Game of the Night

Plenty of stars sidelined in this game in Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jaylen Brown but the nationally televised game didn't disappoint.

The shorthanded Bucks battled hard, put on a fight and ensured overtime was required to judge a winner. For the Celtics, their offseason acquisition Dennis Schroder came through as he scored 19 of his season-high 38 points after the fourth quarter began.

Highlight of the Night

One windmill dunk in a game will get fans out of their chair. On Friday night, there were a couple in Charlotte and both on back-to-back possession by high-flyers.

Performance of the Night

The best game of the season for James Harden.

39 PTS, 12 ASTS, 5 REBS and he took over in crunch time!
