Recap

Bam Adebayo had one of the best games of his young NBA career, posting 18 points and 10 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season. Adebayo had a couple of impressive dunks, one of which is making it rounds on the Twitter and can be found just a few scrolls down.

De’Aaron Fox finished with five points in 17 minutes before leaving the game in the third quarter. Fox sprained his left ankle during the Sacramento Kings’ 21-point comeback win against the Chicago Bulls and initial X-rays came back negative. The Kings do not play again until Friday and Fox will undergo more tests until then to discover the exact severity of his injury.

Rajon Rondo scored a season-high 18 points while shooting a surprising 4-6 from three in a loss for the New Orleans Pelicans. Anthony Davis added in 15 points while DeAndre Liggins scored four points in his first game back in New Orleans after signing a two-year contract on Monday. The Pelicans have now dropped four of their last five games since the injury to DeMarcus Cousins.

Tonight in the NBA

7:00: Cavaliers @ Magic

7:30: Celtics @ Raptors

7:30: Grizzlies (An. Harrison) @ Hawks

7:30: Rockets @ Nets

7:30: Bucks (Bledsoe) @ Knicks (Kanter)

8:00 (TNT): Wizards (Meeks) @ Sixers

10:30 (TNT): Thunder (Patterson, Johnson) @ Warriors

10:30: Suns (Booker, Ulis) @ Lakers (Randle)

Player to watch

Tonight’s player to watch is Eric Bledsoe. Bledsoe is coming off a 28 point, four rebound, six assist performance against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday and he’ll look to put up similar numbers as he takes a short trip to play the New York Knicks. The Knicks play three different point guards who will all give Bledsoe different looks, but it’s nothing he can’t deal with as the superior point guard among both teams. The Bucks will hope to avenge their previous loss to the Knicks on Feb. 2, where Bledsoe scored only seven points despite earning the win.
