Milwaukee Bucks lose to the New York Knicks and are now the 10th seed

Derrick Rose turned back the clock to his MVP form and scored 23 points to defeat the reigning champion, Milwaukee Bucks, by 113-98

Perhaps karma gave Giannis Antetokounmpo a break during tonight’s Knicks-Bucks game. He was seen laughing off his altercation with the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft this season. He might want to save his comments for a more private setting after tonight’s outcome. Against the reigning champions, Derrick Rose decided to channel his elder self from the Chicago Bulls days. He scored 10 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach at the conclusion. At Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee this evening, Julius Randle was also one of the Knicks’ most significant players. With 32 points and 12 rebounds against the Bucks, he was an all-around performer. Nerlens Noel, who had an outstanding 13 rebounds against the champions, was also key for New York. Despite scoring 25 points tonight and playing at home, Giannis Antetokounmpo was unable to assist his team reach the promised land.


With a 6-3 record after tonight’s loss, the Knicks aren’t doing too badly. Milwaukee is still attempting to find its stride, with mixed outcomes that raise a lot of questions. A 4-5 record does not represent the championship-winning team from the previous season.

The Bucks will play the Washington Wizards in the afternoon on Sunday. Rose and the New York Knicks face the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden.
