Knicks Sweep Season With Bucks


With New York currently the 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference and Milwaukee just 2 1/2 games back of Boston for the 7th seed, there is a chance the two teams meet again in the first round of the playoffs. Though the Bucks boast a dynamic offensive backcourt with JJ Redick, Brandon Jennings, and Monta Ellis, and one of the league's premier shot blockers in Larry Sanders, the Knicks have taken care of the Bucks handily this season. 

New York's average margin of victory in the three wins has been 14 points. Should these two teams meet in the first round, the Knicks look quite capable of not only handling, but dominating the Bucks.
