Paolo Banchero has signed a new record in this superb boot of NBA on a personal level. The basketball player with an Italian passport scored 21 points at Madison Square Garden of New York, where his Orlando Magic lost to the Knicks, hitting the fourth consecutive defeat. The Magic are still looking for their first win of the season, but the 19-year-old continues to amaze.
Paolo Banchero has in fact become the third absolute first choice to start the season with four performances in a row of at least 20 points. In the past, only Oscar Robertson (6 rookie races, in the 1960-1961 season) and Elvin Hayes (even 10, in 1968-1969) had succeeded. After even 54 years, a number 1 in the draft has reached these heights. These are the numbers of his test in the Big Apple: 21 points, 6 out of 13 shooting, 9 out of 11 from the line, 4 rebounds and 2 steals.
NBA 2022, the results of the night (October 25): Banchero, new record and new knockout. Also lose the Utah Jazz
Paolo Banchero also released some statements at the end of the meeting: “It is a process. We have another 78 races ahead, we just need to increase our level of concentration and the sense of urgency. We will be on the field again on Wednesday [contro Cleveland, ndr], the goal will be to get that first win, even if it won’t be easy at all. No team will want to give us a victory: we will have to know how to take it“.
