NBA Predictions: Will Bucks vs. Knicks turn into Defensive Struggle? 2/6/18

Kristaps Porzingis knee

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 23 points, 11 rebounds and six assists as the visiting Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Knicks at Madison Square Garden in a game that included New York's Kristaps Porzingis tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Porzingis suffered a torn ACL, and he will not be on an National Basketball Association court for at least another eight months, possibly 12 months (which means he could miss most of next season to go along with missing the rest of this years National Basketball Association campaign).

In addition to decisions about trades, draft picks and Porzingis' extension, Perry and team president Steve Mills will evaluate Hornacek at the end of the season. Perry said there is now "an opportunity for a lot of younger players to get out there and show what they can do".

Porzingis had at least given NY reason to entertain playoff hopes in a season that started days after Carmelo Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City.

Well, as Murphy's Law states, anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and that pretty much has been the story of the Knicks since even before the iPod came into existence.

Now, though, they just have to hope he can show enough over the final two months of next season - while playing on a minutes restriction for a team nearly certainly bound for a high lottery pick - to prove he can still be the kind of alluring talent that potential free agents would want to play with.

The suicide bomber reportedly blew himself up in a ground where the security personnel were playing volleyball. The attacker had targetted the sports area of the armed forces' unit in the Shareefabad area of the tehsil.

We've endured too many injuries this season, ranging from Gordon Hayward to Kevin Love to Paul Millsap to Mike Conley to DeMarcus Cousins to John Wall to Kawhi Leonard and now to Porzingis.

"Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game", James tweeted. Kristaps "The Unicorn" Porzingis is done for the season and so are the Knicks. When asked about it on Wednesday, Perry said he had no plans to make a coaching change in-season.

The 7-foot-3 Porzingis was the Knicks' leading scorer with 22.7 points per game and he led the National Basketball Association in blocked shots with 2.4 a contest. "We'll be able to move forward from that point". Perry and team president Steve Mills must decide if they're willing to give that kind of money to an injury-prone player coming off a devastating setback.

The deal was completed a day before the NBA's trade deadline, and Williams would have interested contending teams because of his scoring ability and affordable salary.

The Knicks fell to the Bucks, 103-89, dropping in the team standings to 23-32.
