Knicks Bounce Back, Defeats Rival Bucks 111-107

The New York Knicks bounced back from their loss to the Chicago Bulls last night by beating the team that’s threatening their 8th place spot in the East, the Milwaukee Bucks 111-107.

In another nail-biting match, the Knicks once again came out on top by means of a crucial three-pointer. This time, J.R. Smith provided the heroics with a minute left in the 4th quarter to give an important lead to the Knicks.

Carmelo Anthony continues his stellar play with 32 points and 10 rebounds, while defensive anchor Tyson Chandler added 19 points and 11 rebound while  and Iman Shumpert has proven to be a reliable contributor with 16 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assist, and 3 steals.

The team effort tonight by the Knicks was a lot more balanced than their previous two games against the Bulls, and the Knicks are showing the proper urgency needed as the team enters a tough stretch of games before the playoffs.

The Bucks were led by Monta Ellis with an impressive 35 points, 10 assists, and 4 steals, while back court partner Brandon Jennings added 22 points and 6 assists of his own.

Mike Dunleavy continues his scoring spree off-the-bench with 23 points but the Knicks’ 27-19 4th quarter run proved to be too much for the Bucks.

The win moves New York 2 full games ahead of the Bucks for the final and 8th spot in the East as they try to overtake the Philadelphia 76ers for the 7th spot.
