NBA Scores Today, 11th Jan 2019: Jazz beat Lakers, Warriors rout Bulls and more
It was a full action-packed night in the NBA as 18 teams hit the court. We can call the night as the "night of the blowouats", as we saw a majority of the games being one-sided tonight.
The day had minimal effect on the poles of the Conference Standings. The Toronto Raptors lead the Eastern Conference standings, whereas the Denver Nuggets are the leaders of the West. Let me take you through the NBA results for tonight.
Washington Wizards beat Milwaukee Bucks
The Wizards defeated the Giannis-less Bucks as Bradley Beal went off for 32 points. They had a great game from beyond the arc as they shot 18 three-pointers out of 33 attempted.
The Bucks were without Giannis, so Middleton stood up in his absence and scored 25 points. Six players were in double figures but that was not enough as the Wizards were too good from the three-point line.
Score: Bucks 106-113 Wizards
Atlanta Hawks beat Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadephia 76ers rely heavily on Embiid and have lost two games this season without him. But with players like Butler, Simmons and JJ on the team, do they need him against a team like the Atlanta Hawks? Yes! They do!
The Atlanta Hawks upset the Embiid-less 76ers tonight with a great team effort. Kevin Huerter topscoredhttps://www.sportskeeda.com/go/mlbhttps://www.sportskeeda.com/go/mlb fo
