Featured Game | New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks

Why the Bucks can cover

Though Milwaukee continues to miss Middleton, the Bucks can lean on the best player on the floor in Giannis Antetokounmpo. The two-time MVP and six-time All-NBA selection is averaging 30.9 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game this season, while connecting on 53.4% of shot attempts. He captains an offense that ranks in the top 10 of the NBA in offensive rebound rate (30.4%) and second-chance points (14.9 per game), while also landing above the NBA average with 24.1 free throw attempts per game. 

New York ranks in the bottom five of the league in defensive efficiency this season, and the Knicks have a very poor defensive rebound rate of less than 69%. The Bucks also have the league’s best defense, yielding fewer than 1.07 points per possession, and Milwaukee is facing a New York team that is near the bottom of the NBA in 3-point accuracy and field goal accuracy.

Why the Knicks can cover

Though New York is on a back-to-back with travel, the Knicks have the benefit of home-court advantage. Tom Thibodeau’s team also has three players averaging at least 18 points per game this season, with top-eight marks in turnover rate, offensive rebound rate, second-chance points, and points in the paint. New York also ranks in the top 10 of the NBA in free throw creation and free throw accuracy, and the Bucks rank in the bottom five of the league in creating only 13.6 turnovers per game on defense. 

On defense, New York is in the top 10 in field goal percentage allowed, 2-point percentage allowed, and points allowed in the paint, with Milwaukee shooting only 45.7% from the field this season. The Bucks also have a glaring weakness at the free throw line, shooting only 71.4%, and that can level the playing field.
