New York Knicks Form

New York head into this NBA In-Season Tournament clash having won 10 of their last 13 games to improve to 12-7.

The Knicks enjoyed two three-game win streaks earlier this run, and they are now looking to win four straight for the first time this season.

They bounced back from a 116-113 defeat to Phoenix with a 115-91 tournament win over Charlotte that gave them a 3-1 group record.

New York then backed up that victory with a 118-112 victory over Detroit when they hosted the Pistons at Madison Square Garden.

The Knicks then went out on the road and made it three wins in a row by beating the Raptors in Toronto, 119-106.

Milwaukee Bucks Form

Milwaukee come into this matchup having bounced back from a shock loss to improve their record to 14-6.

The Bucks enjoyed a five-game win streak last month that was brought to an end by a 119-116 defeat in Boston.

They rebounded immediately with a 131-28 tournament win, and backed that up with a 108-102 victory over Portland.

Milwaukee then made it three-in-a-row with a 131-124 tournament victory in Miami that saw them finish the group stage 4-0, securing a place in the quarter-finals.

The Bucks’ win streak was halted by a 120-113 overtime defeat in Chicago, but the responded quickly in the form of a 132-121 win at home to Atlanta.

Verdict

Milwaukee are in good form, but their spread record at home is a big red flag.

The Bucks have rarely covered at the Forum this season, and this Knicks team is a good defensive group who can, at the very least, run them close.
