Williams was a no-show versus the Grizziles. He shot 0-6 from the field, including 0-3 from three-point land. His usual point output would have helped the Hornets continue their winning ways.
Nov 19, 2016; Milwaukee, WI, USA; Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia (27) hugs forward Kevin Durant (35) after the Warriors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 124-121 at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Durant scored 33 points to lead the Warriors. Mandatory Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

With Paul George and Myles Turner out, Teague was quite over-matched by the Warriors. He attempted to carry the team, but sprained his ankle in process. His availability for his Atlanta return could now be in jeopardy.

With Matthew Delladoova in foul trouble, the vet Terry came in and gave Coach Jason Kidd and the Bucks a well-needed boost.
Best Performance of the Night by a former Hawk
Horford played extremely well against his Dominican Republic National Team teammate Karl-Antohny Towns. He scored 20 points, and showed Celtics fans what they expected. He scored from the outside, and passed the ball well. He grabbed six rebounds, which won’t surprise any Hawk fans. Hopefully, Celtics fans will get both the positives and negatives with Horford as the season goes on.
