The Milwaukee Bucks (2-0) have a home outing at BMO Harris Bradley Center on Monday night when they take on the New York Knicks (1-2).

Milwaukee last played on Friday when they defeated the Indiana Pacers on their home floor by the score of 118-101. The ball was moving rather well for them as they finished with 27 assists on 44 field goals. Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 26 points and 15 rebounds while Khris Middleton scored 23. According to ESPN, the Bucks' 47 attempts from behind the arc on Friday are their most in franchise history.

The Knicks lost their second straight outing in heartbreaking fashion on Saturday when they fell to the Boston Celtics 103-101.

Trey Burke got fouled near the end of the game on a three-point try which gave him the opportunity to tie the game, but he missed the first free throw. As a team, they missed 10 of their 27 tries from the charity stripe. Tim Hardaway Jr. led the team with 24 points while Enes Kanter scored 17 and grabbed 15 boards.
