SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was on a limited-minutes plan due to his sore right knee, had played just 24 minutes. Khris Middleton had exited the game with 80 seconds on the clock in overtime, wincing and limping as he left the court. Their two all-stars were on the bench late in overtime and the Milwaukee Bucks, up one at the time, needed to make a play.  The ball never touched the hands of Eric Bledsoe, the man who starred throughout the night with his fifth career triple-double and put the team on his back to even make overtime a reality.
