Game of the Night

Without Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, Seth Curry and Ben Simmons, the 76ers had no business being in this game down the stretch against the Bucks, but Tyrese Maxey (31 points) and Andre Drummond (17 points, 20 rebounds) had other ideas and had it down to a three-point game (110-107) with 2:10 remaining.

Before the 76ers could think about pulling off the upset, Giannis Anteokounmpo delivered a string of big plays on both sides of the floor, knocking down free throws, blocking Maxey's layup and finding Grayson Allen for a 3-pointer, before finishing off an alley-oop to seal the W.

The Greek Freak poured in 31 points and 16 rebounds, while Allen added 25 points, knocking down five 3-pointers in the win.

Highlight of the Night

Someone tell Ivica Zubac that Anfernee Simons won the 2021 Slam Dunk Contest.

Performance of the Night

Paul George continues to do everything for the LA Clippers, pushing them to their fifth-straight win, tied with the Golden State Warriors for the league's longest winning streak.

George poured in 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists on 10-of-24 from the field and 3-of-7 from deep.
