New York Knicks
The Knicks were getting blown out early at home against the Celtics on Saturday night but came back to make it a respectable two-point loss and cover.
Boston sat Gordon Hayward, which doesn’t make that much of a difference. The Celtics are absolutely loaded. The Knicks lost Kevin Knox, who turned his ankle pretty badly in the first quarter, just four minutes into his night.
Tim Hardaway Jr. got cooking in the second half, hitting some big threes and finishing with twenty-four points to lead the team.
The Knicks don’t have very much talent. Dare I say, they may even have less talent than what’s become usual in New York. This team is playing hard in the early going, though, which makes it a tough team to fade.
Give it some time, though. I have a feeling this team is going to hit rock-bottom awfully fast and finish right up near the top of the lottery standings.
Milwaukee got the weekend off after defeating Indiana by seventeen points at home in the first matchup of the Central division co-favorites.
Kris Middleton has picked up right where he left off last year, when he was absolutely fantastic in the postseason against Boston. He was better than Giannis in Milwaukee’s seven-game loss.
Middleton came out of nowhere for just casual NBA and college basketball fans. He was a three-year player at Texas A&M, where he was solid but didn’t really get to show off all his scoring ability within a faster-paced and more free-flowing offense.
But after leaving Detroit, the team that drafted him, after just one season, he’s shot about forty percent from three-point land for the Bucks in five full seasons (well, he missed over fifty games due to one season-ending injury two seasons ago).

Free New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction: the Bucks win but the Knicks play hard.
I expect Milwaukee to continue playing really well in the early going, especially against a team it can dominate with talent.
But the Knicks are going to play hard with their young and hungry group. If it were in New York, I’d consider the Knicks more seriously. I’d take the them around +12.
