A Milwaukee win on Wednesday at Philadelphia or a Miami loss to Toronto would allow the Bucks to retain their first this season. If both teams (or with Washington) are tied, a random drawing will take place after the season. The pick is protected 1-10 and 17-30 and would convey to Phoenix if it falls between 11-16. The Bucks currently have the 17th pick in the Draft with a win tonight vs. Orlando and a Miami loss to Oklahoma City. If not conveyed, Phoenix will have Milwaukee's first in 2019, protected 1-3 and 17-30.

Klay Thompson finished with a game-high 34 points against the Suns, including scoring 22 in the first quarter alone, when he hit nine of 11 shots and four of six from beyond the arc. "That was fun to watch," said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. "He had the arena pretty excited. Every time he went up for a shot after that first few, you could hear the anticipation of the crowd. Yeah, he had it rolling." Said Thompson, "It was good to get in a good rhythm, especially with one game left now [in the regular season], and to have some great momentum going into this playoff stretch." That's Thompson's first 30-point performance since Jan. 17, when he scored 38 in Chicago. "I'm shooting a career high in three-point and field-goal percentage, so for me that's more valuable than a few big games," he said.


Thompson, Warriors beat Suns for 15th straight time

Klay Thompson is on FIRE right now with 22 points in nine minutes of action here in the first quarter in Phoenix. The Warriors forward has made nine of 11 from the field, including four of six from 3-point range. The rest of his teammates have just seven points combined -- and Thompson's scoring total thus far equals the Suns, who as a team have scored 22 points total with 2:22 left to go in the first quarter. Already, Thompson has his most points in any quarter this season and, according to ESPN Stats & Information, this marks the 11th time someone has scored 20 or more points in the first quarter this season.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said the team will probably rest swingman Andre Iguodala on Sunday in Phoenix, where the Warriors will be closing out the second of a back-to-back set.
