In Detroit's thrilling 133-132 overtime win against Philadelphia, Embiid put in some serious work on the court, finishing with 33 points and 11 rebounds to Drummond's 14 and 16, respectively.

Griffin is the first player this season to have a 50 point game.

Then, down the stretch of regulation, the teams traded the lead six times, with three ties.

"You have to pick your poison and figure out what you can live with", 76ers coach Brett Brown said. The Sixers will be wise to try to milk more from power forward Dario Saric, who nearly seems like a forgotten star in the mix with Simmons and Embiid. With 6:46 minutes left, Antetokounmpo scored a two-pointer with the foul and the hosts expanded their lead to 105-90 and never looked back. An absence of defense in Milwaukee which included a second-quarter where Brett Brown's unit allowed almost 50 points, a treacherous cascade of bricks heaved from beyond the arc and a lack of rookie Markelle Fultz's presence amid crunch time in Detroit with Simmons sidelined by a back injury. He made the ensuing free throw. Overall, Embiid has a 3-1 lifetime record against Drummond.

"He didn't feel as comfortable as we would've wanted", Brown said.

New Suspicious Package Sent to CNN
As a result of Wednesday's package, all mail destined for CNN's USA offices is now being screened first at off-site facilities. It's unclear whether Sayoc is suspected to be responsible for the most recent suspicious package sent to CNN.

The Bucks overcame early ice-cold shooting before gradually taking control.

Reggie Jackson supplied 23 points, Ish Smith tossed in 21 off the bench and Reggie Bullock added 17 for Detroit.

Griffin's output was the highest for a Pistons player since Richard Hamilton scored 51 points on December 27, 2006 triple-overtime loss to the New York Knicks.

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid wants to master every aspect of basketball, and on Tuesday he demonstrated once again that his game goes beyond being a dominant defensive presence and reliable scorer.

While Philly is arguably the better team on paper, this is a game that Middleton and Antetokounmpo may seek to make a statement in, as many continually overlook this enigmatic Bucks team. The Pistons play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.
