Milwaukee Bucks Fantasy Spin

Giannis Antetokounmpo played just 25 minutes and hit just 4-of-9 shots and 4-of-8 free throws, but still finished Tuesday's 124-86 blowout with 12 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and three steals for his fourth triple-double of the season in a really ugly blowout. All five Bucks starters managed to hit double figures in scoring, but they all had between 11 and 17 points in one of the worst blowouts you'll see. And despite the crazy score, none of the bench players really went crazy in garbage time, either. Giannis was a little gimpy coming into this one with a hip/quad issue, but was clearly good to go tonight. The Bucks will head into a back-to-back situation at Memphis on Wednesday night well rested after tonight's blowout.

Memphis Grizzlies Fantasy Spin

Making the first start of his NBA career, Jevon Carter played 15 minutes and tallied eight points (2-of-6 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), two assists, one rebound, one steal and two 3-pointers Monday vs. the Rockets. Carter, who made his NBA debut against the Rockets in mid-December, was the first Memphis player to take on the responsibility of guarding reigning MVP James Harden. It didn’t go too well, as Harden got rolling early and finished the night with 57 points. The rookie out of West Virginia did manage to score eight points in his 15 minutes on the floor, three off of his career high (which was established in his NBA debut). Who replaces the injured Kyle Anderson (ankle) in the starting lineup moving forward has yet to be determined, with matchups likely deciding who gets the call. But even if it’s Carter, he isn’t the best fantasy option due to the lack of offensive production.
