MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Most teams have been successful at trying to outscore the up-tempo and dynamic New York Knicks offense. The Milwaukee Bucks are beating them on their own terms.
The Bucks look to put together another strong defensive effort against the Knicks and sweep the season series for the first time in 18 years as the teams meet at the Bradley Center on Tuesday night.
New York (25-37) has lost 12 of 16 and is out of playoff position in the Eastern Conference, but a lack of offense certainly isn't to blame.
The Knicks are averaging 111.4 points in that span -- the third-highest mark in the league.
Fourth in the NBA in scoring (106.0), New York has reached triple figures in 23 straight games. The Knicks' opponents, however, have reached at least 100 points in all but four of those contests.
