For the second time in six games, the New York Knicks will face the Milwaukee Bucks. New York opened the season with a shocking 122-97 road domination of Milwaukee, and will look to experience similar success at Madison Square Garden on Friday, November 6.

It won’t be an easy task.

The first time around, the Knicks played a shorthanded Bucks team. New York was without starting shooting guard Arron Afflalo, but Milwaukee was down both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker.

Both Antetokounmpo and Parker are expected to play on Friday night.

With the two rising stars back in the Bucks’ starting lineup, the Knicks will have their hands full. Fortunately, they’ve played well enough against superior opponents to warrant the belief that New York can pull out another upset win.

The question is, how can the Knicks avoid falling to 2-4 overall and 0-3 at Madison Square Garden?
