AM: What matchup do you feel is most important for the outcome of Saturday’s game?

SL: The Knicks play the Bucks a lot, it’s weird. Like seriously, this is the fourth time already, who scheduled this?

Anyway, I’m a big fan of Giannis Antetokounmpo and everything he’s done thus far. He’s improved his jump shot a lot and is beginning to look like the total package superstar the Bucks had hoped for him to be. With that in mind, I’m very excited about the Greek Freak vs Carmelo Anthony match up.

The Freak is an awesome defender and his length can make it almost impossible for guys to get past him on the drive. That means that Anthony will have to either hit jumpers or get to the basket off of cuts to score. Carmelo’s been finding his shooting stroke as of late and his tight relationship with Kristaps has led to some gorgeous passes inside, so I’m expecting a nice night from Anthony.
