NBA Full Game Replays
Posted by johnmorson on November 23rd, 2019
For the Suns, who have now lost four of their last five, they were playing without key veteran starters in Ricky Rubio and Aron Baynes. Despite missing those key players, the hosts dished out more assists (28) than their season average (2nd in the league - 27.9) and shot better from beyond the arc (13-of-31 - 41.9%) than their season average - 37.8% - 6th.

The Pelicans, meanwhile, were playing without rotation players Jahlil Okafor, Josh Hart and Derrick Favors. Not to mention, Zion Williamson, the 2019 No. 1 overall pick, who is set to make his return midway through December.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was the star of the show, recording 24 points, 19 rebounds and a career-high 15 assists, for his second triple-double of the season and 16th of his career! Eric Bledsoe led them in scoring with 30 points and six assists, one of six Bucks players to score in double figures.

With the Blazers zoning in on him on defence, the Greek Freek dished out a career-high 15 assists, finding wide-open teammates time and time again on his way to a monster triple-double.
