Donte DiVincenzo was the only former Villanova Wildcat star to see the floor in an NBA game on Friday night – here is a look at how he did, who is injured and what is on the docket for the weekend:

The Boston Celtics grabbed a win over the visiting Atlanta Hawks in Boston last night, 129-108.

Former Cat and current Hawks rookie big man, Omari Spellman was out of action again with a hip injury.

For the season, Spellman is averaging 18.2 MPG, 6.3 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 1.0 APG, and 0.6 BPG on 38.6% FG shooting, 31.7% 3PFG shooting and 75% free-throw shooting.


Meanwhile, in Cleveland, the Milwaukee Bucks, led by 44 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo, defeated the Cavaliers, 114-10.

Donte DiVincenzo earned 23 bench minutes for the Bucks and scored 6 points on 3-7 FG, 0-3 3PFG and 0-0 FT. To round out his stat line, DiVincenzo added three rebounds (one offensive), three steals and two blocks. He didn’t commit any turnovers and finished the game with a +8 plus/minus.


Check out all six of Donte’s points in these highlights:

For the season, DiVincenzo is averaging 17.2 MPG, 5.5 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 1.3 APG, and 0.2 BPG while shooting 40.4% from the floor, 25.4% from three-point range (needs to fix that), and 81.8% from the free throw line.


The Toronto Raptors suffered a 128-122 loss at the Portland Trail Blazers. KAwhi Leonard scored 28 points in his return to action for the Raptors

Kyle Lowry sat out the game with a left thigh bruise.

So far this season, Lowry is averaging 34.2 MPG, 14.2 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 10.0 APG and is shooting 43.6% FG, 33% 3PFG and 83.3% FT.
