Knicks need defense to step up against high-scoring Bucks

Knicks need defense to step up against high-scoring Bucks

via WordPress ift.tt/2KLmxh7

As if the New York Knicks — losers of two straight and seven of 10 — needed anything more to worry about, the Milwaukee Bucks bring the NBA’s top offense to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

In the Knicks, Milwaukee will find a defense that has reverted back to its old, poor, ways.

After clamping up in a surprising three-game winning streak, which included victories in Boston and Memphis sandwiching a home win over the New Orleans Pelicans, New York reverted to its worrisome ways in losing two straight at Detroit and Philadelphia.

During the three-game run — which followed a five-game losing streak of its own — the Knicks allowed just over 105 points per game, far down from the 113.1 they allow on the season.

At the Pistons and Sixers, New York allowed 115 and 117 points, respectively, in two losses that sent them to 7-16 on the season.

“We didn’t have an answer for any of them,” head coach David Fizdale told reporters after the game. “That was a focused team, they came out with really good focus. When you get a veteran team that’s hitting that point where they’re all starting to figure it out, we just got blitzed and we really didn’t have an answer for anything they did.”

And now comes the Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo, comes to town.

Antetokounmpo is playing at an MVP level, averaging 27.3 points, 12.9 rebounds and 6.0 assists while shooting 57.7 percent from the field.

The Knicks are finding him at a bad time, too.

Antetokounmpo had a season-high 36 points, plus 11 rebounds and eight assists, in a 116-113 win over Chicago on Wednesday.

That masterpiece capped off a run of four 33-point games in his last five games.

New York got lucky the last time the two teams met last April, when Antetokounmpo sat out with a sore ankle. The Bucks still scored the 115-102 win, with Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe both picking up the slack with 22 points.

It was Middleton again who proved the difference for the Bucks on Wednesday against the Bulls, when he hit a 3-pointer to snap a 113-113 tie.

“For several years, I think Khris has been a big-shot maker, a big-shot guy at the end of games,” Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer told reporters after the game. “When you don’t get a touch that can make it harder. … He’s a heck of player, heck of a big-time gamer when the game is on the line.”

With Kristaps Porzingis still sidelined, the Knicks are still looking for their go-to guy. They’ve had different leading scorers in each of the last five games, with Tim Hardaway Jr. leading the team in scoring at 22.2 points per game, even if he was stifled against the 76ers with five points, one rebound, two assists and just 1-of-11 shooting from the field, 0-of-6 from three.

“Defensively, they were getting a lot of good buckets and they were running us around off screens,” Knicks rookie forward Kevin Knox said. “We were getting tired so we were coming down at the end and basically not really running our stuff. So coach called us around halftime, we came in the second half and started running some more of our plays, just running all the way through the shot clock, and getting good shots toward the end.”

Mudiay scores 28, Knicks top Bucks 136-134 in OT

Mudiay scores 28, Knicks top Bucks 136-134 in OT

via WordPress ift.tt/2SqMQvJ

NEW YORK (AP) — Emmanuel Mudiay scored 28 points to lead the New York Knicks to a 136-134 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

Rookie forward Kevin Knox scored a career-high 26 points as New York snapped a two-game losing streak. Damyean Dotson and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 21 points each. Noah Vonleh contributed 15 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 33 points and 19 rebounds for Milwaukee, which has lost three of its last five. Eric Bledsoe added 27 points. Malcolm Brogdon finished with 22 points, Brook Lopez had 13, and Khris Middleton and Tony Snell each chipped in with 10.

New York took its first lead since Hardaway’s 3-pointer midway through the first quarter on Enes Kanter’s jumper from the wing 3:13 into the third period, giving the Knicks a 71-70 advantage.

But that lead didn’t last long as Milwaukee went on a 17-0 run before Knox hit a 3-pointer. The Bucks led by as many as 16 points before the Knicks rallied, scoring the last seven points of the quarter and cutting the deficit to four at 97-93.

Mitchell Robinson opened the fourth quarter with a layup as the Knicks closed within two, but Antetokounmpo converted a three-point play, Sterling Brown added a four-point play and Brogdon hit a 3-pointer as Milwaukee pushed the lead to eight, 107-99. Moments later, Brown scored on a layup and extended the lead to 113-99.

But New York would not go away. The Knicks outscored Milwaukee 25-11 in the final 6:39 to force overtime. Mudiay hit a 3-pointer that tied the game at 124-all before the Knicks forced Antetokounmpo into a shot-clock violation, setting up the extra session.

Antetokounmpo hit a free throw that started the scoring in overtime, and New York responded with a 3-pointer by Mudiay that gave the Knicks a 127-125 lead. Bledsoe tied the game with a layup, but Mudiay answered again with another 3. Bledsoe hit a 3-pointer that tied the game at 130-all, then Antetokounmpo scored Milwaukee’s next four points, sandwiched around a Hardaway jumper as the Bucks to a 134-132 lead.

Following a timeout, Dotson knocked down a 3-pointer that gave the Knicks a 135-134 edge. Antetokounmpo missed a runner in the lane, and a Mudiay hit a free throw that pushed New York’s advantage to 136-134.

On the next possession, Robinson blocked Bledsoe’s driving layup, forcing a jump ball. Antetokounmpo won the tip, and Lopez was fouled. He missed both free throws, and Antetokounmpo’s last attempt under the basket was blocked by Kanter.

TIP-INS:

BUCKS: Antetokounmpo also recorded a team-high seven assists. He has led Milwaukee in assists nine times this season. Antetokounmpo was four assists away from recording his third triple-double of the season, and the 12th of his career.

KNICKS: During his pregame press briefing, Fizdale said Courtney Lee could make his 2018-19 debut against the Bucks, depending on circumstances in the game. However, Lee did not step onto the court and has missed the first 24 games of the season with neck spasms. “He’s gotten a few days under his belt with real contact,” Fizdale said of Lee, who began practicing with the Knicks last week. “I think all of us feel comfortable with it. Honestly, either way, it’s not like I’m throwing him out there for a lot of minutes.” . New York lost guard Trey Burke Jr. for the game with 4:54 left in the first quarter with a sprained right knee after he landed awkwardly on a layup attempt. A team spokesman said X-rays were negative.

GROWING PAINS:

In the first season under Fizdale, the historically quick-fix Knicks are undergoing the early stages of a rebuilding process. And they appear to have a fan in Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer.

“They’re a hard working, competitive group,” Budenholzer said in his pregame media availability. “Got a mix of, you know, a few veterans and some young guys. They play hard. Well coached. I think Tim Hardaway Jr. can get going. Put a lot of buckets up. (Enes) Kanter inside is a physical presence. Trey Burke and different guys — (rookie guard Allonzo) Trier has had a great rookie year — so I think different nights can be different guys. Impressed with what they doing.”

While Budenholzer was praiseworthy, Fizdale was more straightforward in his analysis of his team.

“Get better,” Fizdale said. “We (have) one message (and) it (doesn’t) matter where we are: Are we getting better? Are we competing at our highest levels? Are we growing each game from what we’ve been through before?”

ETC.

Prior to the national anthem, there was a moment of silence for President George H.W. Bush, who passed away Friday night. . Among the 19,812 in attendance were former Knicks Dick Barnett, Latrell Sprewell, Michael Ray Richardson; actors Dustin Hoffman, Emily Ratajkowski, Kelly AuCoin and Ben Sinclair; radio host Howard Stern; comedian Jon Stewart; and rappers GZA, Biz Markie and Vinnie Brown.

UP NEXT:

Bucks: Host Detroit on Wednesday in the first of four regular-season matchups between the Central Division rivals.

Knicks: Host Washington on Monday night.

Ahead of Curry return, Kerr shares one of his favorite Steph moments



OAKLAND – If things go as expected, Stephen Curry will return to the court Saturday evening when Golden State Warriors play host to the Memphis Grizzlies for the second time in less than two weeks.

Before his team’s game Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets, a reporter asked Kerr what he expected from Curry if he does in fact return Saturday. Kerr pulled a line from Kevin Garnett’s famed post-NBA Championship speech to answer, responding with “Anything is possible.”

“With Steph nothing would shock me,” Kerr told reporters Wednesday. “He might make 10 straight shots. He might miss 10 in a row, then make eight. With Steph, all it is is a matter of him finding his rhythm.”

Two season ago Curry missed six of the Warriors’ first eight games of the playoffs, including the first three games of the team’s second-round matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers. After starting off the game ice-cold, Curry found his rhythm on his way to a 40 point performance, including 17 in the team’s overtime win.

Kerr brought up that moment to help illustrate what could be possible when Curry hits the court for the first time in weeks.

“I do remember in the payoffs a few years ago against Portland when he came back he had missed about six games. He came back and he was like 0-for-11 to start the game and then he made his 12th shot and shimmied back down the court, which was one of my favorite Steph moments. The ultimate display of confidence…1-for-12, he’s shimmying. It’s awesome.”

You to be overflowing with confidence to be a successful shooter in the NBA, something Stephen Curry is not short on – as evidenced by Kerr’s story.
