Tatum, Harden, Giannis Shine As Warriors Keep Winning

Jonathan Grant | November 20th, 2021

It was a very big night in the NBA on Friday night with a full slate of games on display, and that meant that some stars were inevitably going to take over. That’s exactly what happened. We’ll start in Boston with the Celtics and Jayson Tatum as he took the Los Angeles Lakers to school in a 130-108 victory. He scored 37 points for the hosts, overcoming a slow start in which he made just one of his opening five shots, all while also grabbing 11 rebounds. LeBron James returned after missing eight games of action, but the purple and gold still fell below .500 while the C’s moved to 8-8 with the win.

James Harden was also having a banner night on the evening, helping the Brooklyn Nets come from behind by as many from a 19-point deficit to defeat the Orlando Magic 115-113. Harden had 36 points, 19 of which came from the charity stripe, as well as ten rebounds. And he fell two assists short of a triple-double. Not a bad outing, and it made up for the lack of Kevin Durant in the lineup. Giannis was not to be outdone by the previous two, though, and we have to mention his exploits as the Milwaukee Bucks ground their way past the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-89. Giannis was fairly quiet with ‘just’ 21 points offensively, but he also had a monstrous game on the boards, picking up 19 rebounds. He’d also dish out seven assists and recorded a ferocious block at one stage that will be in highlight clips for a while. Meanwhile, in Detroit, the Golden State Warriors rode the shooting of Jordan Poole to defeat the Pistons 105-102 without Steph Curry featuring. That makes them 14-2 so far, and it continues to show they actually are a very good team and a contender once again.
