It’s the first meeting between the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks this season as the clubs tip off at Fiserv Forum. The Knicks arrive following an 89-95 loss to the Cavs while the Bucks last match featured a 111-130 rout by the Raptors.
This match marks the kick-off of in-season tournament play for the inaugural event
Last season the Bucks swept the three-game season series and hasn’t lost to New York in their last six meetings. Milwaukee holds the all-time record between the clubs with 122 victories in 227 matches.
New York Knicks
Through five games the Knicks have been up and down with Julius Randle specifically struggling to find a rhythm. Randle is shooting 27.6% from the field on 15.2 attempts and 25.8% from deep on 6.2 attempts.
His worst performance came in the loss to Cleveland on Wednesday when he scored a meager six points shooting 20% from the field and missing all six 3-point attempts.
For the Knicks to make a mark this season, Tom Thibodeau will need Randle to find his range, sooner than later.
New York is tied for 27th offensively (103.8) and has the 2nd-best defensive rating (102.4) with a net differential of plus +1.4 which ranks 12th overall.
The Knicks are 2-2-1 against the spread through five games.
Knicks Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- RJ Barrett, SF (questionable – – knee)
With a new head coach implementing different systems and schemes, there was bound to be an adjustment period in Milwaukee. However, things got much more complicated with the Dame Lillard trade.
Lillard ups the ante on the offensive end and meshing his style with Giannis Antetokounmpo will take some time. Yet, part and parcel of the trade was the exit of Jrue Holiday and his absence has been felt.
Teams are targeting Lillard on defense and if Wednesday’s loss to the Raptors (which was worse than the final score) was any indication that’s something savvy opponents will emulate.
Milwaukee’s key categories find them tied for 11th offensively (112.4), and 29th defensively (119.0) with a net differential of minus -6.6 which ranks 24th overall.
The Bucks are 1-3 against the spread through four games.

Free New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Typically I’d say the Bucks will rebound from such a poor outing, but the Raptors game raised copious red flags. Milwaukee wasn’t just playing without energy, they seemed confused on both sides of the floor with the defense being the greatest concern.
Malik Beasley was tapped to be the stopper and it’s a role he’s ill-fitted to be in.
The Bucks got thrashed on the boards by the lengthy Raptors and the Knicks pose an even greater concern in that area where they rank second in both total and offensive rebounding.
Absences could also factor in if Lillard and Barrett aren’t available for their respective teams and for that reason, I’ll take the points.
