Bucks 92, Knicks 90: Scenes from the Knicks reminding us they should sell at the trade deadline


NBA: New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

You knew the New York Knicks were going to screw up, and boy did they ever. Friday night’s 92-90 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks featured a cavalcade of fourth-quarter screw-ups: bricked shots, bricked free throws, poor defensive rotations, dumb coaching decisions, and basically anything else you would expect from the Knicks in the final minutes of a winnable game.

Kristaps Porzingis sneaked up on Giannis Antetokounmpo in order to send his weak-ass shot attempt to the rafters.

Giannis got his revenge, of course, hitting the game-winner on a dumb switch with 1.9 seconds remaining.

Enes Kanter had It was his third consecutive game with at least 17 points and 17 rebounds, the first Knick to accomplish that feat since Bob McAdoo. He also had a double-double in the first half for the third straight game.

He also missed the potential go-ahead layup in the final seconds, so he did some yeoman’s work helping the tank. I don’t blame him for allowing Giannis to score the final bucket, though. He played it about as well as he could. He should never have been in that position.

Recap to come.
