Back in business after the interruption of the NBA season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Milwaukee has resumed a hellish pace. And its star Giannis Antetokounmpo once again splashed the match with all his talent.
After more than four months of forced shutdown, due to the coronavirus health crisis, the NBA resumed on July 30.Last night, the general leader of the League made his comeback against a heavy opponent: Boston. Everything went well for Milwaukee, who won against the 3rd in the Eastern Conference (119-112) with once again a great Giannis Antetokounmpo, top scorer of the match. The Greek flew over the debates, ending the meeting in double-doubles for the benefit of his 36 points and 15 rebounds. In the lead, the Bucks now have 54 wins against 12 losses.
The other key meeting of the evening gave rise to a real fireworks display. Houston ended up defeating Dallas in overtime with a score of 149-153. NBA’s most famous bearded man, James Harden, blew the scoring away with 49 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. His friend Russell Westbrook for his part finished the match in double-double with 31 points and 11 rebounds. Despite such staggering statistics, the Mavericks gave them a hard time, like the Latvian Kirstaps Porzingis (39 points-16 rebounds) or the Slovenian Luka Doncic to his advantage also with a triple-double (28 points- 13 rebounds-10 assists). The Rockets are 5th in the West, two places above their Texas neighbor.
Finally, the last meeting saw San Antonio defeat Sacramento 129-120, thanks in particular to DeMar DeRozan (27 points-5 rebounds-10 assists). The former franchise of Tony Parker, 10th in the Western Conference, is still battling to hook a sesame for the playoffs. As for the Kings, 12th, their record is almost similar.

Thirty-six of 50 largest cities experience double-digit rise in homicides in 2020
An analysis by the Wall Street Journal, which was published on Sunday, showed that homicides, shootings, and gun violence in the 50 largest cities rose in 2020, with murders, in particular increasing by 24% so far this year, to 3,612. Thirty-six of the 50 cities have experienced at least a 10% rise in homicides.
While the murder rate has increased in a majority of the largest cities, other types of crime, including burglary and rape, are down this year.
Much of the country has been locked down in response to the coronavirus this year, and after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, there has been a wave of anti-police sentiment, leading to calls for entire police departments to be defunded or even disbanded.
Chicago, the city with the most number of homicides, is averaging one about every eight nights. The total number of murders in the city in July climbed 139% compared to the same month in 2019. There were 105 homicides in July compared to 44 in the previous year, and the city is up 51% from the same point last year.
President Trump has sought to quell violence by sending federal law enforcement officers into some cities, blaming their Democratic leaders, but the report notes that homicides are jumping at a double-digit rate mostly in cities run by Republicans.News Crime Law Enforcement Chicago Gun Violence
