became the only basketball player not to kneel during the US national anthem before a game with the Brooklyn nets, jerseys with his name became very popular. Their stocks in warehouses have almost run out. At the same time, only LeBron James jerseys are better sold.
“It seems that Isaac’s views have found a lot of fans, they show that not everyone is equal to these protests. No matter how peaceful they may be, ” write about this effect on the portal Fadeaway World.
Isaac was injured in a regular-season NBA game against the Sacramento kings (132:116). He injured his left knee and left the court in a wheelchair. Isaac spent 14 minutes and 36 seconds on the court, scoring 4 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds.
Luka Doncic broke LeBron James ‘ phenomenal record
Dallas Mavericks defenseman Luka Doncic scored 40 points, 11 assists and 8 assists in the NBA regular season game against the Phoenix suns (115:117), according to columnist Justin Kubatko on his Twitter page.
Doncic had the fifth career game in which he scored at least 40 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds. This is the best indicator in the history of the NBA for basketball players who are under the age of 22. Luka surpassed Los Angeles Lakers light forward LeBron James and Atlanta hawks point guard Trey young (4 games each), with whom he previously shared the top spot. The legendary Michael Jordan at the age of 22 played only 2 games with the conquest of the statistical line 40-10-5.
Westbrook set an outstanding career record and conquered Harden’s fantastic achievement
Houston rockets quarterback Russell Westbrook recorded 31 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists in the regular season game against the Milwaukee Bucks (120:116).
Westbrook had his 36th consecutive game with 20 or more points, a career high for a basketball player. During this stretch, Westbrook averaged 30.7 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 6.9 assists with 50.5% accuracy per game.
Westbrook has the longest streak with more than 20 points among all NBA players this season. Russell’s streak is also the fifth longest in League history. Westbrook shares this position with his teammate James Harden, who last season also issued a stretch of 36 games with 20+ points scored. Russell can surpass James in the next regular-season game.
