NEW YORK KNICKS @ MILWAUKEE BUCKS BETTING PREVIEW
This year New York Knicks are one of the weakest team ever that performed at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks have won just five of their 40 games so far this season, are currently on a 15-game losing streak, and have only won one of their last 26 contests. Last time out, NY grossly failed to be competitive in a 110-82 home loss to the Charlotte Hornets and are near the bottom of the NBA with 92.9 points per game.
Injuries to key men Carmelo Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire, Jose Calderon, Andrea Bargnani and Iman Shumpert have hampered head coach Derek Fisher's plans. Anyway, Carmelo Anthony is expected to play Thursday after missing the last six games with an ailing knee. Knicks guard Langston Galloway scored 19 points in his Madison Square Garden debut against Houston on Jan. 8.
The Milwaukee Bucks have a 20-19 record and occupying fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Jason Kidd has assembled a young, exciting team that is playing very well. They return to the hardwood off a competitive loss against the aforementioned Bulls.
Milwaukee (20-19) took advantage of the Anthony-less Knicks in a 95-82 win in New York on Jan. 4. Including that victory, the Bucks had won five of seven overall and five in a row on the road prior to Saturday's 95-87 loss at Chicago.
The Bucks had to deal with the devastating injury loss of their No 2 overall draft pick Jabari Parker. The 23-year-old guard Brandon Knight has been the Bucks’ leading scorer this season with 18.2 points per game
