Matt Velazquez: With the Mavs coming up next, I asked Giannis about Luka Doncic’s start in the NBA: “It’s amazing. He’s so smart, he can find the open guy at any time, he can create for himself. He’s playing amazing. I know he’s going to keep getting better and the sky’s the limit for him.”
Marc J. Spears: The Bucks say they will retire the No. 8 jersey of Marques Johnson in a halftime ceremony March 24 against Cleveland. Johnson, who played in 524 career games with Milwaukee over seven seasons from 1977-84, will become the ninth player in Bucks history to have his number retired.
