Asked Malone a/b Jarred Vanderbilt, who’s found a home: “No, I’m really not overly surprised (at his growth).. It’s easy to have revisionist history. ‘Oh, Jarred Vanderbilt should’ve been playing.’ Alright, well, we’ve got more wins in the West the last 3 years than anybody.” – 6:44 PM

Nikola Jokic was awarded another rebound from Sunday’s win in Milwaukee, which gave him 18 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists for the game. It’s his 13th triple-doubles on the season. He had seven in January alone. – 3:58 PM
Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
The 36 point home loss against the Nuggets was a slap in the face like for the Bucks. The reigning champs know pretty well how to react after nights like these and Donte DiVincenzo sets the tone ahead of the game vs Wizards.
