Milwaukee Bucks forward/center Giannis Antetokounmpo had 23 points in his eighth career All-Star appearance on Sunday. The former MVP did the damage with an 11-for-16 effort from the field while collecting seven rebounds and an assist. The Bucks star is shooting a career-high 61.6 percent from the field for the season and showed off his extreme efficiency again in Indianapolis. It's been another great year for Antetokounmpo, but with the Bucks struggling lately, he might even have to squeeze a bit more out of himself over the last couple of months to help the team secure a good seeding for a playoff run.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Damian Lillard protected his three-point contest crown on Saturday's festivities, and followed it up with an MVP performance in the All-Star Game on Sunday. In the 211-186 victory for the East, the veteran point guard finished with 39 points, six assists, three rebounds, and one steal while shooting 14-for-26 from the floor and 11-for-23 from deep. As usual, there wasn't much defense being played in this game, but Lillard broke out of his shooting slump in a big way. Hopefully, this carries over into the final stretch of the season since the Bucks have gone 3-7 since Doc Rivers took over the team.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo put up a big double-double in an effort to avoid losing to a short-handed Memphis Grizzlies team but ultimately fell short. The former MVP finished with 35 points, 12 assists, four rebounds, and one turnover while shooting 15-for-17 from the floor and 5-for-9 from the charity stripe. He was the only one of the starting five that efficiently scored. While Antetokounmpo only missed two shots, the rest of the starting five went 17-for-49. This was also a strange game in terms of the low rebounding numbers for Antetokounmpo compared to his season average of 11.2 per game. He remains one of the top fantasy options in the league though when removing free throw shooting.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Damian Lillard (ankle) is good to go on Thursday night in Memphis. Lillard has been bothered by a left ankle injury over the last few weeks. However, he only missed a few games and has been available for the team's previous three contests. The multi-time All-Star has seen a dip on the scoring end this season. Yet, Lillard remains a top fantasy option in any format, and he could be in for a big night versus a Memphis team with 10 players listed on the injury report.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is available for Thursday's game in Memphis. He was listed as probable, so there wasn't much concern from fantasy managers concerning his status for the Bucks' final game entering the All-Star break. This will be Antetokounmpo's first meeting versus the Grizzlies this season. But with Memphis listing 10 players on the injury report, the 29-year-old could have one of his most dominant performances of the 2023-24 campaign.
