Steve Aschburner: Giannis Antetokounmpo is now the best player in the East — and if he develops a reliable perimeter shot, he soon could restore some balance as the best player in the NBA. With Mike Budenholzer taking over for drama king Jason Kidd (and interim man Joe Prunty) as the Milwaukee Bucks’ coach, hopefully we’ll see the Greek Freak’s talents blossom in all their glory and be put to proper team use. The best team figures to be the Boston Celtics, presumably with Kyrie Irving back at point guard, Gordon Hayward feeling like a brand-new free agent signee all over again and coach Brad Stevens and basketball boss Danny Ainge sorting out the rotation and depth chart. Now, if Philadelphia manages to acquire Kawhi Leonard without stripping away too many helpful role players, the Sixers might push up hard from their No. 2 status as best team even as Joel Embiid challenges Giannis for best player.

Rookie Grayson Allen accumulated 11 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Since June 5, the 21-year-old Devers has raised his OPS from .675 to .741.

We take it for granted because he’s talented and did what he did last year, but he’s still a kid, Cora said, adding that Devers has been working hard with Boston’s staff to shore up the holes left in his game from racing through the minor leagues. He’s staying with the program.

Sandy Leon brought in Devers with a two-run homer into the second deck in right field. J.D. Martinez had three hits and Oscar Lindberg Jersey three RBI, and Mookie Betts added two hits and two walks as Boston piled up 17 hits.
