M. Bucks vs NY Knicks by Lloyds
The home side haven't been so competitive in a long time as they already recorded one-third of the total wins they had last season. Having drafted a young talent in Jabari Parker and surrounding him with some good players they sure look as a much better team than last year. Brandon Knight (point guard) is putting some great performances (18.3 ppg) so they'll have an advantage over New York's Shane Larkin who is averaging 6.2 points per game. Larkin is not even a starting point guard but Jose Calderon is out with an injury so he is required to fill up the starting spot. That's the main reason why the Knicks struggle offensively with their "triangle offense". The visitors average only 93.9 points per game and beside Carmelo Anthony there is no other consistent scorer on the team. JR Smith and A'mare Stoudemire are both going up and down with their form which is causing the Knicks to lack bench scoring. The Knicks could catch a break defensively as Milwaukee are not so dangerous offensively. The Bucks average 91.8 points per game (28th in the league) but mostly because they tend to play in slow tempo games. However, playing in that tempo shows Milwaukee's efforts defensively as they allow only 92.8 ppg (4th in the league).
From what I seen this season, New York looks better when playing on the road even though they have recorded only one win so far. The Bucks are motivated to go over 0.500 but New York is starting to find their groove.
