The Milwaukee Bucks are obviously the better team here, but they're going up against a Knicks team that competes and only loses by an average of 1.9 points in the underdog role. The Knicks also entered the break on fire offensively, shooting 51 percent from the field and 45.6 percent from three in their last five games.
