Victor Wembanyama playing in the rhythm of a quadruple double, putting the ball between his legs, wishes for his wife and intrigues in the West and the East – this and more – on the pulse of the NBA on April 3.

April 3 NBA pulse

ALIEN. In the Western Conference, there was a confrontation between the leaders and the last place team – the Denver Nuggets defeated the San Antonio Spurs 110:105.

The highlight of the meeting was the direct duel between Nikola Jokic and Victor Wembanyama. The Serb collected 42 points, 16 rebounds and 6 assists in 37.5 minutes, the Frenchman had 23 points, 15 rebounds, 8 assists and even 9 blocks.

Wembanyama was 2 assists and 1 block short of the fifth quadruple double in NBA history.

“He made maybe 600 blocks tonight, but we won,” Jokic joked after the game.

RETURN. With a healthy Joel Embiid, the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Oklahoma Thunder 109-105.

Embiid, who did not play for two months, had 24 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists.

BETWEEN THE LEGS. The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Toronto Raptors 128-111 on the road, and the game was marked by an impressive layup by Jaxson Hayes.

The Lakers’ big man started a quick attack in the fourth quarter and finished it off effectively by making a layup but before putting the ball between his legs.

Having won 7 of their last 8 games, the Lakers are in ninth place in the Western Conference and still have a chance to reach sixth place with 6 rounds left in the regular season.

WIFE. “Thank God, wishes for my wife. She’s a great person, she fills my house, she’s beautiful and the best thing I’ve ever seen,” said Washington Wizards’ Anthony Gill into a clip-on microphone before the game.

Gill collected 12 points and 9 rebounds, and the Wizards beat the Milwaukee Bucks 117-113.

SERB. Tristan Vukčević, who left Partizan Belgrade and joined the Washington Wizards less than a month ago, played a career game in the NBA.

The Serbian talent was able to appear as much as 31 minutes and scored 14 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists.

SERIES. Domantas Sabonis continues to be unstoppable. This time, the Lithuanian scored 22 points in 35 minutes (8/14 doubles, 0/3 triples, 6/10 penalties), caught 20 balls and intercepted 2 balls, handed out 9 assists, made 4 mistakes and was fouled once.

It was the anniversary, Domant’s tenth meeting in which he exceeds the 20-point and 20-rebound mark. The tall man also extended his double-double streak to 58. It was his 71st double-double of the season overall.

Led by Sabonis, the Sacramento Kings defeated the Washington Wizards 109-95.

FLIGHT. There was no shortage of good cheer on the Indiana Pacers plane to Brooklyn. Team leader Tyrese Haliburton wished Pascal Siakam and Jalen Smith’s fiancee Kayla a happy birthday.

In addition, Haliburton did not perform the birthday song himself, but gave this task to the team’s rookies Jarace Walker and Ben Sheppard.

WESTERN INTRIGUE. Luka Doncic had a triple-double, but the Dallas Mavericks lost an important battle for a direct playoff spot, falling 100-104 to the Golden State Warriors.

Doncic had 30 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in 39 minutes.

The Mavs (45-30) remain sixth in the West after this loss, but four more clubs have a chance to overtake them: Phoenix Suns (44-31), Sacramento Kings (44-31), Los Angeles Lakers ( 43-33) and the Warriors (41-34).

COMPETITION. Mavericks and Warriors leaders Luka Doncic and Steph Curry found activities for themselves before the game. The men tested who is better in the midfield shooting competition.

EASTERN INTRIGUE. The most important battles also began in the Eastern Conference, where the Miami Heat achieved a very important victory 109:99 against the New York Knicks.

The Heat (42-33) are just one win away from a guaranteed sixth place in the playoffs. It is currently held by the Indiana Pacers (43-33). What’s more, the Philadelphia 76ers (41-35) could still shake things up with a healthy Joel Embiid.
