It was an impressive night for both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. Antetokounmpo scored a season high of 47 points and Middleton tied the Bucks record for career three-pointers in the win over the LA Lakers. Middleton was just coming back after missing eight games due to Covid 19, and he came back with a bang, scoring two three-pointers back to back within 30 seconds. The Lakers will play the Celtics in Boston on Friday and the Bucks will host the Thunder on Friday.

Minnesota Timberwolves 107

Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns had huge games in the Timberwolves victory over Sacramento.

The Kings will return home to play the Toronto Raptors on Friday, and the Timberwolves will host the Spurs for their first back-to-back on Thursday.

Phoenix Suns 105
Dallas Mavericks 98

Without Doncic, the Mavs suffered a Suns defeat, with Devin Booker leading the Suns with 21 points and nine rebounds. It was Chris Paul though who really impressed with a total 14 assists that helped lead the Suns to victory.

Portland Trailblazers 112

Larry Nance Jr. threw a pair of free throws, sinking them right into the basket with 12 seconds left in the game against the Bulls to secure the win amongst a melody of chants from the crowd in his name.
