An interesting graphic attached here because it's not the same old list of superstars—i.e., no Wilt, no MJ, no Harden or Westbrook, etc.
Ben Simmons has never made a 3-point field goal in his NBA career (0-for-14 including the playoffs). But he leads the NBA with 186 assists on 3-pt FGs this season. @Sixers host @Lakers pregame now on ABC
#PaulGeorge (45 points) and #JamesHarden (42 points) are the second pair of players to score 40+ points in the same game this season, joining #BradleyBeal (43) and #KawhiLeonard (41) in a Raptors-Wizards double-overtime matchup on January 13th. @EliasSports

Orlando is trading for Markelle Fultz, league source tells ESPN.
Among players to debut with the team that drafted them, Markelle Fultz's 33 games with the 76ers are the fewest by a No. 1 pick before changing teams in the Common Draft Era - since 1966 (h/t @EliasSports). Pervis Ellison previously held that distinction (34 games with Kings).
The 50 points scored by the @Bucks in the first quarter ties a franchise record for first-quarter scoring (Nov.16, 1989). The only time MIL scored more than 50 in any quarter? Nov.12, 1991 (53) Via @EliasSports
