 NBA: Because of Giannis: No extension for Adebayo? Bam Adebayo is one of the hottest candidates for the Most Improved Player award. The Miami Heat center could sign an early contract extension this summer. However, it is doubtful that the Heat will do this, since everything is geared towards the summer of 2021 and Giannis Antetokounmpo. © provided by SPOX Bam Adebayo could sign a rookie extension from summer.

“We didn't have our best four out there, so obviously it's an opportunity for everybody coming up and next man up mentality,” Luwawu-Cabarrot said.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 16 points playing only the first half for Milwaukee, which has lost two of three seeding games. Kyle Korver scored 13 points, and Ersan Ilyasova had 12 points and 10 rebounds. Frank Mason III added 11 points.

Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer wanted to get some of his Bucks rest at this point in the schedule.

“Thursday or whenever it is we play Miami we’ll be back to something more what I guess you’d consider normal and continue to build toward the start of the playoffs,” Budenholzer said.

The Bucks sounded eager to forget this loss.

“We’ve got to move on," said guard Eric Bledsoe, who made his bubble debut. "Things like this happen. It happened last year. No one’s perfect. We’ve got a great team, but no one’s perfect.”

NBA: Fine for Smart After Referee Criticism

 NBA: Fine for Smart After Referee Criticism Marcus Smart of the Boston Celtics receives a fine of $ 15,000 after criticizing the referees. This is reported by NBA insider Shams Charania (The Athletic). © Provided by SPOX Marcus Smart battled the Milwaukee Bucks with the referees.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 36 points, 18 rebounds and eight assists for Milwaukee. He joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players to have 15 games with at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in a season He added two free throws to leave Houston up 119 - 116 with 14 seconds left.

The Nets have a patchwork lineup but are fighting Orlando for seventh place in the East and putting more distance between ninth-place Washington as they try to avoid a play-in for the final post-season spot.

Brooklyn led 94-88 at the start of the fourth, and the Bucks went on a 16-10 run to take their first lead of the second half at 107-104 on a 3-pointer by D.J. Wilson with 5:31 left. Sterling Brown's 3 with 3:56 to play put the Bucks up 110-107.

Chiozza scored on a reverse layup, then Luwawu-Cabarrot hit a 3 with 2:59 left to put the Nets ahead to stay. He added a second with 2:31 to go. Korver hit a long jumper with 1:48 left, but it was ruled two points and not a 3 that would have tied it at 115.

Luwawu-Cabarrot played 31 minutes and was 8 of 12, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range. Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said they’ve been trying to find the right role for the guard.

“Hopefully, we found a sweet spot for him,” Vaughn said. “Seems like he’s in a good rhythm. We’ll continue to put him in positions where he can take advantage of his speed and shooting ability.”

Booker's buzzer-beater keeps Suns unbeaten in the bubble

  Booker's buzzer-beater keeps Suns unbeaten in the bubble LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Devin Booker made a turnaround jumper over Paul George as time expired, capping a 35-point performance and giving the Phoenix Suns a 117-115 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday. The Suns improved to 3-0 in the bubble as they chase a playoff spot. Kawhi Leonard had tied the game with two free throws with 31.3 seconds to go. Ricky Rubio missed a shot after that and Ivica Zubac got the rebound, but he threw a bad pass that Mikal Bridges stole to give the Suns another chance. Booker dribbled left before being cut off by Leonard.

The Bucks really should have attacked him on switches and got Giannis and Lopez on him. People with the "nobody can beat the Bucks without a center" when Houston was down two possessions with a couple minutes left in the game looking like total clowns now.

[–]King Giannis 2OP4me 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (2 children). We didn’t have to lose. I watched the game and the Bucks did not treat it like a tune-up game. If we had even half as many turnovers, that game was ours. Besides, they're not making it out of the 2 nd round anyway. Fuck the Rockets.

Milwaukee appeared ready to clinch from the opening tip as the Bucks scored eight of the first 10 points and hit 7 of 14 beyond the arc. The Nets led 40-34 at the end of the first quarter and 73-65 at halftime.


Nets: With a playoff spot all but wrapped up, they rested C Jarrett Allen, G/F Joe Harris and G Caris LeVert, who scored 34 points in a win over Washington on Sunday. That allowed Jamal Crawford, 40, to make his debut and become the oldest active player in the NBA after being signed as a replacement player. Crawford checked in with 4:35 left in the first quarter. He left early in the second with an injured left hamstring and didn't return. This was his first NBA game since April 2019.

“We’ll get him diagnosed and see what happens from there," Vaughn said. "I’m telling you, I love having him around. It was awesome to see him on the floor tonight, and I look forward to him being on the floor again.”

Bucks: G Wesley Matthews sat out with a sore right calf with starting centre Brook Lopez also out. But G Pat Connaughton joined Bledsoe in making their debuts inside the bubble. Both played 18 minutes and scored eight points each.


Antetokounmpo had his baby son on hand at the NBA bubble for this game. Liam made an appearance on the screen behind the Bucks' bench as a virtual fan. That might have been why the reigning NBA MVP got mad at Nets centre Donta Hall when he was pushed to the floor early in the second quarter with both players given a foul.
