Wow, that was tense. Tuesday’s Christmas Day matinee came down to the wire, but Kevin Knox was able to pull it out in the end, hitting two clutch buckets in the final minute to end the game with 21 points. By Christmas Law, any time Kevin Knox breaks 20 points on December 25, the Knicks automatically win!
Oh, you want to know the actual score? Fine...gimme a second.
The Bucks technically won, 109-95. The Knicks actually played Milwaukee tough in the first half, but that dreaded THIRD QUARTER OF DOOM foiled them again. The Bucks put up 36 points in the third, outscoring the Knicks by 14 and essentially putting the game to bed.
Christmas is a time for Luke Kornet, who hit three triples for 9 total points.

Rookie guard Allonzo Trier came back following an extended stay on the injured list with a strained hamstring. Iso-Zo had 8 points and did some Iso-Zo stuff.
There goes that man, @ISO_ZO. #NBAXmas pic.twitter.com/RxGbiGiPo1— NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) December 25, 2018
Noah Vonleh (14 points, 15 rebounds) blocked the crap out of Giannis Antetokounmpo, so that was fun.

Recap to come. Mery Christmas.
