Nicolas Batum and Evan Fournier winners, Rudy Gobert and Minnesota beaten

Diverse fortunes for the French in the night from Friday to Saturday. Of the five entered, two won: Nicolas Batum and Evan Fournier. The first contributed to the victory of the Los Angeles Clippers at the San Antonio Spurs (113-106), with 20 minutes on the floor for 3 points (at 1/3), 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 5 fouls caused . Alongside Batum, Paul George racked up 32 points to ward off eye-catching Spurs until the last quarter, including 29 points from Devin Vassell. Moussa Diabaté was in the G-League.

Like Batum, it was off the bench that Evan Fournier was used by the Knicks, a first this season after seven matches in the five majors. With fewer minutes than usual (14 against 24.4 average), the Val-de-Marnais scored 2 points (1/4), plus 2 rebounds and 2 assists. Two points is also the gap in favor of New York at the end of the match at the Sixers (106-104) still deprived of Joel Embiid.

Gobert little found, effective Maledon

The other three Blues therefore gave in, starting with Rudy Gobert, whose Timberwolves, at home, were no match for Milwaukee (115-102). The pivot had few balls to exploit (only six shots including one from 3 points, ending with a air ball), for 7 points and 13 rebounds.

Théo Maledon made good use of the 19 minutes spent on the pitch with Charlotte during the big defeat in Memphis (130-99). The former Asvel compiled 7 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 fouls and 1 steal. Killian Hayes played almost as much with Detroit (18 minutes), beaten by Cleveland (112-88), bringing 2 points, 2 assists and 1 rebound (and 3 fouls caused).
