Tuesday night in the NBA left little participation of the Spanish players that entered in liza and between the pivot Pau Gasol (San Antonio Spurs), baseman Jose Manuel Calderon (Detroit Pistons) and forward Alex Abrines (Oklahoma City Thunder) added just over a dozen minutes.
The veteran player of Sant Boi only enjoyed three minutes to score a free kick in the tight triumph of the Spurs by 126-124 against Phoenix Suns, the third consecutive of the Texas franchise that takes hold in the posts of 'playoffs' of the Western Conference.
Rudy Gay was the local hero when he scored on the trumpet basket the ninth setback followed by the Arizona, who could not take advantage of the great game of Devin Booker, author of 38 points. LaMarcus Aldridge, with 29 points and 14 rebounds, was the best of the Spurs.
They also won the team of Alex Abrines, who returned to action after 17 games out and that he had six minutes to score a triple in the victory of Okhlahoma City Thunder 117-126 with 'triple-double' Russell Westbrook (23, 14 and 14) and 37 points Paul George.
For its part, the Extremaduran base José Manuel Calderón could not add victory with Detroit Pistons, after losing at home with the leaders of the Eastern Conference, Milwaukee Bucks, by 105-115. Villanueva de la Serena played three minutes and contributed nothing in a statistic where his teammate Blake Griffin excelled (18 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds) and the visitor Giannis Antetokounmpo (21 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds).
