First Star

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) 22.4

Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee's game-changing 21-year-old point forward, led the Bucks with a game-high 24 points on nine-of-15 shooting. He made six-of-10 free throws in 37:30, with seven rebounds, six assists and two steals, closing the night with a plus-5 rating.

Second Star

Hassan Whiteside (MIA) 21.5

Whiteside, making his 34th Five Star appearance, played 29:28 off the bench in relief of fellow center Amar'e Stoudemire. He made nine-of-13 from the field and all five of his free throws, with a game-high 13 rebounds (five offensive). Whiteside also blocked three shots and posted a plus-1 rating with his team-high 23 points.

Third Star

Luol Deng (MIA) 19.3

Deng, in his 19th Five Star appearance, led the Heat with 38:12 on the court. He made nine-of-17 shots, including two-of-four from outside for 20 points. His 11 rebounds (including three offensive) gave him his eighth double-double of the season, and seventh in his last 11 games. Deng also had two assists, two steals, and a blocked shot, with a minus-12 plus-minus rating.

Fourth Star

Khris Middleton (MIL) 18.9

Middleton, starting at guard for the Bucks in his fourth season out of Texas A&M University, played 39:49, ranking behind teammate Jerryd Bayless by 10 seconds for the game-high. He scored 22 points on eight-of-15 shooting, making one-of-three from deep and all five of his tries from the foul stripe. He had a game-high eight assists, with seven rebounds and a steal, finishing with a game-best plus-13 rating.

We just wanted to stay with it, execute down the stretch. We haven't been doing that lately. We finally got back to doing it, and it worked out for us. - Middleton

Fifth Star

Jabari Parker (MIL) 18.8

Parker, manning the small forward position for the Bucks and in his second season out of Duke, scored 23 points in 37:42. He made seven-of-13 shots, making his only three-pointer and eight-of-11 from the foul line. Parker added three rebounds and two steals, finishing at minus-7 on the night.

The Rest

Josh Richardson (MIA) 16.3

Richardson came up just short of his first Five Stars appearance with 14 points in 24:22, sinking four-of-six overall and three-of-four from both three-point and from one-point distance. He also had two rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a blocked shot, with a plus-4 rating.

Miles Plumlee (MIL) 12.6

Plumlee made eight-of-12 from the floor for the Bucks in 24:26 off the bench, scoring 18 points with four rebounds, an assist and a steal.

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 11.1

I felt we didn't play our best game. We took a lead and had control of the game. Then, it just went another way after that. - Wade
