The New York Knicks got back to their losing ways on Saturday, dropping one to the Milwaukee Bucks by the score of 115-102. The Bucks didn’t have Giannis Antetokounmpo, but they had more than enough to put the Knicks away, finishing up with a 35-25 fourth quarter.
In what is certainly one of his final games as Knicks coach, Jeff Hornacek leaned heavily on his veterans for offense, with fairly predictable results. Even Jarrett Jack, who had been stapled to the bench since the All-Star break, scored 18 points, dished 7 assists and grabbed 5 rebounds in 25 minutes.
On the rookie front, Damyean Dotson followed up his 30-point performance on Friday with 11 against Milwaukee.
Frank Ntilikina didn’t point many points on the scoreboard (7, on 3-7 shooting) but he made those points count, crossing over Thon Maker with gusto.
Kristaps Porzingis showed up on Latvian Heritage Night, which was nice to see.
Recap to come.
