The Milwaukee Bucks make their first trip of the season to Madison Square Garden, where they’ll aim to move to 16-6 with a win over the New York Knicks.
The Milwaukee Bucks enter Saturday evening’s game with the New York Knicks with plenty of reasons to feel good.
A strong start to the season certainly stands at the forefront of that confidence, but so will the fact that matchups with the Knicks have been very kind to them of late.
Milwaukee picked up an 11-point win over the Knicks at Fiserv Forum earlier in the season, which made for their sixth consecutive victory against New York. Built in to that winning streak, and evident in the years before that too, is a knack for dramatic and memorable wins and plays being delivered by those in Milwaukee colors.
On Saturday, the Bucks will be hoping for more of the same against a Knicks team that’s generally struggled this season and looks increasingly destined for a spot in the lottery ahead of next year’s draft.
With all of that in mind, let’s take a closer look at what you should be watching out for when the Bucks and Knicks go head-to-head from Madison Square Garden.
