This Wednesday will see an Eastern Conference showdown between two team hoping to make a late push for the playoffs. The New York Knicks will head out to Wisconsin to take on the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Knicks snapped a two-game skid on Monday, defeating the Magic in Orlando 113-105. This will be the second game of a four-game road trip, and the Knicks have the opportunity to build on some momentum gained in Orlando. They are currently in 12th place in the East.
The Bucks have been hot lately.
They dominated the 76ers in Philly on Monday, winning 112-98 and gaining their third straight victory. This begins a three-game home stand for the Bucks who are currently in 10th place in the Eastern Conference.
New York Knicks
Courtney Lee led the way for New York as they mounted a 4th quarter comeback in Orlando on Monday.
The Knicks also received strong performances from several young players in the victory, namely Chasson Randle, Justin Holliday and Willy Hernangomez.
The young players will likely see more work late in the season, and this shows some positive signs for them.
The Knicks needed the victory over the Magic to regain some sort of momentum late in the year. They had previously lost two straight to the Golden State Warriors and the Philadelphia 76ers.
In their last five games, the Knicks have only won two– both against Orlando.
The Knicks currently rank 13th in the league in scoring with 105.8 points per game.
They rank 4th in rebounding with 45.9 and 20th in assists with 21.6 per contest. Defense continues to be their Achilles heel– they rank 25th in the league in scoring D, allowing 108.7 points per game.
Carmelo Anthony leads the way for New York with 23.2 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. Kristaps Porzingis adds 18.2 points and 7.2 rebounds, while Derrick Rose contributes 17.7 points and 4.5 assists a night.
Giannis Antetokoumpo and Tony Snell were both impressive in Monday’s win over the 76ers. Antetokoumpo led the team in scoring with 26 points, and Snell scored a season high 21.
The Bucks were absolutely dominant in the victory and never trailed.
The win in Philly was the third straight for the Bucks. They continue to make a late push for the playoffs and are now only 1.5 games out of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee is right in the middle of the pack offensively, ranking 15th in scoring with 105.2 points per game. They rank 29th in rebounding with only 40.8 but 5th in assists with 24.7 per contest.
They have been average on the defensive side, allowing 105 points per game which ranks 12th in the league.
There is really only one name on the stat line for the Bucks; Giannis Antetokoumpo leads the team in scoring (23.2), rebounding (8.6), assists (5.5), steals (1.7) and blocks (2.0).
Jabari Parker has also contributed well with 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.
