12 GAME WEDNESDAY NIGHT: HERE’S WHAT I SAW:

Good luck to all fantasy managers as they jockey into the playoffs *(Basketball gods willing).

(*W) BUCKS -VS- WOLVES: No Greek Freak, nor Big Kat.

  • Kris Middleton:
  • Killa-Kris is capable of crisp kill shots.
  • 27 on 9 for 15 shots is a sharp shooter’s smorgasbord.
