After three home wins in a row, the two national basketball players Franz and Moritz Wagner suffered another defeat in the North American professional league NBA and will probably have to say goodbye to participating in the playoffs for good.
The brothers lost with the Orlando Magic at the Memphis Grizzlies with 108:113. The 21-year-old Franz Wagner was the most successful thrower in his team with 25 points, his four-year-old brother Moritz remained without a point for only around five minutes.
Orlando is in 13th place in the Eastern Conference and only has a theoretical chance of participating in the play-in tournament, in which the teams in places seven through ten in each of the two conferences determine the final two participants in the final round.
Warriors with important victory
On the other hand, defending champions Golden State Warriors have a good chance of participating directly in the final series. The San Francisco team celebrated an important 120-109 home win against direct rivals the New Orleans Pelicans and took sixth place in the Western Conference, which would be enough to qualify for the playoffs. The outstanding player in the Warriors was superstar Stephen Curry with 39 points.
Meanwhile, Donovan Mitchell from the Cleveland Cavaliers set a special record. Mitchell scored 44 points in his team's 118-120 loss away to the Atlanta Hawks and now has ten games with at least 40 points this season. In the history of his club, only superstar LeBron James was able to do this.
