New York Knicks vs Milwaukee Bucks – 1/4/17 – Game Recap

New York Knicks vs Milwaukee Bucks
Game 37: January 4, 2017
Bucks 105, Knicks 104

Written by Eric Weinstein – @ericcweinsteinn

This one hurt me right in my heart. Also, my soul hurts a little bit too.

The Knicks took on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks at MSG tonight, and took a real punch to the gut, courtesy of the Greek Freak. Giannis hit a fadeaway jumper as time expired to end this one, 105-104. There are so many things I could say about this game that could be the reason why the Knicks lost their sixth (crying face) in a row, but that turnaround from Giannis really just hit like a dagger to the heart. Carmelo Anthony was superb tonight for the Knicks and led the way with 30 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists. Mindaugus Kuzminskas scored a season high 15 points off the bench, and Derrick Rose also scored 15 points, but committed a costly turnover which led to the game winning bucket. Antetokounmpo left MSG with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and the tears of all the fans watching this game. Kristaps Porzingis sat out his third straight game with the Achilles injury.

Takeaways from this game

No killer instinct at all:

If you read the last recap against the Magic, (which you should, it’s good, but I’m admittedly biased) I said that Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 8

An up a down week.  There was the Utah game where the Knicks got spanked, the Kings game that the Knicks should have won, and the Portland game where they finally did win.  A lot of shake ups in the rankings this week as Porzingis terrible week gets him dethroned, and O’Quinn gets out of the doghouse and shoots up the standings.

1 Anthony, Carmelo Yeah he was bad in Utah, but who wasn’t.  Melo was crazy good in Portland with arguably his best outing of the season. Lets hope we see more games like that. 3
2 Afflalo, Arron It’s nice having another scoring option, Afflalo hasn’t been amazing, but he’s been fairly reliable and consistent, something no one else on the team currently has. 2
3 O’Quinn, Kyle I don’t know what to make of this, KOQ had a great week, grabbed a ton of boards, and even had a 7-8 night against Portland.  Why does Fisher bench him for weeks at a time? 13
4 Thomas, Lance Never thought I’d ever put Thomas this high.  Does this count as my apology? 7
5 Vujacic, Sasha This is like the bizarro standings.  I still think we’d be better off if Sasha were in a suit, but I can’t deny how good he was this week.  Sasha almost led a comeback in Utah after a no show by the starters. Continue reading

2015/16 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 7

The Knicks went 2-2 this week, beating 2 absolutely terrible teams, and losing to 2 decent teams.  Although the Bucks aren’t nearly as good as the Knicks made them look.  Fisher seems to finally be getting the rotation down to 10 guys which makes my life easier.

1 Porzingis, Kristaps Porzingis was the best player on the Knicks for 3 of the 4 games this week.  If only we had a max level super star to help him out. 1
2 Afflalo, Arron His 3 point shot hasn’t been there, but he’s shooting well from everywhere else on the court, rebounding, and playing defense.  I’ll take it. 2
3 Anthony, Carmelo Melo did have a season high in assists (8) against the Mavs, but he’s been shooting 33% for too often to even consider moving him higher on this list. 3
4 Calderon, Jose Look who’s back from the dead!  I almost forgot what it’s like having a PG do point guardy things. 5
5 Seraphin, Kevin Seraphin asked Fisher how he could get more playing time and Fisher said play better defense.  Since then Seraphin has been the most consistant player on the Knicks bench. Continue reading
