The Knicks head to Milwaukee for the kickoff of the NBA’s bizarre new in-season tournament (I don’t even have a problem with the tournament, per se, as I think it’s more silly than it is actively bad, but…well, it’s pretty darn silly, especially the special court designs for tourney games), sadly still without RJ Barrett, whose knee continues to give him problems (hopefully it is nothing too serious).
Damian Lillard has played four games with the Bucks.
In those four games, he has scored:
39 points in a Bucks win (where he hit the game-winning shot)
6 points in a Bucks loss
25 points in a Bucks win
15 points in a Bucks loss
So, well, I think we can probably safely say that there is at least a chance that as Dame goes, so, too, goes the Bucks.
Hopefully he scores 2 points tonight.
Let’s go, Knicks, and go win this whole fucking silly tournament!
