Game of the Night

Despite missing Khris Middleton, the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Bucks put up a strong fight against the in-form Washington Wizards.

In a game with 18 lead changes and seven ties, the Wizards were led by a 30-piece from Bradley Beal.

The Bucks, who will be visiting the White House the next day, were led the reigning Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo - 29 points, 18 rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Highlight of the Night

An underrated play from the games that didn't get as much air time.

Beal, not one you would associate with the best handles in the league, dropped Jrue Holiday, one of the best on-ball defensive guards in the league, with a behind-the-back dribble. He then avoided Giannis Antetokounmpo - one of the best help defenders in the league - only to be denied by Bobby Portis.

Great basketball all-round.

Performance of the Night

With eight games to choose from, it was difficult to pick just one. So, I've got two performances of the night.

First off, Cole Anthony, the 21-year-old second-year guard came up clutch for the Orlando Magic. Finishing with a game-high 33 points, 10 of which he scored in the fourth quarter including six in the final two minutes of the game, he helped Orlando stun the Utah Jazz, the team with the best record in the league.

Staying on the East Coast, we got to give Ricky Rubio his spotlight. The Spanish veteran guard erupted for 37 points on a ridiculous 8-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc while also dishing out 10 assists in the team's 126-109 victory at Madison Square Garden.
