New York Knicks: 9-4 (4-4 on the road)
Milwaukee Bucks: 7-5 (3-3 at home)
Head-to-Head: First Meeting
Ah, damnit. The Bucks. I hate playing the Bucks.
Seems like every time we play them, someone on their team has a career game (I’m looking at you Illyasova).
Jason Kidd won’t be playing and is actually out indefinitely with back issues. The Knicks should be fine though. It was a terrible game by Ray against the Nets, but he’ll bounce back.
This year, the Bucks are sort of an up and down team. No real identity. Never thought the pairing of Ellis and Jennings made sense.
Key Match-up: Brandon Jennings vs. Ray Felton - Both are going to come into this game with a chip on their shoulder. Felton for sucking it up against the Nets and Jennings who will forever never forgive the Knicks for passing up on him in the draft.
What 2 Watch:
- If it’s a close game (which I think it will be), interested to see how we look in crunch time. So far, we haven’t done so well in close games.
- Novak - Novakaine returns home, expect a few three’s from him to go in…
Knicks need to bounce back, have a good chance of closing out the opening month of the NBA season with an 11-4 record (end the month against the Wizards).
