The Milwaukee Bucks restored hope with an impressive win on Star Wars Night.

They’re developing a habit of doing this. Just as the Milwaukee Bucks put together a couple of performances that fill you with despair, they bounce back with a game that gives real cause for optimism.

Kristaps Porzingis has been on a tear, creating highlight after highlight of late, and as a result the Knicks are much better than anticipated. They don’t have anywhere near Milwaukee’s level of talent though, and thankfully on this occasion, that shone through for the Bucks.
