NEW YORK (AP) -- Giannis Antetokounmpo made a turnaround jumper at the buzzer to give the Milwaukee Bucks a 105-104 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.
Antetokounmpo finished with 27 points and 13 rebounds, and he gave the Bucks a final possession when he knocked the ball off Derrick Rose and out of bounds with 8.6 seconds left. Officials originally ruled the ball was off the Bucks but reversed the call after video review. >> Read more
- Carmelo Anthony found his groove again, at least for most of this game. He picked his spots nicely and fought for offensive opportunities underneath the basket. As Anthony heated up, he proved to be unselfish and look for those around him. The offense flowed nicely until late in the fourth, when the star forward appeared to force up a bevy of jumpers. There were plenty of squandered chances.
- Lance Thomas allowed Giannis Antetokounmpo's game winner to fall, but he otherwise played reliable defense. Once again, he fit in well with the starters. Thomas served as the perfect ying to Mindaugas Kuzminskas' yang on offense. The two complemented each other well, with Kuzminskas (15 points) sinking shots around the perimeter. Kudos to Jeff Hornacek for finding a good combination in the absence of Kristaps Porzingis.
- This loss wouldn't be as much of a heartbreaker if it didn't come on the heels of an existent five-game skid. It'll be up to Hornacek and Co. to encourage this group around the positives from this one. They'll be out for revenge on Friday.
