Golden State Dunks on Washington, The Pacers Lose to Utah

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – It was a night of polar opposites for Bahamian NBA stars Klay Thompson and Buddy Hield. Thompson lit it up from beyond the arc and his Golden State Warriors beat the Washington Wizards while Hield records a dud as his team fell to the Utah Jazz. 

Klay Thompson Dunks All Over the Wizards

Thompson scored 27 points along with 5 assists and 4 rebounds as his Golden State Warriors beat the Washington Wizards 135-126. 

Thompson made 10 of 21 shot attempts including 4 out of 13 threes and one monster dunk of Kristaps Porzingis as his squad stormed back from a 13-point deficit in the 2nd quarter to close out the half with a 5-point lead. 

The Dubs asserted their control in the 2nd half, leading by as many as 20 points. The Wizards would make the score look respectable, but it was never close. 

Andrew Wiggins had 29, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for Golden State. Donte DiVincenzo added 17 off the bench. Kristaps Porzingis led the Wiz with 34 points. Brad Beal had 33. 

The dubs are in Los Angeles tonight to take on the Clippers. 

Hield Held to 8 as Indy Fell to the Utah Jazz

It was a rough night for Grand Bahama’s Buddy Hield as his Indiana Pacers fell to the Utah Jazz. 122-117.

Hield was held to 9 points on 3 of 13 shooting for the game. He made only 2 of his 11 three-point attempts. 

Despite the off night from Hield, the Pacers were in the game until the end, being down only two points with one minute left in the game. However, they weren’t able to close the game out.

Tyrese Haliburton had 30 points and 12 assists for the Pacers. Ben Mathurin had 21 off the bench. Jordan Clarkson and Lauri Markkanen had 29 apiece for the Jazz with Markkanen adding 11 rebounds. 

This is the Pacers’ 5th straight loss with one game left to go before the all-star break. Hield, a pricey veteran on a floundering team, should have been a near-lock to be traded, however, a rumored trade with the Los Angeles Lakers fell through. 

Time will tell whether or not the Pacers decide to buy Hield out or will hold out to see if they can orchestrate an offseason trade.
