Milwaukee Bucks 's Latest Performance :
The Bucks are coming off a win against the Bulls as they are now three games behind the Raptors for the top spot in the East. Leading the way for the Bucks was Antetokounmpo he scored 36 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and one block. Giannis shot 14-of-21 from the field and 8-of-12 from the line, just another entry in his ongoing MVP candidacy. In the past five games, he’s averaging 31.6 points, 13.6 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.8 steal, and 1.0 blocks, while shooting 64.8% from the field. He will look forward to playing in MSG as I expect another huge scoring performance. Malcolm Brogdon drained 6-of-6 triples on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 24 points. The Bucks are getting most of their shot this season behind the three-point line as they are striving under their new coach Mike Budenholzer. Bledsoe will look to bounce back at MSG after attempting only three shots in the last game.
New York Knicks 's Latest Performance :
The Knicks will kick off their two games homestand against the Bucks and will be looking to bounce back after being blown out by the Sixers. Hardaway will look to have a better shooting night at home after going 1-for-11 against the Sixers without him being efficient it is hard for the Knicks to win games. Allonzo Trier nearly triple-doubled as he had 24 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and one triple in 31 minutes. He shot an efficient 7-of-11 from the field and 9-of-12 from the line, setting career-highs in boards, assists and free throws. The undrafted rookie has now posted two big lines in his last three games, averaging 19.7 points, 7.3 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.3 triples in that span. He has earned his minutes in the Knicks rotation. Vonleh faces a tough matchup as he will have to guard Giannis the majority of the time in this game. The Knicks no longer view Frank Ntilikina as the point guard of their future, as a result, the Magic have drawn interest in trading for him. Coach Fizdale has found a group of young players that he will use until KP returns from injury.
