The New York Knicks will face off against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night as the New York team looks to bounce back from their defeat against local neighbors the Brooklyn Nets earlier in the week. The game is scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Tonight the Knicks are looking for their third straight win against the Bucks. However, it will be a difficult challenge and on the road they have lost four from their last five traveling to Milwaukee.
New York's on the road form has started to collapse and they have currently lost three straight games on their travels. However, the Bucks are oppositely looking to win back to back games after dropping three straight games prior to their last match, which they won.
In the Bucks' last game they managed to come back from a massive 27 point deficit against the Chicago Bulls, claiming a tight 93-92 game. The game seemed to pivot around the Bucks' reserves who amazingly outscored the Bulls' bench by a massive 56-10 scoreline. Ersan Ilyasova scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, and 18 overall in the game. His points led the way for the Bucks who themselves as a team outscored the Bulls 30-12 in the final quarter.
The Bucks are ranked first in the league in field goal percentage, with 48.0 percent, and also rank second in scoring (42.1 points per game) off the bench.
Meanwhile the Knicks ranks ninth in the league in points allowed at 95.5 a game. Carmelo Anthony is now second in the league at 26.3 points per game. In his last game he recorded 35 points and 13 rebounds against the Brooklyn Nets, but was unable to stop his team losing.
Anthony is averaging 33.7 points over his last three games, having made 14 three-pointers and shooting 52.2 percent overall, and the Bucks will have to stop him if they are to beat the Knicks tonight.
The Knicks are ranked first in the NBA for three-pointers, making 11.7 a game. The New York team also ranks third in scoring at 102.3 points per game.
