Star of the day

The Rockets’ Williams not only scored 27 points but did much of his work at the line to help Houston prevail, making 10 of 11 foul shots. He also grabbed six rebounds.

Local spotlight

Stephen Zimmerman Jr., who went to UNLV and Bishop Gorman High School, finally saw some quality minutes for the Milwaukee Bucks. He had five points and three rebounds in 14 minutes.


“Once I knock down my outside shot, I feel like the defender has to respect me even more. It opens it up for me to do what I’m really great at, which is getting to the basket. So, hopefully, I can keep knocking it down. If not, I’m going to keep shooting it anyway.”
