The Bucks were able to withstand a triple-double from Charlotte's LaMelo Ball, who finished with 27 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. Milwaukee bounced back against the Hornets after Charlotte had pulled off a surprising 138-109 blowout of the Bucks back on Jan. 6. The Clippers are continuing their six-game Eastern Conference road trip after taking down the Bulls in Chicago on Tuesday night, 108-103.
In the direct aftermath of the Bulls' disappointing loss to the Clippers, DeMar DeRozan emphatically stated that Reggie Jackson fouled him, a no call that the NBA admitted it got wrong in its Last Two Minute Report.
Considering that Tyronn Lue’s team had long been one of the worst teams in the league at looking after the ball and remain a bottom half team by that metric across the full campaign, through the past seven games they are the top-ranked team in the NBA. In this matchup, the Clippers had just eight turnovers, and five of those came from the single source of Paul George – who continues to find the odd teething issue as he establishes ball-handling duties.
