The Knicks will return home after losing 120-114 to Milwaukee. New York went 0-4 on its road trip and will now face more questions about being a legitimate playoff team.
Another road game, another loss for the Knicks.
New York was able to score at will, unfortunately so were the Bucks in a 119-114 loss at the Bradley Center.
Brandon Jennings led the way for Milwaukee with 25 points, 10 assists and five rebounds. Ersan Ilyasova also went off for 26 points on 9 of 13 shooting just two nights after scoring 32 against Chicago.
Amare Stoudemire scored 27 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in a losing cause. Stoudemire is the one silver lining with three double-doubles on a four game road trip that didn't produce a single win.
The Knicks (18-22) were ultimately undone by Milwaukee (16-24) catching fire from downtown. The Bucks shot an amazing 13 of 26 from beyond the arc, with Jennings and Carlos Delfino combining for seven of them.
Jeremy Lin finally returned to his play-making form pouring in 20 points and dishing out 13 assists. Lin only turned the ball only five times, which isn't great but survivable. However, as a team New York committed 17 turnovers, higher than its average which is dead last in the league.
Baron Davis also had a nice game, adding nine points and nine assists in 30 minutes.
The Knicks will now limp home looking to bounce back Sunday against the 76ers.
