0 Comment

The Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks attempted 116 3-pointers on Sunday afternoon in an overtime win for the Hawks. If this sounds like a record, it is, as this is the most 3-pointers ever attempted in an NBA game. This isn't an April Fools' joke, but just further confirmation of the space race underway in the nfl nike jerseys china

Trae Young made two shots in the final six seconds of the game, including a buzzer-beating put-back from the paint to secure the win for Atlanta. This marked the first Hawks buzzer-beater since Jeff Teague against the Cavaliers in Dec., 2013. Young has now hit four game-tying or go-ahead shots in the final five seconds of regulation or overtime this season, breaking a tie with Nikola Jokic and Evan Fournier for most in the NBA.3

Young dished out 16 dimes, but was countered by journeyman Tim Frazier's 15 assists, as the Penn State product amazingly played all 53 minutes for the Bucks. With Giannis Antetokounmpo and multiple other starters sitting this one out, the Bucks' skeleton crew gave the Hawks a fun run on Sunday.

Frazier becoming fantasy relevant for this final chaotic stretch of the season isn't so surprising when you consider the Bucks' magic number for home court throughout the playoffs is just two wins. With some fantasy leagues still undecided amid the fantasy finals for these last games of the season, working the wire and streaming productive plug-in players is key to gaining an edge. So many superstars, stars and starters will rest in the coming days that the proactive manager will be rewarded with star performances from otherwise fringe rotation players such as nike nfl jerseys wholesale

For instance, Antetokounmpo remains questionable for tonight's matchup with the Nets with an ankle injury. If the MVP candidate sits this one out, it's worth noting Bonzie Colson tallied 15 points and collected 16 rebounds in 41 minutes of play against Atlanta on Sunday.
