Lonzo Ball contributed 12 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two triples, three steals and two turnovers across 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pistons. Ball did appear to tweak something in his right hand early in the game, and while he played through it, that was something that was giving him some trouble on Sunday as well, so it's worth monitoring. Eric Bledsoe, who was held to just eight points his last time out, finished Wednesday's win with 11 points (5-of-11 FG, 1-of-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover in 33 minutes. If the hand issue forces Ball to miss a game, Bledsoe and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will benefit.

Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the Wolves on Tuesday in the Bucks' 139-112 win, finishing with 37 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two blocks. In just 29 minutes of action, Giannis made 13-of-18 field goals and 10-of-13 free throws as Milwaukee crushed Minnesota by 27 points. He's now been to the line 37 times in his last two games, connecting on 78% of his attempts while doing most of his damage in the paint. The Greek Freak is headed to his fifth straight All-Star game in a week and a half which is no surprise with how dominant he is.
