The Milwaukee Bucks rolled over the New York Knicks in what was essentially a non-contest as they picked up their 12th straight win.
The Milwaukee Bucks picked up their 18th win from 21 games to start the season on Monday night, brushing aside the New York Knicks with comical ease for what was a 12th consecutive win overall.
It’s certainly not unusual any more to see the Bucks roll over mediocre teams, or worse, but the Knicks were something entirely different on Monday night.
In the second season of Fiserv Forum being open, it would seem fair to question whether the Bucks have yet faced a more hapless squad than the Knicks team that suited up against them this time around.
Of course, for as much blame as there is on the Knicks for their own ineptitude, there should also be credit for the Bucks for dispatching them so effortlessly on this occasion.
Giannis Antetokounmpo resumed regular double-double service as he racked up 29 points and 15 rebounds in just 22 minutes of action, while Khris Middleton starred on his return to the starting lineup, and the bench unit got plenty of opportunity to showcase their abilities too.
All in all, this was a great night for the Bucks, and a pretty light one at the same time.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the takeaways from Monday’s matchup.
