NBA DAILY FOR FRIDAY, FEB. 12
Recap of Thursday's NBA games
Bucks go into All-Star break with 99-92 win over Wizards
The AP reports: Khris Middleton's role on the Milwaukee Bucks has evolved from catch-and-shoot perimeter player to crunch-time playmaker.
A matchup problem as a 6-foot-8 forward who plays in the backcourt, Middleton did more damage Thursday night against the Washington Wizards by attacking the bucket and finding open teammates.
Middleton scored 27 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bucks held on for 99-92 win to head into the All-Star break on a high note... Against Washington, Middleton was 1 of 3 from 3-point range, but 9 of 17 overall. Middleton also tied a season high with nine assists... Bradley Beal scored 19 points for the Wizards, and John Wall had 15 points and 10 assists.
Thunder beat Pelicans; teams mourn Ingrid Williams' death
The AP reports: Basketball didn't matter much to Kevin Durant on Thursday night.
Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams' wife, Ingrid, was involved in a car crash Tuesday night in Oklahoma City and died Wednesday. Monty Williams coached the Pelicans last season before coming to Oklahoma City to help new coach Billy Donovan, so as his two most recent teams met, both played with heavy hearts. A moment of silence was observed before the Thunder's 121-95 victory... Durant scored 23 points, Russell Westbrook had 23 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds, and Serge Ibaka added 18 points... Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday each scored 23 points for the Pelicans.
