The Bucks went about their business as professional as they could as OJ Mayo came off the bench and threw three consecutive three-pointers to lay down a marker in the game. Brandon Knight was not far behind as he also contributed 20 points.
Derek Fisher, the Knicks coach who was disappointed said: "We had a lot of concerns by the time we got to half time. When you get one of your key players back, others step back thinking he is going to do all the work.
That was not good enough. We have to be better. We have to find enough of a collective to do that. We cannot be sporadic."
Brandon Knight of the victorious a Bucks team said: "I try to lead by example. We all work together and hold each other accountable. Our expectations are to make the playoffs, but we don't just want to get to the playoffs. We want to go on a run."
His teammate OJ Mayo said: " it was a great game for our team and a great trip."
Carmelo Anthony said: " I thought my body responded well. The two week plan we implemented on my body paid off. The knee felt good. Things happen over and over again. I was not expecting us to be 14-0 down at the beginning. It keeps happening and we are the only ones who have control over that. I cannot pinpoint what is wrong. What I can say is that we are not playing with confidence as individuals and as a team. My focus now is just to get healthy. I am trying to give them confidence. I have never been through this before."
He also said: There is no need for us to give up as a team."
The Bucks will hope they can continue to win games when they get back home, however the Knicks are clearly in transition. Derek Fisher is a rookie coach and it is going to take a while to get these Knicks back to where they once belonged.
