The Bucks looked really good this week with a blowout win over the New York Knicks. The Knicks are a solid team this year with a .500 record while leading the league in some impressive defensive statistics, so this win was not against some pushover team. The game remained pretty close until the end of the second quarter, when the Bucks started pulling away. From there, there was no chance for the Knicks. While the starters played very well, the surprise star of the night was Bryn Forbes, who went 7-7 from three. Hopefully this shooting can continue and the Bucks can rely on him as a capable 3 point shooter going forward. Giannis was able to dominate the paint as normal as he was able to dunk at will against the Knicks.
The Bucks have back to back games against the Washington Wizards, one of the worst teams in the league. This should be a nice couple of games before they play the Sixers, who have the current best record in the NBA Eastern conference. That can turn out to be a critical game as the Bucks are only two games back on the Sixers. The Bucks are red hot these past couple of weeks so anything is possible. If the bench can start playing better along with a possible trade at the center position, then the Bucks are looking very good.
