NEW YORK – The Milwaukee Bucks played a strong half of basketball at Madison Square Garden Friday night.  They took a 53-47 lead into halftime, but could not mirror the intensity in the second half.  The Bucks went cold for more than three minutes in the third quarter while the Knicks went on a 10-0 run.   With just over two minutes to play in the frame, New York’s J.R. Smith knocked in a three point basket to take the lead, one the Bucks would never get back.  Milwaukee only scored 13 points in the 4th quarter and fall to the Knicks, 96-86.  The Bucks are back at home Saturday night playing the Orlando Magic.
