2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

The Knicks kick off the second half of their season by traveling to Milwaukee to take on the Milwaukee Bucks, who are playing pretty well overall, but a notable step below the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Nets and the Sixers.

The Knicks will be without Derrick Rose (still in the COVID-19 contact tracing program. He’ll probably get out of it by Tuesday) and Mitchell Robinson (who is still recovering from a broken hand) but they have the rest of the team healthy, including Taj Gibson’s return to action as the backup center behind Nerlens Noel.

The Knicks kicked the Bucks’ ass earlier this season in what was probably their most impressive win of the season (either that or the Celtics stomping), so it would sure be sweet to see them repeat that feat as the kick off the second half and try to put some distance between them and .500!

Let’s go, get two games over .500, Knicks!
