One might imagine the Bucks are set at the point guard position, especially after making a midseason trade for Michael Carter-Williams and Tyler Ennis. There are some NBA officials, though, who contend the Bucks aren’t totally sold on Carter-Williams, just like they weren’t completely sold on Brandon Knight, whom they dealt to Phoenix in the deal in February.

Boston Celtics coach when asked if league had sent a memo on piggybacking at free throw line: “It was in an email from the league. So it basically said that if you do what [JJ] Redick did against the Clippers and then what the Wizards did against us where they jumped on Amir [Johnson’s] back and kind of wrapped around, then it would be a flagrant foul. At least that’s what I think I read. I get a lot of emails. Sometimes I read them. Sometimes I don’t. But I’m glad I read that one. So that was initially actually why we put Smart in the game so whoever went in I could tell, Hey, listen. If you go after the ball you have to do it in a way that is a basketball play. Otherwise it’s a flagrant foul.’ And so we wanted him to go after the ball. And he made a real push to get into the ball. And he and Jae kept it alive.”
