Spurs cut the Wizards’ streak after a heart attack extension

No team escaped more than three points in the final five minutes of the game and the five added in the intense and entertaining duel between the San Antonio Spurs and the Washington Wizards that the Texans won 143-146 after overtime.

DeMar DeRozan led the away win with 37 points and 10 assists accompanied by good performances from Dejounte Murray, author of 25 points and 17 rebounds – his personal best sack record – Keldon Johnson (21) and Rudy Gay (17). San Antonio, ranked ninth in the West, has won three straight games and five of its last six games.

Bradley Beal, last week’s NBA player, led Washington with 45 points. The escort left with a bad taste in his mouth after fail the triple that would have forced the second overtime in the collision on the horn.

Both teams finished with an excellent 53% shooting from the field, and it was Gregg popovich who put the negative note to the triumph of his own. “None of the teams has given a defensive recital,” he ironically the preparer of the Texans.

One more day, Russell Westbrook finished with a triple-double, on the 29th of this season and the fifteenth in the last eighteen games. With 22 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists, his effort also went unrewarded.

The base is now just six games away from equaling Oscar Robertson’s historic record, which amassed 181 triple-doubles in the 1960s. With eleven games remaining this season, Westbrook is likely to surpass the Royals and Bucks legend this year.

The Wizards are tenth (27-34) with a game ahead of the Bulls and Raptors in their battle to enter the play-in tournament. The defeat ended his best streak in recent times with eight consecutive victories.
