    Game Thread Knicks @ Bucks, Nov 9

















    New York, which went 3 of 19 from 3-point range Sunday after going 28 of 53 in the two previous games, wasn’t much better offensively in three losses to the Bucks last season. The Knicks averaged 87.0 points and were held to 67 in the last meeting.

    The addition of Stoudemire might help, as he’s averaged 23.5 points in his last six meetings against the Bucks.

    ☆A look at the Bucks:

    Milwaukee (2-5) is coming off a poor offensive performance of its own in an 87-81 loss to New Orleans on Saturday. The Bucks, who are averaging 89.6 points, shot 38.6 percent for a second straight game to see their season mark drop to 39.9. They were 4 of 16 from 3-point range and scored 35 points in the first half.

    “It was just an ugly game for us,” point guard Brandon Jennings(notes) said. “It’s starting to get a little bit ridiculous now because every day it’s like it’s something - shots not falling and we just all break down. Some people are probably not on the same page, or I don’t know what it is, but it’s getting a little bit annoying now.”

    Even the return of Andrew Bogut(notes) didn’t help. After missing the previous game with a migraine, Bogut had 19 points and 14 rebounds.

    Bogut had one of the best games of his career the last time he faced the Knicks, scoring 24 points to go along with 20 rebounds and five blocked shots in an 83-67 win Feb. 22.


    KEY MATCH UP:

    Felton VS Jennings

    We could have had Jennings ahead of Hill in last year's draft. That didn't happen. Result: Raymond Felton. You know he's going to bring it. Jennings will also have to put up with Douglas' defence. Let's wear this cat down and choke up their offence.

    Keys to a W:

    As always, DEFENCE. Containing my fellow Ozi, Andrew Bogut, is no small task, but effective use of substitutions and fouls between The Gov and Ronnie T will at least, hopefully, dampen Bogut's output.

    Effective ball movement, HIGH% shots also critical to keeping this team above .500.

    Question Mark

    Nice thread!

    This is going to be a great game. I expect this one to go down to the wire.

    im hopin to at least see a good, hard fought game that goes down to the final minute. I know its early but it'd be nice to get this win to avoid going below .500

    Im afraid of going below .500 In the past, once we fell below .500 we didnt seem to ever make it back

    The Bucks are a pretty talented team and they beat us pretty bad last year but we're an entirely different team.

    Felton and Douglas are going to do much better against Brandon Jennings than Chris Duhon did. Mozgov and Turiaf are going to play much better against Bogut than David Lee did. Meanwhile, they no longer have Luke Ridnour, and we should NOT be losing to a team starting Drew Gooden at PF, that's just sad.

    This is kind of a MUST WIN. I would hate to go below .500. Coach will have the team ready to ball I think.
