Record for the Heat in the NBA, PSG threatened by Lens and Comex and Noël Le Graët: Sports news on Wednesday

What not to miss between last night and this morning

1. Alpine Skiing – Flachau: For Shiffrin, the record will wait

After the 82nd victory on Sunday, Lindsey Vonn’s record equaled, Mikaela Shiffrin had a first opportunity to be the only queen on Tuesday evening during the Flachau night slalom.

2. Basketball – NBA: Miami offers a record

Beating the Thunder is no feat for Miami. Yet it took all the talent of Jimmy Butler (35 points, 7 rebounds) to overcome (112-111). It also took a hell of a dose of cold blood since the Heat managed the 40 free throws he had to shoot, a new record in NBA history. In the other matches, we note the offensive card of the Sixers against the Pistons (147-116) with a devilishly effective Embiid in just 24 minutes (36 pts, 11 rebounds).

A sluggish but crucial victory against Laval (1-0) allowed Laurent Batlles to save his skin on the bench of the Greens and ASSE, always last, to come back to four points from the first non-relegation. The beginning of the revival in Saint-Etienne? In the other meetings, Le Havre won the evening shock against Sochaux (1-0) and took off in the standings.
