Sunday, December 27th finds the Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks tipping off a match at Madison Square Gardens.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Bucks winning all three contests. The Bucks own the all-time record having won 115 of 217 matches played.
Through two games it’s been a bit of up and down for Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Bucks with a 1-1 record. Granted the loss to the Celtics could just as easily have been a victory but for a banked 3-pointer by Jayson Tatum.
They managed an easy victory over a Warriors team who are sputtering to start the season. But, the concern through two games might be how teams are electing to guard the back-to-back MVP.
Known for being aggressive in the paint and trying to force his way teams are prepared for Antetokounmpo’s tendencies and subsequently most of his personal fouls are coming on the offensive side of the court.
In the blowout of the Dubs, six Bucks scored in double-figures with Giannis producing a mild 15 point, 13 rebound double-double.
Khris Middleton led the charge with 31 points while Donte Divincenzo (13), Jrue Holiday (12), and D.J. Augustin (13) each registered double-figure scoring.
Bobby Portis dropped a 10 point, 12 rebound double-double in reserve minutes.
New York Knicks
Through two games the Knicks’ final scores might not be indicative of their effort given the two losses. To that point, despite the final blow-out score versus the 76ers the Knicks kept the game close and played tough-nosed defense through three frames.
The challenge for Tom Thibodeau will be motivating a squad whose talent won’t match the opposition on most nights and to play that style of defense through a full 48-minutes.
Four Knicks reached double-figures in the loss to the 76ers with Julius Randle leading the way dropping 25 along with seven rebounds. Alec Burks scored 20 in a reserve role while Mitchell Robinson (11) and RJ Barrett (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Immanuel Quickley (hip pointer) Omari Spellman (knee), and Austin Rivers (Austin Rivers) were out for Saturday’s match versus the 76ers and are questionable versus the Bucks.
Obi Toppin suffered a strained calf that will keep him out of action until early January.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
The Bucks get the advantage on paper as well as in rest since the Knicks played Saturday and pushed their club through the entirety of the 76ers match.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
.That should equate to an easy win but as noted above teams are zeroing in on Antetokounmpo’s offensive tendencies and since Thibs is a defensive savant expect him to have his charges ready to address the MVP.
Still — who are we kidding this game could get out of hand quickly so even with the 12 point spread I like the Bucks.
