With the wheels coming off this season, the New York Knicks host the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
After starting the season 17-17, New York is 6-14 in its last 20 games and has scored under 97 points during each of the three last three games, all losses. The Knicks combined to shoot 105 of 270 from the field during the slide, bottoming out with a 73-point performance in a 30-point loss at Boston on Jan. 31.
