Bucks snap 6-game skid, beat Knicks 101-98
Question of the Day
The third-year pro went shot for shot with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony down the stretch before nailing the most important one of the night.
“That’s his shot. He loves that little step-back, half-dribble 3,” said forward Khris Middleton, who had 19 points.
He played out the seconds ahead in his head. Don’t get caught in a “bad situation” off a screen or trap, an outcome that Knight said had played out too many times before.
“So I just walked it down, got into rhythm and was able to knock down that shot,” Knight said.
“When I went back and looked at it, Ray kind of backed off a little bit. I thought he could have been a little more aggressive,” coach Mike Woodson said. “Ray’s hand was up there.”
The Knicks had one last chance, though Anthony misfired on a deep 3 before stumbling back into the first row of seats as time expired. He finished with 36 points.
Save for a sprinkling of onlookers wearing Knicks blue, the 11,000-plus fans at the Bradley Center rewarded the Bucks with a rousing ovation.
Wins - let alone this kind of dramatic victory - have been rare in this 9-39 season.
But Monday was especially important for Milwaukee because they fended off numerous runs by the streaky Knicks, who lost a second straight following a four-game winning streak.
This is the same team that’s also had streaks of five wins and nine losses, too. New York hopes this isn’t the start of another bad run.
New York rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but ended up falling to the worst team in the league two nights after losing to the Southeast Division-leading Miami Heat.
