The Milwaukee Bucks will look to continue to assert their authority at the top of the East, and build on their streak, when the New York Knicks visit on Monday.

The Milwaukee Bucks are on a roll, and they certainly won’t be planning on slowing down when the New York Knicks come to town on Monday night.

As the Knicks make their first visit of the campaign to Fiserv Forum, the Bucks are in the process of gradually starting to pull away from much of their competition at the top of the East.

The Toronto Raptors remain the Bucks’ closest challenger in the standings in the early stages of the season, with the gap between Milwaukee and a team such as the Philadelphia 76ers certainly a little bigger than most would have predicted as we near the quarter-season mark.

With seven of Milwaukee’s next 10 games to be played at Fiserv Forum, and all three of those road games against below .500 squads, there’s no reason to believe that gap couldn’t yet widen over the course of the next three weeks or so.

The first step in that process will be for Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co. to take care of business against the Knicks, though.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at three things to watch out for in Monday night’s action at Fiserv Forum.
