NBA: Giannis Antetokounmpo drained a turnaround jumper at the buzzer to give the Bucks a 105-104 victory over the Knicks at New York. Antetokounmpo finished with 27 points and 13 rebounds as Milwaukee dealt the Knicks their sixth straight loss. Greg Monroe added 18 points, Jabari Parker 15 in the win. The Bucks and Knicks meet again Friday night in Milwaukee.

Green Bay’s Quinten Rollins has been placed in the concussion protocol following his scary injury in the win last week over Detroit, while fellow Packers cornerback Damarious Randall was limited in practice Wednesday. The injury update from coach Mike McCarthy provided a bit of good news for the team’s battered secondary ahead of the NFC playoff game on Sunday against the New York Giants and their talented receiving corps. Rollins was carted off with a neck injury in the second half against the Lions after tumbling out of bounds on the sideline. Randall, who was already bothered by a shoulder injury, hurt his knee in the game. The Packers have brought up cornerback Herb Waters from the practice squad.

The Detroit Lions have confirmed that head coach Jim Caldwell will be back for the 2017 season. The Lions were on the verge of winning the NFC North until they lost their last three games, giving the division title to Green Bay and relegating Detroit to an NFC wild-card matchup against the Seahawks in Seattle. Caldwell was 26-22 as head coach of the Colts from 2009-11, reaching the Super Bowl in his first year at the helm and losing his job following a 2-14 campaign
