I. Zubac - C
Ivica Zubac hit all 10 of his shots to finish with 21 points, 15 rebounds and a block in 24 minutes of Thursday's win over the Mavericks.
After a couple lackluster games to kick off bubble play, Zubac has come to life over his last two, averaging 19.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks on 17-of-19 shooting. Montrezl Harrell should eventually make his way into the bubble and will rain on the Zubac parade, but he's looked great in his last two outings. Kawhi Leonard led the way with 29 points and Paul George had 24 points, seven boards, six assists and two 3-pointers in the win.

K. Leonard - SF
Kawhi Leonard hit 10-of-23 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to 29 points, six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 38 minutes of Thursday's win over the Mavericks.
The stat line isn't mind-blowing but if you watched the game, Kawhi's dominance over the Mavericks, especially late in the game, was ridiculous. This could be a preview of a first-round playoff matchup between the Clips and Mavs, and the Mavericks have a lot of work to do on both ends of the floor if they're going to find a way to beat Kawhi, Paul George and the suddenly rocking Ivica Zubac.

K. Porzingis - PF
Kristaps Porzingis led the Mavericks with 30 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a block and three 3-pointers on 9-of-19 shooting in 38 minutes of Thursday's 126-111 loss to the Clippers.
The Mavs clawed their way back into the game and tied it in the fourth quarter, but the Clippers went on a 25-10 run to put Dallas out of its misery. Luka Doncic hit 10-of-21 shots and six 3-pointers to finish with 29 points, three rebounds and six assists in the loss.

T. Jones - PG
Tyus Jones (right knee) will remain on the sidelines for Friday's game against the Thunder.
Jones was supposed to be re-evaluated this week, but we never got an update, and the fact that he's still getting ruled out 24 hours in advance of tip-off tells us he's still not close. With Memphis quickly losing ground as the No. 8 seed, we might not see Jones at all for these seeding games.

B. Lopez - C
Brook Lopez put up 17 points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals, two blocks and one turnover across 32 minutes on Thursday.
Lopez was hit with a random rest day on Tuesday, but he was back in the starting unit today and played his usual minutes. Robin Lopez got a spot-start on Tuesday, but he wound up collecting a DNP-CD in his return to the bench today.

W. Matthews - SG
Wesley Matthews (calf) returned from a one-game absence on Thursday and finished with nine points, two triples and one rebound across 23 minutes.
Matthews skipped Tuesday's game with a sore calf, but he was back out there tonight and was moving around fine. George Hill returned to the second unit with Matthews back in action and finished with nine points, two rebounds, six assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

K. Middleton - SF
Khris Middleton dropped in 33 points on 9-of-14 shooting (10-of-10 FT) Thursday, to go with five treys, six boards, eight dimes and three turnovers across 34 minutes in an impressive comeback win over the Heat.
The Bucks played some sloppy defense in this game, allowing Miami to drop in 21 triples, which set an unfortunate record for the Milwaukee franchise in that they are now the first team in NBA history to give up at least 20 triples in three consecutive games. However, they were able to cobble things together late, and went on a massive run to overcome a 23-point deficit. The Bucks have now locked up the No. 1 seed out East, so it wouldn't be surprising to see some of their stars get hit with random rest days over the final four seeding games.
