The Milwaukee Bucks will ride their two game winning streak into Madison Square Garden in New York as they take on the New York Knicks.
The Bucks have taken on some tough opponents as of late, with their winning streak coming against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Dallas Mavericks. Giannis Antetokoumpo was recently named player of the week of the past week, averaging 35.3 points per game over the four games the Bucks played through the week. This is Antetokounmpo's second nomination for the weekly award of the season. Bucks wing Khris Middleton has been ruled out versus the Knicks, but has been doing some light practices on his way to a potential return before the new year.
The New York Knicks have gotten off to an average start to the season, with a 9-11 record through their first 20 games. The Knicks are led by guard Jalen Brunson, who signed a 4 year contract with the team in the offseason, coming over from Dallas. New York was recently defeated by the Memphis Grizzlies, and will be coming off of a back to back after a Monday game against Detroit.
Tip from MSG is set for 6:30 P.M.
