Despite acquiring Damian Lillard during the offseason, the Milwaukee Bucks have had a slow start to the campaign. They will look to improve their performance when they face the offensively deficient New York Knicks, who have only once scored over 110 points in their initial 5 contests. These squads, along with Miami, Washington, and Charlotte, belong to East Group B of the NBA In-Season Tournament, which begins on Friday.
The New York Knicks, who have dropped 3 of their last 5 contests overall, are still struggling to get underway. They will be eager to win after losing to the Cavaliers 95-89 on Wednesday. With 24 points, Jalen Brunson topped the team, followed by Immanuel Quickley with 18, and Donte DiVincenzo with 16. The Knicks battled hard to establish a slim lead into the break, but they fired only 34% from the floor and a pitiful 5 of thirty from three points as a collective unit. They then let the Cavaliers pull away in a close game by scoring just 13 points in the third quarter.
The Milwaukee Bucks, on the other hand, have split their opening 4 matches and will be looking to improve after suffering a 130-111 road defeat on Wednesday at the hands of the Raptors. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 16 points, Damian Lillard contributed 15 points and 6 assists, whereas Malik Beasley topped the club with 20 points on 7 of ten shooting. After being outscored 66-44 in the initial half, the Bucks had a poor start and were constantly up against the wall. As a whole, they hit 46% of their shots from the floor and 13 of 34 behind the 3-point line. With only 6 points on just one of 8 shots, Brook Lopez had a terrible night, and the Bucks were unable to extract much out of their reserves.
