    Bucks' Donte DiVincenzo: Scores in double figures
    1h ago

    DiVincenzo scored 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and added four rebounds, two assists and one steal over 23 minutes during the Bucks' 113-106 loss Thursday to the Lakers.

    Thursday marked the first time in five games that DiVincenzo scored in double figures after doing so in seven of his first nine games. Though he took the fewest shots of any starter, he finished tied for second behind Khris Middleton in three-pointers made with two. For the season, DiVincenzo is shooting 43.2 percent from beyond the arc.

    Middleton tallied 20 points (6-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists and five rebounds over 36 minutes in the Bucks' 113-106 loss to the Lakers on Thursday.

    Typically the No. 2 option for the Bucks, Middleton finished third on the team, behind Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday, in both points and field goal attempts during Thursday's game. Despite that, Middleton still managed to record his third consecutive 20-point performance and has now added at least four rebounds and four assists in the same game 12 times.

    The seven assists were tied for the team-lead with Khris Middleton and also tied a season high for personally for Holiday. His assist and rebound total have both increased in each of the last three games. More good news for fantasy managers who have Holiday on their roster; he's now hit the 20-point plateau in three of his last four games after failing to do so in his last seven contests.

    1h ago

    Antetokounmpo finished with 25 points (11-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one block in 35 minutes during the Bucks' 113-106 loss Thursday to the Lakers.

    While the points and rebounds are nice, a big negative for Antetokounmpo Thursday was his turnovers as he committed nine of them, a career-high. Turnovers have plagued him all season, committing at least four of them in seven games. On the plus side, Antetokounmpo has recorded three double-doubles in his last four games after going four straight without one.

    Rockets' Kevin Porter: Being traded to Rockets
    2h ago

    The Cavaliers are finalizing a deal Thursday to send Porter to the Rockets for a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The 2019 first-round pick has yet to play this season due to a personal issue and it looks like Houston is taking a chance on his talent for the small price of one second-round pick. If his personal situation clears up, the 20-year-old should have opportunities to prove himself on a Rockets team that is off to a poor 4-9 start. In his rookie season last year, Porter averaged 10.0 points on 44.2 percent shooting, 3.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.1 triples and 0.9 steals across 23.2 minutes per contest.
