On Sunday, the Greek Freak gave the Milwaukee Bucks a one-point lead with 24 seconds left, but the Houston Rockets scored the last five points of the game on free throws as the Rockets beat the Bucks 120-116. On Tuesday, the Bucks were upset by the Brooklyn Nets119-116 as Milwaukee rested Anteokounmpo and Middleton. Then on Thursday night, despite playing without Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic, the Heat led the Bucks by 23 in the first half before Milwaukee rallied to win and cover against Miami 130-116. 

Picking all three Bucks games correctly paid off handsomely for amcmayonnaise (43) who picked up her second GridCard win of the year. The short-handed ProGrid Tour showed well with all players placing in the Top 10. Ace (41) and MMc (40) put up TallBoys but came up empty when the Celtics scored 149 against the Nets and secured the PGT win for MW (42).

Winky (40) also posted a TB on his way to winning the week and earning the King Kong (71). Seven other players posted Qualifying Scores: Teunesto (39), KMac (39), KaitMac (38), csmorgan71 (35), EricCinTX (32), Zeke (31), and kjh98 (31).
