Friday night, the New York Knicks rode a hot second half to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks 101-83. On this night in which the legends of the 1972-1973 championship team were honored, Carmelo Anthony played like a legend himself, recording his third straight 40+ point game. JR Smith chipped in with 30 points himself and Tyson Chandler looked healthy in his second game back from injury.

With their 11th straight victory, the Knicks have now swept the season series from Milwaukee 3-0.

Here are my five takeaways from the game.
