The Knicks played one of their most inspring games of the season, fighting back multiple times against the Bucks and triumphing in overtime.
With the Knicks leading 136-134 with just under two seconds left, Brook Lopez drew a foul. He missed the first free throw before intentionally missing the second. Giannis Antetokounmpo got the rebound but couldn't score as time ran out. >> Box score
Things to know about Saturday night's game
1.) A night after an article went to print where he was ripped by anonymous NBA scouts, Kevin Knox scored a career-high 26 points in what was his best overall game as a pro. Knox, who nailed five three-pointers, was especially awesome in the second half, and mixed in four assists, four rebounds, one block, and one steal to help New York make their furious fourth quarter comeback.
2.) After Trey Burke was injured in the first quarter and was ruled out for the rest of the game, the Knicks curiously didn't turn to Frank Ntilikina -- who sat the entire game despite not dealing with any kind of injury.
3.) Emmanuel Mudiay and Damyean Dotson both had big games. Mudiay had 27 points, including a three-pointer that tied the game late in the fourth quarter to set up overtime. Dotson had 18 points and five rebounds.
5.) Antetokounmpo was his usual ridiculous self, with 33 points, 19 rebounds, and seven assists.
6.) Courtney Lee didn't play in what was the first game of the season where he was active.
