Bucks hand Knicks 11th straight loss, 95-82
NEW YORK (AP) -- Zaza Pachulia had 16 points and 14 rebounds as the Milwaukee Bucks handed the New York Knicks their 11th straight loss, 95-82 Sunday night.
Tim Hardaway, Jr. had 17 points for the Knicks (5-31), who lost a franchise-record 10th straight home game. They are one overall loss from matching the team's 1985 record for most consecutive losses.
By the end of the fourth quarter, there were chants of "Fire Fisher!"
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 points and 12 rebounds for Milwaukee (18-17).
The Bucks were up 45-38 at the half and took control in the third. They were up by 13 four minutes into the quarter and the Knicks never got closer than 10 the rest of the way.
Milwaukee: Coach Jason Kidd was asked before the game if Brandon Knight deserved an All-Star berth. "I think if you go on numbers he has a chance and if your team is winning you should always be looked upon so we'll see," he said.
New York: Amare Stoudemire was out with a sore right knee. He is stunned by the team's struggles. "This is beyond my imagination at this point," Stoudemire said. "I never thought I'd see this. When I first signed with New York that wasn't the game plan." Stoudemire said he will not travel with the team for the next two road games.
Milwaukee: host the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
New York: at the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.
