The Bucks ended up running away with this one, covering the -8.5 spread on route to their 13th straight win, 127-103 over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,800) ended up finishing with 35 points and nine rebounds, including four made 3-pointers for 51.25 DKFP. Andre Drummond finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds for the Pistons, scoring 58 DKFP to lead all players in this game. Below is a recap of how it all went down.
These days, it seems like most Bucks’ (-8.5) games end in one-sided beat downs. Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,800) came into today averaging just 20 minutes in his last two games because of lopsided scores. He’s up to 18 points in third quarter, but the Pistons are holding tight.
For Detroit, the most significant aspect of tonight’s game is that Blake Griffin ($6,600) is playing in the tail end of a back-to-back for the first time all season. The Pistons are on the outside of the playoff picture looking in and having Griffin play in as many games as possible is going to be necessary for a playoff push. Andre Drummond ($8,900) has 10 points and seven rebounds as the league’s leading rebounder appears to be on his way to another double-double.
UPDATE: Giannis is at it again. The Bucks are up big after the third quarter and he’s up to 30 points and eight rebounds. Most notably, Giannis has made three 3-pointers tonight, hitting the over of 1.5 on DK Sportsbook. He may not return value on that $11,800 salary, but he’s going to come close with 44.5 DKFP. Drummond is closing in on a double-double with 16 points and nine boards with four dimes. He’s at 40.75 DKFP with a quarter left in this one.
