The Bulls had no answer for Nikola Jokic on Monday night as the All-Star center erupted for 39 points, 14 rebounds nine assists, a steal and two blocks. Jokic did Jokic things to Chicago, hitting 17-of-28 shots and all five of his free throws with just one turnover in 38 minutes. It was a monster line for the guy who ranks first in 9-cat this season, and though this doesn't mean anything for the fantasy game, Jokic also had two dunks after the game he asked reporters, “Is this my first ever poster in my life?” And we think it might be.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished Sunday's home win with 36 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, four blocks and one steal, making 15-of-27 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws in 40 minutes. The Greek Freak scored 17 of the Bucks' final 22 points and threw down an exclamation-point dunk to give Milwaukee a three-point lead that held up in a 105-100 victory. Don't be surprised if his dunk is soon an NBA Top Shot 'moment'. He's looked unstoppable lately and has now scored 35+ points in four straight games, a streak unmatched for the Bucks since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did it in 1973. He hit a pair of 3-pointers in this matinee, too, giving him consecutive games with multiple 3-pointers for the first time since mid-January.
