Knicks Vs. Bucks Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After a tough loss to the Chicago Bulls, a quick bounce back is needed.

The New York Knicks will play their most important game of the season to date against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Bradley Center on Wednesday evening.

New York is just one game ahead of Milwaukee for the eighth and final seed in the Eastern Conference. A loss would technically push the Knicks out of the playoffs because the winner of tonight's game will hold the tiebreaker.

If New York gets a victory, it would have a two game advantage with just eight games to play.

The Knicks need to find some secondary scoring. Carmelo Anthony has been a one-man band without Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin in the lineup.

Anthony has been lighting it up as of late, scoring 43 on Sunday and then 29 points last night, but the help hasn't been there.

Steve Novak and Baron Davis have to provide a spark. Novak has just two points in the last two games combined while Davis has only 10 points in that time with only 10 assists and five turnovers.

New York will return home after tonight to play Washington on Friday.

Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
