Bucks nip Knicks 101-98
MILWAUKEE — Brandon Knight made a 3-pointer with 1 point 4 seconds left to lift the Bucks to a rare victory, 101-98 over the New York Knicks Monday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Carmelo Anthony drained a deep three for the last of his 36 points to tie the game at 98 before Knight’s heroics.
The game was special for Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo; his parents and two brothers finally got to see him play for the first time in a Milwaukee uniform; the nineteen year-old responded with 15 points (8 in the 4th quarter).
Coach Larry Drew’s team is still sporting a league-worst 9-39 record; but the Bucks snapped their latest slide of 6 games.
