Bucks 120, Knicks 112: Scenes from the end of a long, depressing road trip

Bucks > Knicks

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

The New York Knicks ended their road trip oh-for-whatever...four? Five? Did I catch a niner in there? Anyway, the point is, they lost. 120-112 is your final.

Believe it or not, however, they didn’t totally blow this game in the dreaded third quarter; in fact, they straight-up won the period, 34-31. I’m as amazed as you are! New York even took a brief lead—their only lead of the game—before Giannis Antetokounmpo annihilated them on both ends of the court.

Tim Hardaway Jr. had one of his better games of the season, dropping 26 points and 7 rebounds. He brought the Knicks to within 5 at the half with this buzzer-beater.

Emmanuel Mudiay was a one-man manure factory in the first half, scoring ZERO points to go along with his ZERO assists. But to the man’s credit, he caught fire in the second half, scoring 19 points...not all of which came in garbage time. Baby steps!

Recap to come.
