Dear MCW: If you have Giannis and Zaza on a fast break, you pass it to Giannis.

Kidd said some players minutes will be reduced now that Bucks have clinched 6th spot. Dudley will not make trip to Philly to rest back.
Giannis said teammates made fun of him for his stank face in New York after his big dunk. So he said he tried a prettier mean mug Sunday.
"Especially being young, you can fall into the trap of just promoting one guy or two guys." Kidd said. "But it's a team."
Jason Kidd on clinching a playoff spot: "Hopefully that's what becomes the norm here."
This game would have gone to overtime if the Bucks had not scored in the fourth quarter. Alas, the Bucks scored 23 points.
