Bucks 112, Celtics 111: The hero last week in Cleveland, Avery Bradley with a terrible foul in the final second as Milwaukee escaped with a win. Celtics had rallied all the way back from 19 down to start the fourth quarter and Kelly Olynyk's clutch free throws with 1 second to go had tied the game. Bradley tried to help defend Milwaukee's final shot and fouled Khris Middleton.

Knicks have fallen behind by four with 5:46 to play and Kristaps Porzingis, who had 14 points in the 3rd quarter, is set to check in. It will be interesting to see how often Porzingis is involved down the stretch. There were games under Derek Fisher when he didn't get many touches late in the fourth quarter.

LaMarcus Aldridge's 20-point performance thus far marks the 10th consecutive game he's put up 20 against the Miami Heat. According to Elias Sports Bureau, just two other active players have had double-digit streaks of games where they scored at least 20 against the Heat. Dirk Nowitzki has done it 14 times straight from 2005 to 2012, and Kevin Durant has 11 consecutive games of at least 20 against the Heat from 2009 to 2014.
