New York – Tuesday, January 11, 2022 7:15 AM

For Jakob Pöltl and the San Antonio Spurs (15-25) their away trip ends with a 96-111 defeat at the New York Knicks (20-21).

The Texans can keep the game open for three quarters, an 18-2 run of the Knicks at the beginning of the final section brings the home side to winning ways.

“We did our best, but couldn’t prevent the Knicks from pulling away in the final quarter,” wrote the Vienna Center on Facebook.

Pöltl has his 13th double-double this season with 12 points and 10 rebounds, but can not prevent the seventh defeat in the eighth game of the Corona-related weakened Spurs, who have to do without six players. Dejounte Murray leads San Antonio with 24 points. At the Knicks, RJ Barrett is the best thrower with 31 points.

On Thursday night (CEST), the Spurs stragglers receive Houston Rockets (11-31), who have to admit defeat to the Philadelphia 76ers with 91: 111 at home.

Defending champion Milwaukee Bucks (26-17) has to admit defeat at the Charlotte Hornets (22-19) with 99: 103 and missed the revenge for the defeat suffered at the weekend. LaMelo Ball made the decision 15 seconds before the final siren and ended the game with 23 points, Terry Rozier contributed 27 points to the victory.
