New York’s Steve Novak added 19 points and Tyson Chandler chipped in with 17 points and eight rebounds for the Knicks, who snapped a three-game road losing streak.
Jason Kidd missed his second game in a row for New York with lower back spasms.
Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings and Beno Udrih each scored 18 points.
