In Sunday's win against Milwaukee, New York Knicks guard Donte DiVincenzo shot 8-of-11 from three for 26 points. He was feeling himself in the same arena where his NBA career began. In 2018, Milwaukee selected DiVincenzo with the No. 17 overall pick.

After the game, Giannis Antetokounmpo said while he's happy that DiVincenzo is doing well in New York, he isn't pleased that his former teammate ruined his LEGO joy.

If you can't tell, Antetokounmpo doesn't like to lose. The Bucks are one of the top teams in the East, but they still haven't come together and played their best basketball. It'd really help if Milwaukee had someone like DiVincenzo in the backcourt with Damian Lillard. Oh, wait.

In other news, New York Post's Stefan Bondy questioned if Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks will be in Tom Thibodeau's playoff rotation. Especially with how well Miles McBride has played, there's a very slim chance Burks will play meaningful postseason minutes. New York could use Bogdanovic's shooting off the bench, but he's been inconsistent. He has started to look better in recent games.

This final stretch of the season is essential for New York's playoff seeding and Bogdanovic's future.
