The New York have lost three consecutive games and have fallen four and half games out of first place in the Atlantic Division. Currently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, the Knicks only lead the nine-seed Bucks by three games, who they face Friday night in Milwaukee.
A fourth straight loss to the Bucks would trim the Knicks' lead to two games. Like the Knicks, the Bucks have struggled as of late, losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Knicks are 7-12 on the road this season.
